The month of August is out!

My apologies for being such a bad blogger recently but the summer holidays have taken over and there just doesn't seem to be much time left available for blogging and catching up with my blogging pals.

So I have made a decision to take the month of August off from my blog, in order to come back fully refreshed when the kids go back to school in September. I can't see the point in stressing myself out and attempting every day to get on the computer, when I am struggling to even find time to keep up with the ironing, the washing, the cooking and everything else that seems to multiple during school holidays. I have barely picked up a book to read since the kids have been off, so I definitely know I don't have time to write my blog.

I hope you will all stay with me and be around when I get back. I am contactable on Facebook as well as via email. I hope to pop in and out and read some of your posts when I get a chance, but I won't be writing any until September. If you want me to read a certain post you know I will like then add it on to this post and I will come back and check regularly.

I will keep all the books I have read to one side and will review them when I get back.

Have a fabulous August and I will see you all in September.

  2. Enjoy your summer with the little ones. They grow up too fast and you'll miss this time with them. And as for ironing...bleh.

  13. Enjoy your break, Vivienne! Sometimes it is impossible to keep up with everything, and summer is a good time to relax a bit more. I took a short break in July due to a vacation, and returned refreshed and ready to blog again. :)

  18. I'm still here and will be when you come back. :D I totally understand about needing some time out. I've been more or less missing from the blogosphere for the last 2 months or so. Sometimes we just need time away from internet land to focus on reality. :) Have a good August though and I hope you're getting better weather there than here in Wales - lovely, lovely rain(!)

  20. Just by the way, which Alice Hoffman books do you have/have you read? Only I have three here that I'm about to drop off to a charity shop - I can send them to you instead, if you like? Local Girls, Illumination Night and The Probable Future. Let me know! Hope you're enjoying your time off!
