A little slice of life

My engagement with WordPress has been hampered of late by life. Life, it seems, often gets in the way of many things and for me it’s getting in the way of writing, and of reading your blogs. My perpetual flow of poetry has dried up to a mere trickle as I occupy myself with other artistic projects and with lifestyle changes.

The problems are (in no particular order): the new kitchen disruption, the kids and the school holidays.  I’m not going to rant on about how poor little me doesn’t have any time to herself, but it certainly feels like the kids have been on constant hols since early April.  The kitchen is finished except for the worktop and tiles, the worktop will be installed sometime next week but there’s no schedule on the tiles as we haven’t even selected them yet.  Once the worktop is in place we can return all the kitchen stuff to the kitchen instead of it beng scattered everywhere around the house and by the time that’s done, I’m sure the kids will be on holiday again!

I want to be productive but it’s like I can’t hold an idea in my mind long enough to action it, so I guess not much is being achieved, although not being able to remember what it is that I’m not doing means I can’t stress about it not being done!

For now, I’ll say goodbye and wish you a good day, while I try to remember what it was I was going to do. . .

  1. Sounds like you could do with a little break, Karen. Any chance you can pencil in a breather, take some time for yourself to recharge? When do the kids go back to school, is that next Monday? I can’t keep up with the school holidays any more; I don’t have children but from my outsiders perspective it feels like there’s been school hols quite regularly since April, too! xx
