I have been thinking and sewing

Red shoes.

Hello peeps,

Yes, I am still here.  Just.  I have been thinking of finishing my blog.  I could not see any point to it.  I could not be bothered with it. I had no desire to blog.  I don't know why, but today I am feeling different.

After a good think about it, I believe it is more than OK to blog when ever I like.  That could be a few times a week, or a few times a month.  I actually write one blog post, or more, almost every day - in my head.  I some how can't quite manage to publish most of them.  It usually comes down to time and not having enough of it.  Little girls and Shropshire boys need to be fed.  Clothes need to be washed.  Little girls love to have lots of tea parties, how can I refuse them?

Now my sewing space is all set up, I am managing to sew almost everyday.  Instead of turning the computer on, I turn on my sewing machine and I am absolutely loving it.  Maybe this year I really will make more Christmas presents than last year?  Maybe one day soon Ill get around to making some new shirts and dresses for me.

I hope you are having a lovely Wednesday.

Until next time, whenever that may be, cheerio.

  1. So glad that you decided not to stop your blog. It should be something that you enjoy and it shouldn't be a job. I've been blogging for over five years now and I can't say that I've been as regular as I am now. But I know the time will come when I get tired of it. But I'll never shut it down. It's got too many good memories in it!

    Glad you had a small break and decided that you're inspired again!

    How are you settling in?


  2. pleased you are keeping it going. I was pondering the same thing last week and posted about it... now I suddenly feel inspired again. but it has to be when it feels right.

  3. When I first started blogging I felt in control of it, then I started to respond to what I thought people wanted and posted every day. Now I am getting back to posting when I think I have something to say or just want to. I really like this post, your honesty and that you have decided to keep going on your own timetable! Have a lovely week, Cat!

  4. Blogging should be fun and not stress. So blog anytime you want and have time and not because someone said you should do it twice a week or so.
    Relax! Enjoy life!

  5. don't go!! blogging should be fun.
    I don't post often lately, once a week, may be a little longer this time.
    do what feels right, it's your blog & you make up the rules.

    sending you cuggles lovely friend ♥

  6. Oh good on you Cat. I think your decision is a good one. I feel exactly the same way, in that I only post when I really have something I wish to write about and not just because.
    Personally, I love your blog and am more than happy to read your posts, daily, weekly or monthly, whatever makes you feel good. You always post such interesting and pretty posts, so I'll be here whenever you decide to write :o) xo

  7. I've seen so many bloggers post similar posts over the past 6 months - I think we put so much pressure on ourselves, it turns something that should be fun in to something that is a stressful addition to our already big to-do lists! Anyway, your blog is your blog is your blog, and you should blog as often or as little as you want/can. That said, I'm glad you've decided to stick with it :)


Thank you for your comments. I always try to reply back to you and/or check out your blog, but some days this is not possible. Nice to meet you. Cat
