Taking a Break

I'm going to be taking a short break from blogging.  I'm feeling just a teeny bit exhausted at the moment and think I need to unplug for a while.

I can't do anything about the number of hours I'm required to be at work, but for the rest I want to take advantage of the longer evenings and all too fleeting Irish summer and spend as much time as I can outside in the garden and the magical surrounding countryside.

A little while ago Megan from Storybook Love Affair asked if I write any stories besides keeping this blog.  I haven't written anything for a long time, but some of my recent posts and the wonderful people I've met through the blog have made me feel enthusiastic about writing again.  Perhaps I'll find a tree to sit under and scribble away.

I hope you will forgive me if I don't come by to visit as frequently as I usually do.  

I also hope that you will come back to visit me when I return.

In the meantime

I'll cross my fingers that you enjoy your break and pacify myself reading your 2011 posts while you are gone. I'm still a new follower so have lots of old posts to read to get to know you!

Sharon, you take that break. We all need that sometimes, and do sit under a tree and be inspired. Your writing is great.

Relax and refresh!

Sharon I'm going to miss you! Have a lovely relaxing time - but don't forget to come back and tell us all about it!

Enjoy your break Sharon. I have been feeling somewhat the same. The beautiful weather and my garden are calling me to come outside more and more these days. ~~ Diane

Enjoy your break Sharon, it's funny because I've been feeling the same lately. It's nice to take time away from blogging sometimes. Looking forward to your return though! :)

Hi Sharon, I do remember. I’ve looked for a copy at every book fair and auction I’ve been to since but without any luck, obviously very scarce. However, $382 is an amazing price for such a small book! The second one listed is in beautiful condition – unused publisher’s file copies are always the best ones to get. I hope you win the lottery next week, then you can treat yourself and maybe do a blog post about it at a later date! I hope you are enjoying your break – I was going to take the weekend off, but it’s wet and grey in Somerset today (Sunday) so I’m catching up with a few emails. I’ve decided I’m going to watch the river pageant on TV this afternoon and maybe get out to a couple of things on Monday and Tuesday. We visited the Templecombe medieval pageant yesterday, really good day with lots of sunshine.
Sorry to leave this message on your blog – but I was unable to reply via Kontactr - don’t know why. Barbara

Enjoy your break Sharon and know I am thinking about you. It is difficult to sit behind the computer when the weather is so nice outside.
