I thought it was about time to sit down and have a cup of coffee again. It's been a while and I bet we have a lot to talk about. So, if we were to have a cuppa together I would share with you the following:
You probably noticed that it has been rather quiet over here in the past 2 weeks or so. You might remember Leonie suffering from pneumonia. I took a few days to take proper care of her and after returning back to work I had to make my way through the workload that had been neglected during that time. Unfortunately my co-worker who subs for me when I am gone (I sub for her as well), isn't that reliable and more of the lazy kind. So, lots of things had piled up on my desk.
And when life takes over and consumes all of you, there is no room for ideas or creativity left which are both required to run a successful blog and to write posts that are worth reading to others. That is why I was gone for a bit.
I would also tell you that I have been really busy knitting lately. I squeezed in an hour of yarn therapy each night before bedtime. It is simply one of the best ways for me to unwind, next to taking the pup on long walks. There is nothing better to clear your mind.
And I would definitely tell you about our summer vaction plans. We have been going back and forth about where to spend it this year. Originally we were looking into traveling Canada for 3 weeks, but a co-worker of the mister quit and so now he can only take off 10 days instead of 4 weeks, so we are going to have to postpone Canada to next year and look for alternatives.
I think we found a quite good one - we are now planning a trip to Tuscany, Italy. I found a few beautiful vacation homes all with a private pool and am now waiting for the landlords' responses whether or not one of them would be available during the time we are planning to travel at the end of August. Please keep your fingers crossed for us!
And last but not least, I would let you know that I was guest blogger over at A Blissful Haven yesterday and would ask you to hop on over and take a look at what I wrote about how to keep your relationship going strong!
But enough of me - now it's your turn! What has been going on in your life lately? I'd love to hear!
Happy Tuesday xxx
