HELLO DEAR FOLLOWERS,
Where have you been I hear you cry? Not a word since October...
The break was not planned but it was needed.
Over the past few months, I've had to take a step back from work, blogging and other interests to devote extra time to other more pressing and important matters. My daughter being one of them, she has been going through a number of emotional and personal difficulties, including high levels of anxiety and sleeping problems.
Hard for an 11 year to deal with.
There is also a close member of my family who is very ill and that has had a strong impact on me. This person is a fighter, never complains and has endured a lot. It is so hard to see a loved one having to go through that. I have so much love, respect and admiration for this person. The past couple of years have been an emotional rollercoaster, especially over the past 9 months.
Two months ago, I closed the unit which I was renting and for now have put fairs on hold. I admit that I was very disappointed as I had put so much work into the new shop which was about to be launched online but I just couldn't do it all and give Miss P the time and support she needed and still needs. No question about it, Miss P comes first!
When things have settled then I will start again little by little...
One of the reasons I didn't continue with my blog is that during these past few months life has felt very serious and I didn't want my blog posts to reflect that. Talking about vintage pretties seemed so trivial, my heart wasn't in it. Besides, no one wants to read about moaning and feeling low.
I have always wanted my blog to be a happy one, filled with inspiration, escapism, travel and optimism. I know, real life is not like that though...
Having said I felt I owed all my devoted followers an explanation for simply disappearing without a word...
I think that it will do me good to go back to blogging, I am in need of a bit of fun /distraction and to reconnect with all you lovely people out there!
I strongly believe in the power of prayer and would ask you to pray for my relative please. Thank you
Thank you to those of you wishing me well and asking after me. It was lovely for me to know that despite me not blogging your thoughts were with me.
Just a little note to say that The Vintage Bazaar Fair will be on at the Cheese and Grain in Frome, Somerset on Saturday 21st April 2012. Be sure to be there, it is one of the best vintage fairs. The standard is always very high! I won't have a stall there this time but I will be going to visit.
