Firstly, apologies to any regular readers who will have noticed we’ve been a little quiet of late
Work and life in general seems to have been non stop for us both recently
So much so, that not only have we not managed to tick off all the challenges we set ourselves on our August Checklist, we haven’t set September’s – and it’s nearly October!
What went wrong?
Is it a case of us being too busy/tired/lazy to keep the blog up to date?
Our blog doesn’t have a specific subject because it’s intended to be a reflection of our many interests and hobbies
Perhaps this is part of the problem – when you’re taking photos, making cakes, thrift shopping, letterpressing, visiting new places, going to gigs, keeping up with other blogs, catching up with TV and radio shows, seeing friends… etc etc etc – but also working in demanding full time jobs – you can sometimes find yourself spread a little thinly and it’s easy to get distracted seeing projects through to completion
Sometimes juggling so many projects and interests – as much as you enjoy them – can be wearing, and when the working day is so full-on it’s easy to get swept away by it all
Sometimes there is little room for anything else when you feel physically drained, it’s hard to muster up creative energy and fitting in the things you enjoy most can become a challenge
And sometimes remembering to photograph everything, take time out to write about our experiences, and keep ideas interesting and fresh on the blog is just another thing for the to-do list
But this doesn’t mean we’re giving up!
We still really love having the blog and love reading your comments!
It’s all just a matter of balance
Can you find the life/work/blog juggling a little tough sometimes? How do you manage your time? Any tips?!
