I haven’t been seen on the surface of this pond for a month now. I haven’t gone under, just been incredibly busy with a range of family and work issues. Issues surrounding my sister and organising her memorial dinner and the fund-raising for a scholarship in her name took a lot of coordinating and mental focus as well. I am glad that first anniversary is over.
There has also been massive gardening, yard maintenance, domestic spring cleaning, having acute bronchitis for a week, doing lots of tax stuff and somehow just being busy. Sounds very boring – partly was and partly was absorbing. Working a 40 hour week as well takes it out of you and some nights I just want to veg out. I need to do some maintenance on my retail book website tonight also (www.bookaholics.com.au) so this evening will disappear in a blur as well.
I have been feeling so guilty with not keeping up my regular writing activities though as it is a commitment that I made to myself. I shall return shortly. Promise.
