An Update From Me

Home » Blogging » An Update From Me

It’s not like me to have a day off from my blog, but I have needed to step away for a few days, and maybe even the next few too.

I don’t want to (right now) go into the ins and outs, but I wanted to write this update to let you know what is going on.

There are lots of things for me to catch up on…

I’ve had several people ask me when the next instalment of Dine Around Disney 2014 is coming… so just a heads up that I haven’t forgotten to write it… these posts simply take me a long time to get written – often several days…! Why? Well, it takes me time to go through the photos from each day (some days I have 1000 of them!) delete the rubbish ones, edit the ones I want to keep, decide which ones to share on my blog, watermark and name them, upload them, remember what we did on that day, decide which photos to use, decide where they should go in the trip report story, read through it all, divide it up into several posts because I share a lot of my photos, and then finally hit publish!

I’ve also got recipes to share, my Project 365 : 2015, days out and other content I have planned… I haven’t forgotten… it’s all just taking time.

In between everything, I’m doing a lot of work behind the scenes on my blog, with a revamp coming soon – once I’ve decided the best way to go. I am hoping to make things easier to navigate on my blog and add more structure so you can find things a lot easier. At heart I’m a perfectionist, and if something isn’t “just so” I struggle moving forward. So I can’t do the next thing, if the previous one isn’t perfect (to me!)





And of course, going right back to the top of this post… some days are just really, really hard. I’m also a mum, a wife, a sister, an auntie and a friend… and splitting myself up to help everyone is, at the moment, a stressful juggling act.

When your head is not in the right place, it makes everything all the more difficult.

I will be back as soon as possible, but in the mean time there are the archives on my blog (I’ve published nearly 3000 of them over the years!!) so there is loads of stuff to read through!

Here they are for each year… 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
