It’s been a while since I last blogged (and even that blog was a long time coming), so I thought I’d touch base and let you know what’s happening.
Okay, let me start by telling you I haven’t given up blogging. I realise I’ve dropped the ball in terms of posting every day (though it had to happen eventually—I think was a little too ambitious for my own good), but I still intend on posting whenever I can.
So why has it been so long between posts?
Well, in early April I went on holidays for a week or so to spend time with friends of ours, as well as to clear my mind and give me time to think about a few issues. And while I could have spent a few hours each day writing posts with my iPhone, I had far better things to do—like walking along the beach.
I posted the night I got back to Brisbane, and thought I’d be able to quickly slip back into the routine. But instead of heading to my computer at night, I found I was heading straight to bed.
It seems that while the medication I’m on stops some people from sleeping, it’s having the opposite effect on me. For the past few weeks it’s been a real struggle staying awake past nine o’clock. (Having a contact lens that isn’t quite the right prescription is also making me feel tired pretty quickly.) And considering I don’t usually start writing my blog posts before ten, this is proving to be a real problem.
I’ve been told by a good friend of mine that this will pass, and that I’ll soon be back to my normal self (well, better than my normal self, actually). But for now I’m afraid you’re just going to have to put up a bit of sporadic posting until my body sorts itself out.
In the meantime, thank you all for your support and your kind words of encouragement. I may not have thanked you individually, but believe me it’s very much appreciated.
