Life Lately - July 2016

Well, that was an unexpected little blog hiatus.

I was just getting back into a good blogging groove and BAM! Life just got in the way. The end of May is a particularly tough time for me as it is the anniversary of my Mums death. I tend to bury my head in the sand and avoid things, which may not be the healthiest way to deal; I find it works for me. I just needed to turn off and focus on me for a while, and while this blog is something I love doing, I needed to clear my head and step back.

Then at the start of June we found out that Paul was going to be working away for the next 4 months! Just through the week, coming home for weekends. While it is part of his job, we weren't quite expecting it and for such a long period. So it has been an intense transition, and means that my days are incredibly long and tiring, so by the time I get Zoe to bed at 7pm the last thing I want to do is turn on my laptop.

All of this was incredibly bad timing, as I do have some outstanding blog work still to do... So look out for a couple of foodie posts coming in the new few weeks.

I'd love to hear what you guys have been up to, I have missed my little corner of the internet recently.



  1. Ah sometimes a blog break is for the best - sounds like you've had a tough couple of months. Bet you couldn't wait for your OH to step through the door at the weekend xx

    Well I got the shivers, because quite literally last evening I was adding some new links to my blogroll and thought "haven't seen anything of Nelly for a while..."!!! It wasn't hard to figure it was just a matter of "life". Good to see you back. Zoe's little suit is gorgeous! Also really like your new header - nicely done.

    I was away for the whole of June - in the US and Canada... gave me stuff to fill the blog for July and it's still going into August! Other than that, things have been same-same round here. Huggies and welcome back to blogland. YAM xx

  3. Welcome back!! I once unintentionally only posted 8 times in one year so you've a way to go yet ;)

  4. Hope you had a lovely time in the US and Canada. xxx

  5. Nice to have you back although totally understand your need for a break! You are doing so well lone parenting while your OH is away, it's not easy!
