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.
