So, after a busy old year and a hell of a lot of content created (215 posts in fact!), I’m signing off until 2018. I’ve ummed and ahhed about taking a little break over the festive period, but with a jam packed diary full of commitments over the next couple of weeks (including the small task of starting a new job…) I’ve decided that it’s probably best for me to log out of WordPress until the new year.
I think it will do me the world of good to spend a few weeks outside of the blogging bubble. I love writing and taking photos and putting posts together for you all so much, but it takes up a big chunk of time and energy, and I’m excited to give my brain a little bit of a rest without the pressure of sticking to any sort of schedule.
Instead I’ll be working my way through the books on my “to read” list, catching up with friends and making the most of every moment spent with our families. Christmas comes but once a year and I want to thoroughly enjoy it, rather than worrying that I haven’t put that week’s favourites up or brainstorming ideas when I’d rather be watching cheesy TV re-runs.
I’ll be back on January 1st (which just so happens to be a Monday, am I the only one who finds this incredibly pleasing?!) with lots of new content and a couple of very exciting projects that I can’t wait to share with you all, but for now I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a very Merry Christmas before I take a break.
This year has been such a big year for me and it’s meant the absolute world to have you along for the ride. The lovely comments, tweets and emails have kept me blogging through some difficult and busy times, and I’ve had some incredible opportunities as a result. I hope that you’ll all join me next year for even more fun and games.
And in the meantime, I hope the festive season brings you all of the joy, love and rest that you need. See you in 2018!
