Fill in the blank to suit - no blog post, no photo a day, no fresh bread; this week I'm especially conscious of all the things I've let slip lately.
Most mornings recently I've thought today might be the day I get back to the Photo A Day challenge but still it's now more than three weeks since I posted anything. I think it's because of the shape the year is taking. This part time work thing is not as easy to manage as it sounds. I've done a lot of the part where I'm not working already this year so now find myself needing to do the work part most of the time. The Photo A Day challenge often needs thinking about and thinking time is what I'm shortest of.
No fresh bread .... well, I'm pleased to say that I've managed to continue the year with a home-made loaf on the go most of the time unless I made a deliberate decision to buy something different for a change. This week, though, no fresh bread because I didn't make it when I intended to. I'm hoping that will be put right soon because the bread has been better than ever. I keep thinking about a post about that but as you'll have noticed ...
And no blog post. Why is that? I've also got an idea for a short article that I've been wanting to write for about a year. I thought I might do that in the winter, but no. Really, very little writing of any sort. What's that about, then?
I've still taken photos, of course. Functional ones of new work (ah yes, the gallery pages of my website also need updating but almost certainly won't be any time soon), documentary ones, in particular of the garden, watching how last year's new plants are coming into their own for a second season and relishing all the new tulips I bought in the autumn, and photos taken for the pleasure of photography, to capture things I've seen and maybe create one or two images I really like.
Wot? No ... real explanation. Not for the lack of blog posts, anyway. Perhaps this will be a (nother) new start.
