I’m taking a blogging break. So long. Farewell.

For over a year now, bar a few days I have posted a post.
Some of my posts were even popular, and I have enjoyed a growing following.
However brace yourselves, because all is about to go quiet.photo credit: <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/latente/274852368/">Lisandro M. Enrique</a> via <a href="http://photopin.com">photopin</a> <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/">cc</a>

Come Saturday there will be no My thoughts on a page post.
I will be thoughtless so to speak.
Sunday will see none either, nor any day next week.

I am writing here to warn you in advance,
as I am sure at least a couple of you may miss me.
Some may even become concerned,
and wonder what the blazes happened that Irish one.

Well let me reassure you that this break is only temporary,
I will be back.
I am heading away on holidays.
My nearest and dearest and myself.

My idea of a fantastic holiday is to pack up the car,
and family and drive to West Cork.
I enjoy the lack of heat and have no problem with a couple of rainy days.
So answer me then, why in the name of goodness am I taking a plane and leaving the country?

I suppose it’s because that is what my family wish to do,
and who am I to disagree with them.

Anyway here’s a little video I posted last year.
We have decided to risk the “cheap flights” once more,
but I’m holding my breath we don’t end up regretting it!

I wanted to leave you laughing and this video will definitely do that.

    1. I love it too, glad you did. Thanks a mil colleen. I really feel in need of a break, and even though I’ll hugely miss my blog, and writing, I think a break is good.

  5. I will definitely miss your wonderful posts! I so look forward to them, but I do understand your need for a holiday and I’m sure you will have many stories to tell as only you can! Have a great time!,

      1. I’m trying. Not doing very well tho with it right now (reason for lack of posts), but hopefully I’ll learn how to manage..☺️

        1. Oh Deb its very difficult. What a huge change in your life and the loss of your partner.
          My friend takes solace and hope when she sees others who have survived a similar sadness, and seem to be living even if its a different life.
          Big hugs.

  6. Enjoy – I think it’s important to take a break from blogging sometimes, particularly if you are having a break away – you will come back fired with enthusiasm for another year of blogging. I’m not sure how you manage to do it daily though πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks Lorna. Agreed about taking a full break.My youngest in particular will love to have my undivided attention.
      I never feel it’s a chore to blog, if I want to blog I do, and as it turns out most days I want to, even if its at 11pm at night.
      I’m not sure if the interaction is as much of a drug as the writing. Whatever it is I am so happy I found it. Saves a fortune on counselling!
      Thanks Lorna for always being so supportive. I really appreciate you and others who comment regularly.

  7. Safe travels and have a wonderful holiday!!! Look forward to the blogs that come about after a family vacation. I am sure that there are going to be some fun activities that result in your wonderful since of humor popping out.

  8. Feck that was funny! My husband loves when I use the word Gobshite. We have such a way with language πŸ™‚
    See ya when you get back. Have a lovely holiday!

    1. Thanks Jackie. I too love that word at the right time. It can be so perfectly descriptive, as this video shows. Loved this video from the first time I saw it.
