To blog or not to blog


During my recent travels it occurred to me just how time consuming blogging can be. Of course we all love it, or we wouldn't do it, but I'd have to admit that even though I thought about trying to write something during this busy time, it was actually nice to have a break from it! I did not even visit any of the regular blogs that I read and draw inspiration from.

I'd even have to admit that for a split second I toyed with the idea of just not getting back into the loop, but over the last couple of days I have been checking back in and catching up on my blog reading, and who am I kidding?!!! I AM HOOKED! So many clever, talented and INSPIRING people out there that I just can't stay away.

I do feel that I have not given as much time to this blog as I had intended this year, so next year I plan to get back on track with things.

Anyway - thanks for visiting and sticking by me during such inconsistent postings!
...Oh and happy festive season!

ALL IN ONLY FOUR WEEKS!

YES I am back safe and well! What a crazy few weeks have passed me by. Too much to write about, so I have decided on a visual summary! (Please forgive some of the poor quality photos!)

VISITED:
HONG KONG...

CHINA...

QUEENSLAND GOLD COAST...

VICTORIAN COASTAL TOWN ANGLESEA....


LOST 2 KILOS:


Yes, I do mean in weight and I DO mean the hard way! I assume it was something I ate in China, but was sick for quite a few days!

BOUGHT:
Some cool t-shirts in Byron Bay during our Gold Coast visit! (Australian label "Just add Sugar".)



Technically we bought this huge cupboard before my trip, but it was delivered while I was away. We love it!


CELEBRITY MOMENT:

Click on this link for the final reveal of the "other" book series that I have been working on for the last year or so. (I hope I don't sound too stupid in this!)

I also received my first EVER royalty cheque! It's from the "I'm Glad" series I illustrated with another publisher.What a buzz!

READING:
I've never really seen myself as a magazine reader, as I struggle to find ones that interest me. This mix seems to be working for my right now!



WATCHING:
You realise that anything really is possible when you watch this stunning movie!


FACING MY FEARS:


No these are not reminders to attend some fabulous parties, but multiple dental visits! A couple more to go and I can stop the worrying!

Well, that's all the excuses I can think of right now for why I have not blogged for a while!

My "Inspiration Monday" collection is overloaded with things to share, so I will try to find time to share them as I have been promising this for some time now!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
