Why no blogging???

This is the question I have been asking myself this weekend. What has happened to my blogging addiction?? I had a fantastic time this afternoon following a blog hop set up by Mel. It was themed 'All about me', so it got me thinking all about me!! (Do pop over to her blog and look at some of the fantastic projects there is a whole lot of talent out there!!)

I think I have great excuses not to blog, the usual 'I haven't enough time' springs to mind immediately. This is truer than ever as a few things have changed recently at the house of Furrypig........

DH got a job (hurrah... was nearly 6 months) but it is in Worcester (boo hiss.... not at Worcester as it sounds a wonderful place) but this means he is away Monday to Friday and just back for weekends. He also took the lappy with him, which is great as we can skype every day and the kids love it, but I am left with the desk top so it means I cannot multitask whilst blogging/surfing . I often used the pc whilst cooking, watching tv, supervising kids etc etc but the desk top is upstairs in the study so not as easy and I have been nipping on in the evenings before bed time and then I just end up going to bed!!

I take DH to the station every Monday morning and this means getting up at 5.15am which seems to leave me tired for the rest of the week. (it saves £11 on cab fare though so I do it so I can spend £10 on craft stash...... well that was my reasoning!)

I have just started a university course one day a week that ends in December. It is called 'Independant and Supplementary Prescribing' and basically means I can write prescriptions like a Doctor if/when I pass. It is all day Tuesday and means I have to have childcare for DS pre and post school and be more organised. Plus it is not an easy course with 3 written assignments, practical assignments, and 2 written exams!! Tuesdays used to be a quiet day with just 3 hours at work now it is my longest day of the week, though I should be getting the time back from work.

Work has been stressful as there are loads of changes happening there and I am nervous of change! The future is unclear for us at the moment but I am trying to remain optimstic, but sadly a really wonderful colleague has resigned and this will be a huge loss for the clinic. Not gonna waste any more blog time discussing work as it makes me start feeling anxious again.

I had a funny patch of skin and a Dr at work suggested I ask the GP for a dermatology opinion. I had that the first week in May, followed by a skin biopsy the second week in May and my stitch came out the third week in May. As we approach the fourth week in May I am waiting for the results, I know what the likely diagnosis is and although it sounds awful, it should be fine and it should involve just a simple treatment and therefore a simple cure. But it is unknown at the moment and it is a bit of a worry and I didn't want to discuss it with people which made it harder. It actually made it impossible when I turned up for work with a big pressure dressing on my head that stayed on for 48 hours!! I did get lots of questions so now everyone knows I have had a biopsy and we will wait and see............

My camera broke! I was gutted and meant an end to project 365 for me as got all in a muddle trying to use DH's digital SLR, tho' I am getting better but I do miss my little point and shoot camera as it was so easy to have in my bag/take everywhere. I may get it mended so will get a quote and see if not will ask for a new one for my birthday later in the year. In the meantime I need to learn how to use the big one!

I have managed some Layouts from my first ever Shimelle class that I loved and can't wait to do another one! I have also made several cards so will get round to blogging pics at some point. I have missed keeping up with all your blogs as I felt so many of you were my friends as I had daily insights into your world. I am trying to get back on track and keep up and also think it will help me to blog through some of the experiences as writing things down has always been a helpful therapy for me and hopefully it will mean I won't need to access any real therapy as I do feel I am getting rather anxious at times. Reading your posts also is a form of therapy for me as the insights and creativeness are just what the doctor (or independant prescriber!) ordered!

So I will make more of an effort to blog....... I hope xxx
