Summer holidays can be very distracting.
Even though Mr Books & have been back at work 2 weeks, the kids are still on holidays, hanging around the house, looking to be amused and occasionally refereed!
Thankfully Mr Books works from home. But it does mean that his work schedule is regularly interrupted and our family life is far from normal and routine.
Which is a good thing right?
We all need a break from our day to day routine.
It's good to shake things up, do things differently & have new experiences (Sydney in January is Festival month - shows, events, exhibitions that provide 4 weeks of non-stop experiences if you so wish! Check out my other blog to get a taste of The Sydney Festival).
However all of these new experiences and breaks from routine have left me very little time for blogging.
I have several half-baked reviews sitting in the wings, waiting to be finalised. I've trolled some of your sites during the quieter moments, but I haven't had the time or inspiration to leave thoughtful comments.
School goes back next week.
We have new uniforms, bags, books, pencil cases, shoes and haircuts!
Routine, everyday life is just around the corner.
And, just quietly, between you and me, I'm ready for it.
I've missed writing and I've missed all of you.
P.S. Please remind me of this sentiment when we're in the middle of HSC hysteria with our eldest later on in the year!
