You may have noticed some inactivity here. I think I am suffering blog fatigue – I have been blogging for almost three years now and seem to have run out of voomah. It’s not through lack of things to write about. I am reading widely, trying to finish the first draft of my novel, am poised to return home to South Africa for the first time in three years for a dream holiday, and am living life to the full.
I am going to take some time off, so expect sporadic, and possibly no, posting for a few weeks. I will still be visiting blogs and commenting when I’m moved to, but I feel the time has come to take a break. Thank you to everyone who visits here – I really appreciate your support, and I hope that when I do return it is with my usual energy and verve. (Right now, I am channelling that verve into losing my Winterspeck and dreaming about Robberg Beach and seeing all my darling South African friends and family.)
And if you would like to know what I will be getting up to in the coming weeks, one of the highlights of the Burg’s calendar is the Sommertagszug, where we banish winter and welcome in summer. My kids will taking part in the procession and a teacher roped me in last night to help with crafting the costumes (oh, little does she know). Instead of writing here, I will be making giant butterfly wings. You can understand quite how much fun that is.
Until I return, I wish you all well. May the blogging muse continue to visit you, and thank you for being consistently brilliant, funny and well-written. You still make my day.
