I’m sure you’ve heard of the domino effect – a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then causes another similar change, and so on…
A while back I decided to take a small break from blogging so I could catch up on my photography studies and assignments.
Then we started building our new front fence and suddenly that break got extended as I needed to paint lots of timber. This is still ongoing by the way …. but there has been progress! We are nearly there – just 100 or so more palings to paint two coats on and then they can go up, along with the post tops! Here are some photo’s I posted to Instagram over the weekend.
Also my kids are on uni break (still) and this means me driving them here and there and them having friends over and so on.
Then NSW school holidays came about and my sister has been visiting from Sydney with her two children. They are staying with my parents on the other side of Brisbane but came down to my sister and her husband (who live near to us) for the weekend and the kids spent Friday night and most of Saturday with us. We always love having them and they love coming to us – more for the dogs than us though! Lol
So the domino effect took place and my small break has turned into a long break with the occasional post here and there!
Because of the all the painting and building of the fence, my photography studies have fallen behind again so I am still needing to play catch ups!
I can assure you that I have not given up on my blog or my 365 Grateful Project but sometimes life gets busy and the juggling gets a little difficult and one of the balls gets dropped now and then.
Eventually things will settle down and all will be back to normal. In the meantime, I still have painting to do in order to get this fence finished and my garage back (all the timber and paint tins etc are in the garage). No painting today though. This morning I took my dogs (Ava and Chelsea) to the groomers. I pick them up at 12 noon. The house feels so empty without them! I’m also waiting for the groceries to arrive. Why is it that they come bang on 10am when the dogs are here and when I need them to come early because I have to go out and pick up the dogs at 12 – they still haven’t arrived!
By the way, have you entered the competition I’m running where you can win a Wenatex pillow valued at $320? If you haven’t – why not go for it. You’ve got to be in it to win it! These pillows are fantastic – totally free of any chemicals, toxins or allergens. Go check out the post here!
I’ll pop in again now and then until things get back to normal.
Ciao for now!
Linking up with Essentially Jess and IBOT
