You may have noticed that my attempt at Blogtoberfest failed miserably around the middle of the month when I went AWOL? I had a couple of days of intense illness and wasn't online and then a lot more days of strange symptoms and generally not feeling well. And during the whole process I seem to have completely lost my blogging mojo. It must be off playing with my sewing mojo. If I'm honest the whole blogging community I've felt part of seems to have changed over the last 6 months or so. I'm sure things like Flickr changing, the popularity of Instagram and peoples lives changing have all had an impact on things. At times I've felt I was blogging for the sake of it. This year has been particularly hard and stressful and I think I just need to take a big of a time out from my blog to regroup and see where I go from here.
Last night was the village trivia quiz. The team I was on came second, losing by just three points. We actually got 10/10 on a couple of rounds. (Who knew I'd be able to answer 10 questions by myself on TV theme tunes?!)
Before the quiz my friend Sal came round. We hadn't caught up in ages. This year seems to have sucked so much time out of life. Due to another move she'd had to have a sort out of more of her possessions and asked me if I wanted the following sewing/craft books. At least whilst I'm not blogging I'll have plenty to inspire me.
