Hello! I have a confession to make – I originally hoped to post this up last night as part of a ‘Sunday night feeling’ post, but life took over with some unexpected ‘this needs to be done right now’ tasks and so here I am instead.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been wanting to fine tune my work here on Celebrate Creation for a while now but as I have a full time job (which can be quite demanding) and the usual family and friends juggling act that we all engage in, I find it hard to be as ‘present’ on the blog as I would like. So, over the past two months I’ve set some time aside to complete a blogging e-course and spent some much needed time planning some exciting new content and more regular features. This is going to take some serious organisation on my part, but I now have a blogging schedule for the month of August (for the first time ever) and I’m planning to stick to it!
As part of my new schedule, I’ve decided to run a fortnightly series called ‘recent happenings’. This will allow me to share a little bit of my everyday life with you and hopefully help us to get to know one another better! I don’t know about you, but the main thing that keeps me reading a few blogs regularly is the fact that the blogger shares some of their life with their readers. I guess I’m a bit nosey really but I love to have a sneeky peek into the lives behind the blog I’m reading!
So here’s some of the bits and pieces that have been happening in my life recently…
Visiting: The mid-west of France. T and I spent 10 days in Ronce le Bains recently and enjoyed some good French cuisine, sunshine and relaxation time.
Making: A fox cross stitch for the entryway to our house and an amazing chocolate cheesecake.
Seeing: My family. I just spent a lovely day with my sister this past Saturday which included an afternoon massage at a day spa. Yes.
Planning: To be disciplined and write a little bit everyday for my MA. (I’m currently studying an MA part time alongside my job).
What have you been doing recently? Let me know in the comments below.
