|I couldn't write my blog because I was very very busy.|
I'm proud to say I can rationalise for Australia. Here is why I didn't blog for 11 (!) weeks.
1. It was school holidays. Please do NOT remind me that my last post was on the 21st of November which was several weeks before holidays began. It was in the final frenzied, last gasp whirlwind of madness that is late November/early December and I had lost my blogging oomph. Luckily my drinking, eating, Christmas shopping and socialising oomph's were still going strong.
|Aaah school holidays. Doncha just love 'em.|
3. I was too tired to blog. See 2. It's true, I was tired. Both my body and soul were tired. But no more tired than anyone else's body or soul, and certainly less tired than many.
4. We were away. Yes but LAPTOP. Yes but WIFI. Yes but I managed to keep up pretty well last year. I even did work last Christmas holidays. The experience of trying to work while on a family beach holiday last year was so scarring that it caused me to refuse all work for December or January this year. There are many, many people who can manage to do work and have their kids on holidays at the same time. I have even been one of these people. But not this time. Not this year.
5. I was reinventing myself/blog. Well that's a complete lie. As you can see it's not changed in the slightest. I toyed with trying a new direction but as yet my new direction is still an idea and a few notebook pages of thoughts. Until it comes together you'll still be able to read the same self absorbed, stream of consciousness stuff I've always done.

|Josh, not needing me.|
No one's calling DOCS (or should that be DOBS) because a blog has been neglected for 11 weeks.
By not blogging I have caused no real harm, only to myself. Because not having a creative outlet does make me a bit bonkers. It's like all the words in my head fill up and fill up and whirl around until my head explodes. When this happens it's not pretty.
Thank you to all the lovely people who said they missed it. I missed writing it.
