Bonkers Interruptus - A Quick Update

I realise it is over two weeks since my last post, so I thought I should write a quick line to explain that I have been uncharacteristically swamped with work lately.  A recent spate of projects has meant a series of early starts, late finishes and lost weekends, and this general pattern looks set to persist till the end of the month, though I hope to regain the weekends at least.  I am not complaining, as I had hardly any work at all last year, but it is hard to find time for hobbies - or even chores.  I have put off a dentist's appointment three times!  I am almost out of kitchen roll!  Okay...so however busy I am, I somehow manage to dip into Facebook still, but that connection with the outside world is helping to keep me going... ;-)

Now I do have lots of posts in mind for when I get the work-life-Facebook balance back again.  Meanwhile, here is a photo of a butterfly garden bench I spotted on the Interwebs.  I would love some vintage style patio furniture as it happens, but I think this might be too overtly flittersniffer-y even for me.

I always say that a lot of work is much better than the alternative.

Comeback when you have time - we'll be around.

Ines said...

No, I think the bench is quite lovely. :) If you find one, you definitely need it. ;)

Hi Undina,

Thanks for your understanding. It is indeed much better to have work than not in what still are very unpredictable times. I only wish I wasn't so tired! I feel I could sleep for weeks whereas in fact I am finding sleep is eluding me. :-)

Hi Ines,

Oh, it is interesting to get your take on the bench. I do like it, but worry that it would make too much of a statement in my small garden and that I should go for a more classic design.

It's nice to check in with you V! I'm glad you've got plenty of work but hope the sleeping/weekend situation improves soon.

I'm pleased you still make time for posting on Facebook or life would be a lot duller.

I think a less grand version of that bench would be lovely.

Vanessa, I know how you feel when work and other commitments take over. It is a good thing in some ways, but a bit frustrating in others. Look forward to seeing you back soon.

Hi tara,

It might only be a week from now till I am through this current busy phase - as they just lopped a week off the job timetable! So that has its own challenges... ;-)

I am glad you approve of my ongoing Facebook habit. A little humour lightens the load for sure!

Hi Michael,

I know that you can relate as your own job is very demanding at times.

I hope to be back shortly!
