Missing from blogging – a quick update

Hi

I wrote this a couple of weeks ago and never got round to publishing it.  I wasn’t quite ready to hit the blogging world with a blog entry at the time, however I thought it important to write a blog post for potential publishing at a later date.  I am glad to say that today is the day that I feel like publishing this particular blog.  Please bear in mind that this was written a couple of weeks ago and I have moved on a little since writing this, an update will be at the end.

Christmas Shopping, Baking, and Forgetting to Pace!

Rose

Well, what a day.   Definitely did not use the art of pacing today!  There is always so much to do at this time of year, from shopping, to baking, to going out with friends and family.  I started out with good intentions and I am pleased to say I succeeded with almost all of them, however I am suffering now with pain and exhaustion!
