It’s been a while hasn’t it?
Well over 6 months by the looks of it…
So much for moving to Skye for some time-out from the whooshing pace of city living… with each year here my life seems to get busier and busier!
It’s not a bad thing, my life is pretty exciting, but it has meant that I’ve neglected my blog a bit.
I think this is partly because I haven’t known where to start.
It’s a bit like when you see an old friend after a decade apart and they ask what you’ve been up to… so much has happened that you get a bit of a mental block.
I could do a whole essay to try to catch-up but I reckon that would be boring for both of us so instead here’s a quick debrief…
-I’m still living on Skye (and loving it)
-I still spend my days making and selling artwork.
When I’m not doing that I’m usually working on some random charity/conservation/art/outdoors project that pays poorly (if at all) but adds a bit of extracurricular interest.
-The last year has been non-stop. From representing Ordnance Survey at Countryfile Live to scoping out uninhabited islands, it sure hasn’t been quiet (as the saying goes, “you can sleep when you’re dead”. Though I wouldn’t mind a little period of calm!)
-I’m happy and healthy. Single and content. Just plodding along and taking life as it comes really.
There’s only one* thing missing from my life at the moment and that’s been writing and blogging.
It’s the only thing on my To Do list that never gets crossed off!
(The words ‘get back into blogging’ have graced my New Years Resolutions list for at least the last two years in a row)
Technically, I’ve still been documenting my Skye life online, just through other social media sites…
Instagram in particular is a great way of ‘micro-blogging’ (you can find me here). Because you only post a photo at a time with a caption underneath it’s far easier to use on the go than a full-blown blogging site like this.
But it’s not quite the same…
From now on I’ll try and do both.
If you have anything you’d like me to blog about in particular please let me know. Otherwise I’ll just waffle on as before! 🙂
*This isn’t technically true. I’m very much missing having a furry friend around the house. It’s a fact that dogs make life 100% better.
