A Safe Space

Here I am. I clicked on the "publish a post" button and I'm going to do it.

First, let me set the scene. Its 11am, the sun is hot and streaming into our lounge and I am really rather hot in my robe. I've been absent from my blog lately. This precious space I carved out.

I've been absent for a few reasons. They are becoming clearer to me every day as I lead up to this holiday season. Mostly spiritually and emotionally. My focus has been elsewhere, trying to figure things out, going into hybernation, protection, a safe space.

Blogging every day is a vulnerable thing. For the last wee while I have been protecting myself from that. I didn't mean to, it just sort of happened. And when it did it was lovely.

I wish I could say I have been doing all of these other things instead but I haven't been. I have been laying on the couch, mostly sick, and keeping one eye on our toddler. For a week MrMoo was overseas. Remind me in the future to never to be a solo parent ever.

In other news, I found my Blog Book today. It was inside a recipe book in our little stack of them in the pantry. Perhaps MrMoo was sick of my blogging and hid it in a place he thought I would never look!? Very clever.

 I'll be back before you even noticed I was gone, but dont miss me too much okay?


  1. Lovely to see a post from you - I understand re 'a safe space' blogging can be very vulnerable -
    Solo parenting is def not fun! But you survived - go you xxx
    Do what you can, forget about the rest and look after YOU! You are important! A healthy happy wife/Mama is a healthy happy household/life xxx

  2. actually you've been in my heart all week and I've been meaning to email you. Sending you lots of love xxxx

  3. Thinking of you! Take care of yourself first, blogging can wait!
    So happy for you that you found your blogging book again- yay!

  4. I heard a good saying re: blogging - real life always comes first. Take it easy, take care of yourself and your family, and don't feel any need to make excuses for doing that because, after all, you are a human, and this is just a computer. Love to you! xxx

  5. it just has to be done sometimes. especially lying on the couch. i just cant get off it! how hard is 4-7pm when husbands away-it makes me want to lie on the couch just thinking about it! take it easy and we will see you when we see you xxx

  6. Yey that you found your book!! Hope you're starting to feel better and that Mr Moo has been looking after you since he's been back. Thinking of you xxxx

  7. I hope you're feeling a lot better Sophie. And great news you found your blogging notebook again.
    Look after yourself.


  8. P.S: I forgot to tell you about this: http://tallshortandtiny.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/sharing-the-love/

  9. I'm glad I'm not the only one to eclipse from the blog world every now and again!! Glad you found the blog-book. Mine is my diary, but of late it has been all business no play, my New Year's resolution is definitely to be more creative!!
