Poor neglected blog

I used to really enjoy keeping this blog, and it was a great record of things we were doing and how I felt about them.

These days, though, I don't seem to have either the time or the inclination to update it.

Mum is very ill; the breast cancer that she had in 2004 has metastasised to her bones and pancreas. She has been in and out of hospital, and I have been spending as much time with her and dad as I can. I go up every weekend, which doesn't leave much time for other things, since I'm at work from 8.30 till 5 every day.

I can't write about most of what happens at work for obvious reason (student confidentiality; career prospects), and I don't really like to write too much about the children either, since they have all got to the age where they wouldn't like me sharing too much information about them on the internet.

So I'm not sure where this blog is going... On the one hand I hate to abandon it; on the other hand, maybe it doesn't fit into my life at the moment.

Annalise, I am so sorry about your mother. I am going through the same with mine (hers started as uterine, not breast), so my heart really goes out to you.

So sorry about your mom. Spend as much time with her as you can.

About the blog. It is yours, you can do what you want, for now just leave it out there and write if you feel like it but don't feel guilty if you don't write or don't feel like it.
