hello and happy monday everyone. it's been a long, long time since i have logged in here for numerous reasons and before i return to regular posting i wanted to reflect on this past week here in Boston. so many of you sent me lovely emails, facebook  messages and tweets during the week and i want to let you all know that we are safe and sound. we did not go to watch the race in Boston, lucky for us, but thank you all so much for your concern. it's really lovely to know that we were in your thoughts. we actually live far out in the burbs and so the events did not interfere with our day-to-day other than keep us glued to the T.V. in a really unhealthy manner but we are heart-broken for the victims and the families of those caught up in this awful tragedy. it's a very sad time for the people of Boston.

i had been missing in action here mainly due to one broke down laptop. initially that kept me away but as the days passed i realised that even though i could manage posting i began to feel as though i really didn't want to and so took a break from social media. no blogging, tweeting, facebooking.....i barely checked emails.  i am sure you are all well aware how easy it is to get caught up and distracted by the next blogpost or tweet and that quick look online can turn into hours of mindless surfing. in the last few weeks i have began training for a half marathon, spent a lot of time with my boys, started the spring clean on my garden and the closets ( the joy of having seasons ), worked on the webstore and basically found some balance......it's been nice.

but of course i couldn't stay away forever and do promise that regular posting will resume this week. if you do feel as though you would like to help the marathon victims in any way there is some useful information here.

  1. Great to hear missus that all is well with you. The events of last week were shocking and gripping. Definitely an element of the macabre about it as it felt like everyone I knew back here was gripped with the never-ending twists of the week that was. My hearts go out to all the families affected by this horrible event. Terroism anywhere to anyone is vile. x Sinead
