I often beat myself up for not making time to blog.  I really do enjoy sharing my needlework journey with you.  Not only does it provide me with a platform to share my love of needlework with others who have the same interest, but it also provides me with an opportunity to improve my skills and confidence as a needle worker.

My goal is to complete a minimum of 3 blogs posts a week for both of my blogs, but I usually fall far short.  And I was getting annoyed with myself.  After all, what is holding me back?  Is it the photo opportunities that never seem to appear?  Well, I do work full time, and often am not in the position to take photos while the sun is still above the horizon.  But that should not be an excuse.

Last night I found myself sitting on the couch, half asleep.  I had realized earlier this week that in Term 3 the expectations on my time far outweigh what is available to me.  And that is not going to change.  With 3 children who have extra curricula activities that all seem to occur in July, August and September, a full time job, and a business to run, is it any wonder that I am exhausted?  Add to that the school Presentation Ball that I get involved in, and any spare time that I have needs to be devoted to sleeping.

So I will stop beating myself up.  And plan for the Term holidays.  And hope that Term 4 will be a tad quieter, with my Year 12’s finishing up 2 ½ weeks into the term, so that they can do their exams.  And I will try to post more in Term 4, but I will accept that I may do the bulk of my posting during the school holidays.
