Introspection & Reflection...

I've surfaced today after a week in bed battling a nasty chest infection - blah!

During my time under the doona I've had plenty of time to reflect upon all sorts of things including the multiple balls that I'm trying to keep in the air that I mentioned in the last post.

I've made some rather large decisions, which may not be the best idea when you're under the influence of strong antibiotics and feeling like a giant slug, but decisions have been made....

#1 I'm extending my bloggy break indefinitely - although I know I'll miss my interactions with you tremendously, I really need to do this - thank you for understanding

#2 I'll be handing 'Post Of The Month' Club back to Laura from 'Happy Homemaker' as this is a truly fabulous feature and I'd hate to see it fizzle just because I'm having a bit of a blip

#3 I'm expecting to come back to this space at some point in the future so I'll keep my other regular posts, 'Word Of The Week', 'Vive Le Livre' and the sporadic but fabulous 'Six Senses Tours' on the shelf for now....apologies to those of you who look forward to these treasures

#4 I may pop in to visit you at your space but it will be sporadic at best

#5 I hope to be able to take more glorious photos like the one above of sunrise on our beach - true moments of serendipity are always to be treasured

To all of my longtime and loyal followers and those of you who have recently subscribed to 'Gifts Of Serendipity', I hope you'll stick around as I'm looking forward to returning filled to the brim with sparkle and verve but at the moment all of my energies must be directed towards my health, my family and of course Captain V.

Blessings to all,

  9. Oh Felicity, I am saddened beyond words. I am sorry you are under the weather with that nasty infection and I know you feel awful right now but I wish you would just come by occasionally (once a month?)..just to let us know how you're doing. On the other hand...I know that a living life in between blogposts is a good thing and blogging many times a week is quite stressful and time consuming in itself. I do hope you'll be in contact occasionally. Meanwhile, know that i love you and will miss you and want you to heal and live the most joyful life possible.

  17. Get well soon - I'm prone to chest infections myself so understand how wearing it is, when you are not able to breathe. The most important thing is to look after yourself and get back to 100%

  27. So sorry to hear you've been ill Felicity, hope you are well and truly on the mend now (and hope you are finding the time you need to keep all of those balls in the air!).

    I think we all need a blogging break lately - this year has been a bit crazier for me than I anticipated, so it's meant some months I've only published 5 posts (ideally I'd like to publish at least 14 or so). I miss blogging (and -maybe even more so - commenting on other blogs) when I don't get to it but sometimes something has to give, for the sake of sanity and just getting things done. So, take the time you need and we'll be looking forward to your renewed energy when you return! x

  30. Oh honey. There IS no blog if you don't have the energy to put into yourself first. I understand how blogging and the unnecessary stuff gets put in the back seat when there are more important things to deal with. Like your health.

    Hugs and much love. I hope that you're back on top of things very soon. xxx

  31. Hey babe, I'm finally coming out of the fog from the last few years and trying my hand at blogging again. Going through my 'blogs I follow' list to see who I should visit - and of course I wanted to visit you!!
    Sorry to see you haven't been around for a year either - hope everything is ok, and that you are still shining in your part of the world.
    Email me anytime xxxCate
