A break and some hats
It's been a while since I've posted and I just wanted to come here and say I'm taking a blogging break for a short while.
Real life is busy and fun, and we're coming out of our winter hibernation and doing and seeing and meeting again, so my days are full.
And I've taken up crochet again, and I'm reading more novels, watching good movies, and I'm addicted to Candy Crush. Level 53 has me stumped at the minute though.
This will be a short break, possibly only days. Then I'll come back and blog with a vengeance about the atrocious homophobia in Ireland, which is brewing in me at the moment.
And, woah! I just checked my blog view stats and followed a link to an online discussion where my blog was mentioned. And the negativity about me breastfeeding my own children has my blood boiling. All from other mothers might I add.
I've been wondering of late why I'm continuing to blog at all, as I feel less willing to share personal details online. And to see how a crowd of strangers can just sit there judging me and calling me names makes me really sick. Then again, I think there should be positive voices online about mothering, and I'd like to think I contribute to that. Though maybe I'm too far off the radar for people to want to read my stories.
I'll mull on it a while and see how I feel.
