"Dear blogging & local friends,
Please can I have an 'excused' note for another week or so on getting around to all your blogs or calling/emailing/seeing you. I know a few of you have wondered why I have not been around, so here's why.
Well the honest truth is I am as us Brit's put it so succintly - knackered! Obviously I have my mum staying with me and although that's fun, it's always a bit tiring having a guest in your home, even when they're family and she does all your housework. As a result we have also been doing more, going out and visiting with others alot or having them here.
But I have also been going into work at 7am most mornings to pack in the hours I need to get done as the new school year rapidly approaches, and to earn some money! Then I come home and my mum and I will do something for the rest of the day.
The Hubster is similarly worn out, in fact he went to bed at 8:25pm tonight and I am just about to join him. So if you haven't had an email from me this month, or I haven't called you or commented on your blog - I haven't forgotten you and will be in touch soon!
Trust me - I never go to bed this early!"
