Taking a sabbatical

I have decided to take a little break from blogging as I have other things on my mind at the moment.

I have had an issue with my blood pressure, as a result of the medication changes I am going through to do with my thyroid. It's now coming back under control after some further changes, but I just need to concentrate on myself for awhile. Plus my brother in England has a mystery problem and is going into hospital for some tests tomorrow, this is playing on my mind alot.

I'm also staying busy doing jobs around home and so my mind and heart just aren't in it right now. I'll be back when my worries are settled, in the meantime take care.

I'll miss your blog, which I check several times a day. Take care of yourself; that must come first. Best regards to your hubby, as well.

Have a well earned rest and come back renewed. Hope all is well with your brother.
Blessings, Star

Understand Sarah..Life happens.
Take care of the problems, get your health on track, and that of your brother's and we'll be here waiting, when you return.
Treat yourself to a bacon butty or two ;)

Here's hoping both you and your brother are healthy again soon. Thanks for warning us that you won't be blogging for a while and telling us why - you know we all would have been wondering (and thinking the worst) if you'd suddenly gone silent!

I think that I'm getting to where I might need a break myself sometime soon.

I hope all is well with your brother and be sure to take care of yourself! Cause without you, this blog wouldn't be possible. I'll miss all your great Brit humor, but I hope you can come back to blogland refreshed and revived.

Pat said...

I, too, am glad you let us know about your sabbatical because I would have been worried about you. As I've said before, you make me laugh nearly every day. A day without Brit Gal is like a day without sunshine. I'll pray for your good health as well as for your brother's.

Girl, take care of yourself. Blogging is fun, but face it, it is just a hobby really and not real life. And real life calls on occasion!

Give my best to your brother and (I'm Sure!) your mum, and hope everything goes well for him.

xoxo call me if you need me.

Herrad said...

Take it easy hope you feel better soon.

Love,
Herrad

It's always good to just take a break sometimes. Take care, Sarah. We'll be waiting for you.

Oz Girl said...

Oh Sarah, you have my thoughts and prayers. I hope your brother is alright... and I understand your BP and thyroid issues. I take BP meds too, and last I heard, my thyroid was out of whack. (But I'm not taking anything for it at the time.)

You know that everyone in bloggyland will be thinking about you and hoping that everything is ok. And of course we will be here for you -- now, and when you return to your blog. :)

We all need a break from blogging from time to time ~

hugs,
Susan
