Absent without leave ...

Hello my lovelies!

I've recently had several messages, comments and emails from you, my faithful followers saying that you miss me, and I'm really touched by this, and the truth is, I really miss you all too!

Everything is fine, there is no underlying bad reason why I haven't been blogging, in fact a very good one ... I've just been so busy with my work there hasn't been time to pause for breath ...

Hopefully, once I've wound down for Christmas I will get back on here and catch up with you all (that's if you want me to after such a long absence), but I felt some kind of explanation was necessary. I am in touch with lots of you on Instagram, a lazy substitute for writing a post, but one that I love nonetheless! Join me there if you would like to ... I'm Thriftwood114, and you'll find lots of other bloggy friends there too.

Will be in touch soon, and hope you're all enjoying your Christmas preparations.

With love, Claire


  1. glad to know you're ok - same here - so much rushing around and work not much time for anything else!

  2. Hello! I should have guessed you were another lost to Instagram. I don't really use it so forget that to others it's the bees knees.

    Hope you have a lovely Christmas Claire.

  3. Glad to see you back in blog land. Everyone seems to using Instagram these days, except me. Merry Christmas, Jacqui

  4. I hope that you can now find some time to relax and enjoy Christmas! xx

  5. Enjoy your Christmas preparations Claire! See you on Instagram :-)

  6. I'm so glad that all is well and that you are just busy and getting your prioritys right I haven't a clue whether or not I can get access to Instagram but I will have a go - hope you have a flabby Christmas surrounded by friends and family xx

  7. Thank you Lynne!If you have an Ipad or Iphone you can get Instagram, probably othger ways too, but as a complete technophobe amd not sure. I had to laugh at your comment ... think you might have meant fabby Christmas, but it probably will be a flabby one, knowing me ... hope you have a great time too xxx

  8. oh my goodness - i am so sorry for saying flabby when i meant FABBY definitely - i think i might have to retire gracefully now and put a flannel on my head - in my defence i haven't been so well this week so have been using the silly ipad and that has a kind of correcting thing that isn't always right!!!! so sorry xxxx

    1. Haha, don't worry Lynne! It made me laugh ... xx
