When you don't know what to say

Get yourself & brew and settle down in a chair because I have eventually managed to write a blog post (shock horror!))!

It is no secret than when a space (lets say this blog) is left abandoned, unloved, lets be honest, totally neglected, that no one visits any more assuming (usually correctly) that no one resides there any more.

The longer it is left the harder it is to return, not knowing what to say any more.  The period in which you are absent gives you time to reflect and wonder why you wrote in the first place, do people really care what you write about?

So little house on the corner has been left for some time now, why? Well we could say work commitments, family life and many other excuses but the reality is that a sample lack of enthusiasm and anything to say. 

So rather than concerning myself with what has been I thought it best to start a fresh and dive straight in, joining in with A Yarn Along.

I love to read and find little time for reading an actual book, I do listen to audio books more and more these days. That said I am reading A proper physical book by Gretchen Rubin called 'Better Than Before'. The book tackles the issue of how habits are formed and broken. Appealing to two elements of my personality it is an addictive read. The marketer in me loves to understand why people behave the way that they do and then the control freak that I can sometimes be loves to understand why I do what I do. The book is informative and enjoyable, the only negative I have on it is that I find sometimes there is what I would call Filler content to pad the book out but ultimately I find it an intriguing read. 

One side is complete!

In terms of projects, I have not been that productive this year, I am currently on a WIP down, I have dragged out all my WIPS from my basket. I have decided that before I cast on anything new I need to finish a few things. Next in the firing line is my Peachy crochet top. I have been working on this since the 28th December 2015, then other things come along so it got pushed to one side. This week I have finished my Wispy cardi (Posted about it here) and my Eugene socks. I hope to show you these in the coming days as I get back into this blogging business!


  1. Welcome back! Gretchen Rubin is the Happiness Project lady isn't she ? I've not heard of this other book, will look out for it! Good luck with the WIPs , I have a load, er I mean a few, myself!

    1. Hi Jill thanks for stopping by. Yes Gretchen does the happiness project which I've not read but heard off. Hope you are well.

  2. What a lovely top! That blue is just so pretty. I know that feeling of neglecting a space all too well. It is good to clean out the cobwebs and just start a little space at a time!

  3. I'm interested in this book. I'll have to add it to my ever-growing queue!

    Your yarn is so pretty. It looks like it drapes well, too.

  4. I am guilty of not posting for ages too, I have been so busy this month. Hoping to get time to blog this weekend. X
