What to do, what to do.....

I have been away from this blog for what seems like an eternity, certainly this is the longest since I started it. I have been feeling somewhat ambivalent to be honest, not really sure how much of a priority I want it to be- clearly it is not a priority at the moment. But I have so many lovely photos and recipes that I want to share and that is the catch 22 part of it all. For some reason the motivation doesn't seem to be there. I actually think it probably is down to the time of year and change of seasons. Suddenly the days are long, fine and warm and cooking or baking, then sitting in front of a computer has lost its appeal. So I think I am going to try and clear the backlog of posts and take a wee break over summer. I really don't like to cook over summer, it is something I do reluctantly actually! Too much going on, lots of lovely fresh food that gets assembled rather than properly cooked if you know what I mean. It seems a shame, given how gorgeous the light is for taking photos at the moment!!!!!!
I have also made a pact to stop baking for a wee while, and since doing so have noticed a significant improvement in how my clothes fit!!! I am wanting to cut down on all the excess so chances are my food will be somewhat basic and uninspiring! I will of course feel compelled to cook from time to time I know, and those instances will undoubtedly be honoured with a post!:)

I completely understand your lack of enthusiasm for blogging when the weather is fine, but I think if you feel the urge to blog, even 'simple' food can be interesting and can inspire fellow bloggers in the same 'predicament';) Besides, maybe some people are new to cooking and looking for easy things to start with:) In any case, I Do hope we see you now and again over summer Linda....there's always the 'dreaded' festive season and all the food that comes with it;)

Don't worry Linda, I'm sure after a little break, you'll come back to blogdom inspired and raring to go.
I've been through the same thing myself a few times, and I find the best thing to do is just to have a little break.
Good luck whatever you decide to do.
