I am currently drowning in notes and revision for my exam in June. At the same time as theories and research methods are swirling around in my head, so are blog ideas and mini-reviews of the books I've read recently. And as much as I love this little blog, I really need that space for the revising, because I am absolutely terrified of not doing well. (I can do it, I can do it, I can do it!) I've even put on hold the book I'm reading (Monster of Men by Patrick Ness! A book I'm absolutely DYING to finish!) in order to concentrate fully. Sigh.

I can't seem to find that right balance between reading, blogging, revising and looking after my children (what was I thinking going back to university with two small children?). So you'll notice a slow-down of blogging in the next month or so (a slow-down, not a complete absence!) . But don't despair, I am still here and I have something very exciting coming up this week... Look out for it. And when I DO start blogging regularly again, things will be new and fresh and fun!

Until then, if you have any spare positive thoughts, you can send them my way! I need 'em.


  1. Good thoughts! I have no idea what you were thinking. I think about starting a new career with THREE young kids and my brain explodes.

  2. I am sure you will do brilliantly in your exams :) Eagerly awaiting the exciting blog thing *tell me now*

  3. Good luck with your exams. Don't worry about us, we will still be here when you get back.

  4. Rose City Reader - thank you. I'm feeling better about it already :)

  5. You can do it!

    My experience is that there is no short-term balance (something always gets more than its share in the short term). The best thing to aim for is long-term balance, where things even out eventually. So study now, blog later!

    You can do it!


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
