According To Matt Archives - Almost A Month

How have you all been?
Without meaning to, it turned out that I took a little break from my blog.
Early last month my head was swimming with blog and project ideas, but for some reason nothing took form. I stopped working on projects, I stopped taking photographs and therefore I stopped writing on my blog.
Honestly I've enjoyed having the break. Constantly making things, taking pictures and documenting have become routine for me. Waiting for photos to upload onto my laptop, updating Facebook, Instagram and twitter, answering emails and working towards deadlines are things I enjoy doing, but they sometimes make my days feel a little hectic.
This month I've done non of that and I do hope you will forgive me if I haven't answered your questions or replied to your Facebook comments. I don't even have photographs to share, just my words. Instead I've just been doing my own thing: going to work, going to the gym (if I feel like it), going to bed early (but waking up late) and pottering around on my balcony. I've been enjoying the development of my flowers and plants as they wake up and say hello to the glorious Spring weather that we've been having. Sounds silly but that's been a real highlight to my month.
I've had my Mum and Grandma come and visit me, they watched the show and then we spent the rest of the weekend eating good food and strolling around the city.
I've been counting down the days until Dennis comes home from the ship. 6 days left!!!! I can not wait to have him home. He's going to take a little break from the ships, at least until after Christmas. That means I'll be the working "man of the house" and he'll be focusing on a little something that we are both insanely excited about. I can't say what it is yet, but I promise to reveal all once it's a little more concrete.
That's been my month. A month of slow paced, easy breezy days. It's been leisurely and on reflection, rather calm. That being said, I'm ready to pic up my camera, my crochet hook and get back on the blogging band wagon. Thanks for letting me take a breather. I'll be back next week and hopefully get some routine back to my blogging.
