Today's post was supposed to be joining in with the lovely My Home Truths for the weekly confessional that Kirsty hosts. I was going to confess how for the next few weeks I would be neglecting my regular linky posts.
With the highly anticipated #DPCON13 literally just around the corner, there is much to be done around home to ease the burden of Mummy Guilt that I will inevitably hurl upon myself for leaving the children to the perils of their father for nearly one whole week.
As such my blogging time is going to be slightly impeded for pretty much the next month.
Which means that even if by some minor miracle I get posts out I seriously doubt my ability to go around commenting as much as I think is appropriate when joining linky parties.
In between all of that it is my birthday soon. Actually it is just under a month to go but I am super super excited about it this year. Well at least for the moment I am. No doubt there will be some point in the coming weeks that will see me crumble under the realisation that at thirty five I have very little to show for myself other than an awesome husband and three awesome offspring.
Which of course is awesome but not exactly the nobel prize for literature that I was expecting to have by now. Mind you I was also expecting to skip a few years of high school and university. Not to mention a call from the lovely folk at Mensa asking if I wanted join their special little club. Oh the delusional mind of a early teens.
Where was I? Oh that's right, confessing I am holding off on joining in on all my favourite linkies over the next few weeks.

Ok so maybe the delusional thing was slightly longer lasting than early teens, whatever
Mind you since I do kind of have a confessional post here I guess it wouldn't hurt to just link up...
We'll still be here when you get back and totally understand where you are coming from. I don't like linking up if I can't get around to comment and feel that it is unfair to do that.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful time at DPCON - I am sure you will !!!
Love, hugs and positive energy !
Yes I am sure I will have a lovely time as well, in some ways it can't come quick enough and in others it is still too soonDelete
Ha ha you just couldn't resist ... I'm sure we all go through times when real life gets in the way of our bloggy fun! I'm off to NZ this week for a few days and although I have posts scheduled, realistically I don't think I'll be doing much linking or commenting while I'm away ...ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful time away Janet, how exciting. And yes I just couldn't resist! This week I still have a little time left but next week will be a different story I thinkDelete
I understand too, I don't really participate in any other link ups as yet because I can't commit the time and I don't want to link and dash.ReplyDelete
Also understand about the ambition of being a writer, I always imagined I'd be the next Enid Blyton as a child and instead I'm a bogan in Boganville, so things could be worse lol
I love Enid Blyton, I too thought I might have been her second coming, but alas not yet! I am against the whole link and dash as wellDelete
Oh that's a bit sad. I can totally understand though. I'm feeling the guilt already as wellReplyDelete
yes it is going to be a busy month isn't it?Delete
I will miss you on the linkups Rhi but I will still try to keep an eye out for your posts. I know how you feel, my time is also being severely limited lately due to the pressures of work and after school activities and all the house building stuff. Sometimes we just have to take a step back to get our lives in order - good luck with the preparations for DPCON13 and thanks for linking up for one last time to I Must Confess!ReplyDelete
If all goes to plan Kirsty there should be plenty of posts to read, just going to take the ego a while to get used to not getting all the visits that come with the linking up :(Delete
Oh Rhi, I just turned 35 - a week ago, and am in the same boat, have a fab hubby and 3 gorgeous kids but no major claim to fame. I have paid writing (but I'm a journo by trade so if I wasn't paid to write then it wouReplyDelete
You need to cut yourself some slack girl - SHIT - 3 kids is a feat in itself. Don't put too much pressure on yourself, don't worry about things that might never happen, just be, just be your gorgeous, happy self. HUGS - I hope to make it to DEFCON 1 soon (hee hee).
I'll see you when I see you and adore it when I do. xx Em
I so wish you were making it to this DEFCON 1, can't wait to catch up in person, us old ducks could paint the town red I am sureDelete
It's actually really lovely of you to step back because you feel you can't share the love as much as you'd like! I'll still stop by, I promise!ReplyDelete
Awe thanks lovely EmilyDelete
Of course we understand. We will miss you though. Relax and enjoy the #DPCON13!ReplyDelete
