I have been bloging at Bag End since March 2008 and a lot has happened in that time.
We've had the worst of sadness:
Despite saying I would never risk opening my heart to another dog, clearly I did:
and much in between:
But the constant has been charting our ups and downs as we rennovate the house and create a garden and for the most part maintaining the blog has been a positive addition to the mix. But right now I have had enough; writing blog posts, processing photographs, considering what to share and what to keep private, and all the other maintenance which goes on is no longer an enjoyable activity but a chore. Management is very fond of saying "if something's stopped being fun, stop doing it" so that is what I have decided to do.
I am bored with what I am writing, I have begun to resent the time it takes, and I need a break.
There is no way of telling when/if I will be back, but The View From will remain online for the time being. Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed, commented, and been in some way part of our Cumbrian journey. Having you all along for the ride has enriched the experience and to those of you who've become "real" friends along the way, you know how much you mean to me 😊
huggles for now, Jayne, xx
