Renewed vigor

So another week has passed without me coming over. My blog is perhaps starting to feel the same way that my mother does.
Anyway - done now - got to make the best of it.
As I have mentioned ad infinitum I started a new job in March which took/takes up a lot of my energy and time. But it is essentially the same job that took/takes up so much time as I did before but in a different and (has to be said) better environment so I should be used to it. However I did go from one to the other without a break - not even a day - and I think that took its toll because I was kn... very tired. But I had last week off work and I feel a zillion times better.
I had a lovely week of finally doing some chores that I've been putting off for ages (a fact that gets me down by itself) baking, cooking, taking the dog to the beach and visiting sleepy market towns for shopping and pub lunches. And, while that was all good, the best bit was that there was no alarm and I slept until I woke up which was such a treat and absolutley fantastic.
Back to reality tomorrow though but at least I can face it with renewed vigor which is something that I hope to apply to me writing too. It has sufferred, I have put it off but the fact fact that I haven't even looked at a piece of writing for a week means that I want to now. Having just said that though, does that mean that I'm not really writer material because I have often read that writers "have" to write and frankly I didn't last week.
Here we go.

I wouldn't worry too much about the saying 'Writer's have to write, Colette. I bet many have days when they don't and just call it 'writer's block'.
I only write when I feel happy writing which is most days at the moment. Some days I write more than others.
Just enjoy your life and if the words flow then all well and good.

Sometimes you just need a complete rest. I'm sure you'll get back to the writing with renewed enthusiasm now.

Jarmara - I don't worry because no-one "has" to write. They have to breathe and eat etc but not write. Hint of the melodramatic I think.
Helen - hopefully.

We all need breathers Colette - am sure you will write a lot better as a result!

Refreshed! Whats all that about? No seriously I did enjoy the break thanks - sadly no just a distant memory.
