Why writing sometimes has to take a backseat

A short post I’m afraid. Today is Sunday of a holiday weekend and the Captain and I are in England to celebrate a major birthday of our dear friend Michael. We are staying with him and wife Trish at the new home they moved into a week ago.

 Downsized into from the family home where they raised three children, with acres (literally) of space and weren’t expecting to leave quite this soon.

But move they have as a buyer came along and within five minutes they’ve upped and moved. All great stuff, and a big birthday to celebrate too, surrounded by wonderful friends, increasing family and a positive attitude to be envied by people half their age.

I should be writing posts – I have my laptop with me – but there’s little time to write as there’s so much fun going on. Nor will there be internet connection at the Johnson household till next Wednesday at the earliest which is essential for posting wonderful, stimulating blogs. 

I’m grabbing this chance of 15 minutes of wi-fi during a visit to the parents to let you know that normal blogging service will be resumed as soon as we return to the Netherlands.

Assuming I’m not too exhausted from having a great time . . .

About wordgeyser

Our anglo/american family used to live in four countries (USA, Canada, UK and the Netherlands) on two continents, separated by distance, time zones, circumstance and cultures. It has been a scary, enriching, challenging place to be. The only things guaranteed to get us through were a sense of humour and the amazing people met along the way. . . This year everything changed with a move for us from the Netherlands, – and a move along with us for our son and his wife from the UK – to Houston, Texas, the same city as our daughter. With our youngest in Vancouver, Canada, we are now all living on the same continent. How this happened, and more importantly why, will be the subject of this ongoing blog...

  1. Good time-induced exhaustion is the only good kind. Enjoy! We’ll be waiting with bated breath.
