Since I last wrote a post here, I thought my absence would be a temporary thing. Now, I realise it might take a while before I can resume my usual internet persona of the light-hearted and breezy (some might even say shallow) public persona. That's not to say it isn't part of me - it is. But...
Like most people on the net, real life for me has a few more dimensions. Others I know have no hesitation about discussing things of a personal nature on their blogs and other social media. That's never been the case with me. I've always kept the other sides of my world private. However, in the past months things have not been good there, and I haven't been able to produce my usual internet face - hence no blog.
I'm now sorry to say things in my real world are even less than good, and so I'm not sure if I'll be back here in the foreseeable future. In truth, the internet itself has been at the root of my current real life situation, so for that reason, I'm shutting down and opting out. Maybe when things have found a balance again, I'll start a new blog - a new page, a new chapter in my life.
I'll still be flitting around on Twitter and on Facebook - it's easy to 'like' and add 'smileys' to things, and I still have books to promote and support, but just not here.
Wishing you all a wonderful spring xxx
