Sorry – Out of Order for a While

I’m very sorry to all of my friends and readers here on WP if I worried you with this morning’s post and poem I published earlier today. I just wanted to reassure you that, after a very tough day, I’m okay. Well, not okay, but having to be, really. The last couple of days have been incredibly stressful, with various people (friends and family) needing a lot of support from me. On top of all my own issues currently, it all felt like far too much to be able to cope with.

I’ve been fortunate to have my best friend with me for most of today, and I have spoken to my doctor who said she will call me again on Monday to see how I’m doing.

I wanted to let you know that I’m going to be taking a few days out from my blog. I want to concentrate on my writing when I can, but probably won’t be reading or commenting on as many blogs as I usually do. I love reading other bloggers’ work, but at the moment, it’s all too much and I’ve got to focus on doing the things that will give me some respite.

Thank you for my friends who have left me kind comments and advice today and for emails from a couple of you, which I will reply to when I have time. I appreciate your care more than you can know.

My son, Tom, and the two little ones are coming to stay from tomorrow afternoon to Sunday lunchtime. Although it’s the last thing I feel I can cope with right now, I’m sure it will do me good, especially being with the children. Perhaps, it was meant to be that they’re coming to stay again, as it means I’ll have to take time out to be with them rather than putting myself under pressure to keep up with my blog and social media in general.

I wish you all a peaceful and enjoyable weekend and once again, thank you so much for being here for me as always. It’s very much appreciated.

With much love, always,
Ellie Xxxx πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’œ

Writing my memoirs, musings, a little fiction and a lot of poetry as a way of exploring and making the most of my life ... ... Having had a break from writing my blog for more than three years, I decided to return to write my memoirs, some day-to-day observations, views and feelings. My passion is non-fiction poetry. I have a disability and use an electric powerchair called Alfie and let nothing get in the way of living life to the full. I believe that you can never do a kindness too soon and should give credit where credit is due. A smile or a kind word could make the difference between a good or bad day for a person - we never know what's going on for another soul. Those little things, perhaps, practised daily like a mantra, could mean so much to someone else. Thank you for visiting my blog and reading a little more about me. Please, make yourself at home here. You are very welcome. Ellie x 😊

  1. Bravo to you for recognizing that your bandwidth has been exceeded and you need to place some boundaries in place to maintain your mental health! This is a good thing! Take the time you need to regroup and to get your balance back! There really are no rules when it comes to blogging! You set the pace and control the throttle of how many or how few posts you are comfortable with. Get some rest, maybe go to sleep earlier tonight to help the reset happen!

  2. Thanks for keeping us posted. Take as much time as you need. I’ve been going through some rough days too, and I’m not sure if I’ll get this week’s episode done by Sunday morning. Hang in there.

  3. You are brave and strong πŸ’ͺ🏾 you are so special to so many!! Thank you for sharing and for being a voice of strength!! Do take the time you need and know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers each day!!
    Much love and blessings my dear friend! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’

  4. Glad that you’re taking a break. Your health comes first. A good thing to remember is that blogging is not a competition. Some bloggers write a lot, some write a little, the best thing is for you to find a rhythm that makes sense for you. I’ll be praying for your health. Thinking of you.

  5. Darling Ellie, take as much time as you need to rest, reset and recover. I’m in your corner cheering you on. You have so much to give the world and I’m already so excited for when you feel better and start blogging again. Until then, I’ll be thinking of you, praying for you (hope that’s cool?) and sending you big warm hugs xx

  6. I’m sorry it took me so long to respond to this post, Ellie! We had out of town company for the past couple of days, and I wasn’t able to keep up with blogging. I’m glad you’re feeling a bit better now, and believe me, we understand you needing to take a break and take care of yourself. Sending healing thoughts your way!!!

  7. Adding my voice to the others and saying we all love you. I hope the grandkids brought you joy and distraction. Take all the time you need. We aren’t going anywhere.

    1. Thank you very much, Bridgette. I’m trying to keep writing, but haven’t been able to keep up much for reading others’ blogs yet. The notifications are stacking up and I would like to read them all, but just need some more time. I will get back to that as soon as I feel as I can. Xx πŸ’

  8. Hello Ellie, no reply needed. Please do what needs to be done to care for yourself. In the meantime warrior you got this and I am praying for you.
