From out of the blue…

I received some unexpected, and unwelcome, news yesterday which means that for a while I’ll be spending less time blogging and the like.

Sadly it also means that the book writing has come to an abrupt halt and, like Sofa flying, will have to be left on the shelf to gather dust.

Let me emphasise that I’m okay and this news concerns a close friend. I have to say that she was remarkably stoic when I saw her yesterday, and she was consoling me rather than the other way round.

Although she’s agreeable to me saying more I’m not going to as I feel that some things, such as this, are simply not meant to be blogged about.

I shall be continuing to post here, but possibly not regularly for a while, and I will still read, and comment on, friend’s blogs.

Have a good weekend!

    Stay strong, Flighty. Don’t worry about not blogging. I haven’t blogged for over a year until the last couple of weeks. Blogging can fit around your life, not the other way round. Take care and best wishes. Crazykites.

    All the best Mike 😀 ….and for your brave friend.
    Was going to wish you luck with the November novel and found this, so another year, another book 🙂 Take care, Anne

    • Flighty says:

      Anne thanks that’s much appreciated. Sadly there’s no way that I can continue writing the book as it not only needs several hours a day but but a clear mind so to speak. xx
