One of our good bloggy friends, Desiree, over at Driftwood Ramblings, has decided to take a well earned break from blogging at the moment, and I know that we all miss her. She provided wonderful photos of her own garden, stunning gardens that she had visited, not to mention all her wonderful doggies! I certainly miss seeing her comments around in blogland, but I know that she will return when she's ready.
Meanwhile, I just wanted to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY today! Desiree, I hope that you will manage to have a lovely, relaxing day and that you will be spoilt rotten on your special day.
I tried to give this particular birthday cake a garden theme, as I thought it was appropriate for someone who loves her garden so much. I'm sure Desiree won't mind if we all have a slice as well, because I know what a generous hearted lady she is.
Another good bloggy friend, Jenny, over at Knees and Paws, has also announced that she will be giving up blogging for a while, to concentrate home-schooling her son, Elliot. I'm sure we all wish her luck and send our love to her whilst she concentrates on this very important task.
All of us who blog know just how much of our time that it takes up. Sometimes I feel things slipping away from me a little bit, as I am so anxious to keep up with everyone and always try to leave comments. I am retired, but I don't know how others manage to keep up with it all when they go out to work, lots of them full time. Certainly, there is no way that I could have spent so much time on my blog when the children were growing up.
Blogging is enjoyable, and we have all met so many truly lovely people from all parts of the world, but it shouldn't make us feel stressed out or worried about keeping up with everything. Perhaps having a little break from time to time is something that we could all think about. I think we know each other well enough by now to know that we will all still be around when we return.
I don't know if any of you have any thoughts on this. Meanwhile, I will go and search out some more photos for Sunday's post! Hugs to you all.
