The Letter

Dear all

I have I have  had to come to make two very hard decisions !

As you may or may not of known I was away for ten days. I did try to read your posts and “Like” and comment  but this was not easy and as it caused trouble with my partner I had to let things slide.

I have taken the decision, though I am not happy to have, to delete the back log of emails I had accrued. I did this  so that I can give you all my best attention now. I have limited time right now to use  the computer  so I have decided to try and catch up with what posts I can from the WordPress Reader.

My second decision is also very harsh and hard for me to do  but I am going to have to say I cannot accept anymore awards from you my fellow bloggers. The thing is my writing causes friction, so it it easier ( and I know most cowardly ) for me to write as when my partner is not here or at least  not to be writing for too long in the evenings or when he is around. I have loved receiving all the awards and have been very grateful and honoured with each one that has arrived in my mail  but they take up so much time and I really want to devote what time I have to my my poetry and prose.

I hope that you will all forgive me for taking these measures  but it is the only way I see to move forward , as my dear friend Wendell  has advised me to do.

Please remember I am so grateful to be part of this WordPress press family and that I love and value you all very much!

With love and hugs to you all

    There’s an incredible amount of work that goes into accepting the awards – I understand completely. My last one took two days to complete.
    So with this post, enjoy your freedom! You’ve made the right decision for you, and that’s what’s important. 🙂

      Thanks, Linda your understanding is great. I feel my blog is my life line my one way to stop my head exploding . That sounds a tad over the top but I love to write and I end up being told I am obsessed or addicted to my laptop!!

        That’s exactly how I feel too, and I’m told the same thing. I don’t know what I’d do without writing – it is addictive I think. When I can’t write it stresses me to no end.
        Nice to know you’re not alone, isn’t it? 🙂

    I understand. Especially since I’ve been fighting my wife throughout our entire marriage to be able to read,write and watch what I please in my own home. My wife cannot live the lifestyle she likes to live without my income since she has never been able to make as much or more than I make. So it finely took a credible threat to put her back in her mothers home where I found her stripped of her home, car and my income to get her under control and from which I have never backed down.

    I understand that at the end of the day this is just a blog, and that other priorities must come first, but, and yes there is always a but, don’t let your creative spirit die. I hope you won’t leave WP because I adore you to pieces, but if you do, please continue expressing yourself 🙂
