I'll call you...
Well its true. I've been very reclusive throughout this pregnancy. I'm reclusive at the best of times, but like with most things, pregnancy seems to amplify it. I started off not wanting to share the news of our precious little owlet to be for a looong time. Then when the cat was out of the bag, I started to draw within... Staying in the moment. Its been necessary this time.
But as my own mother said to me the other day "You never call... ever." Well I do sometimes, but its largely true. I'm so busy living in this particular moment that when I get to the end of the day and I have some moments to myself, I remember the outside world and its too late to call... I'm also one of those people who finds it hard to say much unless I have something to say. Not easy when your days involve waddling around the backyard. This little blog has been a saviour of sorts, communicating that there is something going on. Both for me and for friends and family... But therein lies another problem. Lately I suck at replying to comments. So many of you have said such lovely things and I haven't responded much. Sometimes its because an email address isn't linked and late night laziness gets the better of me. But I do read them all, love to receive them and reply when I can... I also suck at returning text messages and emails too. Its not always this way... Please don't be offended if I'm a little on the quiet side. Its nothing personal. I'm so looking forward to emerging from this little time of self-imposed exile, my little holiday, introducing our third owlet to the world slowly. But for now, this is where I need to be. xxxx
