Neglected but not forgotten.

As you may have noticed things have been a tad quite here on Where Roots and Wings Entwine.  Unfortunately a few things have kept me distracted and busy so that my little blog has been neglected but it has not been forgotten.  In spite of all of that’s been on my mind and been keeping me away from here, my blog has always been on the back of my mind and I have felt bad for abandoning it for so long.

Luckily before my life got more hectic and complicated than normal and the blog was put on the back burner I had written a few things and scheduled them to post (unfortunately not everything posted for me and will be popping on here in due course). 

A few things combined causing me to neglect my blog for so long.  Firstly I was plagued with technical problems that stopped me being able to access my blog to post those naughty posts that just did not want to do as they were told and post when scheduled.  Also due to technical niggles I couldn’t use my laptop to write new posts (but I was a good girl and when my forgotten blog played on my mind too much I did resort to good old fashioned pen and paper and write a few things ready for when I had my laptop working again).  Thankfully I could use my phone to stay connected online to some degree and I could use it to reply to important emails but unfortunately I don’t have a high-tech phone that would enable me to do much more let alone allow me to keep on top of my blog.

Then our planned little trip away to visit Lee’s family kept my attention away from my blog.  Thankfully my little technical issues had been fixed enough so that I could once again do most things and I had planned on using the nights away when little man was sleeping and Lee was with his brother playing computer games and catching up to get caught up with my writing.  Unfortunately as the saying goes “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry” things did not go as I had planned and I did not get my planned blog time.  Little man was a little unsettled with the long trip, the strange surroundings and did not sleep as settle and sleep as good as normal.  Also to be honest I was quite tired myself; with the long trip and busy days out and about and visiting family all I wanted to do was snuggle in bed and be lazy.

As well as our trip away and technical problems hindering me on keeping up with my blog I’ve also had a few personal problems over the last month or so which hasn’t helped at all.  To be honest the personal issues I’ve been facing have been my priority, keeping me busy with lots on my mind and have taken all my energy and mental brain power; with them being at the forefront of my mind and unfortunately my blog being put to the back of my mind and list of priorities.

Even though we are now back home and my technical issues have been resolved (hopefully for good this time) the personal problems I’ve been facing are not resolved yet and as such they are still my priority but hopefully I will now be able to pay a little more attention to my blog than I have done so in the last month.  I plan on slowly getting back on track and working on the posts that I had left undone and giving my blog a lot more love and attention.


  1. I think you do a great job on your blog; I know i could never commit myself to something like this.

  2. nice to have you back. I have tried and failed at maintaining my blog and always feel the guilt!

  3. I don't think you should feel bad, family needs to come first, especially the little people. Your loyal followers will be here when you can get back.

  4. hope things get better for you soon :)
