Where do you go?
When I can’t find you and can’t reach you –
Where do you go?
Why shouldn’t I be worried about you?

Thank you to The Haunted Wordsmith for another picture prompt. When I first saw it, I thought of the late nights I have had recently, walking back home through London streets after finishing at 1am in the morning. Then I thought about the anxiety someone might feel for a loved one who is out in the wee hours of the morning and does not account for their movements. But I have to start work soon, and it is going to be another marathon day.
For the past two weeks, I have felt as if I was constantly chasing my tail and due to my spare time being so limited, my blog posts became shorter and had less “interesting” content. In addition, I missed out on several word and picture prompts. Nevermind hey! Not many of us can afford the time to produce something worth readiing for every single writing prompt that appears.
This week, I have tried to be clever by preparing a few posts well in advance and scheduling them to be published during the week to come. I felt it was my only option because I was doing extra shifts to cover the holidays of colleagues at work. Being able to schedule the publishing of posts is great, but it does mean missing out on a lot of the fantastic prompts out there. Shame hey!
Some of the other branches I’m working at to cover holidays are eerily quiet at times. I have realized it is quite acceptable to spend the quiet times reading a book or writing in a notepad. So, it turns out I have been able to be fairly productive this week. I’ll just have to type up my scrawlings at some point.
What I am really struggling with though is keeping up with other bloggers’ posts. I am sorry. If you think I am being rude and not checking out your posts despite the fact you continually support me, please please do send me a comment along the lines of:
“Oy! Caramel – you have not stopped by for a while!”
I promise you I will make your site my priority in my long catch-up list. I am sorry if I have neglected supporting other bloggers. My time has been evaporating at an alarming rate these past two weeks! So please do shout out if I have been overlooking your posts.
Well we all have lives to lead…so I am sure you will understand this predicament only too well, and relate to how it feels to know you are not keeping up with other bloggers as much as you would like to. I look forward to my schedule settling down a bit, so I get back into a routine that allows me to be a better blogger and support other bloggers more.
