Everybody needs a vacation every now and then.
It is good for the body and better for the mind.
I have decided that it is time to give the blog a wee vacation too.
This week has been a roller coaster week. The highs were super highs, winning a pub quiz with Claire, Craig and Claire's parents, visiting the Brewdog Brewery in Ellon and getting a tour (which I highly recommend!), and I had some visiting pals which is always fun!
On the flip side, I had some particularly harsh and cruel comments made about my character during last week, which despite the fact they were said in the heat of the moment made quite an impact on me. Later in the week I had a friend to dinner and ended up having quite an emotional conversation about things I had thought I had laid to rest a few years ago. If I am honest I am a little embarrassed about how much of my feelings I revealed to my dinner guest. I like to be prepared for these things but this one caught me off guard! I'll just keep a low profile until I am no longer embarrassed!
Anyway, that is not important.
I use this blog as a diary a lot of the time, which means I reveal a lot of my feelings for everyone to see and read. I don't mind that at all. What I don't like is the feeling that my honesty gets used to hurt me or manipulate me which unfortunately does happen from time to time.
I don't know how long I will be offline for, maybe a month. Maybe longer. I have a few things to deal with (as I discovered at dinner... my poor, poor, visitor really got an earful....) but when I come back I will be back bouncing and probably stressing about Christmas at work!!
Thank you all for following and reading my ramblings,

Until the next time....
