Sun, sea, sand n' stress......

Hello my dears, hope this post finds you all fine and dandy this March morning.

I'm just popping in to let you know that I won't be about for a while.
I'm having a wee break.

Not gallivanting about or anything, it's just things have been getting on top of me for a bit now and I feel I just need to have some time to take a few deep breaths or so....

Hopefully I'll still be able to get round and visit you every now and then. But i just wanted to ask you not to be offended if I don't, as I just need a bit of time :o)

Thankyou all so much for being such lovely bloggers, leading such lovely, inspirational lives that I can nose into, and for leaving me such supportive lovely comments.

Honestly, I do appreciate you all so much!

Well, Goodbye for a little while, and take care now won't you?

Love Donna xx


  1. Have a restful break Donna, and take care of yourself. Sometimes when life gets too much just take a step back (that's what my wise hubby always tells me). Look forward to seeing you back soon.
    Sending you a hug.

  2. Hi Donna, sorry you won't be blogging for a bit but you take all the time you need. xx

  3. I just KNEW you weren't yourself the last couple of days! I hope that taking a break will help you get out from under the pile of stress that you're under. I am always here if you need to talk about anything. I'll be thinking about you, and I'm sending you lots of feel better hugs and love~ xoxo YBB

  4. Hi Donna
    Do hope you are okay....was only thinking that I had not emailed lately.
    I know how you feel, blogging does take time and thought and when other things are going on in life it's one thing you don't have to do.
    Maybe you've been trying to do tooooooooo much.
    I'm always on the end of the email if you want to get in touch.
    Lots and lots of hugs

  5. I'm sorry to hear that you wont be blogging for a while, but I hope you have a good rest, sending hugs and have a peaceful and less stressful break x

  6. Hi Donna-
    I do hope that this respite does wonders for you. Sending big big hugs. We're all thinking of you and wishing you the best from "the hug" thread. Loves and squeezes, Jessi (and elliebean too)

  7. Aww, I shall miss your sweet comments, you are always so kind and thoughtful. I hope you feel yourself again soon, and we can catch up again then, take care of yourself, Liz xxx

  8. Hi Donna, we will miss your encouragement but I know how important it is to recharge the batteries..take care of yourself and take a deep bretah and then jump back in the pool..we'll all be waiting to catch you..♥ leslie

  9. I hope the rest will do you good, but I shall miss your posts!

  10. Take care of yourself! It's good to have a break from time to time. Look forward to reading your blog posts again in the near future when you have recharged your batteries. Don't forget to let us all know when you return. x

  11. Hi Donna

    Hope you are having a lovely break from blogging - I think we all need one every now and then, it is so time consuming posting and visiting so its good to step back and ignore it all for a while!

    Hope you and your family are well, and look forward to your return when you are ready to enter the foray again!

  12. Hi Donna, Hope your break is treating you well. I think it does us all good to focus on living rather than staring at a screen, esp when we have such lovely weather. Big Love Scarlett x

  13. Oh I understand, Donna. I take breaks here and there too. Much needed. Sometimes I get caught up in the little things in life--like housework and errands. Sometimes there are big things too--just recently I had a scare after some bloodwork. All turned out well (phew), but I was overwhelmed and completely occupied.

    I hope you and your family are well and enjoying the renewal of spring. Happy Easter! Talk soon, Victoria

  14. Stopping by to wish you a very happy easter, i hope your break is being as fabulous as you :o) Scarlett x

  15. hi again donna. i had to come back again as i have a heart for you. i too have been a carer and know how important breaks are. i have been taking mine at a friary for over 10years now and have just had a few days there and am mightily refreshed. hope you gain the refreshment you need. i love the quilting you do. i am enthused. i also love op shops and am a regular fossicker love, trillian,:-)
