April is about....

For me, April is about the school holidays. I am shutting the blog a week early so will be gone from the 7th until the 25th.

These holidays will be filled with music as I've managed to book a number of concerts.

I hope to write two short stories over the break, though we shall see. I seem to have lost that creative mojo completely. I want to read at least 2 books. I'm ploughing through the audio books but the actual reading paper books seems to have stalled.

Basically, I'm taking a break from online. I will still be on Insta but I need to unplug and recharge, I think.

What is April about for you?

Linking with #Lifethisweek, TheRandom and #WordlessWednesday


  1. Happy school holidays the first term has flown. My grandson started school this year and it is certainly a huge adjustment and most of the little ones are exhausted. Enjoy your time away from the blog. We all need this. April is very hectic for me. We have sold our MIL's home (where we live) and move in two weeks. We celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary plus my daughter's and grandson's birthdays. He is having a Jurassic Park birthday cake so I'll have my baking hat on to produce a Dinosaur! Enjoy your holiday. #lifethisweek

    1. oooh, that sounds an elaborate cake! And happy anniversary.

  2. Enjoy your digital detox and have an egg-cellent time at all the gigs! (Sorry couldn't help myself!) See you on the other side!

  3. The blues festival sounds great fun Lydia. Hope you enjoy your digital detox and get to write and read to your hearts content. #lifethisweek

  4. Happy holiday break, Lydia! I'm looking forward to the break from term time routine. We will be exploring our lovely city before I head to Boston for work stuff.

  5. Enjoy Bluesfest and your break. Catch you on the other side.

  6. You are a dedicated blogger to join in next week for Share Your Snaps. Have a great break with the fam. Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek. Next week's optional prompt is Share Your Snaps. 15/51. Hope to see you there! Denyse.

  7. I think if you're doing Instagram you're not really on a break but if you want to keep a toe in it's the perfect thing to do. You are crazy ambitious, I haven't even thought about writing a short story in months and that was one of those ideas that came to me in a dream and seemed great at the time but in reality...

  8. no school holidays here for me these days, but April is the last month I can enjoy being out and about before summer hits here in Dubai and drives me indoors until the end of October
