Goodbye until September

Dear friends, I need to spend time with family, friends… and possibly my writing.

So this is goodbye for the time being. I will still be keeping an eye on my blog, so if anyone happens to want to contact me, just comment and I will pick it up, but I will be neither posting, nor reading your amazing posts.

At the end of the summer I will have had visits from friends (too long neglected), attended conferences on European Banking and Far East Prisoners of War, I will have grown some tomatoes and beans and just possibly I will have made some progress on my next novel. 

We are starting here:

If I end up with nothing more than this, so be it. I will see you all again in the autumn.

  1. Good for you. Enjoy your summer and grow lots of lovely things and write lots of lovely words – and please don’t let it rain until September!
    Thanks for commenting on my Goldfish blog before you disappear.

    • I’ll do my best. We’ve had very little rain for two months, so some would be good, – but no, I won’t let it rain until September! I shall not to read some posts, such as the Goldfish. I may leave a small read-only window a week.

      • Would you mind a little more rain NOW? 😉 … because I’m coming to England in September. (My first trip except for London. Plan to start in the Lake District {Edinburgh actually} and make my way south.)

  2. I’ll miss you but I don’t blame you. I am thinking about stepping back myself. Sitting in front of the computer when there is so much that needs to be done feels wrong at times -and lately more often.

    I wish you a wonderful summer. I wish you happy writing and most of all I wish to see you again in September.

  3. Just when I managed to get your posts coming through automatically on email too! Good on you for taking a hiatus and best of luck with all the endeavours, and most of all, the next novel. Smart move to disconnect for a while. enjoy!

  4. You have a great summer, Hilary. You know we’ll be here when you get back!! [of course I will be especially interested in the Far East Prisoners of War info.]

  5. Lovely photographs, Hilary! Fare thee well with your many pursuits and enjoy life to the full! Always good to see your posts when and if they happen. ❤

  6. Have a good break, and I hope it inspires your writing. My dad’s started reading ‘Unseen unsung’ and his first comment was ‘it’s extremely well-written’. I think he’s enjoying it.

  7. Good luck, Hilary. Well done on your tomatoes are your beans. My beans (in cold, dry but sunny Essex) are doing fine, but I have no tomatoes yet, just a few little green beads on one of my plants.
