I’ve been battling writer’s block recently.
DD was startled to wake on Sunday morning and discover I hadn’t blogged yet – he’s become accustomed to there being a new HouseGoesHome post by 7am, regular as clockwork, 365 days a year.
But inspiration just wouldn’t come.
He’d suggested the night before that I write about my garlic breath.
He was VERY unhappy about me eating garlic dip twice last week without him. He’s a stickler for the rule that you only eat garlic if your partner is partaking too.
I reeked when I saw him on Friday after having a Lebanese feast with my friend Suze on Thursday. But he didn’t tell me until Saturday, after I backed up from another Lebanese feast with my sister and her bloke. He said the fresh garlic breath on Saturday night wasn’t as bad as the stale garlic breath on Friday.
I’m paranoid about being smelly, so I was a bit traumatised to receive the belated news.
At 9am on Sunday he sent a text saying: “Garlic theme didn’t work for you?”
I replied: “Was having trouble spinning out ‘boyfriend says I stink’ into a whole blog.”
Although ironically I seem to be having no trouble doing it now …
But that’s not what this blog post was supposed to be about.
It was about how I’m suffering from a spot of writer’s block.
So I’m having mini break.
This is my last blog post until next Monday. I’m going to spend the last week of the school holidays having some quality time with my divine daughters. It was sooooooo lovely to give them goodnight cuddles last night!
I’ll still be Instagramming, so you can follow my adventures there, if you fancy.
Otherwise, have a lovely week and I’ll see you soon!
