So, the last two weeks I was on holiday. I spent a fortnight in France mostly drinking cider. The blog posts that popped up then were pre-written before I left.
Now I’ve been back for a couple of days and have not written anything yet (yesterday’s post was also pre-written, but just scheduled wrong) and I have not been back at blogging yet, except this wee post.
The way things look at the moment, it might be a little while. I’ve not been in the mood yet. I’ve also barely had time or inspiration even though I’ve got some tasting notes lined up. I’m more focused on getting my 5th Birthday Bash in order, and working on club activities (meetings, the magazine, that kind of stuff).
Also, I’ve been looking into doing another mezcal bottle-share, buying a cask of spirit with friends, work, and many other things. Like in the new year when I had some posts on where I’m taking my whisky collection, buying and all that. After each longer holiday I do these things too, but in a more general way.
This does not mean I am considering stopping this blog. I like it far too much for that. This also doesn’t mean I’m giving up on the boozy stuff that’s been going on in general. I’m just trying to down size things a little bit. More peace and quiet. Maybe a tad more just sitting back and enjoying a drink. Like the last drops of Rosebank 25 that I’m downing right now.
So, I might be back tomorrow, or the day after. Maybe next week. But it won’t be long. I just have to get my bearing again.
