The ‘Sort Of’ Goodbye

It’s the post that’s been wobbling around inside me for a long time.

Nine months. Oh, dear.

So many months of oops! 

I’ve known for quite some time that this post would very likely be a goodbye, of sorts. A so long, really, because how could I say goodbye to a world that has so beautifully nurtured all the love I’ve spilled into it?


How could I permanently close the door to such a place?

I couldn’t.

I wouldn’t.

I won’t.

Instead, I’ll say goodbye for now.

I’ll say: please don’t expect me anytime soon. The reality is, I may not be back for years.  As well as being a busy Mummy of two, I’m writing a novel—my very first— a literary fiction novel about love and friendship and loss. So pretty much about…life.

It’s the reason I’ve not been back here for so long. I’ve found that writing this type of book is taking a lot out of me, creatively— a lot of energy, a lot of time—these new characters of mine, they are demanding all of me.

It’s why I need to come to a full stop with this blog, rather than just the comma I’ve left you with. Will she or wont she be back? Even I haven’t been sure. But I am now. And as much as I am drawn to this space, I’ve realised that if I want to finish this novel, I need to give it the time and space it needs to fly.


Thank you to those of you who have read, liked, or commented on anything I’ve ever posted here—you’ve thrilled me.

Thank you to those of you who’ve continued to check this space, only to find nothing new from me. Your unwavering loyalty is the reason for this post—you’ve warmed my heart; you deserve my loyalty in return.

Lastly, thank you to the beautiful friends I’ve made in this blogging community. Particular thanks must go to CC, Victo Dolore and When I Had a Sea Horse. Your talent and vulnerability has opened parts of my heart I didn’t know existed—you’ve made me a better writer and a better person. So thank you. Thank you so, so much.

Without further ado, I sign off.

Until next time.

xx Misscookas.

    I have checked. I have only hoped with all my heart your life was as you described.
    Fulllllll of the happiness you so much deserve.
    Your book sounds so exciting. More than that….your life with your beautiful family…

    This post brought me to happy tears. But it is I that am thanking you. Your blog and you…have brought so much meaning and friendship to my life. It was beautiful.

    You..are beautiful. Thank you. Goodbye for now…I’ll always think of you. I’m just sitting here with so much joy in my heart for you.

    • Thank you, my lovely CC. We, this little family of mine and I, are so happy; a lovely little team.
      I wish I could have shared more of my little girl with you all: she is all kinds of delightful, worth every bit of the rocky road on the way to her. Hopefully one day I will! I hope your life has been smooth sailing, or at least, something like it, too! Thank you again for being a wonderful friend to me on here. Always there with a kind word. I’ll never forget that. So much love to you my dear CC. xxxx
