My Husband Needs Me....

My dear husband needs me, he finds out in a few days whether indeed his job is safe.

I need you too though. I so enjoy coming here and chatting with you all and so look forward to your wonderful posts. It is a fact though, that I am no multi tasker, I can indeed juggle five balls, but I cannot juggle my life. So I am having to take a little blogging holiday, I spend far too long here, and although I love every minute of it, I cannot give my darling husband and family the attention he and they truly deserve.

I would love to say that I am going somewhere hot, though I am not, I would love to say when I shall be back. Though of that too, I really don't know. I can say though, that I shall think of you all everyday, and shall come visit you and see how you all are. Right my chin is quivering now and you know what that all means, yes a good olde fashioned cry is in order.

My lovely giveaway winners Summerfete and Vintage Tea I hope you like your pretties, if you like the things I like then I am sure you shall :)

Please take care my beautiful, beautiful friends and know that you are all highly thought of in the Poppins' household.

So, I am keeping my fingers crossed for Darling Husband as I know you are too. We may have to move so as you can imagine it is all somewhat in the air, we shall be alright, and whatever the outcome good things shall come out of it I know :) So many of your wonderful comments have really helped.

Darling husband is so brilliant at his work, and I feel for him so much.

I look forward to reading your lovely posts and looking at your pretty photographs, so keep it up, remember I need you :)

  29. Oh no I missed the photo! Sounds like you got some lovely bits, I am really going to miss your posts - I wanted to ask you to show whats in your bag too but didn't want to force you to post on your blog break, but consider yourself asked to show n tell for when you do return :) XX

  30. I am sending positive thoughts to you....and I wish all you wish yourself...we will see you back for sure...till then lovely lady enjoy your family{{{{hug}}} xxx

  31. I will miss you, you have inspired me so much, you will never know just how much.
    what ever happens with hubbie things will work out i am sure. A colleage of mine was recently made redundant and her husband (an archetect sp?) was made redundant 2 days later. thay had only been married 6 months and she had to return to South Africa over Christmas to sort out her visa as it was tied to her job, Hubbie found a new job and could not take time off so they spent their forst Chrismas as man and wife on opposite sides of the world.

    I spoke wiht her today and hubbie has been offered another job for the series of interviews he had before Christmas in the Hampshire countryside (they are in London at the moment) she also has a second interview in Hampshire. they had always dreamed of living in the country and it looks like the dream is going to come true for them. If they had not been made redundant none of this would have happened.
    so keep smiling as good things happen to good people

  40. Hi MP

    Fingers crossed for you all, it's not an easy time for the private sector at the moment, I know. I really hope you get the result you're looking for.
    I think we would possibly have been in the same situation as you (DH was a planning consultant) had DH not moved to a Lecturing position in 2007.
    Feel free to email me if Mr P is interested in lecturing work x

  41. Lot of big hugs - I do hope everything works out okay with the job. Am thinking of you. So many people are going through such a tough time lately. Love Lacey xxx

  45. What can i say, you have grown from strength to strength and it has been an honour to be with you during that journey.
    Your family needs you now and we all understand that, yes we will miss you and your postings, but i would rather see you all healthy and happy than stressed and weak.
    Go stand together and hold each other tight, clothe yourselves in each others love, then come back refreshed and renewed.

    God bless you littlun, and may God strengthen your family.
