I'm not gone

Sun in January
No, I'm not gone. I just haven't been blogging as much as I want to. I have been thinking a lot of why my blog posts are so rare. It is not because I don't have things to write about. I have lots of unfinished projects like this one lying around that just waits to be shown. And though the finished projects are fewer than the unfinished, they exist and want to be shown off too.

Earlier this week a possible reason came to mind. When I get home from work each day, I simply don't want to turn on my computer unless I really have to. And when I do turn it on it is to pay bills, or other boring stuff. Thus blogging becomes something I feel I should do, not something I really want to. I find blogging fun and I want to enjoy it. So what to do?

I think I have found a perfect solution: a café! I love sitting at a café reading newspapers and drinking tea or coffee and just relax. So now I'm sitting with a nice cup of tea, a banana loaf, watching people pass by outside and blog. This feels so right!

This blog post should really be accompanied by a picture of my café table, but of course, I forgot to bring my camera. Instead I have chosen a picture from my last biking trip. Yes, a biking trip in the middle of the winter. For a girl from the far north this is very exotic :) You see, I'm not in Norway right now. Until July I will be staying in Lancaster, north west in England. The picture is taken in Glasson Dock - and did I mention that is was sunshine and January? (Remember I had not seen the sun since November because of the polar night back home) But more on my experiences from england in my next café-post.
