So It’s Been A While…

So…it’s been a while.

A really long while.

Over a year in fact.

And you might well be wondering, where have I been?  What have I been up to?  Do I still like classic films?


Well, to start with…where have I been?  Still here, still around.  I now have another child, so that definitely takes up a lot more of my time.  I haven’t been up to anything really earth shattering but life started getting busier, blogging started feeling more like a chore rather than a pleasure, so I decided to take a break.  As it so happened, the break turned out to be longer than I anticipated.

Do I still like classic films?  Of course.  I always have and I always will.  Classic films are always going to be a part of my life.  But sometimes I go through periods where they are all I want to watch and sometimes I go through periods where I don’t really want to watch them at all.  Sometimes I need a change of pace.  But no matter what, I am always going to be a classic film fan.


So, where do we go from here?  Well…I’m starting to get back into classic films.  I don’t have the three hour nap times in the afternoons I once had to dedicate to watching a classic film, but I do have some evenings that I can use to convince my husband to watch with me.  Or I can even watch on my own while he does something else!  I’m starting to listen to You Must Remember This again, a truly wonderful podcast about Hollywood’s first 100 years.  That’s definitely sparking my interest again.

Will I come back to blogging?  Maybe?  Hopefully?  I think I would like to, but I don’t know when exactly that will happen or in what quantity.  But it’s definitely something that is on my radar once again.


And so…this is just me poking my head back in and saying “Hello, I haven’t forgotten you!”
