Hi Everyone!! Welcome back to The House of Lotz!!
Thank you all so much for being patient and hanging in there over the last month or so. It has been amazing to take a break and really just rest.
Before we get back to our usually scheduled programming, I wanted to answer a few questions that I have been sent whilst I have been gone:
“Why did you take a break?”
That’s the biggest question of them all. To be honest, I have been finding July to September really hard over the last few years. As some of you may remember, my Mama sadly passed away 2 years ago (2 years tomorrow to be exact) so this time of year is just naff for my family. I know time is a great healer, and our friends and family are wonderful…..however I would like to make one thing very clear: to morn a loss is very personal. Some people are fine within the year, others need that little bit longer. Until I can ride the wave in the best way for me, I think these little summer breaks might be a regular thing. I suffer with depression, anxiety and episodes of paranoia anyway, so taking a step back is really important for my overall wellbeing.
“What have you been up to the last month?”
The simple answer is: ALL THE THINGS!
I have been having the best time letting my hair down! Pretty much every weekend has been spent with friends, family and the husband. It really has been wonderful. I have really missed just being Lotz, rather than all the other Lotz’s I have to be all the time. It’s nice to be raw, just as I am.
As I write this I am home alone writing in the garden (surrounded by laundry on the line and hanging racks), eating strawberries…..and it is wonderful!
“Has anything changed over your break? What content have you got brewing?”
Nothing will be changing in the sort of content or schedule for the time being….my 9 to 5 and mental capacity just can’t commit to anything more than that at the moment! I am hoping for a twice weekly series nearer/around Christmas….but who can say!
I have been doing a little something on my instagram called “coffeerunthought” which has been so much fun to creat……So if you fancy hearing the morning musings of this crazy lady, please pop over!! Just look for thehouseoflotz and I am there!!
So that was it. Everything I have been up to and all the things that have been going on.
I hope you have all been good and can’t wait to see you next week!!
Hugs and love xXx
