Hi all. I’m going to be taking a hiatus…for an undertermined amount of time.

The past weeks I’ve been feeling a bit stressed, tired and depressed, so I’ve decided to take a break and rest but also make a few changes in my life.  For a start I’ve cut my hair and I’ve decided to loose some serious weight and put some exercise back into my life.  Visiting blogs every day and reading tempting recipes doesn’t help.

I won’t be going anywhere, until we move to Nafplio, and that alone will keep me quite busy but you’ll probably be seeing me around on facebook or on twitter.

I have a few other things I want to do but with so little time available I have been postponing them, so I will focus on these until I am ready to come back.

The winners of Creative Concoctions #5 have been announced here.  Congratulations to both of you.

As promissed I have made a random.org draw for all the participants of  the five events.

If you don’t remember your number, you can check the links below.

AND THE WINNER IS  ……

 

Thanks again to all of you who have participated and congratulations to the winner, whom I will contact soon.

Have a wonderful summer!

    Hey Ivy – I wish you all the best and good for you for taking a break from the blogosphere (although I will miss you) – sometimes we become too much of cyborgs and it's good to become human again! I am excited that you're moving to Nafplio. Hope I can see you there some time!

  12. Ο/Η MaryMoh λέει:

    Thanks very much for dropping by my blog, Ivy, even though you are very busy. I am also going through crazy times…….24 hours seem not enough everyday…haha. I have also cut down on my blogging and visiting blogs to pay attention to some of the important things that I need to do. It does help. I do hope you have a wonderful break and you do need that. But you will always be often on my thoughts. Always love your blog. Take care and have a wonderful day :D

    I understand about needing some time for yourself during these changes. Here too, some months back things were changing at lightening speed so I took some time off. I'm glad to hear you are continuing with your health goals and now trying to lose some weight. I know earlier this year I had made this decision since my doctor told I was on the road to diabetes … I have already PCOS … I managed to lose 22kg now since Jan … not easy seriously but as per your goal to lose that much by end of the year I'm happy to tell you it is possible. I wish you all the best dear sweet Ivy … as always I enjoy your blog and food … in fact I'm trying your beet kardopita today — it's in the oven right now =) … lots of love to you and your family
