My more astute and committed readers (who I love more than life itself) might have realised that this is the second Friday in a row with no Film Friday feature. There are two main reasons for this:
I am insanely busy: For the last few weeks I have had antenatal classes two evenings a week, plus personal training two evenings a week, plus whole days of hospital appointments, plus working full time, plus visiting family in preparation for Little O’s arrival. I have just not been able to fit in as many films.
I have no concentration span: At 34 weeks pregnant I sometimes struggle to focus for very long. I’m tired all the time because I don’t sleep well and I am preoccupied with planning for the baby as well as dealing with my gestational diabetes and anxiety. Sitting down for a full two hours and getting through a film is hard. When I do get time I end up watching Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners and history programmes about Anne Boleyn that help me fall asleep.
I think this is probably the beginning of a slowing down of this particular feature. I am under no illusions that I will have much leisure time once Little O makes his appearance and it is inevitable that I will have to choose where I spend the time that I do have. I don’t plan to stop watching films altogether or to abandon my blog completely but I think Film Friday particularly is going to become something more of a fortnightly or monthly feature.
I hope that those of you that enjoy it will still check in and also forgive me if it takes me a little longer to get around to all of your awesome posts.
