Blogging and tomatoes

So, why have I stopped blogging? Very simply put, tomatoes. Yes, tomatoes. Damned red fruit… As some of you may know, I work for a company which cans tomatoes. This means that the summer, aka  The Tomato Season, far from being idyllic and relaxing, is an absolute madhouse and by far the busiest time of year at work. I’ve been doing lots of overtime, and some of my friends probably think I have disappeared off the face of the earth, including my poor dog who has spent the last few months basically sleeping under the bed apart to come on our twice daily walks…

But I have made a decision.

Work is important, no doubt about that. It allows you to put a roof over your head and food on the table at the very least; and it can also give you a sence of purpose and fulfillment, force you to get out of bed in the morning and do what is known as Getting Things Done. On a good day. I won’t mention what most of us think of work on a bad day…

However, it is not the only or even the most important thing in our lives. There is and should be so much more. Bloggisng is something that I enjoy, something which gives me the chance to express myself in my own language about things that I am passionate about (food, wine, life in Italy, travel, language…) and to escape a little from the real world. So I have decided to make time for it. End of story.

PS. I still love tomatoes by the way…
