Regular blogging resumes / Monday shop post: Mac Pelican

I've had quite a busy time working on some large work projects over the past few months and so decided to take some time away from blogging so I could concentrate on these projects.  I think this was actually a very good thing for me ... the blogging pause gave me time to think about what I blog about and I realised that I was probably blogging more for others than myself.  Plus I write and patch up learning materials for a living and I found that I was starting to see blogging as just another writing task that I had to commit to, rather than something joyful and creative.
So after some time away I feel rejuvenated and I've decided to focus more on blogging about things that I really like whenever I feel like it - not sure exactly what this means yet, but you're welcome to drop by any time to take a look.

Lee :)

To start the ball rolling again, I thought I'd post a few pictures of a cute little shop in Hawthorn, Melbourne, that I want to get around to visiting when I get a spare moment.  It goes by the very intriguing name of Mac Pelican and the address is 842 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn. Hope you like it too.

All images from Mac Pelican.  You can check out their site for lots more lovely pictures.

well WB blogger! I was beginning to wonder if you'd ever return- so glad you are --- can't wait to see your work continue. I def only do my blogs for me, so I know what you mean about crossing the line of it being for others,... it's natural I think considering so many judge (I mean comment)!!! hehe

Hi Lee

Great to see you back and refreshed! I think we all need time to reflect about our blogs as they are very time consuming and coming up with fresh ideas all the time can be challenging.
Still love your Monday Posts!!!
