closing down and goodbye

Hello dear bloggy friends

After much thought and consideration I have come to realise that it really is time to move on and close my blog down as it just isn't working for me anymore.  I have been thinking about it for some time as some of you will know, but after various events in my personal life I know that I really need to do new things in 2018 although I have no idea what they will be.  I will delete my blog so that a spammer doesn't steal it. 

Thank you so much for your support and love and kindness over the years, it has been great getting to know you and being friends with you and I really appreciate it.  I hope that all good things come to you and yours and that you continue blogging and sharing and enjoying life.  I will still be on IG for now at least - lovemademyhome - but I might change the name next year, I will let you know though in a post on IG before I do.

I will always be grateful for all that you have bought to me and will send it back to you in abundance.

Happy Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful time and wish you all the very best.

Much love, Amy xx

p.s. it occurred you might panic at this news, I am not sick, nor is Hubby and we are not splitting up or anything unpleasant like that.  It is other things that have happened.


  1. I have left a comment on instagram, but wanted to say here too, thanks for your lovely blog. You could always come back, like Leanne at Todays Stuff, or Sue at Our life in the Country....

  2. I saw your post on IG and wanted to officially come over here to your blog and say "goodbye". I am really sorry that you've decided to step away from your blog, but I understand. I know quite a few bloggers who have done the same and I've been mulling it over in my mind, too. It's much simpler to post a picture once in awhile on IG with a few words. Blessings to you, my dear friend and I hope to continue to see you on IG!

  3. I'm sorry that you've made this decision but know that you won't have made the decision lightly and it will be the right thing for you. There's nothing that says you can't come back later if you choose to - perhaps you could just unpublish your blog for now without deleting everything in case you change your mind? Lots of love to you and yours for whatever you do next xx

  4. Hello Amy,
    I felt very much the same this year and did leave my blog. I love the interaction with my blogging friends but not some of the other things that go along with the online world. I decided to just change my blog settings to private rather than delete it so I can still read it when I need to be reminded of something that I did.
    Best wishes and I will check in to IG soon to see your lovely pictures.

  5. Sorry to see you go . Hope you find new and exciting adventures . Seems like quite a lot of bloggers have left blog land and use IG or Facebook instead as it all can be done by any electronic devise now a days . Take care my friend .
