I don’t think I’ve ever gone remotely this long between posts. Even a week is unusual.
So what’s been going on?
Well … there have, as some of you surmised, been health issues. Nothing nasty, or life threatening, but prolonged and debilitating, resulting in a distinct lack of energy or motivation to do much more than couch surf.
Add to that the lengthy periods each day spent talking/singing to Miss Abigail via Skype, and well, there was [another] distinct lack of time and/or energy for crafting well thought out bon-mots and clever segues.
… and then, I’m sure a lot of you would agree that Facebook et al have changed the face of blogging. It’s so much easier to just dash off a sentence or two as a status update, and in a day or so it’s consigned to the dustbin of history.
I’ve pondered long and hard as to whether continued blogging served any purpose. I mean, I’m not flogging any business enterprise or political/social/moral agenda, and most of my dearly beloved rarely, if ever, read the thing. So why continue? and the answer is, I suppose, that I have missed it, and those of you that do read, however sporadically.
So there. I’m back.
There has been gardening and the general round of ‘life-in-the-country’ type chores … when I had the energy.
There has been knitting [ but I’ll have to go back and check where we left off ]
There has been crochet [ditto]
about which I will tell you later.
Oh, and the annual Christmas insanity is in the process of getting underway. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
