Hello – remember me?? Yes I know I have been AWOL for the past couple of weeks, after the blog-a-month and stress of business with christmas preparations and general umbuggerances I could not gather the enthusiasm to write, type, blog .. you know what I mean.
Sometimes blogging feels like the round robin christmas letters, each year I would spend ages putting together the family news, and in the days before I had a word processor I hand wrote them, it was something I enjoyed but as the family has shrunk and the activities lessened the not getting any replies began to annoy and so I stopped and no one has noticed. Sometimes blogging feels like screaming in the woods, even if someone hears will they do anything.
Let me see, the christmas cards are 90% written, the presents are almost gotten but the wrapping has not started, the decorations are still in my Sister’s attic. The christmas menu’s have been discussed, agreed and noted, the shopping list compiled, the dates set to do said shopping have been diarised. Best of intentions have been thunked.
Dishes have been washed, counters yet to be wiped, laundry done and folded but still sitting on the bedroom floor, cards that have arriven are piled on the shelf [gawd knows where they will end up], bathroom cleaning avoided, hoover gathering dust in the cupboard.
I am shattered. I have been experiencing bouts of fatigue and insomnia, I know it is just because so much is going on and around in my head. At the moment I feel like just hunkering down, keeping low and wading on through.
Business has been frantic, with one Director dilly-dallying about the proposed changes, with the deadline coming ever closer finally agreed, but that has brought the deadline to get stuff done a week closer, meaning a week less to go through a vast amount of information and get things ready for the new incumbent. I am so looking forward to it not being my problem anymore although I am fully aware it will take some retraining of the brain to truly unthink about what needs to be sorted.
I cannot count the number of times I have thought or seen something and wanted to blog [usually as a disgusted rant] but even with the dictation tool, I just could not be arsed.
blog.co.uk and I are experiencing a persistent problem, whether logged in or not, whenever I click ‘comment’ a new window opens with an advert [war game, shopping, web site talky tool etc]. Tech said i had a virus. I said If I have then s has the local Apple Store, and Curry’s as well as my iPad and BroInLaw’s Laptop. They said found something and sorted it. I said Nope, still happening. Tedious but that is BCUK in a nut.
Oh heck, need to reserve grocery delivery shop spot and write letter to aged piano teacher who always send generous cheque.
I’ve no time to be here!!!
