Er..well hello

I am sorry. I have been a tad disheartened. No need to call for help. I have just been a shining example of how lots of tiny nicks can stop you in your tracks and suddenly you find that time has got away from you and you haven’t blogged and just how much of a time stealer Twitter is. So, for all those who are calling in on the off chance, I have been mostly

  • Suffering with a migraine that lasted about eight days with a couple of breaks in the middle. This meant that screen time had to be limited and the people who pay me for the work I do on a day to day basis were not likely to say – “No – go ahead and use what little energy you have to blog – we’ll be right here when you get back”
  • Making sure Aged Parent is ok. She has taken up with a lady who, in her younger days, was what we used to call “a bit of a girl”. She is a very nice Christian woman apparently who has recently been widowed. We are only slightly concerned that last week she informed Aged Parent that God had cursed her (lady not Parent) with an “unacceptably large sex drive”. She has been signed up to a Christian Dating Agency but apparently there are only slim pickings there and she is looking at signing up with Chat magazine. Aged Parent is liking her company when they talk about church – less so when talking about men. Both of our FOWs are seeing her as a very promising development in life.
  • Speaking of FOWs both are on verge of living at home at the moment and indeed – for the moment. Eldest child has finished university for now – possibly and is looking into ways to get involved in chosen field while working part time. Youngest child will be doing last year of Uni from home – because she can. Because it saves money and her chap lives locally. HOH and I are well on the way to being totally at peace with these unexpected developments. 
  • Anyway to return to Aged Parent. After being ill for much of the winter, she would now like to return to church. She does however feel a bit weak and feeble on her own so HOH and I have been accompanying her. It has been quite good actually and we are seriously considering moving with her so that we can keep an eye on her. It will mean going to a C of E which I would have said is against my religion (pun intended) but it is very groovy. More details to follow if we actually make the leap.
  • I have been a bit naffed off with my blog. Not blogging – just the blog. Some stupid thing has got into my stats which means that some posts are showing as having 3000 views a week or something. I got quite worked up about it. Someone said I should go the whole hog and get a website and change things up a bit. I dunno – I’ll think about it. 

Anyway, thanks very much for calling in – if you did – I have no idea with these stats. I could be whistling into an empty bucket for all I know. Or transmitting to the whole of China. Ain’t life grand?

    Hi, just to let you know that you aren't whistling into an empty bucket! Hope migraine season is over now.

    Good to see you today, and sorry about the migraine. They bring one down, to the knees or further.
    Your mum and her friend sound hilarious!

      Thank you for that. Unfortunately, her friend may only be a temporary addition. My mum isn't keen on too much of "that" kind of talk

    Sorry you've been under the curse of a migraine. Glad to see you back blogging. I suspect you have more readers than you think!
