the man's new
a potential birthday present for Minx's friend - so very shoddily made (by me) that it is now my new purse.
Minxy jeans revamp - cut off those tattered hems, turn 'em up a couple of inches, whack some braid on and 'hey baby, groovy cut offs!'.
Slowly slowly, life in Moogshouse is getting back to normal. I seem to have absented myself from blogland recently. There have been times, of late, when I have seriously considered giving up my blog.
Blogging and even reading and commenting on blogs became another big hill to climb. Another thing on the increasingly daunting 'to do' list. Not helped by the man himself hogging 'my' computer for what felt like weeks (we are shockingly unwireless in this house....my laptop lies dormant while the big computer is in use....grrr), in his search for the perfect new motorcycle. All the while talking at me about the finite details of every motorbike ever made...ever.....in the world.
We (finally, after much stressy c**p with the seller) picked up his shiny new toy on Friday night. I thought that would be the end of his need to monopolise MY COMPUTER! Sadly not....there was research to be done....extra twiddly bits to be found...etc etc.
I had intended to reply to all your lovely comments. I had intended to read all your blogs. I had intended to do the ironing and clean the bathroom too but an air of neglect had settled in. It seems that once you get out of a habit - however enjoyable (or not, where ironing is concerned) - it can be hard to get back in.
Today, I took drastic action.
Rest assured, no ironing was involved.
I took a deep breath and clicked 'mark as read' on the 679 blog posts waiting to be read and/or commented on in Google Reader (!!!).
A little of the fog lifted.
A little self-induced pressure is off.
Blogging can be fun again.
Feels good :-)
