Dear Blog,

It's not you, it's me. You've waited patiently whilst I spent the Summer gallavanting here, there and everywhere, only to remain unrewarded when Autumn came knocking. The heady days of Summer took me over and I set about doing new things and somehow managed to ignore the one thing that makes me happiest of all. I have taken you for granted and been a bad blog friend. You should dump me, really, teach me a lesson.

I didn't mean to neglect you, it's just travel, romance, bbq's, that damn extra daylight got in the way. It would be days before I even noticed I hadn't checked in with you. I realised today how much I missed you, darkness hit at an unfeasibly early hour and you were the one I wanted to turn to. I hope you are still here for me my friend and that I haven't become so out of practice that we remain frosty, Winter can be cold enough.

I bought some nice fingerless gloves today, so chilly or not, my fingers have run out of excuses...

Yours sincerely,


  1. Ahhhh...I'm sure Blog will forgive you. Great post and God I hate when life gets in the way of blogging...God dammm life!!!!!


  2. Blogs are resillient. They forgive and forget.

  3. romance???!?!?!??! ROMANCE?!?!?

  4. yeah she snuck that romance thing in, I noticed too.
    nestled between travel and bbqs

    Is love in the air between a bus ride and a tofuburger?

  5. Jb - I know! One minute you're writing things and the next you're off doing things!!!

    DG - Good to know Lady, good to know!

    peewee and loulou - If it hadn't been for you pesky kids I would have got away with it too...Yes a very lovely Summer romance was had, alas it had a sell by date, geography is a cruel mistress but sometimes a whirlwind is just what the doctor ordered!

  6. Oooh, romance and bbq, what a great combination. Sorry about the sell by date though.


  7. Really neat blog! It was fun to visit you here :)

    Good for you out enjoying your summer! That's what life is for, getting out there and living!

  8. ah, you bad bad blog friend ;) good save though, cute post
