Me again

This can't be right. It can't be that I haven't posted since 14th August. I knew I'd neglected my blog for a while but I'd honestly no idea it was for so long. Does anyone care? I don't know, but I do. No point having a blog if I'm not going to keep up with it. I've been busy (really I have) but not with things that would make interesting blog reading. But good writers don't wait for something madly interesting to happen to inspire them. They just write and make whatever they write interesting through the strengths of their writing. So why can't I? (don't answer that, it's a rhetorical question).

Anyway, to get me going with my blog again, I decided to just sign in and, well, get going. I'm tapping away on the keyboard just letting my rambling thoughts pour onto the page. This isn't the way to make riveting reading, I know, but at least it's getting me going again. I don't want this blog to degenerate into the character of the Tony Hancock's sketch who tried to keep a diary and said things like 'Today I had a boiled egg for breakfast'. But, on the other hand, if I just wait for pearls of wisdom before I write anything, I might as well clock off and go to bed.

The room has just filled with the sound of barking dogs (my new doorbell tone) so I'd better see what's up. I might just have been about to write something wonderful. But, like Coleridge getting interrupted by the 'man from Porlock', the world will never know. I'll be back soon.

Nice to see you back Jean :o)

I'm imagining it was the postman with an exciting parcel for you, or a friend you haven't seen for ages. Something nice anyway! The barking dogs doorbell is a good idea.

I care! Hope you'll blog again soon.
Barking dogs.... Does the doorbell frighten anyone away?

Jean said...

Karen - No, it was nothing interesting. Just an annoying salesman. I should have set my fictitious dogs on him!

Miriam - No, the doorbell doesn't frighten anyone away as the 'dogs' can only be heard from the inside. I think the novelty is fast wearing off. Shoot the damn dogs!!
