Normal Service Will Shortly Be Resumed

2 Oct

Image result for i'll be back

Hello, bloggers who used to read me.

I have finished the MA and I’m on my rest month (very much needed), but I intend to begin blogging again, at least once a week.

I say ‘rest month’…it includes a choir concert (in which I sing, not listen in the audience. I say ‘sing’…), a visit from the grandson (his first to our home!), the usual writing groups, sundry poetry readings, poetry workshops, a visit to the Hub (still residing here, but I have to schedule him in), and SLEEP.

In the meantime, I thought I’d repost my favourite-ever photograph, to give you something gross to think about:

Photo by Best DSC!

When my hair was long, the Hub shoved it through my sleeve and told me I needed to shave my armpits.

My hair is now short but the latter is true. No time to shave ‘pits when you’re on a deadline.

See you in Movember, when I shall not be plucking my moustache hairs, in solidarity with lazy people.

      Thanks! I’m glad I did it but relieved it’s over 🙂

      I’m looking forward to getting back to some normality.

        bravo, bravo. Congratulations, you were truly missed. There was talk of a rescue canine event, but calmer heads prevailed.

    Cheers, TB! Congrats on the MA & welcome back to Blogville! Several of us were getting SERIOUSLY worried about your absence.

      I’m sorry! Time just got away from me. I won’t let it happen again, I promise. Until the next time, anyway.

    Congratulations on the MA. Now that you’re really, really smart I’ll be contacting you instead of Wikipedia when I need to know something. And welcome back. Dang girl, you’ve been missed!

      Aww, you always say the sweetest things.

      Think it’s worth me putting up an I Need Donations To Keep Going banner like Wikipedia does?

    Congratulations on completing your MA! That’s a very fine accomplishment, and it sounds like everything else is pulling on your time, as well. It’s great to hear even the briefest update and lovely to think you will be more consistently posting again! 🙂

    Completion of an MA entitles you to far more of a rest than the one you have outlined!

    How long did it take you to get used to your husband’s sense of humour?

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
