Excuse No. 374

I have been rather slack in the blogging department. It is not that I haven’t wanted to, and I’ve had lots to share, photos poised and tales to tell, but I seem to have lost the habit. And it was a good habit, not like my other less innocuous ones which seem to be holding on tight.

One reason for my reluctance, feeble though it might be, is that my computer is playing up. Every task is mollusc slow and liable for eccentric outcome and my nerves are shot with trying to trick it into submission. I will get a new one, once I have saved my pennies, but in the interim my ever pragmatic Mum, Peggy, has loaned me hers. She even told me the password.

The other glitch in my Off the Edge journey was the blog conversion mishap. After much soul-searching (two minutes), I have decided to ignore it. I find this is often the best solution for problems. Just pretend they don’t exist and they definitely won’t go away, but you can have a shilling of respite until they return to bite you on the bum.

The upshot of all this rambling, is that I will make a concerted effort to post more often. You may or may not think this is a good thing, it all depends on your point of view. But it definitely will be a good thing for me.

The above Lamprocapnos spectabilis was supposed to be ‘Cupid’ but isn’t. I should complain, but I have decided to ignore it, this one is unlikely to bite me on the bum, there is too much love for that.

  1. Great idea that. I’ll definitely work on the basis that problems don’t exist until they return. I’m off now to build a wall across the end of the drive………

  3. I enjoy your posts so am glad to read that you will be posting more. I know what it’s like to get out if the habit and sometimes it’s good to take a break from these things.

    I chuckled at the phrase ‘mollusc slow’ and will certainly be adding that to my vocabulary! πŸ˜† 🐌

    1. Thank you, to think I used to blog every day! I agree, it shouldn’t be a chore. Sometimes in the winter it is difficult to find a photo or something positive to say and no one likes a moaner! But now it is my favourite time of year and I’m raring to go. 😊


  4. Well I have not a clue as to what ‘Cupid’ should look like, but this is an excellent photo of the bleeding heart. I am a tad concerned about all the bum biting that might be going on. Sounds painful…
