Morning Everyone :O) How’s your week going so far? I hope that you are having more good than bad, more ease than struggle and that it’s not raining (unless you happen to love the rain of course). You may or may not have noticed that I have been around less over the last few days, not because I don’t love being here (which I do) but because I have finally gotten around to starting a novel. I have been playing with the idea for a few months but I am now 10,000+ words in and the ideas just keep on flowing.
Morning chaps! Well, my good chum Rory a wonderful guy called bloke, is now responsible for me having to erect a virtual shelf as he has nominated me for another award. Honestly, I am really touched by this so thanks from the bottom of my heart Rory :O) Do wander over and have a chat with him, his blog is incredibly entertaining and I’m sure you’ll love it!
He watches her as she struggles to bring the wood in for the fire, hands cold, head down. It had started to rain when she was splitting the logs but she hadn’t stopped, she’d raised the axe over and over again, slowly fading as her muscles grew weaker. It’s not a long walk from the woodpile to the house but she had done it so many times her step had begun to falter.
Blimey, 2 awards in 7 days, I shall have to put up a shelf at this rate! I am truly honoured to have received this nomination……..no scrap that, it sounds way too stuffy! A big shout out and a huge thank you to Sadje, a prolific and incredibly entertaining blogger; if you don’t already know her please have a wander over and check out her site, I’m sure that you’ll love it :O)
What a wonderful surprise! I came back from Florence to discover that the lovely Rory from A Guy Called Bloke and Doodlepip’s Adventures had nominated me for a Liebster Award. I can’t thank you enough Rory, you are such a fantastic guy and I love reading your blog! You write with such candour and skill and your wonderful personality always shines though!
Have you ever just sat down next to a complete stranger and started telling them your life story, without so much as a by your leave; just rambled on incessantly with no pause to gauge their reaction? If you did you’d probably find that they’d shuffle along and, eventually, off their seat and then walk away as fast as their feet will carry them while turning around every few seconds just to make sure you’re not following them. So, my question to you is, if you wouldn’t behave like that in real life, why would you do it in the blogging world?
Do you have a local, a bar or a coffee shop where you can walk in and be sure of finding someone that you know? You can sit down for 10 minutes or a couple of hours and just chat with people about anything and nothing. If you’re feeling down they’ll buy you a drink and listen to your woes and you do the same for them if they’re having a rough day. Do you know a place like that?
