I’m not very good at drawing attention to myself. I go all red and stuttery-like. SO WHY DO YOU HAVE A BLOG WOMAN? I hear you ask. (Lordy knows, I haven’t quite worked that bit out). But as much as I come over all inexplicably squirmy, I also really appreciate positive feedback that isn’t only coming from my long-suffering Mum. So, thanks to Justine at Mixtapezine for letting me be Blog of the Week and Katiecrackernuts for very nicely pointing people in my direction. And while I’m on an Academy Award style roll... thanks to those who generously let me hang around on their blogroll and to the commenty types who are an unexpected blogging perk and delight and fabulous source of work procrastination. Thanks also to the original lovely old ladies, Myrtle and Eunice and the pet angel fish, Myrtle and Eunice.
Sadly, the angel fish Myrtle has passed into the next world. A traumatic time for all, not helped when the middle kid perkily asked what one did with a dead fish and I distractedly suggested a worm farm destination. More than one life lesson learnt there, with an extended period of mourning, a bells and whistles empty-sultanas-packet-coffin and a solemn burial performed in the front garden next to the hose “so we can water her and she’ll be able to breathe”.
Goodness, I can go on.
