"And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain"
Consider this: in October I mentally committed myself to writing a post a day through the month of November. Many people live the sort of lives where there's enough material to post three times a day so the whole challenge appeared almost ridiculously easy, a photo, a joke, an anecdote...all would be grist to my blog mill.
I already had some ideas tucked away in Word, files full of photos on the computer and stacks of albums downstairs if I ran short. I have shelves of folders bulging with recipes and know more village gossip than I should. (Me speaking French with a foreign accent doesn't mean I don't understand what you're saying!).
So I was poised for success, in with a stab at winning a shiny, brand new customised template; this was going to be my moment of glory...
When my son broke a vertebra...I blogged on.
Sitting in the hospital every day for 4 hours...blogging was light relief
Missing a reunion with a brother I haven't seen for years...the blog was solace.
Actually the daily post became a crutch, something to look forward to as H. and I changed shifts and barked instructions to each other over our mobile phones.
And when I started this I had no intention of sharing all that but please be assured that Son was in pain and uncomfortable but never in any danger. I would not ever take that lightly....
And in the middle of all that I switched to Beta.... and blogged on..
And what defeated me? Bloody technology! In the first instance two and a half days without a connection and then when I attempted catching up yesterday another half day sans internet. At the mere mention of posting, the computer would lie down and whimper.
And I truly am convinced H. will divorce me if I mention NaBloPoMo again..
Congratulations to all who finished.
And, please could someone tell me why, without me doing anything at all, the font or its size has changed again?
