Neno’s Award

I'd like to thank Resounding Glass so much for giving me this award! He is such a good friend and talented writer. He has helped me lots with his support and advice and words of encouragement. You're a star, Tristan.

Neno’s Rules
1. As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
2. To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.
3. Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.
4. Don’t forget to mention the person who gives you the award.
5. Answer the awards question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
6. Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.
7. Don’t forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

The reason I love to blog is because I love putting my thoughts on paper. Nowadays, the scourge of absentmindedness has left me a bit verbally vague, so I write things down instead. I like to laugh at my mishaps. Is that not what dottery old mothers (and grans) are all about?

I'd like to pass the Award to:


Rentaghostwriter on hold for the moment

Although this site looks like an interesting concept, unfortunately there has been a change of ownership and business is on hold, until the website has been redeveloped. I will let you know when it is up and running again

I've caught a bug!

Yes it's true, I've caught a bug. The Ebay bug. (I'm a bit of a late developer!)

It is such a delightful pastime. I can't explain the feelings of excitment I get, waiting for the post to arrive with my latest parcel. I only spend a few pounds at a time, on craft supplies, so it's not a major drain on my finances. But is that how it starts? What will I be looking to purchase next? Surely not that classic, racing green, S-type jag, I've always had an notion for? I wish!!

One humugous downside to trolling Ebay, it is soo... time consuming. I can't get on with anything else for scrolling through pages upon pages of bargains!

Stumbled again

It looks like my story, The tale of the embarassing medical examination, has hit a new high on Stumbled Upon. The renewed interest has added a few pence to my income.

Yes, that title has really sold it's self, although the absence of any 'I liked it's' or comments indicate, it may not have been quite what the viewers where looking for!

Where is that missing word?

I keep misplacing something, well quite a number of things really.

Up till recently, I've lived my life in my usual scatterbrained fashion and when I say scatterbrained I don't mean slightly airy fairy, I'm talking about the dim witted and bemused variety of muddled brain function, particular to a woman of my age.

If it wasn't for the handy little thesaurus and synonyms function on this computer, you wouldn't get a coherent word from me.

No, writing isn't much of a problem, (but obviously, I'll let you be the judge of that!) my major headache is the skill of holding a normal, everyday conversation. My attempts consist of lots of broken sentences and phrases and plenty of blank stares as I rake my empty brain for that missing word.

Forgetting words is a particular talent of mine, unusual in a writer, don't you think? My family used to finish my sentences for me, but now even they are struggling. Have they lost the skill or have I just got worse?
