Yes, I am rubbish. I think about blogging, I open the blog, I click Add New Post and my mind goes blank. Rather like now. But the rather awesome Karl at Secondhand Tryptophan started blogging again after a break and after reading said post I got a small spark of the blogging joy again. Of course, now I have to come up with something to write and that is the hard bit. Let’s see… Since my last post I have… er… Well, there was the… And then the… Nope.
I got older. Yes, there’s one thing. Phew! I am now 33 years old.
I finished Script Frenzy and have now got more ideas than I know what to do with which is just as well because I am going to need something to distract me
We don’t have an appointment for Neil’s camera test yet, so still no date for his operation… I am the embodiment of a zen like calm. Honest.
Yesterday I voted in the AV Referendum and in my local elections. All around I can say that I felt pointless as neither the AV campaign or the local candidates did enough to convince me of anything. The local candidates have been getting quite a lot of my ire on Twitter because they never bothered to campaign at all. No leaflets, no meetings, no interviews in the local press, no canvassing, no posters, no websites, no Facebook pages, no tweets, nothing. Not even entirely sure they actually exist! But, well, at least I know for certain that nothing will change. Councillor Peter Pringle (who won) is a LibDem in a (now) Labour run council. Ignored he shall be if he bothers to try to do anything. And the Labour Council will just spend the next few years doing nothing and throwing their hands in the air squealing, “We can’t do anything because of all of the cuts!” while they conveniently forget that it is their party’s fault that we have all these problems now!
Political rant over.
The Royal Wedding! Yes! I LOVED the dress and the whole caboodle. Trees in the Abbey? Oh, I loved that. Neil and I had an indoor barbecue in celebration and he pretending not to see when I got all weepy over the vows. Total mess.
I went to a DESMOND Project training session. DESMOND is well Diabetes Education and Self Management for Ongoing and Diagnosed – it was informative, interesting and more than a little annoying. But I learned one thing. I can eat anything I want so long as I have it in moderation. Yep. That was it. And you can have a treat a week. And diet soda is fine. Oh, and depression is just feeling ‘a bit low’. I am really hoping that there is another one so I can learn even more.
The 2nd Kirkham (St. Michael’s) Scout (click here to support them through easyfundraising – register and shop) AGM also happened last month. It was the usual level of crazy and I have 11 months off before it all starts again. I am still in awe of the leaders and helpers that continue to give up their time to make sure the girls and boys have a great time!
I’m sure there was other stuff but I really can’t remember. It’s been a month of little tiny things and great big things but mostly I have just been waiting for something to happen so we can move forwards.
