Thought about things last night - came to the conclusion that I'm blogging because -
a - I like it
b - It has enabled me to find a place where I can 'say' whatever I want, without upsetting family, friends, who-the-hell-ever.....and I have to be constantly making sure I am not upsetting people as I am the peacemaking middle child....elderly parents to care for, siblings with problems, kids, husband who at the moment is as useful as a chocolate teapot.
c - If I die tomorrow, the kids will have my 'voice' to go over..y'know, if they want to.
d - Sitting here, in the dusty, could do with a going over with the hoover, house, where the
furniture and woodwork etc., is not exactly stylishly 'distressed'..more like bloody suicidal, I feel that instead of beating myself up for being lazy I can tell myself that I am giving myself what magazines recommend as 'me time' or 'meditative moments'
e - enough for now....going to have some tea ....will be back...........

I find it best not to analyse the blogging thing. Just go with the flow. Blog on!

Always a great idea to blog instead of housework don't you think? Gets my vote! It's just so addictive to cruise around the lovely blogging folk's lives.
