Back where we started

My return to blogging has been a bit thwarted by how complicated the process of purchasing a domain has become since 2009 when I started writing here. Last night saw me staring at the computer screen in frustration, just completely bewildered by the various codes and what should be copy pasted into what box. The whole process might as well have been written in ancient hieroglyphics because I couldn't make any sense of it.

So I've ended up  back here at the old blog, when I had been planning a new name and a new blog.  Never mind, I might work it out some day. Moving on.....

There seems a lot to catch up on in the five months since I stopped writing here. Rather than burst out with it all like one of those terrible braggy Christmas newsletters that used to be all the rage I'll try not to overwhelm with too much information at once.

Come to think of it, blogs, Instagram and Facebook  really can be a braggy Christmas letter which go on every day, all day, all year long. I'll try not to do that. Speaking of Instagram, that's a whole separate account that I won't link to here. Some people "do" both and link them, but I have workmates over there and not here and I'd like to keep this completely separate from my working life. The management at my workplace is extremely conservative, which is why I rarely blog about work except in the most general terms. If you're looking for a tell-all about public libraries (yawn) you won't get it here...but I am taking notes for my expose when I retire. I think I'm joking.

I stopped blogging last year because my hours at work were increasing for at least five months and I knew I wouldn't have the time to write here. I'm nearly at the end of that five months - three weeks to go - I was right and I'm really tired. I'll happily be going back to my old hours and I'll have more time for everything. This time around blogging I'm may write less often but I want to write in more depth about some things. I'm pretty repelled by most blogs these days, to tell you the truth ( except the ones on my sidebar) and don't read much. Many have turned into blatant advertisements for products or written to boast or create lifestyle envy. I don't like it at all. That's not the way blogging started and I don't like that development.

Some days here I might just put up a garden photo or link to something I've read. I'll see how it evolves for me.

It's very nice to be back here again.

Starting my new blog tomorrow.....

As long as I don't get stage fright I'll start tomorrow.
The new site, which is bare bones with nothing on it, is called ...
I hope I've set it up properly, I guess we shall see soon.
Hope you come over for a look.

Dipping my toe

I've taken the shutters off this blog and  am having a little look around......

Four and a half weeks left of my current contract then I'm back to regular shorter hours. Still undecided about resuming writing here.

We've had big changes at home and I'm adjusting to different life patterns and days. I've barely thought about blogging but I'm thinking now how I could do it but do it a bit differently. I think it's time for a change if I come back. 

Still pondering. I'll check back in another day.
