I’m longing for a 40-hour day!
This is both an explanation and a request for absolution, mainly to my favourite bloggers whose posts I have “liked” and commented upon in the past. You know who you are. 😉
You may have noticed an absence of such comments/likes from me over the past couple of months. The reasons for this are fourfold.
- A day is comprised of only 24 hours. I know it’s not news to you (or to me) but – sob! – it’s a problem.
- I’ve had a live-in boyfriend since September. John is a super helpmate and all-round fantastic person – but it means I do way more things as part of a duo than I did before, when my activities were mostly solo. My blog-post-reading time has thus diminished. (Yeah, it’s all your fault, John! 😅)
- My writing time has increased immensely. This includes time spent using a thesaurus or dictionary, so that I don’t say things like “My writing time has increased bigly.” I’ve also begun doing research for a novel.
- Moreover, I must keep my own blog updated with my Friday Follies and Laughter: The Universal Language series, and other occasional posts.
In sum, mea culpa for my absence in the “like” and commenting areas of your posts. I promise to read them when I have the chance. I trust you lovely people will understand.
Au revoir, mes amis!
