Hello…I’ve missed you all :)

Isn’t it funny how life just takes off and you feel you don’t have a minute? I have wanted…needed…to post for weeks but found myself chasing my tail (I did tell you I had a tail, right?) it’s so easy to forget about it till I’m contented and happy…and then I feel it wagging! Anyway I managed to get some painting done (no I’m not an artist, not that kind of painting…house painting…walls, doors, floors…obviously the floors were a mistake but I quite like the white spotty look on the laminates – its different!) I also have a cat with a rather cute black gloss streak down his white and ginger coat – he looks more like a badger now. So the decorating should have taken a few days…four at most, but it went on and on and on. I finally finished last night…well I suppose finished is the wrong word…I finally gave up and phoned a painter friend to help out. I regretted it soon after when I showed him into the room where I’d attempted to ragroll the walls, and he screamed…yes screamed with laughter. He asked if I’d used the cat to do it! Charlie Boy had obviously rubbed himself up against the wall (probably trying to remove the black gloss) and was now a lovely shade of powder blue. When I set out to do these things I have good intentions and am sure it’s going to be amazing, but people don’t seem to appreciate my creative skills. I remember a few years ago I told my brother I would cut his hair. Half way through I got incredibly bored and realised it wasn’t as easy as I’d first thought, So I put a hat on him to cover the bald patches and took him to the barber’s. The barber took one look at him and asked if I’d cut his hair with a knife and fork! Some people just don’t appreciate creativity. As my old mate Elbert Hubbard used to say ‘There is no failure except in no longer trying.’ Anyone looking for a hairdresser or painter? 🙂

Blogging 101 – I’m taking the challenge!

I’m beginning 2015 with the challenge of learning to blog. This is something I’ve been meaning to do for years but always found excuses to put it off – but 2015 is going to be different! No more procrastination, this is the year for getting things done – grabbing the bull by the horns – facing up to challenges and so on…

I decided to start a blog because I love to write (blog posts, short stories, articles, jokes, philosophising about life in general and generally just having a good old chat with everyone else who shares my love of words written or otherwise.

I would also like feedback on any posts, stories I write etc. I love exploring old churches, ruins, historical places especially ones with eerie going ons, you know, like the White Lady, The Headless Horseman and such – although I really don’t want to meet any of them in person. Just being told the fable about them is all I want really.

I love stories; reading, writing, telling and hearing them. At the moment I write short stories and have had one published in The Weekly News and a couple in some anthologies. Hopefully I’ll do a lot more this year and maybe even start on that novella I’ve been promising myself.

Also I want to have my blog up and running with loads of followers; other people who stop by for a read and a chat. I’ve taken the Blogging 101 challenge to learn how to blog regularly, instead of the once/twice a year I was doing until now.

Can’t wait to learn all there is to learn about blogging and I thank you all in advance 🙂
