Back in blog land

Hello bloggy friends.. It's been weeks since I last posted.
I could lie and say I took a much needed hiatus to reflect and refocus. 

That would be a big fat lie.

I just haven't really had much to say. The blog world is overflowing with so many people hot on the pulse of every social drama or conflict, every injustice and here I am, wondering what the heck I'm gonna make for dinner, and how on earth I'm going to get all these clothes dry on the middle of a cold wet Victorian winter..?

Does that make me shallow? That I spend more time thinking about the general comings and goings in our own little house than I do about the greater matters of the universe? Probably.

But as hard as I try I just can't get on board with constant social outrage that seems to be fuelling the greater portion of blogging land at the moment.  I'd rather have a laugh at something silly, or admire something gorgeous. 

I'm the one posting goofy pictures of a cat who missed the window sill.

I'm the one saying "Nawwww" at the fluffy baby bunnies.

I'm the one chuckling at this and forwarding it to everyone I know who grew up watching the Muppet Show

( Hahhaaaaa , you just read that using the chef's accent, didn't you!)

So for a while I've wondered if I should be bothered with this blogging thing, because I really don't seem to fit the norm. I'm not deep and meaningful ( I have short bursts of that but nothing sustained). 
I'm not a 'Mummy Blogger", I'm fairly old fashioned in what I think is appropriate in public.... and I don't have my ranty pants on twice weekly.

But I've decided that I will keep doing it, because I like it. And if my non-ranty posts amuse someone, that's lovely.

I'll leave the social rants to someone else.


  1. I know what you mean. I'm an escapist. I spend my time on the internet looking a pretty pictures of things I probably won't get around to doing, but I love looking anyway x

  2. Ha! I love this! continue to blog you make me smile : )

  3. Makes me smile too! There are enough ranters in this world but we need people who can see the good/silly/funny in the mundane! How much more content would we all be if we were content with whatever our lot in life is, and could laugh at ourselves! Luv u heaps!

  4. Oh Lisa! Don't stop blogging! Talk about whatever you want to. Sometimes it's nice to come across a post that isn't all heavy and serious. Fun and light has definitely a place in this world! x
