Well, that was another week! June 14th 2019

Can you believe it’s Friday once again? I very nearly missed typing this drivel post as my head is still on Tuesday, not Friday.

After last week’s luxuriously long weekend, this week has positively flown by… which normally happens the other way around, but I’m not complaining.

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of the whole blogging malarkey. You’d think after being off-line for so long, it would be easier to get back into blogging, but for me that certainly isn’t the case. Yep, I’m getting posts out daily. Yep, I’m visiting the blogs I follow when I can, and I even manage to (drum roll please!) comment on the odd occasion. But nope! I’m still lagging way behind in the replying to comments here. It’s all balance, and I shall perpendicularise myself in due course. Probably quite some time before Brexit, it must be said.

We’ve had serious weather warnings here this week. We haven’t had the weather that the warnings were for, but I suppose fore-warned is fore-armed, even for no-shows. Oh, there was a clap of thunder on Wednesday. We have had rain, however… but the nice rain. Don’t get me wrong, I love the rain, any kind of rain, but this week we’ve had the light sprinkly variety. Oh, we all got drenched by it, but pleasantly so.

The balls of fluff are back on the Lake – the gooselets, that is. Only they are growing rapidly now, and have become more neck than fluff. They still have a while to go until they become proper geese, but at the rate they’re growing it will be sooner rather than later.

Unless time decides to do it’s own thing once again. I don’t mind time, I really don’t!

No links again this week, but I will get some for next week’s post.

Happy Weekend once again!

Tom.

This weekend

This weekend was how weekends should be.

Relaxing. Restful.

Even the time seemed to slow down and allow me to get quite a lot done with time to spare! All blog posts replied to / commented on / caught up on. Piles of washing done and dried. Food ate. Sleep slept. Posts written.

Bliss.

Now that it’s Monday, mind, I’m sure things will get back to normal.

But it was good while it lasted. Always a bonus.

Lateness or Neverness

Lateness or Neverness…
Which is the betterness?
And can one be forgivensome
With no good excuse?

Lateness or Neverness…
In the realms of togetherness
Need something not troublesome
With not much to do

So, Lateness or Neverness…
Lateness is betterness
‘Though it can be cumbersome
With the words that I use

I don’t know about you, but I’m still caught up in a weird vortex. Part of me is a day ahead, another part is a day behind, and my blogging is all over the place. I’m still scheduling my posts (I don’t know if you’ve noticed) to keep myself vaguely on line, and commenting here and there, VERY sporadically. I’m getting by, although not as smoothly as I once did (I am smooth. You may or may not have noticed). I will get back into the swing. Into the groove. Into the rhythm (yes! I spelt rhythm correclty, first time – although I spelt correctly correclty so it doesn’t really count!) in due course.

I just need to free myself from this vortex, is all.

This morning I woke with that fabulous Friday feeling. It soon fell flat when I realised it was Thursday.


The City Sleeps

I built this city.

I built this city in big blue blocks.

I built this city in thirty minutes.

I built this city in PowerPoint.


It’s tiring work building cities. (And building the matching signature to go with it…)

Good night!


Beware! Spammers Are On The Loose! .

Kind of obvious, but hey ho!

A warning for Six Word Saturday.

Well, it does fit in… sorta.

This links to my other blog.

And it appears treachery is afoot.

A little added drama for Saturday!!!

I think that’s enough sets of six words for now, so I’ll continue as normal. As normal for me. Whatever that may be…

I’ve received a few new followers on my other blog, Splodge and Splatter, over the past few weeks, and I’m not complaining about that at all. I like followers, and, believe it or not, I do like following as well (when I get the chance to, that is (but that is another story (ongoing, but best kept for another time.)))

I recently posted Meteor Shower and the other day a comment was left in moderation, from one of these new followers, that merely said ‘! .’ I didn’t approve it, for no other reason than the fact that I’m waaaay behind with comments on that blog – think of my badness on this blog and multiply it by ten over there. Yesterday another new follower left the very same message on the same post, but I noticed this second message swiftly vanish from the screen – it had been swept up into spam.

This arose my curiosity, so I looked into the links behind the commenters. They appear to be from WordPress bloggers, both blogs starting in June this year, and both blogging about a mixed bag of topics. I don’t mind mixed topics; some folk blog about what interests them and have a blog specifically for that, and others blog about anything and everything (much like myself), and I don’t mind either. It’s the person behind the blog that interests me (as well as what they write, I hasten to add!) What I noticed about both blogs is that each post of theirs had quite a few links within them.

Links are useful, helpful and can be fun to follow, so I don’t mind them in posts either. I’ve linked to Splodge and Splatter in this post (just sayin’!) which is my arty creative blog, which is building up quite a large portfolio of digital creations (‘though it is meant for any creation, I hasten to add (again!)).

With the two ‘! .’ comments, my spider-sense tingled. With the links in their posts, my spider-sense went off the scale. I may be a little too untrusting here, but I’m not going to be visiting those links. Gut feeling tells me not to. Spider-sense also tells me not to. And if they weren’t enough, the ‘! .’ acts as a warning all by itself.

So there.

This has been a:

Six Word Saturday Blogging Service Announcement.

And a Splodge and Splatter advertisement.
