ooh, hello......remember me?......


It's been over a year since my last post, and only now I feel   
I'd like to dip my toe into the wonderful world of blogging 
again.




Why stop?......

A lot has happened in the past year.

- a little domestic hiccup

- a bit of blogging nastiness

- teenage snowdrops in far flung places

- a long distance house refurbish project

- but you know, I just lost my blogging oomph. I had nothing at all to say.  And the strange thing was I couldn't/wouldn't look at other blogs either.



Why start again?......

A very wet and windy weekend in Majorca,  with nothing but a computer and a slightly grumpy Mr Snowdrop for company.
I had another look at my little old blog - and liked a lot of what I had posted.  One thing led to another, and I revisited the blogs of old favourites - the bottom of the ironing basket , loo boos and shoes , home , Tone on Tone , and many, many more.  That's a lot of reading, but it was very wet!!


I just stopped 'cold turkey' and probably broke all sorts of blogging etiquette - and I bet blogging technology has moved on a lot - but now I'd like to start again. Mistakes and all !!

I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends, and discovering a whole years worth of new ones.

I've missed you guys......

I hope you all have a lovely evening,

  1. Oh Liz - I can SO relate to this!!! In fact, you've just written the post that I've been attempting to write for the past three months. Apart from the teens in far flung places, i have almost identical reasons for not posting - and as you know, once one month turns into two, then five, then...well, it all seems a bit presumptuous to start blogging again out of the blue in the hope that people are still willing to hear what one has to say...! I'm SO delighted that you have started again - perhaps it will give me the kick I need to start again. Lord knows I miss it! Good luck, and I will be following avidly.
    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Paula,
      I am thrilled to hear from you. Your blog has been sorely missed, and you are one of the people I have thought of often during the past year - wondering if you had started blogging again.
      I know that if you do take the plunge, your old blogging friends will be very happy to see you again.
      Keep in touch,
      Lizx

  3. Liz, I am so glad you are back! I had the exact same thing happen to me two years ago (for some of the same reasons and I too could not even read other blogs) and then about a year ago I stumbled onto something I wanted to share and the inspiration and interest came back. I post much less frequently now, once or twice and month, but I am enjoying it again - as I know you will too. And I am looking forward to that.
    All best wishes,
    Phyllis

    1. Hi Phyllis, thank you for your kind words
      This was certainly a strange time - particularly not wanting to keep up with people who had been part of my daily life.
      I'm looking forward to starting again - and catching up with you and your lovely blog.
      Kindest regards,
      Lizx

  10. Liz! What a wonderful surprise it was to "see" you pop by the blog! It's been ages!! How are you? I can totally relate to the life hiccups. I haven't been able to blog as frequently because once again, the hubby is deployed and has been for about 6 months. Hopefully, he'll be home soon. Nice to have you back my friend! xx
