Oh dear, I really am a bad blogger, not one new post in over two weeks (this originally said over a week, but it's taken me so long to getting around to finishing this post that it's now two weeks)! I can put this down to a number of other things that have been taking up my time some of them mean that blogging really does have to take second place, but the others just seemed to have edged it out. The latter I am a little annoyed with myself, because as I have said before I actually like writing things here. It's never going to be a blog award winner, and there are many, many far better blogs than mine (hint: have a look in the side-bar under regular reads), but I enjoy it.
So what are those multitude of things, well actually I could probably get the list down to about four with out trying hard, and split that equally between the higher priority than blogging and the lower/equal priority to blogging. The former are work and looking after / supporting my GF who is still not well. Work is the 9 to 5, and then being tired in the evenings. Supporting my GF is much more complex as there are many things that she is simply not well enough or able to do, and obviously these are why they are more important than sitting down to right a post.
The less important are the garden and gaming. I've written several posts about the garden, and as GTA IV came out this week I could write lots of posts about that (but other blogs are there well ahead of me so I won't). The last couple of days however given the fact that it's a bank holiday weekend have meant gardening. The work started last weekend, with clearing an area of patio to plant some wild grasses and flowers for insect habitat has been going on a-pace. The ground has had to be lowered a bit, and this has meant multiple trips to the tip with bags of mainly builders rubble, as this seems to what was under the paving stones. Fortunately there is enough soil there too, so at least we won't have to bring in loads of soil to finish the job off.
Anyway I think suffice to say, I am a crap blogger, and if I am ever to improve I really must write more often, which I will try to do, but I make no promises. In the meantime however, I am alive, just time stressed!
