Well, the week (and a day) is up and I have returned to the bosom of my blogging-buddies. If Iâ€™m not totally back on top of the world, I am at least approaching the summit. Thank you again for all the emails and lovely comments youâ€™ve left me â€“ itâ€™s always nice to know that there are people around that care.
To cut a long story short, the CC and myself have decided to call it a day. Whilst I know of long-distance relationships that work, in our case it was just too hard and not fair on either of us. So thatâ€™s the whole grizzly story behind why I decided to hide for a week (and a day). Sad, but not end-of-the-world kind of stuff. I am a bit embarrassed at how it knocked me for six actually, but there you are – it happened, it’s over, I went a bit girly and pathetic for a while, but it’s done with now. Time to look to the future and all that rot.
In other news, I hadnâ€™t realised how much time I spent thinking about/working on the blog till I took a rest from it for a week. Even then I was checking for new comments almost compulsively during the day and clearing out the Akismet queue with monotonous regularity (what is it about Bright Meadow that makes spam-bots think it is a perfect target for a certain sort of unsavory porn?). Not posting meant I wasnâ€™t getting new comments, and I hadnâ€™t realised how much I enjoyed checking to see what had been added overnight till there wasnâ€™t anything to check 🙁 (Hint, hint, Cas needs cheering up so get commenting! 😉 )
So, back to the blogging with a vengeance. I’ve got lots of lovely posts lined up, more installments of the Bright Cast, and oodles upon ooooodles*1* of wonderful things that I found on the Web and want to share with you all. Hold on your hats, people!
1. I just love the word ooooodles. Don’t you?
