Farewell Dimzad

I mentioned something about life throwing a curveball, it ended up being far worse than that.  Dimzad (my husband) was diagnosed with late stage cancer on the 20th December.  He had shown no symptoms until then and was only 45.  The hospital did their best but it was too advanced and he passed on the…

happy new year

well, this was going to be the year when I posted regularly (again… i know, i still believe that at some point in time i will) but life has thrown a curveball and I have no idea what the year will bring.  So i can’t promise that or even aim for it. I will be…

what I’m doing…

Just a quick update of what I’m up to Playing: mostly Lord of the Rings Online.  Thoroughly enjoying the new update, though gearing up seems unnecessarily confusing.  I’ve recently remembered that although I finished the Legacy of the Dragonborn (and finished the two Skyrim DLCs for the first time), I didn’t complete either of the…

absent…

just a quick note to say that I’m not around until 3rd Aug – I will be catching up with all things Blaugust related then.  I do have 3 posts scheduled though 😉

blaugust reborn!

I’ve taken part in Blaugust before and always found it fun and useful.  It has a new relaxed form this year, billed as a summer festival of blogging.  It is incorporating the Newbie Blogger Initiative to provide support, encouragement and community to new bloggers as well aiming to re-energise and re-connect for current bloggers.

blogroll etc

I’m going to be tidying up the Blogroll and WordPress Reader to be more up to date.  I will be hiding or unfollowing any sites which haven’t posted in over 6 months or so. If I’m not following you* or linking to you, please let me know in the comments – I’m more than happy…

2018

well happy new year everyone!  I’ve decided to try and resurrect the blog, I did enjoy the G+ experiment and will continue to share my posts there but I’m missing the blog / having everything in one place. I’m intending to do much the same as before but I’m also going to write a series…

blog to g+ experiment

as is probably patently obvious, I’ve really fallen by the wayside with regular blogging.  I think I’m mostly out of the habit rather than anything else.  I’ve decided though I’m going to try something different out over the summer – I’m going to try hmm, sort of micro blogging I guess by posting to G+…

#blaugust 2016

I almost didn’t sign up to this, but then I read Belghast’s post about it being the new relaxed style of blaugusting and I thought it’s silly not to really 🙂 I’m aiming to post Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with the aim of making this a long term schedule (please stop laughing at the back…
