Did my absence make your heart grow fonder…

…i doubt it.

Having returned once more to blogging this very day,  I have  discovered that during my cyber absence, some people chose to bump me off their blogrolls/google readers etc.

Had i not such thick skin (actually i’m pretty thick everywhere but we won’t go into that!) I may have been hurt, but I have more weighty matters to grapple with in my life than whether I bored, offfended or  annoyed this or that person who visits the blog.

So, sorry if this seems a tad  reactionary but…TOUGH CRAP if you don’t like that i didn’t blog for a couple of weeks. Boo bloody hoo.

Disclaimer>>>I don’t say this to regular, long time readers who actually give a damn about me and mine!!!

Sometimes life is hard to be lived and can only be existed or ‘got through’….these past few months and especially recent weeks have been confusing and distressing and I haven’t wanted to blog morose posts but nor have i been in the mood for chatty, lighthearted posts either, so i felt it best to stay away.

To those who continued to leave comments, both here and on my private page, and to those who emailed me or contacted me via Facebook to leave messages of support and concern, may God reward your kindness to me.

I’m going to make the herculean effort to post more regularly henceforth(and not because my readers are dwindling – the site stats remain the same – it’s just time for me to blog again, that’s all).  I have things to blog, I’ve just not wanted to blog again, until now. Hope all is well in your world.  Thank you for your prayers.

    Real life always comes before blogging. Sometimes the inspiration or the time simply isn’t there. I have not been as regular about blogging as you, and even I have had to take several months off now and again just because well… life is life. *hugs*

    I did a little cheer of hurrah when I saw you have posted something!!! 😉
    Listen, real life comes first, then you jot it down if and when you wish. I think just about everyone understands that, and if they don’t, like you hinted at: big bloody whoop. 😉
    Prayers for your well being and God bless you! You are loved by this family from over the pond!!
