I think I have a healthy interest in Facebook but I do try to make a conscious effort not to spend too much time on it when the girls are at home. Tis a pity this doesn’t work both ways! Try gaining their attention when they are on the pc or my bloody phone – usually watching The Shaytards – wtf is that all about “baby tard” “princess tard” what a load “shite tard” – I could video a day in my household which would put those “tards” to shame 🙂
Anyway I’m going off on a tangent here!
I read an article recently about a mother who counted how many times her children looked at her whilst they were playing a game together. I can’t recall how many times, but it was a lot. The point she made was, had she had her nose buried in her phone all that time, what kind of message was that sending to her children? Did this give them the impression of disinterest? In my household they would be checking whether I was watching before they whacked each other round the head or nicked each other’s sweets 😃 but you get the picture.
I started kidscrumbsandcrackers at the encouragement and urging of a couple of friends – possibly to stop me blocking up their newsfeed on Facebook when I would post larger than life posts.
The beauty of Facebook is the popping in and out, it usually consists of short interesting posts, a quick like here and there, a few friendly words, a few xxxxx when needed, and a fair few, oh shut the fuck up’s – no one wants to know what the post is about when it’s titled “really fuming right now” if you want to tell us, go ahead – but don’t put “can’t talk about it on here, I’ll mail you privately babe” – if you don’t want to say – don’t put it on bloody Facebook in the first place 😜
So off I toddled to WordPress – with just simply the sole intention of making my own personal on line journal, diary, waffling to myself blog 😀
I read with interest and enthusiasm the Blogging 101 course, attempted to do something with the information it gave me, failed miserably, still have no understanding of what a “whippet” thing is or does – still tagging shit all over the place – incidentally I have no idea where my stuff goes – I don’t see it anywhere else, but somehow, against the odds, some of you have stumbled across my posts 😃 I’ve possibly and inadvertently tagged posts to all your pages without realising 😀 I’ll actually let you into a little secret – I seriously have no idea how I came about my signature orange heading – I accidentally touched something and there it was 😄 I dare not try to change it as it may disappear and so might I!
Thank you to those who have nominated me for blogging awards – I accept with pleasure but have no idea how to put those awards on my blog – but they are proudly displayed on my imaginary blog award shelf – I will eventually get around to polishing them – when I get around to polishing the dust off my polish 😜
Anyway like I said this was my aim of blogging. I had absolutely no idea I would come across such brilliant reading material, not just quick little posts but pages of truly thought provoking, educational, inspiring and bloody hilarious blogs – in a nutshell – book worm heaven for me 😃
One of my favourite places in the world is the library – which is ironic seeing as I’m banned from all my local libraries – not due to wanton abuse of books, just simply because on every visit I cannot contain myself and end up getting out the maximum 16 books to read in a week – I read a lot but can never read them all in allotted time so they are constantly late back, I can no longer afford the bank loan to pay the library fines – so the bastards have banned me 😳 this is like banning an alcoholic from the pub – they affectively broke my heart 💔 until now ………
So this post is to say a big thank you to anyone who has found me and commented on something I have written, I feel genuinely honoured. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of reading your blogs, communicating with people all over the world, learning about new cultures, customs, ideas and just all round brilliant reading material. Thank you for becoming my new “Library”
Ps. Please don’t fine me 😳
