Happy Weekend! (Random fun)

Hi everyone! How are you? Doing well, I hope. I'm sorry I've been away for so long. It's positively criminal to treat a blog this way. I do apologize.

That being said, I've been teeming with things I've been wanting to share with you, but every time I sit down to write up something, 1) life interferes (usually in the form of my children) or 2) I remember that I'm still underwater with work (and will probably continue to be 'til the end of next week) and all of my energy and momentum drain away.

So, I've decided that I'm just going to start posting bits and pieces, even if there isn't a lot of context for them. Just because I've been wanting to share with you, and if I keep waiting, they'll all slip through the sieve of my mind and never see the light of day again. For instance, this infographic (I love infographics. They're usually so cleverly designed and generally have good information/insights. Some of them are just rubbish - all flash, no substance - but even those are interesting to look at, just for their structure. Okay, sorry - see? All these thoughts. Teeming! Spilling out all over the post. It's like blogger-Tourette's!) - I know it really has nothing to do with the sort of content we usually post - but it made me 1) chuckle and 2) groan inwardly (wow, are you Brits passive-aggressive or what?) and I'll think twice when one of you tells me something I've done is "quite good."


Okay, so I'm going to go work on another post now. (One with pretty clothes in it!) It's all about the small wins, sometimes, right? 



  1. teehee.  That's pretty good. And I know what you mean- I have a bunch of observations I'd like to share, but there's usually some element missing, and by the time I may have found it the momentum is gone and it no longer seems topical.  I guess that's what 'self-discipline' and 'planning' is about.  sigh.

  2. Haha, I feel like I'm going to be a little outflanked here! I have actually used ALL of those, though. We're not real good with direct hostility, so this is how we deal!
    By the way, I hope you and Kathryn will enter my new Style It! feature. Might encourage me to forgive your absence ;)

  3. love it. My dad is Scottish, and that's pretty spot on. I heard "not bad" a lot growing up.

  4. Hehe, really true, thanx 4 sharing...:)

  5. Hmmm...that's not bad Carol, not bad at all...carry on...
