Poor Blogger

I've been a poor specimen of a blogger over the last few days.
Not replying to my comments seem send some fellow writers into a state of near hysterical apoplexy, such is the transgression from blogging etiquette.
But we are on holiday for a week, so I shall endeavour to catch up with things on an ad hoc basic as the Prof and I enjoy the Kent coast.
So, what happens to the animals when we are away I hear you ask?
Well we have a cottage sitter who looks after the house with animal helper Pat overseeing Albert care. Sailor John and Village elder Islwyn are sharing field duties with teenage boffin Cameron acting as back up and very shortly I shall be taking Mary and William to their Kennels .
Yesterday George, in his usual jaunty way, bounced into my sister's house for his week of pampering and the fat diva, after my facebook plea for a local homely bed and breakfast has settled down quite nicely thank you very much in the home of a work friend .
This was her facebook photo from last night


How loyalties can shift once the man of the house is cooking roast beef!

  1. A lot for you to organise on the home front but now sit back & relax xx

  2. It's only because you say that you will 'try very hard to reply to all of them' that people keep complaining. If you took that promise down, nobody would care! Anyway, you really need a secretary these days, with your workload.

  3. I'd sit on my wife's feet if she cooked roast beef for me.

    1. Why do bloody comments turn up repeated; is it my delirious trimmings?

  6. When you say "Kent coast" are you speaking with a South African accent?

  7. It's called 'cupboard love' John.

    Enjoy the Kent coast and the heat wave that is destined to hit it this week.

  12. Don't worry yourself over replies. I'm sure your regulars understand. You post so often I'm amazed you have time for any replies anyhow!

    Enjoy your holiday!

  13. I've been an intermittent blogger myself of late, it's all or nothing with me. Well if I'm dealing with gluts of homegrown stuff I can hardly deal with gluts of posts as well ... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it ;-)

    Have a wonderful time, getting everyone organised for a week away is like a military operation, especially with your lot all off to different holiday homes. I'm glad you got someone to look after Winnie.

  14. Just have a wonderful time! I want a picture of the two of you in front of your beach hut. Please?

  17. I think it's called 'cupboard love'.

  18. You have far too many followers to be able to reply to all of them - even half of them or fewer. It's just not humanly possible, and we realise that - or some of us do. I'm 'lucky' to have just a faithful few, a number I can cope with and with whom it would be rude not to at least acknowledge each individual comment. But not so the likes of you and some others I follow.

  19. This is when you need to buy a place on the Coast so the pups can go with you on holiday. simples.
    love the photo, it brought back memories of my own Pup and his sitting on my feet whenever I stood still long enough.
    A Standard Poodle rump is not as soft as a Bulldog rump though.

  20. Just a To All Who Commented thank you or response is fine when you get so many comments.
    This is not a problem I have though :)

  21. Going away takes such organization and hope this is a restful, wonderful time for you and the prof.

  22. Mmmmmm...roast beef!

    I don't always reply to my blog comments. Is it bad form? I didn't even know that!

    1. it depends on how many comments you receive. I like responding to my commentors; my way of thinking is - if they took the time to read and comment, the least I can do is respond.

    1. Me too. Both ours follow me constantly, so are wherever I am. One sits on my foot or right behind me, so that if I step on her, she gives me an injured look. When I'm cooking I have to step over them constantly.

  29. She's sat there like the bisto kid sniffing all that beefy goodness. I think she'll be expecting a Sunday roast every week now. You'd better not let the old girl down.

  30. Ahh Winnie ! They sure as hell better be homemade yorkies with that.

  31. I've been terrible at replying lately as well.

  32. I hope you have a lovely break. I hope to visit Kent next time I visit UK. My mother, as a child, was a border at Port Regis School for delicate girls in Kent.

  33. Have a lovely holiday! And don't worry about blogging or replies or anything else. A blog is personal and should be something you enjoy. When it turns to work, it's time to do something differently.

    LOVE the shot of Winnie and her new friend the roast beef provider :)

  34. Holidays are meant to be enjoyed and Winnie is obviously making the most of hers. Hope yours is equally as pleasant. Bugger replies when life gets too busy especially when time away needs more organisation than a Donald Trump campaign.

  35. PS My guess is Winnie did get some of that roast beef.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Have a fabulous holiday!

    Winnie is besotted, but only by the beef. ;-)
