Every Day , say something

 

I’ve blogged ( more or less) every day since 2006
It’s a labour of love and strange as it may seem, it’s never been a chore, even on days like today when I’ve finally managed to sit down after a work shift minutes after 9 pm, I never not want to write at least something.
Blogging is a friend I need to say hello to every day 
The Great British Sewing Bee is on the tv, the dogs have been fed and walked and I’m wondering what to chat about.
I want to be urbane and witty and wisecracking tonight, but it just won’t bounce forth and that’s fine ,  
And so I’ve slipped on my fat bastard jogger bottoms , lit the fire and am now watching the 12 talented and rather sweet sewing nerds do their thing, as my feet throb gently like two  hairy and slightly podgy Belisha beacons.
Hey ho.........hey ho

  2. You managed to get to quite witty at the end there. You find it difficult not to.

    You always find something interesting to say!
    Hope you have a cushy footstool to put your feet on or that the couch is long enough so you can put your feet on a pillow-topped arm rest (so your feet are higher than your heart).
    Hope I can find TGBSB on some channel here in the US.
    Rest well!

    Hugs!

    2. Perhaps Dorothy could concentrate on the area between your big toe and second for a feeling of ease x

  5. It looks like we are in for a good Sewing Bee season!

  6. Tired feet and/or body ache calls for Epsom salts and a hot tub although doggy licks sound pretty good too. BTW - you always have something interesting to say. Thank you for blogging as I do look forward to your daily update.

    1. I’m an older man . I don’t bounce back after shifts like I did especially if I’ve been in PPE

  7. I feel just as you do about blogging John - it is an important part of my day. Did you manage to see the picture on page 8 of The Times today - I sent you an e mail.

  9. Your blog is the first thing I read every morning when I open my eyes. I'm usually running late anyway so generally don't comment first thing; but I always read. Your comments set me up for the day one way or another. I'm either smiling, laughing, thinking or otherwise wishing I had a bulldog, cottage and what not....or you inspire me to give something a go like pottery etc. Thanks you make my life more fun.

  11. I have read your blog , every post since 2009, when I began blogging. I look forward to whatever you choose to share. Your efforts are appreciated.

    [I suppose you will say that wasn't the point of this post, sorry....the warm evening scene/ vignette was charming in itself.] [thank god there was no foot licking .]

  12. Your blog is the first one I look at every day. I would really miss if you stopped

  13. I just like the little glimpses of the lives of others. Also, in real life, I am a hopelessly awkward self conscious person. When I write, I'm not.

  14. I too find it a labor of love. I enjoy reading yours. A great escape. If my schedule keeps up, I may have to hang my blog up. Im getting outside interests and interruptions.

    ReplyDelete
  15. And we love reading your thoughts and observations every day!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I feel the same, John. I can't NOT write something every day.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your blog is like a cozy fire to come to.

  18. Peace be with you, always.

  19. I must admit that I have no interest in sewing whatsoever, but I have seen the TV show, and found it fascinating. I believe there's now another similar show about jewellery making. That sounds fun too.

    ReplyDelete
  20. We don't get The Great British Sewing Bee here but I keep hoping they will start showing it. We do get the Bake Off show and I always enjoy it. I hope you get some good rest tonight!

  21. I love reading your blog. Always something interesting. Maybe I'm just nosy! xx

  22. I had to look up Belisha beacons. You have such a way with words.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, I could never take part in a sewing bee. Someone will have sewn a evening gown while I'm still trying to thread the needle.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I never thought I would watch the Sewing Bee, but being stuck in limbo waiting to move I'm finding myself watching everything.
    I can't imagine stopping blogging now and I've only done 8 years so well done you.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yours is my favourite blog. I just like to check in every day. xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've read your blog virtually every day since the day you commented on mine ... and told me I was bad for not wearing a full face of make-up when cleaning out the chickens every morning ;-)

    That's a lot of writing and a lot of reading, but it's always fun isn't it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I marvel at your blogging every day since 2006 when I, too, first started blogging. Your style and content is somewhat than my own. I quite writing for a year intending to make it permanent but then returned. I never want for topics, I just don't always like the obligation as having too many obligations in much of life made it undesirable at times. Now I write only once a week, most recently mentioning 3 topics of the many flitting through my mind.

  28. Keep up the good work young man!

  29. I have been forbidden from watching Sewing Bee until my daughter returns home from Cyprus next month, she wants to watch it with me. It will be hard not to see any spoilers.

  30. Love the sewing bee!! It was obvious that beautiful yellow broderie anglaise dress was going to win - I think the french guy is the one to watch followed by the 21 year old girl! x

  31. Thanks for the comment about my book. I am glad you liked it. Feel free to post that as a review. I wish I never stopped blogging during those last 5 years with Billie. They were not as exciting as the first years but I think life should be recorded.

  32. I wish we could get that show here. We can now get the Great British Baking Show (but I don't think they are current). Put your feet up and relax! -Jenn

    2. I wouldn't mind helping an elderly gentleman to the shops but I would not describe myself as hot -bit chilly today as I've bravely discarded my long Johns x

    3. "helping an elderly gentleman to the shops" is an interesting code I was unaware of, unless of course it just means what it says. Anyway I've got my wife for that (whatever it means). It is a fine idea to use these silly spams as a source of amusement.

  34. I blog every day too and I honestly don't find it that difficult. I just start writing and something always comes forth. It may not be earth-shattering, but it's fun to be creative every day.

  40. I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from dr Ose spirirtual healing spell cure of all kinds of sickness you may have. penis enlargement
    Remember delay in treatment leads to death email him @ {oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com} whatsapp  +234813 648 2342
