Blogger's block

After some fierce words from the Capt'n, I figured I'd better put fingers to keyboard. It's got to be a blogger's block of some sort - perhaps a new phrase for the lexicon. There's certainly been a fair bit running on inside my head, which I could have made a few comments on. Dang it, I couldn't even find the time to do so on Blog Action Day. I've even been out on the water since the last entry, but that went by the by.

Mostly, it's been block thrown in with little time. Work's a bit busy at the moment (what's new), with our upcoming annual meeting in Orlando in a fortnight and various other projects on the boil. And, of course, there's this wee 5.5-month-old at home that seems to take up an inordinate amount of time. Go figure. I have him for an hour in the morning, after getting up at 0530 (waaay pre-sparrow fart) to take the dog for a four-mile run, so FliesWithKiwiBird can catch up on some sleep; and then as soon as I get home from the office around 5pm, he's mine until we share bath, books and bed (I now know Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Goodnight Moon off by heart). During the weekends, I have him pretty much most of the time, to give FliesWithKiwiBird a much needed break. And frankly, the wee one doesn't care two hoots whether I have a daily blog commitment or not. But above all that, he's just so darn-gone-gorgeous!

So there you go. There are my excuses. At least the world keeps turning without me. Phew.

Now now... fierce words??... maybe a little "k"nudge (american for applying pressure to a kiwi)

Ah, the exact words were "Start writing in that blog of yours or else!!!"

Well if you're going to quote me...For goodness sake!!

Sounds like a decent sorta nudge to me, especially as it worked!

If he hadn't said it, I would have...eventually...maybe...I guess. I know from where you come, however. Our grandson has only been here 36 hours and we are cross eyed with fatigue. But are we ever happy. I'd say you have your priorities right.

And, as quickly as she reappeared.....:)
