I should begin with the stock phrase that all rubbish bloggers like me trot out after an absence of posting...
"I'm sorry I haven't blogged for ages, but....."
Well I'm sorry I haven't blogged for ages but at least I left you with a brilliant post on the front page - gerbils eating pancakes anyone?
And I'm sorry I haven't blogged for ages but I did get really busy because I kind of went on the trip of a lifetime to the US to see American Girl and American Boy get married.
And I'm sorry I haven't blogged for ages but then work did a work explosion right in my face as soon as I got back and I couldn't even think about blogging.
And I'm sorry I haven't blogged for ages but then it was my birthday on Friday and I was too busy...just...having a birthday.
And then I thought that I really should blog again but not knowing where to start meant that I was a little bit paralysed.
So I thought I'd write a test post.
And you see, I'm so out of practice that instead of putting "write" in that last sentence I put "right". Jeeeeez.
I thought I test post might help me get back into the swing of things. That and a list.
And now I can't even remember how to finish a blog post.
