I am hopeless at counting but this morning out of curiosity I clicked onto Bloglovin to discover that I have 168 followers there. There are another 219 on Blogger, plus quite a lot of lovely peeps who read, and comment, but do not "follow".
I have a reasonable blog list and there are more that I read by clicking on comments on other blogs. Does that make sense it seems a bit convoluted?
Anyhow, I want to thank you all, readers and followers alike. It is good to know that I am not talking to thin air.
I do tend to run on at times, it is in my genes, all my family members like a good old mardle.
I also tend to go off piste, that's because I write as I speak. If something pops into my mind my fingers transfer it to the post. I do have a quick read back on preview in case there are glaring typos.
My mind runs much faster than my fingers and sometimes I miss out the spaces altogether.
I don't chew over each comma or even word, life is too short. I am what I am and have no intention of "putting a face on".
If I cause offence it is completely accidental, I do have strong views and sometimes they bubble up and will not be stilled. A bit like bread with too much yeast.
Talking of bread I better go and check mine, it is having the first proof, I would hate to have it spoil. I make 2 large loaves at a time and when they are cold I slice them and freeze. That lasts us more than a week, unless we have a few "toasty" days. You know what I mean, toast and marmalade for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and a lazy "something on toast" for dinner. We don't do that often but there are days.......usually wet weather days when I am immersed in sewing or knitting.
I do tend to run on about crafting, gardening and food. Mmmm
Possibly because those are the cornerstones of my life.
Boring? Not at all. I am happy in my skin and love my life. Well not the days that are full of cleaning and Ironing, oh how I hate Ironing. I could not wear my clothes unless they were ironed though.
I press every seam when I am sewing and it bothers me not, it is essential for a good finish. I quite enjoy the process. Strange that.
On that note I am off to check the ironing basket, I am almost certain that there are just 4 garments in it. I have some sewing to do later and will sneak the garments in so it becomes a relatively painless task.
I love your blog lol, I love to see what you make, cook and do in the garden so keep on rambling away as it's a sad day for me when you don't post xxReplyDelete
I do miss it on the days when it slips under the radar.Delete
I will do my best,there are weeks when I get so immersed in "stuff" that I skip a few days, but I miss the interaction.ReplyDelete
I too disliked ironing until I got a steam generator iron last summer. I enjoy the pressing as part of the sewing process but the generator is so efficient and generates oodles of steam that I whizz through the normal ironing and get a facemist at the same time.ReplyDelete
I have a super duper iron from the US with little feet that lower themselves when you stand the iron down. I first saw it on the Missouri Star tutorials.Delete
I also love your blog wish I was as talented as you in the knitting and sewing I also miss you when you don't postReplyDelete
Lol! You sound perfectly normal to me!.......Apart from the fact that you have forty eight hours in a day, whereas the rest of us have the normal twenty four!ReplyDelete
48 hrs a day, I wish, if I had to go to work it would be a different matter.Delete
I, too, enjoy your blog. I don't do all that much ironing (jeans for work), but I do iron tablecloths and some shirts and I actually enjoy it. Part of it is I love the scent of freshly ironed things. Weird, I know. Have a fabulous weekend.ReplyDelete
Mmm I know what you mean, that blast of hot cotton and fresh air can be very uplifting.Delete
Pam just remember this is your blog and you say what you want, we will still pop over and read your lovely words.ReplyDelete
Will do, cross my heart. Oh remember the bra adverts?Delete
I too love your blog Pam.ReplyDelete
Ironing is just the worst job ever although I don't mind it when I am sewing something-x-
I think that all crafters are much the same, pressing seams and bits of sewing is completely unrelated to ironing.Delete
Hi Pam, I don't often comment, but always read your blog, I love it. Wish I had a talent for needlework, but it has never happened, yet, I love to see what you are making or creating. Your cooking makes me hungry, but I'm not a great cook either, so I can't re-create your wonderful dishes. You always have something interesting or entertaining to say, so please, just carry on as you are, I would so miss your blogs. Best wishes, TerryReplyDelete
Thank you Terry.Delete
Ironing is something I hold off on doing as long as possible.ReplyDelete
A woman after y own heart. I must admit that if I can get the washing off the line and iron it right away it doesn't seem so tedious.Delete
It's your blog, your life and you can say exactly what you want to and I love reading it!ReplyDelete
Thank you Annabeth, you have such a pretty name.Delete
Pam if we didn't enjoy reading your blog we wouldn't come back for more. In all honesty I look through my mail every morning for your post. I really enjoy them, they're never boring, I do wish I had half your energy lol. Keep them coming. XReplyDelete
Thank you Peg.Delete
Are you originally from Norfolk, because we really enjoy a good mardle hereabouts. Peace and BlessingsReplyDelete
I was born in Buxton and lived there till I married. Some of my family are still there and in a tiny part of me it will always be home.Delete
You know I love you and your blog Pam. You are my inspiration xxReplyDelete
OOh Er missus, my cheeks are burning, NOT those ones, the ones on my face.Delete
Am laughing too now!!Delete
