All is still well. VERY well.

...... but I'm just wondering if I dare return to blogland after leaving it so suddenly?

Do I give you the reason(s) why I left, what occurred during that year and why I'm thinking about returning?

That in spite of the unforeseen hurts and bitter disappointment, saw my small family of Love Chunks, Sapphire, Milly the dog and myself have the happiest year ever?







An unknown and certainly un-chart-busting pop song that I ran to had a very telling lyric: "May my enemies live long, so they can see me progress."

Like a sequin on a stripper's g-string, I've got nothing to hide.......

Hello to you too, Sabine. I think I will tell you more!

Sir M Stacks - no studying, but some real (paid) work that I could NOT say no to and am so very glad that I didn't...

Hi Kath

Blogging means never having to say you're sorry.

As a frequent absentee myself, I would say that now wouldn't I?

Parlez! Whatever you want to say, whenever you want to say it - it's the bloggers' code too.

Great to see you in port.

So good to see you back Kath! We've all missed your blog. It's been obvious you've been having a great time and have been happy which is wonderful of course but we've still missed the blog!

Fenstar de Luxe said...

ooh your Jedward hair is amazing <3

You tell whatever you want, I'm just happy to see your words on my screen once again :)

Kath Lockett said...

Three years next week, Pandora!

Thanks Lad - there's a story behind that.... will need to gee myself up to write it

Alexia thank you - I'll be visiting your blog too for a catch up

Health/w/Happiness - Sapphire turned 15 yesterday.... such an intelligent, kind and thoughtful girl. I'm still the immature one!

Thanks, Pants. Do you still have comments disabled or can we now leave a remark or two?

JackieK, I found that Facebook was a much quicker way when time was limited....

Fernstar, I was referred to as 'Jedward's Mother' which hurt my feelings terribly!

Rubye Jack said...

Well, I would say welcome back but since I'm a first time visitor I'm looking forward to your posts.

Kay Tee Em said...

Welcome back! Very glad to have your funny take on life back on my iPad.

Kath Lockett said...

Thanks Rubye - don't be stranger, y'hear?

Ms Tee Em - thank you! xo

Helen Smart said...

Lovely to see you blogging again Kath!!

Kath Lockett said...

Thank you Ms Smart - I can't get access to 'Blogger on the cast iron balcony' these days - both the desktop and laptop tell me that's infected by malware...?

Vanessa said...

I also have been absent from both posting and reading blogs for 18 months now. I was thinking of you last week and so I checked out your blog last night. What a surprise to see you have been absent, but then returned to run a marathon!!! I am in awe. I entered my first ever fun runs this year. Completed just three and the longest was 12km. Looking forward to keeping in touch through your blog. Very curious to find out why the absence....
