I’m here, I’m awake. What more do you want?

So here I am blogging again like a good resolutionist, or whatever the word is.  I should probably be doing proper writing but I have decided to re-define blogging as proper writing and therefore work.

Much to my own surprise I’m keeping an old-school diary.  You know with pen and paper and everything.  I have no idea why.  It’s nothing interesting to anyone but me.  It’s barely interesting to me.  It’s just a list of events and notes of things the kids are doing, my continuing struggles to get the boy to sleep in his own damn bed, the latest stupid thing the Social workers have done and what I made for supper.

I’ve also been thinking about change and death and memory.  I don’t have any big conclusions.  I barely have any thoughts.  I may try to put them into a blog when I’m feeling a bit more coherent.  Don’t hold your breath it could be a while.

It’s been far too long since I wrote anything here and I’m told that blogging Resolutions is the thing that all the cool kids are doing this year.  So I thought I’d blow that theory by joining in.

  1. The first resolution, obviously is to blog more, and probably tweet more too.  With the proviso that I’m only going to do it if I actually have something to say.
  2. I sit on my arse too much and therefore I will try to get some exercise at least 3 times a week.
  3. I keep claiming to be a writer so I will finish one of my novels and send it to an agent.
  4. I will be more organised around the house.

And for an encore I will heal the sick, feed the hungry and restore sight to the blind.
