A good title for a post about anything, but will it be interesting? I can write what I think you might like to read, that will only be correct for a small percentage of readers. Do you think about how to reach out to more bloggers or are we just satisfied with the readers we have? I am amazed at the varied posts that I read and find so many interesting, funny and well written, I guess we all have our own little percentage of readers and I am truly grateful for everyone of them for reading this blog. I can be having a very bad day but if I see I have another follower it lifts me up instantly. I do sometimes feel that my post’s are not interesting or catchy so will spend hours thinking of something else but seem to always come back to my original post.
Peaches is still following me about in case I disappear again and seems to want to sit on the very bit of paper I want to read and then sulks when I turf her off.
My eldest granddaughter will be 16 in December and today she has gone for her first interview for an after school, weekend job at Sports Direct. She told me that she will be at her school Academy till she is about 20 and she does not have to wear a uniform when she goes back in September but it does have to be black with a jacket so very workplace orientated. If she then goes to university she could be in education till about 25, will all these qualifications guarantee a job, no but she will at least stand a better chance than if she had none.
My daughter goes back to work in September after taking 16 years off to raise 4 children, the youngest being 5 but at least Mum will be working in the same school he goes too, so not too much of a change for him. I will then be on sick days duty so I hope they are all healthy during term time!
I feel the next few months are going to be a challenge for all of us, I want to get my book written but seem to have many stumbling blocks with health and family. I am not going to put myself under pressure though, if it is not completed then I will just carry on next year. I never feel it is good enough so keep writing the same bits over again, are you ever satisfied that it is correct? I am having a holiday the end of September to Greece with my friend her husband and family so I am very geared up to write lots out there in the sun with maybe a Mojhito or two.
I will be a grandmother again in December and then January, taking the total to 8. I do feel that is enough lol considering I was an only child they do not take after me but their Dad was one of 7. It is lovely being part of a big family and all living in the same town and what with all their cousins too there is always someone to see or things to go and do. All made even better by the wonderful weather we are having here in the south coast, my eldest grandson appears to always be down the beach in the sea with all his friends. Last week he did not want to go camping with the family, that’s when you realise they are growing up and getting minds of their own. He stayed with his cousin and had a lovely long weekend.
I saw my consultant about my shoulder this week and had another steroid injection, the last one did give me a bit more movement but not less pain so we are trying once again. I cannot have anymore so then it will be surgery if I go down that route, or do you just accept and live with it. I have found my body has adjusted to not using my left arm for lifting or anything, it is hard sometimes for things though.
I was amazed after coming back from the writers holiday in Wales that I had actually lost 4lb, not sure how that happened as it felt like we were always eating as it was all inclusive. Why is it so much harder to lose weight the older you get?
I am enjoying reading Penny’s book The Doll Makers and got so engrossed in it last night that I stayed reading till one o clock! No wonder I feel so tired and useless today. Have a lovely Wednesday what ever you are doing x
