"Aren't you going to write a blog today" says Hubby. He lists a few of the things that I should have written about by now.
"Well maybe," I say. I have got quite few other things to do.
"Oh yes" he says, I know.
Do I see a slight look of disappointment cross his face?
I suddenly realise that there is more to blogging than meets the eye. It's the "entertain" bit of the marriage contract. You know the bit where you say: Love, honour and entertain. It replaced the "obey" bit which, not being a submissive type I didn't do.
I took the entertain clause as an alternative. It's a silent vow of course. Not one the rest of you - or me - know about. But it's there nevertheless.
It is of course school holiday time here in sunny Gloucestershire - well for all but eldest son whose school seems to have decided to run on a different timetable to the rest of Gloucestershire Education Authority. This therefore means that access to the computer at times when I might want to use it, is limited.
Computers need to be used for so many important things: fish feeding ("Are you going to be long on the computer Mummy?" says aged 6, "not too long" I say, "Why", because if we don't feed the fish, they will die!!!")
Added to that is the fact that I do, being holiday time again, have some admin to do for the stage school's that I run (when I can get near the busy computer), otherwise no-one will turn up on Saturday and no fees will be paid this term.
But I HAVE got lots to write about........................ and will soon. I promise. So watch this space!
