*this is taken from an episode of AbFab where Patsy slaps Eddie across the face, its one of my favourite lines.
Yesterday’s blog post provoked a response from a very dear friend of mine and she even wrote a blog post dedicated to telling me what a giant numpty I was, to get my head out from up my behind and just do what makes me happy. She didn’t use those words exactly but that’s what she meant, she just said it in a much nicer way, some people might think she was harsh but I much prefer straight talking to pussy footing.
Now I don’t know if it’s because the year has started off a bit shaky and is knocking me slightly off balance or if I am still adjusting to having found something that I enjoy so much. Either way, she gave me a kick when I so deserved and needed it.
It is an indication of my current state of mind, that when I read her post all I saw was – you can’t stitch! – in reality she did not say this, I adore Joysze and her stitching and it’s because of her that I met Keiley and she is an amazing stitcher!
I would say I am a really positive person, yet when it comes to me, like most I am the harshest critic. I see only the negative. I even see stuff that isn’t there! I do wonder why this is the case and how I got to be like this but I do tend to hold on to the wrong things, let me tell you.
When I was 19 a friend said I was self-righteous after I said something about drug abuse and for the next 4 years I reminded myself of this characteristic and tried not to say anything that would be considered self-righteous again. When I was 23 I had finally decided that it wasn’t the worst thing in the world to be self-righteous about things, after all I didn’t swear, I rarely drank, I didn’t smoke, I never took drugs and I didn’t sleep around…surely I had earned the right to be a little uppity about it! It wasn’t easy being all those things and in all honesty…and who cares if it sounds self-righteous…I am pretty much the same now. But the point I am trying to make is that was one throw away remark that someone made that I carried around with me for 4 years and even now 17 years (gulp!) later I remember the moment as if it was yesterday! This is pretty shocking as I can hardly remember yesterday.
So what is the point of this blog post…its to apologise to you all for my random rantiness for ridiculous reasons that occurred yesterday, and also to say that I shall continue to be me and I shall continue with this blog, I may merge my crafty one into its own page on this blog, I shall post about whatever whenever and I shall keep personal stuff just between us! I think its best I only promote stories and any reviews and save all the rants, travel stories, and the time I… tales for the regular readers.
I also wanted to send best wishes, thanks, apologies (again) and to make an announcement too!
Firstly, I have a friend who is also a reader of this blog who was recently unwell and had us all worried when he vanished from the Twittersphere, but he is slowly on the mend and we are very happy – I am dancing! – and hope he makes a speedy recovery. So Hap…Get Well Soon from The Suddenly Kate Show and followers, your comments keep me going :D
|Get Well Soon, Hap :D|
Secondly, a special thanks to Lynn, Keiley and Hap for being very supportive and putting up with my nonsense.
Thirdly, I was intending to post a music review before the new year and it has been way laid. It is written but I need to use my main computer at home to upload the images (IE 7 does not like blogger) and with the stress of the new year start it has been one thing that has kept being put off till tomorrow and I feel like the person is avoiding talking to me because he doesn’t want to mention the post and appear to be nagging when he really isn’t. I get that. I totally understand and it will be posted tomorrow, and I know this because…
Last thing on my list is that I have tomorrow off work to settle my new kitten into its new home! I do like cats, and the passing of our family cat just before Christmas has left a giant cat shaped hole in it. Today he/she arrives so I am going to be off work on Friday. I shall be posting my music review and writing the next instalment of Girls Best Friend!, amongst the other things that I need to do.
So, watch out for kitten photo’s sometime this weekend or tonight if you are on Twitter and follow me @tsk_show.
