If you search for the word ‘busy’ on my blog, you get six pages of results. That’s not good. I don’t want to be remembered for spending my life telling the world how busy I was. I once had someone whinge at me for not blogging enough back in the early days and I almost gave up on blogging because I didn’t want it to become a guilt trip. I soon decided that I would blog on my own terms and figured no one wanted to read lots of apologies as to why I hadn’t blogged so I wouldn’t open my posts with excuses or apologies, but try to say something interesting each time.
Saying I’m busy a lot is almost as bad – it’s making excuses in a different way. We’re all busy in our own ways and I’m sure I would soon be bored with a life of leisure. I would love the chance to test that theory sometime, but at the risk of repeating my oft lamented cry, life has got even more manic than usual. Nothing critical, but both sides of the family need us a fair bit at the moment, and keeping up with my side involves some travelling as none of them live locally. I drew a picture in my journal a few years ago of me juggling – I’ve always felt that running a business is like juggling, but suddenly I’m expected to do it while learning to ride a unicycle at the same time!
Anyway, today I am just popping in to say I have put another little bag of de-stashed bits and pieces together for a lucky winner. I just pulled up the last couple of weeks of comments and have picked out a random winner and the lucky name drawn is … Sue Stone who left a comment on July 27th. Congratulations Sue, we have your address already, so your prize will go out in the post tomorrow.
You never know when the random stash pixie will strike …
