… well it is December tomorrow.
Last night I cut myself. Not in an Eamo kind of way. In a manner which only I could. I was lying in bed, when I felt a sharp pain in my thumb. I turned the bedside lamp on, to find that there was a cut on my thumb. There wasn’t lots of blood, but my flesh had been torn and was separating whenever I moved my hand. It made me feel more sick than pained. I don’t know how I obtained the wound. It looks like a papercut, but there was no paper in sight. Clearly, this was caused by one of two things… I must have either cut myself on the duvet, or I have stigmata.
Luckily I have some plasters, which fixed my torn skin together. Unluckily, the plasters are rubbish. Every time I wash my hands – which, as people who know me will testify, is A LOT, throughout the day – the plaster falls off. They are not waterproof in the slightest. I may as well wrap some sellotape around my thumb. It would be a lot cheaper and probably more effective. I hope my skin heals overnight (and I don’t cut myself again), so I can leave the plasters at home tomorrow, as I’m fast running out of the things!
Blogging can be very addictive. I should know. I started this blog in 2004 – over 11 years ago. Unfortunately, while it can be a very addictive hobby, it’s also something which is very easy to neglect. A bit like a house plant or a dog. The longer the abandonment lasts, the more the blog/plant/dog deteriorates, making it less of an incentive to invest time in the thing.
Don’t worry. Firstly, I don’t own a dog (although I do own a rather poorly looking houseplant). Also, I’m not going to stop blogging. I’ll really, really try to get back to blogging the usual rubbish stories and tired jokes. Hurray.
On this website, you’ll find me blogging (almost) daily about everyday life, living in Bath, working with computers, and the occasional bit of football stuff thrown in.
