169. You in your small corner…

This weekend, I have been trying to blog about the refugee crisis.  Indeed, I actually finished a blog this morning, but when I read it back it was just too trite and banal for something so horribly complex and difficult.  So I deleted it.

And blogging about anything else at the moment feels like rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic.

Shall we talk about The Archers instead?

Or I could tell you about trying to stem the flow of blood from Marigold’s nose this afternoon, while we waited for the Welfare Officer.

Me: (whilst pinching nose) Have you had nose bleeds before?

Marigold: No, but I was trying to pick out a really big piece of snot…

Aren’t you glad I shared that?  Have a good week.

By the way, if you’re the person from the Netherlands who read 130 of my blogs over the past three days, can I say hello and congratulate you on your remarkably good taste.  I’d love to know how you stumbled across me.  Proost!

  1. Hi Jellywoman, I’m sorry to disappoint you about your Dutch readers but I actually live in London, I just happened to be there on holiday and couldn’t sleep. I can’t remember how I found your blog, somebody must have a link to it…

    1. Good to hear from you – I’m sorry it took so many blogs to send you to sleep! Warmest regards.
