Watch Out People!

You know you're completely out of the blogging loop when you log in on blogger and it kindly informs you that you have 261 unmoderated comments. For a mere second I let it go to my head a tiny bit and felt tres popular indeed. Right until I scanned the comments prior to moderation and found each and every one to be completely identical, all offering me Viagra.

Viagra? Are you kidding me? I have 3 kids, the smallest of which it appears failed to read our family sleeping policy prior to arrival in chez Siswick and is killing me slowly, mostly a brain cell at a time. I think I'm likely down to approximately 12 remaining right now.

I need a pill to keep me awake in the morning and another to put me to sleep at night preferably for at least 8 gloriously solid hours. Viagra I can live without, it is surplus to requirements here.

But is this what the blogosphere has come to in my absence? Spam comments? Uncool.

It was a humbling moment when I came to the realisation that if I neglected one of my kids as badly as I have neglected my lovely blog these last 12 months or so social services would've intervened long, long ago. Surely my blog is as worthy of my love as my offspring?

So I have used up all my paltry excuses for not blogging:

I'm pregnant and tired-check.

I just had a baby and am even more tired-check.

I fell over because I was so tired and fractured my shoulder-check.

I can hardly string a sentence together due to combined tiredness from pregnancy, having a baby, fracturing my shoulder and having to contend with dear sweet beautiful Libby whose single goal in life is to ensure I never get a good nights sleep-check.

No more excuses people, I'm back on the blog.

And I mean it!

That is my only New Year Resolution.

Welcome back! I look forward to reading your posts in the New Year. My cousin lives in England and forwarded your URL - I enjoy reading about a mom's life in another country.

Well I am so glad you are back! You've been missed. :) I am with you about the no sleep thing....our number three has joined that club, therefore automatically grandfathering me into it as well. Awesome.

Glad to see you around. Hope you have a wonderful new year!!

And as part of your being-back-into-blogging you should probly put up pictures of your third child. She's most likely feeling blog rejected at this point:)

Oh Goody! I've been feeling like crap lately and could sure use some brilliant humor! Welcome Back!!!

Claire said...

Sleep. It's such a beautiful thing... :(

AMY said...

So glad you are back! Maybe you'll motivate me to get on the computer more...

Sorry to hear Libby is a good sleeper. Perhaps she is more the normal infant and your boys were abnormally good sleepers? :)

Welcome back woman. And, happy new year!

The best way to ward off comment spam is to put in the word verification thingy. I too got comment spam awhile back, and they were telling me to buy a backhoe or some other kind of heavy duty construction equipment..... LOL!

So glad to get caught up on your blog- I am glad you came by, b/c I had been missing you on my blogroll. Your precious nocturnal daughter is a doll! And I hear you loud and clear on the sleep deprivation. Viagra? No thank you very much!
