When you feel neglected, think of the female salmon, who lays 3,000,000 eggs but no one remembers her on Mother’s Day

31 August 2006

I’ve been a neglectful blogger lately. I’ve thrown up the odd post, but for the past two weeks I haven’t really been commenting as much as I should. I have however been reading all the blogs, I”m subbed through google reader, and I’ve been starring all the entries I feel I should go back and comment on. Only I don’t think I’ll get around to it.

We are still getting IT and phonelines sorted at work, though I suppose I could go online at home and catch up thataways, but I was at the kino with NM on Tues, last night I had to ring home for de mudders birthday and then got distracted by those two cleaning wans, whatsherface and Agi[1] as they investigated the cleanliness of Easling Hospital. Verdict: People in general are walking germ factories, and no one washes their hands properly.

But what I was thinking was that this is a modern western hospital. So a fairly high standard of cleanliness, all things considered. What would it be like if they swabbed a hospital in a “developing[2] country”

Back to my point, I’ve a feeling that I won’t be visiting all my starred blogs, so if I haven’t left a comment on anyones most recent postings, I’d just like to say, Hello, how are you. etc etc etc.

Although I have been thinking that I’d like to join in with Carl’s reading challenge. Will wait til after this weekend[3] to decide though. If I remember.

    Would love to have you join the reading challenge Fence but don't feel pressured to do it, or to comment on the blogs. It should always be something you enjoy doing, not something you feel you have to do out of obligation. We all have busy times and blogging has to take a back seat in the priority bus. Hope things settle down for you soon!

    Don't worry about it. I'm pretty much the same what with moving flat and the Fringe and everything it's as much as I can do to keep up to date on everyone without stopping to comment. I'm feeling very guilty and neglectful so I'm going to make a big effort to get round everyone next week.

    Well, I'm hardly one to judge on that these days, huh…
    Wish your mum a happy birthday, and tell her that she shouldn't feel guilty for taking precedence over us… ;)

    I'm going to disagree with everyone here and HATE YOU for not blogging and for spending time at the cinema with me instead of blogging and all the other stuff.

    Guess what arrived in the post! I'll give you a clue – once you've found it, there'll be no place you can be. Hee hee.
