I hope you are sitting down. The shock may be too much.
I am a mere mortal. Yes, you read that right, just flesh and bone like you.
I have signed up for another Marathon on June 1st in Derry. That’s about six weeks away but my training has gone to the dogs since I took up blogging. I have a lot of catching up to do.
I have to get the finger out. I need to get back to running twice a day. That means bed by ten and up at six.
I just realised tonight that I follow 120 blogs! I enjoy the reading but everything else is suffering. Running, writing a bestseller, DIY, gardening, etc and all that with an 8 to 4 job in the middle. I have been burning the candle at both ends.
I overheard two of my neighbours speaking about me, the other day.
“Frankie’s house is practically falling down around him, it needs painted, the lawn is knee high, he has bags under his eyes and he’s getting the beer belly back again.” Said one.
“Yeah, but he is a well read man.”
In truth, I didn’t overhear that but I’ll bet that’s what they think.
I am sure all you bloggers have had to make significant changes also.
My plan is this.
I hope to continue to read as many blogs as I can each evening. But I will only post maybe every second or third day. I hope to incorporate the two or three daily prompts into the single post.
I think the prompts are great practice. Just like running, the more one does it, the easier it gets.
I value any followers or likers or commenters and I will endeavour to hold your attention with my posts. This change of my routine may perhaps go unnoticed to most but I am bringing you up to speed (pun intended) just incase.
One more thing. Windows xp has become obsolete today. My trusty Laptop runs on it. This gave me the excuse to splash out on a new one today. I went for one of those mini laptop/chromebook numbers. Cheap yes, but very versatile, very liebster, and very beautiful, like a certain trucker. It will suit me fine.
It also has a long battery life so I can take it with me to make magic on my lunch break and on long straight stretches of road…ahem.
Thank you for reading,
