Can it really be 5 months since my last post? Several of my followers and some of my non blogging family and friends have said that they missed me which was most gratifying - thank you all.
Where have I been? Well my laptop threw a wobbly and had to go back to the shop still under guarantee. When I got it back I had lost all my photos (yes I know I probably should have put them on a stick or disk) and everything had been set up quite differently to how it had been before so I was back to square one as I was here. So as you can imagine I was pretty fed up with the whole idea of computers and blogging and the laptop spend a further few weeks in the cupboard!. Then by the time I had got it working again I discovered I couldn't access my blog dashboard on the laptop only on Mr M's desktop computer. Again I thought blow this for a game of soldiers I shan't bother! But today I finally discovered how to get into my blog on the laptop and here I am turning up like the proverbial bad penny.
During all these months my blogging mojo seemed to disappear and I felt I had nothing new to say anyway so gave it all a bit of a miss. I did write the occasional blog post in my head but it never actually got onto the blog! Whilst I wasn't using the computer I didn't take many photos either as had nothing to download them onto. It's been quite relaxing actually but maybe the time is ripe for me to return to the fold?
So what has happened during my time in the wilderness? Well Mr M and I went to London for a few days back at the beginning of May and had a lovely time visiting some of the many gardens to be found in London either on foot or travelling by bus - sadly no photos of this trip since they were loaded onto the computer when it all went pear-shaped.
Then later that month I did another bus Pass, Boots and Backpack trip this time staying 4 nights in Totness and going out by bus and on foot each day. I do have the pics from that trip, some of which I have used to illustrate this post, and will post about it later perhaps along with some other ideas which have been floating round in my brain.. Otherwise it has been life as usual with days here and there and getting together with friends and so on. We don't seem to have done much proper walking this summer for some reason - must try harder especially with autumn just around the corner.
