“Beware the barrenness of a busy life”.
I have been, and indeed still am, stupidly busy for a month or so – as witnessed by the emergence of a barren wasteland on this blog.
“This too shall pass”*
I will hopefully be back to writing semi-regularly in a year or so (maybe earlier if I ever get my act together and actually finish writing this essay ;)).
* both quotes found here – thank you 🙂

Good luck with the essay – hope it’s not really a year.
Thank you 🙂 I hope so too!!!
Why not do a regular brief update on your other activities?
I have two problems with your otherwise genius suggestion:
a) I can’t cope with regular, I don’t think I’m wired up properly for routines… and
b) I have almost* no time for ‘other activities’ including sleeping and showering and housework. It’s self-inflicted obviously, but hopefully short term 🙂
Besides, I need to save my ‘material’ for when I have time to write it out properly 🙂
P.S. Your dahlia (?) is a stunner 🙂
P.P.S would you want to read them if I wrote them?
*luckily only ‘almost’ 😉
Yes, dahlia, took it myself so thanks. I know what you mean about regular, I have the same problem. I always like reading people thinking aloud, so yes to PPS. I’m about to post a stream od consciousness thing, as it happens …
Mine (my dahlias) look similar-but-different to yours, so I wasn’t sure if they’re a different variety or a different plant altogether….
I took this photo in a local park, which has a 500 yard dahlia bed with many different varieties.
500 yards?!! Just dahlias? Wow! 🙂 that’s some park! 🙂 Did you take any pictures of the whole bed?
I have 6m (so 7 1/2 yds) of my own, they share with lilies (incl. the pink one on my profile) and a couple of others though.
Yours sounds just enough for a varied splash … didn’t bother to photo the whole thing as couldn’t really do it justice.
It has been far too long since I came to read your blog. So today I am going to binge read 😀

You’re brave! 🙂 luckily I haven’t written much recently…. 😉
I’ve enjoyed my catch up on your wit and fun posts. I enjoy you so much.
🙂 🙂 🙂 (I don’t know how to make blushing smilies on here..) Thank you 🙂 🙂 🙂
A year? A YEAR?! They don’t make emoticons sad enough. 🙁 You will be sorely missed, Jesska. Believe it.
*hugs* I don’t think I’d survive an actual year away from WordPress (does that make me an addict?)…
I (kinda, sorta, maybe) finished my baby-essay last night and sent it to the lecturer. Then I remembered that I need page numbers and am wondering how to sneak them in so that he doesn’t notice (not possible – he notices EVERYthing). *breathes* I have the presentation this evening and hopefully a couple of nights where I can sleep properly (not-sleeping was due to lack of time (or bad-planning on my part), not lack of wanting), then I will more hopefully start feeling human again and able to write coherent sentences! 🙂 The next hurdle is/are the pre-Christmas exams. I should already be revising for them, because we are constantly bombarded with new things to know, but I’ve been so swamped with the baby-essay that I’ve been not-thinking about anything else much.. at some point there’s going to be a big-essay, which I think will be easier (you may have noticed my inability to get to the point 😉 Introduce a page limit and I am a wreck!), but also incredibly time-eating. *breathes* So yes. I will be around, but inconsistently….
Hope you can feel the appreciation despite my sleep-deprived rambling.. I would miss you too if you disappeared.. (*sprinkles glitter*)
