Well if I needed any further confirmation that the Blogging magic has gone it is in my current situation.
I am angry with my mother. Because my blog is public - and the parents know of its existance I can't post about it here.
What is the point of a blog when you can't write what you want?
So the options are: start up a new one and don't tell any family (it was my bro that let it slip that I had this one)... or stop... or carry on as I am occasionally posting without any personal information or anything meaningful.
I don't know which I'll choose.
For now - I will be away for a few weeks and I will post on my return, perhaps.
Au revoir x
