Yes, I've had my blog critiqued and Billy Mac has very nice things to say about it. So...below are the comments, giving me bragging rights...yeah!.
Puss in boots brings us a fantastic blog that reads so naturally and freely you can feel like your a fly on the wall. I started to read her posts and felt like I needed to continue from post to post. One thing that I would add is a site meter (http://www.sitemeter.com/) to see how many fans you have visiting your blog each day. Her most recent post about eating pistachios in bed is a great example of her writing style. I recommend a visit. Great job with the blog and keep up the nice work
Isn't he a nice man, and I've taken his advice and added a site meter, too. Thank you, Billy! So if you want your blog critiqued go the link in my sidebar and send Billy an email. I think it's a wonderful way to get one's blog "out there".
That has been the high spot of my week. I've been bashing the keyboard in the city all week, mainly to get the bulk of the work out of the way so I can start next week without a huge pile of patient charts staring accusingly at me, while my colleague swans off to France and England. Unfortunately, because I haven't yet learnt how to be in two places at once, I had to notify my home job that I wouldn't be available until 08 June. The reply was "aaaarrrrrgh!". It happens every time I have to do a full time stint...for some reason or other, the work at home goes absolutely haywire. So I did six hours for them this morning and I'll do some more tomorrow (if I get up early enough).
The reason why I need to get up early is because I had a bright idea while I was grocery shopping today. I thought I would put on lunch for the family tomorrow for Mother's Day. However, I was not really worried about having to do this because I thought they would have other plans. Oh, I knew they'd pop in, but they have their mothers-in-law to visit as well.
Anyway, I phoned both girls and yes, they'd love to come for lunch tomorrow. So...I've made salads, quiches, fruit salad and tomorrow morning, I'll make a banana cake. We'll also have cold smoked chicken, Turkish bread and strawberry champagne which is sooooo yummy! The grandkids are coming as well, which I was rapt about...I love seeing them. Especially as two of them are moving overseas in two or three months' time.
Another reason why I want to get up really early is to help out a bit with work...eight hundred files downloaded to be done by us by Monday...gulp! Our fingers will be worn down to the elbows at that rate.
I hope you ladies all have a wonderful Mother's Day, whether you are mothers or not. I shall finish with a quote which I rather like.
Avenge yourself...live long enough to be a worry to the kids! Heheheh...
