Home Thoughts Weekly: Preview Edition

A funny thing happened in the Sick Bay last night. Lying there in my winceyette nightie with the candy-striped sheets pulled over my head I was pretty sure that Duck Flu, Local Paper Blight and Chronic Blogging Fatigue had seen me off for good.

A peep at your shiny new blogs hadn’t helped; everyone had gone up a grade! Liberated from the Mothership, Purplecooers were celebrating with stylish presentation, fabulous photos and writing with a newfound sense of freedom. Was I even capable of setting up a blog or would I be relegated to the bottom stream forever?

Then, to my complete surprise, I got the urge to lift my head from the Pillow of Doom, edge a tentative pedicured foot to the cold floor and feel my way over to the computer. Within a couple of minutes of experimental tapping I, too, was the proud owner of a brand new blog, proving that there is indeed, life beyond the Green Duck.

Alas, I will not be boarding at Purplecoo. The day job has suffered badly and Tom is also showing signs of neglect. So I’ll be a day pupil, popping in to cheer you all on. Home Thoughts is therefore going weekly, except when not!

My recovery should be further assisted by the arrival of the Post Natal Girls and we will be paying lavish homage to Purplecoo’s motto, children, chocolate and wine!

Hurrah and hwyl fawr!


Good to see you over this side! If you ever decide to be a boarder we can shift another bed intot eh dorm!

Matron has just popped in to tell you not to worry, the chat room has gone down temporarily owing to an error on Google which is preventing us cleaning out the fosses to make room for new posts!

You can still blog away merrily here on your own page, and to leave comments on all the others.

Glad you made it over - I am sure we will all slow down a bit - its all this excitement of a new toy.
I must remember that I had a life before this even it was just musings and mowings. Today has been crazy with this press thingy.
See you when you can then - love mousie

Matron is visiting again with an IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

The chat-room is experiencing problems with overloading which we think is causing it to be marked as SPAM, which is in effect locking us all out :-

So in the mean time: each day please look out for the post called ANNOUNCE NEW BLOGS HERE and put your announcements in as comments on that post.

This will still leave space for one personal post per person which we can all comment on.

This is purely a temporary measure, we are keen to get the chatroom back to the weird and wonderful way it was going before - we are looking into various options at the moment (by the way, have you noticed that option is an anagram of potion) - WesterWitch! put down that cauldron!

Hey, a fellow Nick Drake fan! I am going to check out Clocks - sounds like my kind of thing.
Thank you SO much for reading the prologue of the book.....
And would be intrigued to know more about your liminality research/interest.... I touched on it when I was doing art therapy/Jungian therapy work - and so nearly went to a conference on it but sadly didn't......I'd love to know more. jx
PS - I'm a day girl too......sadly.... though I know I will miss out on the midnight feasts.
