Sulking, And The Law Of Its Diminishing Returns.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed me to ask where the hell my blog has got to, and whether it's been subject to a Blogger-related implosion.

It hasn't. For once, the fault is all mine - or, rather, it's my birthday's fault; coupled with the realisation that I have achieved precisely nothing of any value to the human race whatsoever, over the whole of the last year, and despite my (second) best efforts.

Greg says that I am having an existential crisis, but Max says that I have just been sulking about getting old. Both of them may be right - but, anyway, there's only so much navel gazing that a person can do, before the whole thing becomes tediously boring for all concerned.

So, my belated birthday resolution is to pull myself together, think positive, and get a grip. (As well as over-using a host of cliches in the process - anyone would think I'd taken a self-help book out of the library at lunchtime today.)

I probably need to allow a few days to practise my affirmations before they start to work, so I shall be back next week, uncharacteristically dynamic and full of optimism for the coming year - which is when I shall achieve something really noteworthy. I just haven't quite worked out what.


  1. Thank goodness you're back. Thought you might have been served with a super-injunction by someone. The Boss, Vicky or Annoying Ellen were top of my list of suspects. :-)

  2. Hi Molly, hope things sort themselves out for you.

    Most of us don't achieve anything of value to the human race (in the sense that you mean). We just muddle through with our families and our jobs and try to be reasonably decent people. If everyone did that, the world would be a better place. So perhaps it is, in a small way, something of value to the human race.

    Anyway, you contribute more than most. You brighten up my days at the office, and I'm sure many other people's too.

  3. Oh, thank you so much, both of you. And I am pleased to report I have not been served with a super-injunction, or not yet anyway ;-) (Am I even allowed to say "super-injunction"?)

  4. Welcome back, you've been very much missed!

    I hope those people listed on the right who are representing you are trying their best to get you a book deal (for this collection of blogposts) in 3 or 4 years time at the end of this parliament. I for one would buy it, and you would deserve any money you made from it. :)

  5. Hurray! Glad you're back Molly :-)

  6. Oh, thank you SO much, everyone. Am quite overwhelmed. (If only The Boss felt as you do!)

  7. You are keeping us all amused - and out of trouble? That's a great thing.
