Procrastinating Forevah

So yeah, procrastinating is still my thing (obviously). In fact, I've been procrastinating from posting on my procrastination blog (another obviously). The problem is, even when I do post on my procrastinating blog, it is only because I am doing so in order to procrastinate from doing other stuff.

Makes sense, right?

Also rambling. (See above paragraph). Still do that, too. (I really want to put 'obviously' in parenthesis again, but that would be repetitive).

So. Procrastinating and rambling. They really do go hand in hand. Ask me a question, and I will invariably go around the houses (as well as catch a bus, travel to the city centre, and pop to the cinema) before you get an answer (which will most likely not even be a straight answer, more like a bendy one).

Hmm. Parenthesis are clearly also a 'thing' with me (as is placing words inside inverted commas). Apparently I have lots of 'things'. Sadly, one of them is not sticking to regular blog updates.

Anywho, life is not much changed for me. I still work in the same place, I still wonder how I will stretch my wages to last a month, and I still have vague plans to get back to writing 'properly' again. So why have I decided to randomly blog today? Well... I think it's mostly because I have encouraged my daughter to blog as a distraction for her (she suffers poor mental health). And I would be a poor example to her if I said 'do as I said' rather than 'do as I do'. 

So I do. Or I did. Or... well, you know what I mean. Will try to add a quick post weekly, though I will not formally commit, as that really doesn't mean anything to a procrastinating rambler like myself.
In the meantime, here is a picture of myself with my daughter taken from last year (I am the hobbit, she is the gorgeous one), and a picture of my youngest boy (because he is clearly so adorable that he needs no excuse to have his picture shared).

Man, I really need to get a grip on my parenthesis thingy...

Long time, No see...

Dear blogosphere, it has been over three years since my last confession blog, and really, there's not a lot I can say about that except, well.. I am the Princess of Procrastination.

Long story short(ish), life happened. And when I say 'life', I quite literally mean it. 'Life' is currently two years and three months old, and is as mischievous as toddlers can be. Master Oliver Harry Smith was a late addition to my family, and is a thoroughly spoiled little man, but we loves him, precious, yes we do.

Sadly, babies/toddlers + full-time job + procrastination tendencies = no blogging from yours truly. Though it has to be said, I wasn't much for keeping faithfully up to date on here anyway. *shifty*

It's been a funny few years; not only did I have a new kiddie winkle, but just prior to that little surprise I became immersed in fanfiction writing for several months (so I can honestly say that I did actually do some writing, even if it wasn't for a 'real' book, or posts for this neglected blog). I actually wrote a 50k fanfiction in six weeks. As in, a finished 50k fanfiction. Go me! And several shorter length stories and drabbles too. This, I should point out, is more a testament to my obsessive nature when it comes to nerdy fandoms, than to any new found non-procrastinating habits. Maybe one day I can apply my OCD geekyness to writing another novel.

On the subject of geeks, I also geeked out majorly over the phenomenon that is Game of Thrones (several nerdgasms were had, I kid you not).But I'm pretty sure I'm not alone there. I would say that I should make a new tag for GoT, but let's be honest here, no-one is holding their breath for more Princessy blog posts (least of all me... I know myself too well).

So this is just a 'hello' post, really. And probably a 'is anyone going to actually read this' post. And also a 'blimey, I remembered my login details AND how to compose a post' post.

I'm hoping to leave you with a picture of my Ollie-Pop as an end to this , but in all fairness, this could turn into an 'oops, I forgot how to add a picture to my blog post' post. We shall see...

Blimey, I think it worked" *faints*

P is for Pants

When something is making you frown
And things are getting you down
There's no need for rants
Just say 'its all pants!'
(And now I can't think of a noun).

Actually, DON'T ask me... Original Image

O is for Oops

I generally fall over fresh air
It's something that I do with flair
Alone or in groups
I usually say 'oops'
As a klutz, I am beyond compare!

This is me!!! *nods* Original Image

N is for Nothing

Midnight is just minutes away
And I find I have nothing to say
I probably won't boast
About this pants post
But as long as I blog, it's okay!!

Nothing, nada, zilch... Original image.

M is for Minions

According to certain opinions
In order to rule my dominions
I'll need more than me
To run them smoothly
So I'll have to find me some minions!

This is what I need!! Original image.

L is for LOL

The silliest of things can amuse
Your sense of control you can lose
But laughing out loud
Is always allowed
It's a tonic to chase away blues!
