Daily Prompt: Share the Love

Tell us about another blogger who has influenced your own online journey.

Hmm… a difficult one, given that I have been around the blogging block more times than than most.

I think that I must point the finger at Nalsa, of Backwards Lion (and others), if only because it was he who pointed me in the direction of LiveJournal back in the days when I was hand coding my online diary in HTML and Notepad. Thus were born:

and the awful habit of setting up and segregating blogs by subject area. There have been more than several blogs since then, mostly, but quite a few ones too.

Also known as Mike, Nalsa is a good read, if you should ever come across him. He’s creative and busy, witty and funny, and terribly terribly interested – a techno-guru, into photography (and very good he is at that too), cakes and tea, baking, bangs and flashes and all kinds of good stuff. Frighteningly intelligent, and awfully nice, I count him one of my favourite people in the whole wide world. I am happy to say that he’s not just electrons on a screen, but a personal friend. Which reminds me, he’s quite fond of beer too…

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020
