Have you ever noticed when one thing goes wrong, it has a knock on effect?

I’ve spent the last week trying to work out why everything seems to be pushing on one another.  And I had the epiphany about three hours ago that the problem is I’m trying to do too much.

It’s my own fault.  I get enthusiastic about an idea and dive in with both feet.  But the stupid thing is, if I’m not careful, I end up in a situation where I’ve got too much on my plate and can’t keep up.

Case in point.  I have 25 posts all queued up and under ‘pending review’ on my blog docket.  I didn’t think for one minute to change the settings that allowed them to post direct to live when doing it from my phone so for the last 25 days I’ve been happily posting my blogs, and it’s only now that I’ve discovered that my one a day isn’t showing up!
The next part in the chain, getting it in my email so I can post it, hasn’t been happening either, but because I’m so busy I haven’t noticed.
Well, today, I’m putting it right.  There should be 15 historical posts and another 10 queued for the next month, and that’s it resolved.
Bear with me 🙂

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...

The two pink lines we didn’t want… #mondayblogs #rungirlrun

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
