Facebook has been around for what? Two, Three, Five years?  I don't know.  Nor can I remember much now what it was like before Facebook.  It's like..email has been around for what 10-15 years?  And can anyone remember what we did before email?  Same goes for the Internet.  What did we do before the www?

Anyway, I don't know what your thoughts are about Facebook?  Mine tend to change from one month to the next.  At the moment, I'm really rather tired of it.  Do not see the appeal.  Do not see why everyone needs to be in everyone's business, nor do I really know why you think I'm interested in what you ate 5 minutes ago, or that you have a doctors appointment. 

What I do like is the photo's and the ability to catch up with people I haven't spoken to in ages.  But then, that's what email is there for too. 

Then there is twitter.  I've got a twitter account. Not that I use it much.  If ever.  That to me is more pointless than Facebook.  I'm sorry but I really don't get it. 

Ask me again, in a month or so from now how i feel about Facebook.  Chances are I may think its great again, or I'm loving some game or something I've discovered on there.  Or I'm bored with the usual 'stuff' I do online and have reverted back to FB. 

People watch you like a hawk.  If i don't post something on my profile page for a few days I get people texting or emailing me asking me if everything is ok.  I promise you, if I've not posted on Facebook for a while. it doesn't mean something is wrong. I just don't have anything worthwhile to say.  If something is wrong with me, wrong enough to be concerned about, you will know.

What are your thoughts about it?  Tell me. 



So the cool thing about blogging...I don't know if its this blog in particular, or all blogs, is that you can track hits and the whereabouts of those hits to your page.  So far, I've had an incredible 15 page views (not mine coz I've had mine discounted) and all the hits are from South Africa and New Zealand...so, a wild guess here would be that Mommykins and either brother or sis-in-law  in NZ have had a peek. 
My point is, if you've come here and if you've been interested, please do 'follow' the blog.  Only coz I think that would be really cool and I would feel ever so popular! And coz I would know who you are too :)

I debated for a few days about whether I was going to advertise this page or not.  Then asked myself what was the point in having a blog and not sharing it with anyone.  I'm not exactly shouting it from the rooftops...nor will I...at least not for now, but if you have happened across this page, it's because you were looking at my info page on Facebook.  That thought in itself makes me feel somewhat happy coz someone out there was bothered enough to look. 

Oh these little things we need to make us feel better about ourselves...


Friday, 1 April 2011


So its April 1st.  I remember back (way back) when this date used to cause me slight giddiness when thinking of the tricks I could play on my friends.  I also remember once how a school mate of mine, offered me a sandwich during lunch break which had plastic as the filling.  I wonder if she still remembers that?

Anyway, April 1st 2011 and I spent the day at home.  Friday day off, always a good thing, but the day was another grey one - with intermittent showers - and I didn't do anything special with it.  My daughter is the one in a giddy mood today. Probably because she and her boyfriend are celebrating their 1st anniversary.  Scary that, how times flies.

I have no words of profoundness tonight.  I'll be heading off soon to my usual evening hang out (those that know me well will know what that is) but just wanted to write something as it has been a few days.  Perhaps I shouldn't be putting pressure on myself to write something all the time (I do think about it a lot since I set this up) but rather just write when I have something important to say.  Yes, perhaps I will do that.

Anyway, Happy April Fools day :)
