WIP Update: Who Let The Blogger Gremlins Out?

I think it was me. I tempted fate by mentioning Gremlins in my Wednesday post and giving my Sunday 15th WIP post the title 'Normal Services Will Be Suspended'. I apologise.

Wasn't yesterday fun? I logged on early morning to finish writing my Friday Five post and found I couldn't access my blog account. When I returned home from work late evening I found the problem was fixed but I was too tired to finish my post. So, I've skipped straight to be my Sunday WIP post, which you are getting today. Confused? I am.


I'm taking a break from blogging next week. Mr. G and I are on holiday from 5pm today and have some major household changes going on next week. On Wednesday and Thursday, we are having new carpets going down throughout the entire flat. Before that can happen we need to finish ripping out all the old carpet, screw down all the loose floorboards, treat the lounge floorboards for carpet moths (don't ask; it's an old building), finish painting the lounge and hallway ceilings, and finally pack everything away for the carpet layers. Gosh. Even typing this is making me feel exhausted.

Friday will be a day off for good behaviour. On Saturday we have my sister-in-law's 40th birthday party and I think it will be one of those get-home-in-the-early-hours parties. So, I may be a little worse for wear on Sunday. In the interests of readability, I promise to either write my Sunday post before the party or at least after several cups of coffee Sunday morning.

Have a great week blogging friends.

  4. Hi,

    It wasn't your doing Ellie, it was L'Aussie and I, (we think) who upset the gods of Blogoland. We were all set to launch RFW http://fridaynightwriters.blogspot.com but forgot it was Friday 13th and of course our theme "Dire Moment" dire indeed. ;)

  7. Blogger is so beyond naughty!!! So beyond!!! I don't mind the need for maintenance etc but did they really have to remove all the comments I left on bloggie friends' blogs since Wednesday?!??! Was that necessary?!?! And they were rare, witty, amusing and highly intellegent comments too. LOL!!! Ahem.

    HAVE A WONDERFUL blogging break Ellie!!!! Enjoy you week!!! Happy birthday to your sister in law and hope to see pics of your new carpet!!!
    :-)

    Take care

  16. And here I thought I was the one that crashed blogger.

    Oh I don't envy you. I have had to rip up old carpet and cart it away. It is amazing and disgusting what you find under it.***Wear a dust Mask*** The party sounds fun though.
