My blogging is even more sporadic than normal at the moment, it seems. I logged in to find I had 1,446 comments in my Spam folder. Eek! Usually I run my eye over them in case a genuine comment has been relegated but I’m afraid this was impossible. I emptied it and WordPress had a minor wobble and then righted itself (thankfully the comment moderation is so good that I’m not worried too much about missing something!).
It felt a bit like some of the stacks of paper/leaflets/assorted bits in some of my office boxes, which I am trying desperately to sort. Alas, I am not as good at WordPress at sorting spam from non-spam. Although I do find I’m stricter at this end of moving than I was at packing up. Where am I going to put this? Oh, well, the recycling bin would do. A slight exaggeration. But when do I ever read my old Gardeners’ World magazines (for example)?
Anyway, my life is currently on filter mode. Plus I am doing lots of Magnet editing – which is also a kind of filtering, finding the right image for the right piece, the right words for the title etc.
I would love to be able to just lean back and be absorbed into Advent and Christmas. Alas, I can’t just yet. Nonetheless, the town’s lights are switched on Friday, and there’s a barbecue in front of the church. Will definitely be there, hatted, scarfed and gloved. I think I just invented some new verbs.
Never mind, eh?
