I’ve Lost The Love

Recently I have fallen out of love with blogging. There was a time when I couldn’t wait to blog and had a billion of ideas but after 3 ½ years I feel burnt out and fed up of the whole thing.

 I fed up with the games and politics of it all, bloggers and blogging networks trying to outdo each other, bitching and the constant begging for freebies, that’s not what blogging is about.

I know I have been very lucky and have been able to make a living from blogging and yes I get great opportunities but I have worked hard for that, I don’t beg for things if I really want something I buy it or save for it (novel I know).

Blogging has gotten so nasty recently and there is no need for it at all, if you can’t say something nice shut the fuck up. Even worse are the ones that stir and stick their nose in where it’s not wanted, they love a bit of drama especially when it’s someone else.

So I find myself falling out of love with the one thing I had that was for ‘me’, this blog is so neglected but I think it will stay that way for a while I can’t think of anything else to write about.  I think personal blogging is over for me for the time being.

So I sticking to my blogging motto Live First, Blog Last.

Just Wait for the F*cking Green Man

There is one thing that annoys me more than anything and that’s people not waiting for the green man at crossings especially when I have BG with me.

From a very young age I have told BG we must wait for the green man, people gave me strange looks telling this to a newborn baby but at 3 years old she know to wait for the green man. She even tells people off that doesn't wait and warns them that they will go on the naughty list and get no presents!

There are two situations when it really, really annoys me.

  1. When BG is with at a crossing, I am trying to teach my child road safety and you just go and run across the road undermining everything I am trying to teach her. WAIT FOR THE GREEN MAN!
  2. Parents running across the road with their children and not waiting for the green man. What on earth are you teaching your children??? I don’t care how clear the road looks, cars whizz around corners all of the time. Do you want your child to get hurt or even killed? WAIT FOR THE GREEN MAN

You are probably wondering what set this rant off. On my way home from town today I was at the crossing (waiting for the green man) and two mothers with young children in buggies decided not to wait and were narrowly missed being hit by a car that was speeding around the corner.
