I have an excuse for messing things up. My step-son invited me along on his stag do, even though I’m a grumpy old so-send-so. He had a good time, enjoyed himself with good friends, and didn’t end up in a mail sack on the midnight train to Edinburgh. But, what it has done is messed up my striving towards my 1000th post.
Having reached No. 996 on Thursday, that meant no. 1000 would be due on Monday 22nd May. I really did want to keep the sequence going. The plan was to do a quick post on Friday (no. 997) a scheduled post on Saturday (rubbish post, but it did happen no. 998, and I was going to do no 999 tonight. I messed it up by missing Fridays post, I ran out of time.
So, with Fridays post missing, and tonight’s post the wrong way round, I can’t in all honesty claim 1000 tomorrow. So that will be Tuesday. Then of course we have another target approaching; post number 1095. Now if I had been really good, and had properly done a post every day, then 1095 would have been three years. It’s obviously not three years, but not far off. Still a number to be proud of.
Pretty much back to normal tomorrow..resuming with no. 999.
