Another blogging gap, another excuse

It's only been a few weeks since I last logged into Blogger and so many changes... such a cluttered-looking screen when you login, rather ugly and so beige-brown. And I tried to leave a comment on Sandancer's detective blog and got a weird error message saying someone else was performing the same action (I don't think so.)

Oh well, I'll fiddle around today and see how it goes.

It's a bit like bringing in a sick note to say why you've been off for a while, but my reason for lengthy absence was hideous work loads, both in job and the PhD. Stressful and time-consuming, but I've got a couple of weeks leave now, so can catch up with being human and get on with my academic work with slightly less juggling of responsibilities. Feel a bit bad admitting this, but I didn't even remember I had a blog while I was caught up with work, but then I started thinking of the blogs I read as real people instead of anonymous things on the internet so I did miss it in the end. Thanks for popping over and leaving the odd comment btw.

Will potter around a bit now and be back later.

No need for apologies :) Nice to see you back here...

Yep, I do like the comparison to bringing in a sick note! Thanks for starting my day off with a smile.

Thank you both!! I'll be over to catch up with your blogs soon, when I've recovered from my recent all-nighter writing sessions. An early night is my plan for today though!!

I hope you don't mean that my blog is so unpopular that no one else could possibly be leaving a comment! (Although it would be more or less true!).

I don't like the new look blogger control panel either. It claims to be easier to navigate but it looks so cluttered.

Sanddancer, lol but I'm embarrassed I didn't notice it could be read in an alternative way - so sorry!!

Don't think of it as unpopular btw, but very specialist and for a discerning readership, rather than appealing to the general populus!

OK, I guess I'm more tired than I thought! I had to go back and check on what the two of you were talking about. For the record, I didn't read it that way at all.

Now I'm off to check out your blog sanddancer.
