Hi… I’m bewildered, befuddled, confused, confuddled. Yes a new word, a new word to explain and understand my prickly pickle
Lovely lady, J Blaide over a week ago you nominated me for the sunshine blogger award.
I was blown away, tickled pink, over the moon. Yes delightfully delighted. I set about my response in my mind. Life is crazy busy for me right now.
I moved that weekend, so it was a few days before I actually put pen to paper, or more to the point, finger to iPad.
I wrote, I answered my questions, I banged out 11 more question for my new nominations. I was on a roll.
All good. What’s the problem? Me. I’m the problem.
Firstly I think it is fairly obvious I’m new to WordPress. So my puzzlement begins. “Oh dear” I do not know many people on WordPress. 🤪 This is going to be a tad harder than first thought. That’s okay, that’s okay, I’ve got this!
Secondly a few days of spasmodic speed reading of blogs from people I do not know. How did I find these people? I searched a word and browsed what came up.
Okay I’m taking you back a few steps now. One of J Blaides questions in the sunshine blog nominations was,” do you view or read”. My answer was I view and look for a hook to grab me and then I devour.
JBlaide for the record I devoured your site. Awesome, love, funny, entertaining and fabulous. Congratulations wonderful lady. Very clever, you are. ❤️
Forward a few steps again, back to my spasmodic readings of unknown bloggers. Between my crazy week with work and planning a 3 week holiday, I read, searched, I loved.
All good, “ again, what’s her problem you ask”. Well if you can imagine my screwed up crying face. 😩😝😫😖
I can’t bloody workout how to put my nominated names into my blog.
Seriously I have been trying since last Friday. I can get the full site address name in, on checking other nominees, they only have the name. Grrrr. What am I doing wrong? I research. I learn about the LINK. Fabulous I’m on it. NUP.
I did get one up, yippee. However, on making my second link it replaced the first link. What the? 🤪 NO. NO. NO. NO. I had to walk away.
Now I will tell you the funniest part. You won’t believe me. No you won’t!
Do you know what I did when I left school? Computer science. Yes! I was in IT for many years. Are you laughing? I am. 😂😂😂😂
I pride myself on being very computer literate. So what has happened to me? Sadly, I may know this answer, I’m turning into my mum.. yep laughing again. 🤣
So please excuse my ignorance JBlaide. I so wanted to respond and be part of my new little WordPress world. If everyone, my fellow computer literate bloggers, can please bear with me, I will improve with practice or maybe after a few lessons. Perhaps from my kids. Hmmmm. It’s official, I have become my Mum. Asking my kids to help me. Hahha. I love it. Luckily she is one of the most adored and admirable people I have ever met, even if she can’t use a computer. I may possibly be quiet for a few weeks. Ask me why? I’m off on an adventure. 3 weeks of fun, sunshine& travel. I truly doubt I’ll get much time to write while I’m away but I will have plenty to write on my return. However, I will be reading all your blogs as my bedtime reading. I look forward to it.
Love and thanks

Oh my goodness, thank you so much for the kind and loving words! You literally just made my day and I swear I’m smiling so bright my hair might even be a shade lighter! You are awesome!!
To boot, this is written so well and did indeed make me laugh!! Its funny how technology waits for no one and eventually we all fall off the boat sometimes! My two year old manages to do things with my phone that baffle me. How in the world did she do the things?!? (The answer is she was literally born into technology so it’s intuitive while I struggle to even power this thing on or off LOL).
Second, no need to apologize because we all have to learn sometime! 😁😁 I’m jealous you get an adventure for three whole weeks, I cannot wait to hear about it!! Take your time, enjoy, and I am so excited to read all your posts when you get back!!
