Failure ……… Day 17 of 100



Well ….so much for my 100 Day Challenge !

It only lasted 16 consecutive  days … and its been 8 days since I posted anything !

I can only apologise , but its just not good enough, is it ?


This is the first time that I have failed in a self-imposed challenge and I feel rather sad and annoyed with myself. I should have tried harder and not given in so easily.

I blame it on my illness … I have parathyroid disease and a flare-up of the symptoms left me completely exhausted;  totally wiped out and depressed.  Like a really bad bout of ME or CFS.

Oh gosh, I know that there are so many who are far worse off  ….people who accomplish amazing things despite terrible handicaps. But, although I usually manage to cope, somehow this time I felt overwhelmed and so the symptoms, when coupled with my day-to-day duties,  meant that something had to suffer …….and my blog drew the short straw !

So ….until I have another scan and then, finally, an operation to sort out the offending parathyroid ….I will revise my challenge.

I still intend to post 100 various articles; stories; reviews; etc.,  but not necessarily on 100 CONSECUTIVE days.


Incidentally, those of you who know me either in-real-life; on Twitter; or Facebook will be aware that I finally found my  ‘SPECIAL PUPPY …….

I am privileged to share my life with this adorable little dog ………………….




………………… Isn’t she fabulous ?

And rest assured ….there will be more about her in future posts …… with PHOTOS !

    Don’t let a challenge worry you Rosie, be your own blogging boss. Betty is beautiful and she doesn’t have the management/diet of an Afghan.
