My husband asked me what the purpose of doing it was and now I am not really sure other than I like a challenge! I did collate some facts from the exercise such as; the most professional looking blogs with advertisements seemed to have the least comments left on them, there are some extremely talented artists out there, the least useful (well, to me for the purpose of this exercise) were blogs that didn't have lists that linked to others in their side bar, 'highly polished blogs' those that don't use the standard blogger templates (like me!) tend to follow other highly polished designer blogs, some outstandingly good blogs get few comments and some blogs don't allow comments. Phew!
The second thing I quit today was the sewing group that I had joined at the local library. It takes place once every three weeks. The point of it was to take along your sewing machine and sit and chat and sew with like minded people doing their own projects helping and encouraging one another. Each time I have attended I have been the first one there. Another woman turns up half an hour after it is supposed to start and then she leaves after about one hour into a three hour session to go to work or attend other appointments leaving me as the sole person at the 'group'! The whole point of joining was for it to be a 'SOCIAL' occasion and it has been anything but! It seems now that my entire 'social' life is carried out via a computer. No-one seems to have the time of day for me in the 'real' World sense.
As well as quitting two things today, I started something 2 weeks ago but may quit that again too! I started back at the vineyard for a grape harvesting session as they were short on volunteers. It was a very strange experience after not being there for getting on a year. A couple of people were happy to see me return and I expect the majority didn't even know that I had left. It is quite a sobering thought to know how dispensable we really are.
Well, I can feel myself going down that pitiful route of loneliness, unworthiness and insignificance again so I better quit (not again!) while ahead. On a happier front, I am still sorting out the craft room and can't wait for it to be a usable space again and not just a storage room. I have found lino cutting materials and all sorts of paper crafting sets that I had forgotten about. I have turned more balls of wool into new - see photo above - and original post here, and been generally getting on top of the mammoth task or sorting out my 'stuff'.
I have lots of practical things to get on with so I will say cheerio for now but leave you with a quote that I think applies to me today.
When everything is lonely I can be my best friend.
