You are in your own love story…….. You just might not have gotten to the good bit yet.


My first blog

Isn’t this just amazing! This whole Blog phenomena. The ability to share thoughts and ideas with anyone with an internet connection. Hmmm, they might need a laptop too I guess; or a tablet; or smartphone; or a library card so they can pop to the local library and use the internet; or even a friend that has one of the above.

I have not blogged before, not really written a journal or diary and never put myself or any ideas out there for public scrutiny. I could be considered a touch self-conscious. Suffering from anxiety at meeting new people, attending functions, or offering up ideas is not uncommon for me. Oh, but it’s all part of my charm. (really I should put a bit more in here about me – but was a little bit distracted – see below note – that happened about here, well just before I wrote *new people)

Do I have to explain that I can be a little sarcastic, paranoid, self detracting, cynical and jumpity or do I hope that you work out. Not sure really. I’ll just see how I go.

Wow – just quickly – I just clicked on the ‘Distraction Free Writing’ button as I was blogging, now I am so distracted. I think I am so used to visual stimulus all over the place on the laptop I have no idea what I am doing without it all. Next WordPress will be telling me to go sit in a quite room, free from the distractions of the TV showing me amazing houses, the dogs barking, the washing machine spinning and oh, that’s the cat at the door. Madness I tell you, absolute madness. How do people think in such a ‘distraction free’ setting. Let me just switch back now before I completely forget what I am doing, I’ll go let the cat in and then I am back.

This blog is not particularly about anything. I have no false expectations that this will be read by more than a handful of people.  I have no aspiration to become ‘blogger of the century’ and I don’t hold any vision to change the world with the power of my words (although, I am sure I had that dream once when I was young and optimistic)

I have been told I can babble – but normally only do so to people who know me really well and I feel comfortable with. Or on the other hand, I can babble when very nervous, and that will be to the poor sod that just happened upon me and asked a question that only needed a yes or no answer. This blog is let the useless information in my head out , to babble at will, and it may ease the pain of my nearest and dearest’s ears.

I would like to put down interesting tid bits of information that I come across from time to time too. I just learnt the yesterday the bumblebee can sting more than once as its stinger is not barbed. That is information that I did not know, and yet would be really useful if I lived in a country that had lots of aggressive bumblebees.

Another interesting fact – I have named my Blog after the bumblebee.

Things that I would like to deliberate on in the future will range from the use of strange words in the **corporate world to the ability of shoe shopping to solve the problems of my world for the day.

I am looking forward to writing more and am hopeful you will look forward to reading.

Enjoy your night. 🙂

**I just looked for a synonym for discuss and the thesaurus website came up with ‘Groupthink’. Groupthink? Now that belongs in the corporate world and I am so taking it to the office with me on Monday
