Have you ever noticed how polite people mostly are?
I find myself doing the same thing sometimes:
Oh really? Is that what you thought?
Hmm, I could see why you might think that.
Oh, you think misogyny is great for a laugh, ha ha.
Well, that’s certainly one way you could interpret that story…
Shoulder pads are coming back in fashion? You don’t say.
Or you could just say,
Which is also satisfying, to the point, and more truthful.
Finally, I seem to have lost my instant Netherlands followers.
They came like a rainbow after a shower.
All bright and shiny and inexplicable but delightful.
Now they have vanished.
Maybe to appear again one day…

Okay, well NaNoWriMo has gone the way of other good ideas that I have had over the years.
There was the exercise bike that ended up being a clothes hanger.
The apple cider vinegar diet that gave me an aversion to salad dressing.
The handkerchief skirted dress that made me look like a harlequin.
The bubble skirt – the less said about that the better.
Hermit crabs as pets. (I can’t talk about that either.)
Big apologies to my NNWM friends.
I wasn’t much support but I promise never to do it again.
PS: Netherlands still winning in the blog view stats – two days in a row. I don’t know why, but nice to know you’re there!

There are a few things I know about the Netherlands.
It has a history of great painters.
And good cheese such as Edam and Gouda.
There are tulips, windmills and clogs.
50% of the land lies less than 1 metre above sea level.
Tuesday’s weather will be a minimum of -7 and a maximum of -1, with a chance of snow and 20% chance of rain.
What I don’t know is why there has been a sudden rush of views of my blog from the Netherlands.
Can anyone tell me?
