E was supposed to be for elephants, because they are my passion.
But it's not- because the excuse is, I have all these excuses why I haven't been up to speed with this challenge.
Excuses, excuses, excuses are all I have to offer today for the A- Z Challenge. Yup! Excuses. You'll probably get a few more before this challenge is finished, but then that's life after all. Shit happens, plans go awry or the best intentions get derailed and we have to adjust and move on. I'm moving on.
But here's what happened-
The B Excuse - B was supposed to be for Boats...or Boys in Boats. But the half day fishing trip, that my son shouted us both on as a Christmas present, turned out to be a 14 hour day! Now I'm not going to moan about that...it was an awesome but long and tiring day out on a charter boat fishing in Cook Strait. Very windy with 3- 5 metre swells rocking that boat all day. Amazing I was not seasick. But no way could I even think about blogging on a computer when I finally got home: I was showered and off to bed!
Besides, the world wouldn't stop rolling around.
The C Excuse - C was to have been about Catch up. But ( there's a lot of buts in this blog) my plans to catch up went awry also.
Here's the list of excuses-
My mates came around because my wife was away for the weekend and the barbeque we had went on forever and all the food and wine was just sooo good and the computer screen was looking all wobbly and the keyboard jumped all over the place so no blogging until my good wife came back and then I couldn't welcome her back and jump back onto a perfectly unmoving computer straight away and ignore her after we'd missed each other so much could I?
I'd have been killed!
But there'd be no blogging for the challenge at all then, would there?
Good thing tomorrow is D Day! Yeah, I know I missed that excuse out from the list above, but that's because....
