WOYWW #175 - Where did the year go?
I’ve been such a bad blogger lately and didn’t even manage to drop in on everyone that visited me for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday last week.
There’s no excuse really other than the fact I was a bit distracted by a hospital appointment that was imminent, when I would get the results of the genetic blood test, but I’ll try and do better this week if I can.
The appointment I speak of was yesterday and it didn’t really go the way I wanted it to.
It turns out that I do have the hereditary faulty gene that was responsible for my cousin’s stroke last year, which increases my chances of having one by 5 – 7%. I’m not going to dwell on it though, after all, I’ve lived with it for 57 years without knowing and had no problems so it’s a case of forearmed is forewarned. The only precaution I have to take is Aspirin everyday so I think I can cope with that.
I still would have been happier if it had come back clear though.
Anyway, enough of that and on to the reason we are here this morning and that’s so I can show you what’s on my desk.
I was quite shocked when I realised that it’s been a year this week since I last updated Family Footprints in the Sands of Time, my heritage blog ………..how ashamed am I………..…so I decided to get my albums out and that’s what’s laying on my table this morning.
It’s not that I haven’t done any layouts in that time, just that I’ve not put them on the blog, so it’s not quite as bad as it looks.
There’s also some very old pages that are not on there either so my aim this week is to bring it up to date with all the things I’ve already done and then work on some new pages.
Maybe I could start with Keith, my big brother, given that he celebrated his 65th birthday and Retirement at the weekend with a family get together.
Thanks for stopping by this week. I’m going to grab a cup of coffee now and then I’ll be by to see what you are all up to.
