This is number 1 and the story’s just begun…

Well, here we are again.

Traditionally, the wunth of this month is when I start my Feb blogging marathon, with a post about how I don’t think I’m going to be able to get through it, because I have nothing creative to say.

But each year, I somehow manage it.

This year though, I really have contemplated not doing it. You’ll have probably noticed the dearth of posts recently.

My blogging mojo has buggered right off and has disappeared into the distance in a puff of apathy.

And so, as I said, I have thought about maybe not doing it this year.

But if I don’t, that means I  stopped doing it after thirteen years.  Which is an unlucky number.

Not that us Taureans believe in such nonsense.

And I probably need this extra pressure… just to get me back into the swing of things.

So, I’m going to give it a go. We’ll see what happens and how long I last.

To add to my woe, it’s a Leap Year… so I’ll need to find an extra post.

I’d ask you to wish me luck, but us Taureans don’t believe in that either.

    I shall be popping in to see how you get on with it. I won’t hold it against you if you don’t manage the whole month though.

      Thanks TA.
      And I’m pleased to say that the usual suspects (Bren and Dave) are once again joining me on this pointless exercise.

    (in a manly kind of way, obv)

    • Masher

      Loves ya.

    Just pretend you’re on the radio chatting, radio amateurs can turn a monologue into an epilogue.

    Look on it as a chat on the radio and you will be home and dry.

    • Masher

      Hi Robert!
      Indeed, some of my QSO’s can go on for hours (it feels… for the chap at the other end).
      Until I run out of subjects.

      • Alan

        ‘or even on the phone to Alan griping about the bloody traffic.

        • Masher

          Until the F1 season starts again, what else is there to talk about?

          Don’t answer that.

  4. Dave

    An extra day, an extra day. Why didn’t I realise that. Oh well, just 28 to go.

    • Masher

      Yep, it catches us out every four years.

  5. Frances

    Blimey , that has made me wonder how long I have been reading you, I have
    Seen several of these months of every day posts! You are the closest person whose blogs I read. Harpenden/Luton. Not far away! Go for it.

    • Masher

      I would say, too long, Frances!
      But I thank you for it anyway.
      Crazy, how time flies, innit?

  6. Jules

    Well, I’m glad you decided to do it. Where would blogging be without you? And, it’s good for you to keep your mind active and creative. Us Taureans don’t believe in just staying put on the couch and bingeing on takeaways and Netflix series.

    • Masher

      Without me, t’would be left to the professionals, like yourself, Jules.

      At the moment we do!
