So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Mother in possession of two children in school must be in want of a life. One that isn't virtual that is.
So dear readers it is with some regret that I close this blog and attempt to find some kind of existence beyond the four walls of my kitchen, one hopefully with more padding than this kitchen chair I've been sitting on for the last three years.
It's been wonderful knowing you all, I've made some great virtual and some non virtual friends, followed your adventures and laughed and cried with a lot of you.
Rest assured I will still be haunting your blogs, I'll just comment anonymously, just to keep you all guessing...
You'll forgive an old gal some indulgence won't you if I repost my four favourite ever posts? Call it nostalgia, call it blatant hooting about the glory years, call it plagiarism from the past. Whatever, just indulge me, there's a love.
So long,
MH xxxxxx

Nooooooooooo! Don't leave us!
Let's call it a vacation.
Okay, a very long vacation.

Raise the kids, take the husband on a world cruise, kick back and sip champagne while Richard Armitage whispers sweet nothings in your ear. Whatever it takes to recharge.

Just don't leave us... for good... sniff...

Was it something I said?

I would like to thanks for the efforts you've put in writing this web site. I am hoping the same high-grade blog post from you in the upcoming also. Actually your creative writing skills have inspired me to get my own web site now. Really the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a great example of it.

A payday loan (also called a payday advance) is a small, short-term unsecured loan. They enable you to free up some cash straight away for anything from covering unexpected expenses or pay bills, get a car fixed, pay for medical care, or to cover a monthly bill.
