Have Fun

I'm taking a short blogging-break, but rest assured I'll still be visiting, so remember to behave!  Back soon(ish).  x

you are so darn cute with your dimple! enjoy your time away!

Barbara said...

Cute picture! Enjoy your break! I'll try to behave :)

Kate said...

I'll never behave, but you have a fine break anyway!

Tabor said...

What on earth are you up to with that devilish grin?

Hilary said...

Ahh I had to click "classic" to be able to navigate your blog and leave a comment.. the mosaic (which it first appeared as) was giving me all sorts of problems including only showing half of the comment field.

Anyway... enjoy your break. :)

Ms. A said...

I had to click "classic" too! Enjoy your break, I'll wait.

MarkD60 said...

NOO! Don't take a break! I keep coming back looking for new posts, and this is definitely NOT the post I wanted to see!

~Babs said...

Oh, I hope I can do this properly,,,
I've had a heck of a time commenting
on blogs with this new format.
Anyway, will miss you, but enjoy your time off,
you cute little scamp!

bill lisleman said...

Have a great break - I thought your whole life was a break.

Shrinky said...

TexWisGirl, I'll have you know my eldest calls my dimples, "those hole in your face", I can't thank you enough for this, haaaaaaaaaaa, I am about to print this out, and shove it up his nose!

Shrinky said...

Oh Barbara, I only said to behave, I didn't say HOW to behave, now did I? Badly's fine by me.. (Wink|)

Shrinky said...

Aw Kate, that's my gal!

Shrinky said...

Oh Tabor, if only you knew (sigh). Actually, when that was taken, my sis' took the pic - she was over from the mainland on a vist - and all it did was POUR down - it doesn't show on the photo, but the rain was torrential..

Shrinky said...

Thanks for perservering Hilary, I liked this layout a lot, but as you can see, I've reverted back to my tried and trusted old style again, it's obviously far more reliable!

Shrinky said...

Sorry Ms. A, and many thanks for bearing with it to get through - I guess I shouldn't fiddle - as the old adage goes, "If it 'ain't broke, why fix it?".

Shrinky said...

Mark, I think this is possibly the very best comment I've ever had, you have no idea how much this has made my year (see my happy face?), thank you so much, bonny lad, you are a both a scholar and a gentleman! (x)

Shrinky said...

Hiya Babs, and um, hey, it takes one to know one, y'know? (Grin) And, och, I'll be back soon enough, I can never stay away for long!

Shrinky said...

Bill, I may not have a salaried job, hon, but being a full time carer for my man-child son is taking it's toll right now, one of my reasons for NEEDING a break from just about everything.

ps. Unlike regular folk, I don't get ANY holidays, it's 24/7.

mythopolis said...

I am going to miss you, big time. But, even Dawson said, "S..t, ya gotta have prayorities...."

hugs, dan

secret agent woman said...

Enjoy the time off!

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Enjoy that time off!

Shrinky said...

Hi Dan, my friend. Aw, you won't miss me at all, 'cos I'll still be over as much as ever, to see you, this I promise! (x)

Shrinky said...

Thanks, Secret Agent.

Shrinky said...

Oh Madge, I'm so sorry to run out, just as you come in for a first time visit! Thanks for dropping by.

Fen said...

Enjoy your break, look after yourself & we'll still be here on your return, waiting to read your brilliant words. x

Shrinky said...

Thanks Fen, you're a pal!

Cricket said...

Ah. Well, that was a short one.

Enjoy your break, but do come back. It may be harder than you think... for all my good intentions, I have yet to get it back together.

And just for a laugh, re a previous response, I heard recently, in reference to our Republican party, but pretty widely applicable, the philosophy:

If it ain't broke, break it!

Shrinky said...

Haaaa, I think that version is probably more apt, when it comes to politicians, Cricket. Ah, as for the break, I find I'm putting up far too many re-posts as of late. I decided to be honest with myself, blogging isn't doing anything more than guilt-tripping me right now, I'm finding little new to post.. it's def time for a break.

Stickup Artist said...

Oh No, I just got here! But you are so cute I'll have to forgive you! And I can't believe there is a place called Craggy Island. Sounds awesome! Enjoy your break!

Shrinky said...

Hi there Stick-up! Okay, I'll confess, Craggy Island is a fictional island used in the TV comedy series "Father Ted", which was meant to be an island just off the coast of Ireland. As I happen to live on a tiny island just off the coast of Ireland, and am convinced the plot they came up with may have been inspired by some of the inbred and quirky neighbours in these parts, I've claimed the name Craggy Island for our own (it's actually name is The Isle of Man)!

Shrinky said...

Hum, I meant to say actual, not actually (blush..)

X. Dell said...

Of course, I understand. Have fun. Will look forward to your return.

Shrinky said...

Thanks X-Dell, but I'll still have you on my stalking list (wink)..

X. Dell said...

Y'know, the way you put that, it sounds like fun.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hope you're out having a VERY fun time.
xoxo jj

Shrinky said...

And it is, X-Dell, 'specially when you don't draw the shades (evil cackle).

..walking away, hands in back pocket, attempting an innocent whistle..

Shrinky said...

JJ, I'm really excited, I have big plans!

silly rabbit said...

Enjoy your blogging break! I think we all need those from time to time.
I don't know about behaving though.
=;] Its not near as much fun as the alternative.

Middle Child said...

What a great photo - will miss your posts - probably not on here too much myself till I get organised after the big move so hopefully thats about when you feel like posting again

Skunkfeathers said...

The blogisphere will eagerly await your return ;-)

Choco said...

I am a silent..very silent.. follower and avid reader of your blog. I will miss you. Terribly. Enjoy though. And come back with fantastic stories. God Bless :)

Shrinky said...

Like I said, Silly Rabbit, I only said to behave, I never said HOW to.. (grin)

Shrinky said...

Oooh, Therese, so much is happening for you right now, exciting times, eh? Hope all is going well, hon, I'm thinking of you.

Shrinky said...

Aw, cheers Skunk, I can never stay away for long, I'll be back for my fix in no time, count on it.

Shrinky said...

Oh Choco, this is so special for me, thank you for your kind words, they have truly made my day. I know you have commented before, tho' not often. The fact that you purposefully visit simply because you actually are entertained by some of my writing is HUGE, and gives me such a boost!

Robyn said...

You will be very missed.
I hope your break involves fun:)

Shrinky said...

Hi Robyn, yup, lots of catch up to do, but some fun too, I hope!

foam said...

I hope it's a fun and restorative break!! And hopefully we will see you sooner then later.

Shrinky said...

Hi Foam, thanks hon, I will, I can never stay away for long!

Suldog said...

Never mind US having fun, YOU have some! We'll be here when you get back, love.

Shrinky said...

Cheers Sully, you won't believe the list of stuff I need to cross off, it feels good to finally make a start.

chewy said...

Och... I finally steal some time to catch up on your blog and you've run off... (wink) one of my fav pics of you. Dang... now I have to try and remember my Blogger password...

mrsnesbitt said...

You know where we are hun xxxx This time next year there will be a room waiting for you - sounds like a good break, here back to your roots.

Take care Carol, call me anytime Dxxx

Shrinky said...

Chewy? That name rings a bell.. oh yeah! I remember you (wink), was a time you used to read every post of mine! Nice to see you in here again, guess you found your password then? (Hugs)

Shrinky said...

Hi Denise, yeah, Sam and Al are looking forward to taking you up on your kind offer, when they next pass through your neck of the woods!

sage said...

have fun!

Shrinky said...

Thanks Sage, I will!

Bone said...

Great pic. Looks like a nice place to be!

Enjoy your hiatus. I tend to take unannounced hiatuses. Weekly :)

Shrinky said...

Ha, Bone, nice place to be? I have my hands in the air, 'cos the minute I hit the beach the heavens opened out - it was piddling it down!

Rock Chef said...

Hah, now I can comment! The mass of photos messed my up big time when I tried before!

Make sure you come back soon! I can imagine that the run up to Christmas is mayhem in your house, so try to stay sane!

Shrinky said...

Aww, I'm sorry, RC, I heard that new format was pretty useless to comment with, so I've reverted back to my usual style again now - thanks for perservering (hugs). Yeah, I'm off to see the eldest, in Newcastle, this weekend, thought I'd get some Christmas shopping in whilst I'm there. 'Tis the season to be busy, eh? I'm sure you have your hands full, too.

Parabolic Muse said...

What the hell?
A BREAK?!


well...


...okay.

TechnoBabe said...

Is it soon-ish yet?

Fragrant Liar said...

Okay, I guess we'll allow you a short hiatus. Lord knows, I've taken my share. Rest up and come back with lots of stories. See you then, Shrinky.

Shrinky said...

Sorry Chrissie (blush), but a girlie's gotta' do what a girlie's gotta' do..!

Shrinky said...

Ha, I do so love you Technobanbe - and hey, what a gorgeous new avatar pic you have up there.

Shrinky said...

Hey there Fragrant, great to see you again. Yeah, I think this break will do me a world of good!

Jayne said...

Ack! Just when I get round to visiting you! Well, enjoy your break, and for goodness sake, Have Fun! ;)

(No doubt, you will!)

Shrinky said...

It's odd Jayne, I AM enjoying the freedom, but the withdrawal is now starting to kick in..!

Margaret Benbow said...

What! How dare you take a break!!????? You mean your blog isn't really all about USSSSS? About our NEEEEDS? Well...HUMPH!

Just joking, dear Shrinky. Kiss us off whenever you need to , it's good for you! :^) By the way, great foxy picture!

Grayquill said...

You look like you are already having fun. I see Choco has made her way here. I am not surprised as I know she enjoys great writing. Choco was on of my first blogger friends - Her feedback is always a delight. Congrats on a great blogger friend.

Shrinky said...

Hi GQ, yeah, isn't Chocco lovely? She always makes my day when she pops by, a little like how you do, too!

H A R R Y G O A Z said...

Have a SUPER week, Shrinky !

Kittie Howard said...

You're cute as a button! (Do you have that expression? It's nice, in case you don't.) Enjoy your break. I'll try to behave, well, sorta!

Shrinky said...

Haaaaaaaaaa - Margaret, it's always a delight whenever you stop by, as you never fail to paint this big, wide smile across my face, I do so look forward to your visits! (x) I'm enjoying catching up with all kinds of projects, some very long neglected and almost abandoned. Yes, I AM having fun!

Shrinky said...

WEEK, Harry?? Heavens above, gimme a break (swat!), I may be taking me a wee bit longer than that, I'm afraid (evil grin)..!

Shrinky said...

Hi there Kitty, aw shucks, we sure do have that expression, and I'm tickled pink at such lovely, if mis-placed flattery (see my happy grin?)! I may be taking a break in posting, but I can't do cold turkey altogether - I still need my fix of visiting, lookout, I'm coming over.

I am Brazilian and I am following your blog, you can follow me too?

Shrinky said...

Jaja, thanks for following, since you obviously understand English, and I PRESUME you wish to read my blog(??). Having been to your site, it appears written in Portugese, a language I do not speak. Why on earth follow someone simply to bump up your numbers?

Pat Tillett said...

I hope your "blogging break" is a positive thing for you and not something serious. What a great and cute photo!

Strumpet said...

I haven't been at it as much myself.

But, I wanted to stop by and say hello and see what Shrinky's been up to.

Enjoy your break and Blogland will see you soon.

xo

Shrinky said...

Thanks Pat, and yes, all is well, I just seem to be splitting myself in too many directions right now (smile)..!

Shrinky said...

Hey there Strumpet, great to see you again, it's always a pleasure to have you drop by. Sometimes the best cure for writers block, is to go off and do something entirely different for a while - well, that's my theory.. (wink)

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

PLEEEEZ don't be gon too long!!!!!

Nose hugs!

:@}




(sharnt behayve)

Shrinky said...

Aww, hello little Bob, how's it going, hon? Nah, I won't be able to stay away for long, I need my bloggie-fix too much!

Sandi McBride said...

Damn! I took my break and return to find you laying out? Well, enjoy your break I know I enjoyed mine, but don't know if I can behave with no one watching my back!
hugs
Sandi

bill lisleman said...

hope things are going Ok with your son. I was sorta joking on that previous comment and didn't mean to imply you don't deserve a break. Care taking for anyone is a special job that deserves praise. If you need a bloggie-fix you might be interested in a challenge I joined regarding the 12 days of Christmas which I understand is an old English tune. You Brits probably even have partridges in pear trees.

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Hope you're enjoying your time off! Thank you for visiting 'The View From Right Here!'

Parabolic Muse said...

Well I sure hope YOU"RE having fun.
xo

Shrinky said...

Hi Madge, aw 'twas a pleasure to stop by - and thanks, yes, I've just come back from visiting my eldest on the mainland - I'm enjoying myself!

Shrinky said...

Ha Chrissy, you do make me laugh! It's the first true break I've had from blogging in a long time - it's doing me well (hugs).
