Good Stuff

The baby, bless his little being-looked-after-by-someone-else toes, has gone to nursery today. I think yesterday was all about the teething. I don't know though. You never really do.

So today I'm all on my own in my delightfully-quiet house and I'm preparing for something Very Important I have coming up, something which will probably determine whether I can do my new career or not. And joy of joys, I'm so enjoying myself. It's using skills I haven't used properly for years, and I'd forgotten how much I like this stuff. To have a job which involves doing it all day every day feels like bliss at the moment. I know it won't be that simple - nothing ever is - but for today I'm feeling positive, which is a brilliant thing.

And it's all very well talking in riddles but it does get a bit wearing after a while, so I'm thinking I might start a new Totally Anonymous blog where I can write properly about the new career. Sadly it really does need to be anonymous. Properly anonymous, rather than this place, which is only halfly anonymous. Speaking of which, given that many of you know who I am anyway and the original reason for talking nonsense about nuts has now disappeared... I should probably stop talking in squirrel riddles too. Except that... I'm getting rather fond of the squirrel thing, ludicrous though it is. And I'm worried that there may be some other reason, which I haven't thought of yet, for being a bit circumspect. I have a terrible history of opening my gob (wielding my pen / keyboard) at inappropriate moments and letting all the wrong stuff fly out. So, hum. Dunno.

I dont 'think' I know you ... but it was the squirrel thing that caught my attention - told me nothing, and yet told me everything, both at the same time!
Long live t'squirrel! :)

As far as I know I don't know you either Minnie... but hurrah for squirrels nonetheless!

I don't think it's obvious at all who you are, or used to be. Or maybe I'm just dumb.

bedshaped, it's only obvious if you knew me well in my previous incarnation... which I don't think you did. Although our paths have crossed. But only briefly, and it was a while ago. There are other readers who knew me a bit better (and some of them have already guessed who I am) and still others who know exactly who I am cos I've told them.

Like I said, it's only halfly anonymous... which means it's publicly anonymous but I don't mind admitting who I am in private.

Now you see, you do seem terribly familiar though I still can't tell who you are. Or maybe that's because I didn't know you in your previously life. It's all most confuzzling.

But of course you can't go wrong with nuts and squidgies. I do wonder though. Feel free to let me in on the secret!

Beleaguered Squirrel said...

Ah well, life is generally most confuzzling. Or it is for us squidgies. :)

Doh! Now I'm confused, but I came over because I liked your novel racers' comment. Well said, whoever you are/intend to be!

Thank you ChrisH! If it's any consolation, I'm confused 90% of the time. The key is to quit fighting it: Embrace it instead. ;)
