Hanging My Stocking on the Wall

I have been musing, whilst Z has been pondering the benefits and disadvantages of blogging on a daily basis. I have never blogged on a daily basis, at the height of my blogging frenzy I may have managed three posts in a week, but these days I can barely get one up once a month.
I do admire bloggers who have the stamina required for the dailies; I don't actually believe I could deliver, BUT... I am going to try, for one week only... starting right now... just to find out what it's like.

Today I have mostly been hoovering my crevices in preparation for tinsel.

Here is a tune to cheer me on my way.... and I think I promised I'd play this for Mr Logs...



It's okay, you can slap me now.

  1. I admire your determination.

    If, however, you are going to be posting a christmas song for each of the seven days, please let me know now, and I will rejoin you when this insanity has ended.

    As if I would do such a terrible thing...

  3. "Hoovering my crevices." Is this a strange new form of feminine hygiene?

  4. Cor lummee, best of luck! There's no way I could post every day, I'd be knackered and nothing else would get done.

    John g - Nothing feminine about it. I hoover my crevices at least twice a day. Do you mean to say you've never hoovered yours at all? *shocked*

  5. Good luck! I struggle twice a week *cough* let alone every day. Go for it girl.

  6. "hoovering my crevices in preparation for tinsel"

    A week of that would be fascinating! Pix, please!

  7. Nick, the thought of a hoover near my crevices sends shivers down my spine!

  8. For the first time I am glad that GEMA - otherwise known as "basteds of the universe" - did not allow me to see the video.
    Basically there may be nothing wrong with doing it every day. But I follow Dr.Martin Luther: "In der Woche zwier, schadet weder ihm noch ihr." Roughly: Twice a week is enough.

  9. I am glad you are back!

    We don't hoover in the States, but have no lack of crevices, particularly between the ears of the "You can't SAY Merry Christmas anymore!" crowd that foams at the mouth for the month of December.

    Back to my stoic Midwestern face,

  12. Oh darling, welcome. You may never look back from this. Too much fun xx

  13. oOOo, I'm so glad you're not posting all of them in one day, too fast, pacing your posts is so wise, keeping the rythm and size just right...

  14. Could I hoover my crevices with a 10 year old dyson with blocked hepa filters?

  15. You are going to post everyday! Good luck with that. I'm struggling at the moment to blog once a week. Real life is getting in the way.

    That's a classic song!

  18. I don't hoover anymore now I have a maid with Dyson syndrome. Do you remember the old manual carpet sweepers? Bwaaaaaaaaaaa!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I remember the old manual carpet sweepers very well. I also remember when I was too poor to afford either a carpet sweeper or a hoover and I had to use a dustpan and brush.

  20. Johnn: One does wonder!

    Nick: It's only a week of posting! Pur-leeze! You know what I'm like... I have crevices to maintain.

    Dicky: Only a week... just to see what it's like... I definitely know I'm not capable of posting daily in the long term.

    Mr LX: At least one of my posts this week will include pictures. The tinsel will be a highlight.

    John: ...we shall soon suck away your cobwebs...

    Mr Mags: Hopefully this rash of posting we get me up to two a week for next year... and perhaps this idea was a little rash...

    Pearl: Ha! Yes, those strange foaming people have a large vacuum between their ears.
    Merry Christmas!

    Macy: This did cross my mind... but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

    Bux: I have ten lords a leaping in my back passage...

    John: Indeed!

    Z: I am exhausted already... but I'm hoping it will pep me up a bit.

    Mr Maps: I love tinsel... it should feature all year.

  21. Wendy: Some of these posts maybe short and sweet....

    Mr Nikos: Probably! I am hoovering my crevices with a 20 year old Vax, it has ancient attachments that fall off in mid suction. Frustrating.

    Mr Joey: A classic song indeed!
    Only for a week!!! This time next week I will probably be dreaming of another extended blogging break.

    Mitzi: Do you mean a Bissell? My Mum had one... and I had a toy one!
    I have found this blog HERE, it seems to be about the history of vacuuming.

    Nick: You may also be interested in the above link to the vacuuming blog.

    I'm a nightmare for splitting infinitives aren't I? Nevermind.

  23. Can it still technically be considered "hoovering" if you use a Dyson?

    ReplyDelete
  24. MJ: I actually have a very old Vax, so technically I have been Vaxing... which almost sound exotic... until used in the context of Vaxing my crevices.

  25. MJ: No, but I do mop it down with a warm cloth.

  26. Does your Vax collect a lot of dust?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Do you keep your Vax and your Smeg together?

    ReplyDelete
  28. No they must be kept apart at all times otherwise bad things happen.

  31. Its horses for courses isn't it?
    Do what you are comfortable with and don't expect to be able to write deathless prose every time - or in my case - ever:)

  32. Don't you go blaming me for your Christmas music selection ....

    You just reminded me, I did do a week of blogging once, building up to my normal oversized, overblown blog by adding a new bit each day - I actually got complaints from a few of my regulars who were having a hard enough time ignoring my weekly publishing and had no wish to put the extra effort involved in ignoring the BlackLOG on a daily basis....

  33. Pat and Mr Logs: I was thinking of writing a sentence a day for this blogging marathon, but I have suppassed my wildest dreams by managing at least one paragraph per post. It won't last.

  34. A daily dose...it's Friday and I've only just got to this one :-((

  35. It's okay.. my week started on Tuesday... which means it'll soon be over and I can go back to sleep.
    I am getting in a right muddle.
