which path

Completely shattered after a very poor night, full off cold I didn't get to sleep before 2am and was awake again by 4.40am just about ready to go back to sleep when it was time to get up for work. I sneezed and coughed my way through the day, feeling really out of sorts, just about managing to last until it was time to leave on time for a change (just goes to show how poorly I was feeling). Driving home was a nightmare, heavy rain and spray meant poor visibility, very slow stop start traffic with me having to concentrate 500% just to focus on the road. I just about managed to get through the door before collapsing on my bed. Having rung home earlier to let OJ know that he would be cooking dinner tonight as I would be going straight to bed.

So I have been dozing on and off all evening, feeling more awake now but with no intention of writing a blog post................yeah right so what do you call this then I hear you say. Now are you sitting comfortably, there are cushions scattered around my side bar if you need one (sorry they all seem to be RED or PINK) and I will begin.

Not wanting to go to the bother of writing a post I decide to satisfy my blog addiction by visiting a few of my blog pals. One of these is Trousers, he isn't a frequent visitor here, just as I visit him from time to time but not religiously. We have met a couple of times and he is not only a lovely man but interesting too. Anyway I am reading his post about having a panic attack which by the way rings a couple of bells for me. I move onto his comment box and find several references to people arriving from the Black Boxes Widget. Now just like a cat or is that a pussy I am always curious so I have scrolled up and down his blog a few times looking for this Black Box thingy but there is nothing there so I move on amd forget about it.

After I have had my fix of blogs I went over to face book which I do infrequently, there was a link on there from dj Kirkby for the Black Boxes widget. So now my curiousity really has been piqued. Following the link I find myself on Caroline Smailes blog. Now I have seen Caroline comment on blogs and dj mentions her frequently but I have never checked her out myself. It now appears that Caroline has a new book titled Black Boxes, another blogger has designed this rather smart widget along the theme of Caroline's book. You click on a set of choices and depending on your answers it takes you to a mystery blog. The more people take part the more blogs you will visit. (If you are a slave to blog hits this could be right up your street).

So I had a go at it and wouldn't you just know it, first blog it takes me to is Trousers. I have had several other goes and gone to other blogs I wouldn't have visited otherwise.

Here is the widget so you can all join in with the fun. I have already installed it in my side bar so you can continue to play anytime. I figured after the last week I needed to have a little frivolity on my blog.

Hi lady, I don't know if the widget has brought me here in the last day or two, or not: I just can't bloody remember...

But I thought I'd stop by anyway, and I must say thanks for the kind words, and am tickled by the fact that you're enjoying the widget :)
