Nice castle…ooh, nice castle….mmm, I like that castle

Okay, okay, I give in! Due to a timely prompt from JtL in previous commentage, I have been reborn – as an incarnation of my former self. Or, at least, my blog has.

My avatar is now Dorey, the wonderfully forgetful and scatty fish from Finding Nemo. I have given her a nice blue background to get lost in. The tag line for the blog is a variation of ‘Random acts of kindness in the community’, which I have actually heard of as a form of evangelism. Honest! The friend who told me that she was taking part had not even a hint of irony in her voice.

As for the nice castle in the title of this entry, I will explain for the benefit of those who do not already know. Let us picture a goldfish, with its legendarily short memory, swimming around and around the plastic model in the middle of its bowl. Get the idea?*

Btw, would’ve used the fish in the bowl as avatar, but could not dare to incur the Legendary Wrath of Smudgie!

* The golfish didn’t!

What am I doing here?

This is a question I have asked myself on a couple of occasions recently.

I did not tell you, but in the first week of my new job, just prior to Chirstmas, I did something very foolish. Due to a misunderstanding, I went to work on my day off. D’oh! Not a good start in anyone’s book.

Never mind, New Year, fresh start and all that.

Which is all very well…unless you repeat the same mistake in your second week of work. As I said before, New Year is a very arbitrary concept.

Ah well, anything I do from now on MUST be an improvement on this.

Please, Lord?!?
