Things I know

"The time has come the walrus said, to speak of many things"

Well maybe not to speak of many things, and certainly not shoes and ships and ceiling wax as the next line of the poem would go.  Instead it is time to share once again the Things I Know

I know I am once again more than pleased it is Friday.  Though since this Friday entails an early morning start, followed by a full day's conference with DD3 in tow, this Friday may not be all the fun and games that a Friday is normally cracked up to be.

I know that I am pretty stoked with the fact that the school has asked me to be a part of it's well being group and as such I get to go to conference's like today.  I also know  that I think it is wonderful such conferences are happy for me to take DD3 with me.

I know that I think it is pretty cool to start each paragraph not only in italics but also with the same words. Just one of the many reasons why TIK is just awesome, as is Shae for hosting it.

I know that there are still two whole weeks left of school before the holidays are finally here.  I know that one week is not nearly long enough but I am not really complaining as the four week break in the middle of the year overrides it all.

I know that when I was checking in on Blogger stats last night I was disappointed to see only a tiny increase since last time I checked in.  However I know that the two comments that had been left in that time made up for it as they were two of the best comments I have received in a very long time.  It certainly reminded me that it is not about how many but who.

I know that I really want to change my comment section so that I can reply to people personally and also so they have the opportunity to leave a link back to their last post.  I know that I don't really know the best way to go about it and that even when it is a change I want for and desire that change still makes me a little uncomfortable in one way or another.

I know  that lately I seem to be thinking a lot more about my father.  That is probably just because of impending anniversary...

I know this is probably enough for one post (cue crying child to confirm)

So what do you know?

Head over to 
yes, yes I know two buttons here probably wasn't necessary but you should know  by now that I just love buttons!


  1. It's funny how all it takes is a couple of valuable comments, to make blogging worth it. Don't be disheartened by stats. Just keep writing about the things that are important to you. The rest will follow :)

  2. Definitely take quality over quantity in the comment stakes. Hope you have a great holiday & have some time to relax and unwind x

  3. My kiddies are off to there grandparents for the school holidays so i'm really looking forward to them. ;)

    I have just about given up on trying to understand my stats there always all over the place, its the comments that count. ;)

  4. I would rather have a small group who actually participate with comments than many who flit by randomly! BTW, can the next post be titled "Cabbages and Kings?" ;-) (love lewis carroll!)

  5. I love it when Friday's roll around too. Hope the conference went well.

  6. i get a bit hooked on stats too... and comments comments and more comments... i mean gee, i wrote a post about it... but i think i know there are so many factors and one day varies to the next

    i hope they are good memories about your dad :) xx

  7. Totally agree with you - the comment love far outweighs the stats for me. And yay on the conference. That's fabulous! xx

  8. I use intense debate for comments and I must say I love it so far.

    Thanks for joining in!

  9. I am loving the italics too. I want to be able to comment on comments too, but a bit scared of it too.

    I look at the stat thing about once a month. Comments are much more important.

  10. I'm loving my (wordpress plug in) that sends the emails out to commentors when I reply, andthat others I follow use as a conversation can continue if you wish, and i don't always remember to subscribe to comments.

    I wish everyone would stop talking about school holidays! Whilst I love the not having to get Miss 5 to all of her activities two weeks of her need for undivided attention and my inability to get up and go to the gym will send me nuts by the end. Love/hate school holidays, but am very, very afraid of the Summer holidays, even if school does start next year and it's our last big special time together for awhile.

  11. I love comments, so much more important than any number in the stats.

    Hope the conference was really good :-)


Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses to you, thanks for stopping by, it really means a lot, you taking the time so say hi. I try as much as I can to write a reply but if for some chance I don't get to it please know that I always read them.
