Blogging for no reason

I have nothing to blog about, I have plenty to say but it's probably of no interest to anyone. I had a great Christmas and New Year, but that's available in my #onedailypositive #project365 blog posts. Mum had a lovely trip over also, that's available on my facebook and instagram.

I did blog today about recycling in Dubai, but that was written for a prompt. I've a couple of construction project posts to update, but since the end of #mysundayphoto where I linked up a post a week on this, I've lost the desire to sort through photo's.

I've a couple of posts about the garden, a few day trips into the mountains and markets in the UAE and there's even a post waiting to go about things to do in Monmouth, South Wales, but I'll wait till I'm over there next before posting about it.

The cat and dog are OK, the husband is OK. Child 2 and 2a are visiting in a few weeks. I'm marshalling at the Golf in Abu Dhabi next week. I've got the dentist tonight and it's the Quiz of the Year also at our local pub. Yes we have pubs in Dubai.

The house has been restored to near normal after Christmas, although with the purchase of a new sofa for the mezzanine, there has been quite a lot of moving items around and deep cleaning. All that is on Instagram under #myhousethismonth

The neighbours are annoying us with their under 10 year old in regards to no discipline, he yelled 'fucking hell' twice in the garden the other week, his mother just asked him to calm down. He's quite a pleasant child and responds well to me asking him not to do something, but in this house he is very noisy, up till 11pm most nights and constantly thumping around, screaming and banging the stair rails. Twice over the holidays after 11pm I've knocked on their door and asked them to keep the noise down. I don't think he has any additional needs, just lack of parenting.

The car registration needs renewing, including the insurance. The diaries need to be updated and I'm resetting all passwords online. I've a cactus that needs repotting and yet more sand to sweep off the balcony.

I'm not in the menopause, I've written enough about depression and chronic pain. The kids left home years ago now so no more empty nest syndrome, I'm over the raw grief of my father's death mid 2017. After 8 years abroad, I can't really call myself an expat anymore, although we will return to the UK, life is just how it is now.

I've travel to the UK, Northern Ireland, Australia, the States and South Africa to look forward to this year, but the internet is full of 'how to pack/book car hire/things to do at the airport' posts.

Child 4 and 4a are getting married in September, this is our second child to get married so I've written all about being the Mother of the Groom and fretting over what to wear already.

But for now, my coffee has to come to an end, there is shopping to unpack, the washing machine and dishwasher need emptying and the cleaning and ironing can wait till tomorrow.

What are you doing this week you can blog about? Something new? or just repeating the same old stuff like everyone else is with a sponsored blog just thrown in here and there?

  2. For someone who has nothing to blog about it, you've done a great job of writing this post! And you're certainly going to be very busy again over the coming year.

  3. I don't think you have nothing to blog about, maybe you just don't feel the motivation. There is certainly plenty going on without the things you've already talked about, and in the blogging world there is always room for repetition. (I do it frequently, but I'm not sure if that's just because I forgot that I've already talked about it!) I hate it when the perfect blog post comes to you just before you go to sleep and you can't remember it when you get up in the morning.

  6. Hi suzanne, it's funny how the end of My Sunday Photo has probably left many of us stumped for Sunday posts. I really enjoyed that link up to and it gave me a good excuse to practice and try to improve my photography. As for not having anything to write? I think you did well and will always have something to write/say (don't take that the wrong way)... I can sort of relate to what you are saying though, everything seems the same and not very interesting to share, but you'll be surprised. I do like reading your posts, this one included... It must be a proper pain living door to an inconsiderate family. Hopefully they will see the error of their ways one day.

    Thank you for popping by and joining in with #keepingitreal.

    xx

  7. It can be hard to constantly come up with fresh ideas to write about, that is for sure. I tend to draw from my experiences with the people around me. They tend to keep me well stocked up. A bit too stocked up at times to be honest! Keep those words flowing! #triumphanttales

  8. I totally get this post , sometime the mundane bits of life take over don't they , leaving you with nothing of note . Although even in this post it seems that you have so much going on. I guess it's the comedown from Christmas leaves everyone a little bit flat.#blogcrush
