Ah, what a week!

Or rather what a waste of a week! Though I won’t deny I’ve enjoyed it being different to the regular routine.

I had the BH home yesterday afternoon, very ill, poor thing. But apart from P, all are back at school today. And I think P is faking, but it’s Friday and I really couldn’t be doing with words exchanged first thing, so I let it go and he’ll go back on Monday.

Today had a clumsy start, with me crawling out of bed in disbelief it could possible be morning. It didn’t help that I’d apparently had a bad night and woke the BH with my nightmares, so he was tired too.

And it was raining. Really raining. Torrential.

And guess whose car had the sun roof left open all night? Yep, it’s one of THOSE days. But it’s FRIDAY, so I can’t help but be a little bouncy!

Having said that, I have a problem. Yesterday afternoon my bl*g was viewed by someone local, and as the BH was home in bed, I know it wasn’t him.

Now I’m sure all you normal people out there won’t understand why this freaks me BIG TIME. But it does.

And I need to do something about it to ensure this place remains anonymous to those I have to deal with in real life. I don’t want to trash or delete the entire thing, but I think I shall have to do some editing, rearranging, and messing to put my mind at ease. I live in a small place, and just can’t face too many people knowing the nonsense that goes on in my head.

So over the weekend, expect changes. And I’ll be starting by assuming a pen name. Many apologies up front for any confusion this may cause. But I’ll be calmer for it. I promise!

Say you are from the Isle of Man. That will throw anyone off course.

I TOTALLY understand.

Go for it, "sister"!

I'm glad you and the kiddies are doing better and I hope BH is better soon as well.

Blogger Me Over Here said...'s so ironic that I was JUST in your position. Unfortunately, I don't think a "Hey YOU, quit freaking reading my blog" will do for your situation.

As Huw suggested to me once, you can always just change the name of your blog, so you don't have to scrap it completely. When I changed from a Livejournal to a blog, I posted my last LJ entry and said "If any of you would like the link to my new blog, please email me here", and used a junk email address that Huw gave me. This way, you can weed out those that you want viewing your blog...and those you don't.

I'll think of some other ways throughout the day, see if I can come up with anything else. I'm so sorry this happened! Trust me, I know how it feels to have someone lurking around that you DON'T want invading your life.

Happy Friday. Be bouncy. Worry about the sunroof later.

Huw - That would throw me off course too ;o)

Thanks *anon*

MOH - It's anyone on this island I don't want lurking ;o). Luckily I don't think I interested that one hit, but they found my through googling my location (which I didn't expect 'coz most sites offered have 'New' in front of the name). I'll just have to edit or dump my archives and then make sure I don't mention location again. Then once I've removed pictures and my name I should be fine :o) p.s. The kids have soaked up a lot of the water that came in the roof!

Yes, it is interesting the things we send out into the void of cyperspace that we won't say to those we live with and love. I like to call it an honesty masquerade. Change the name of your blog. Your readers will find you again if they need to hear what you need to say. I don't think anything is by chance...

I had my ex husband reading my blog. He even gave the addy to the FBI after my son ran away from him. So I changed blog sites, names, everything. I know exactly how you feel! I also did the "email me for the new addy" thing like "Me over here" did.

Since I don't have a sunroof I normally just leave the windows down when it rains. By accident of course.

yeah, naming yourself Jona means they will be looking for somebody with a real lot of fat.

Ignorance is bliss. If we didn't have SiteMeter, we wouldn't know who is viewing, and unless somobody said something, we'd be dumb and happy!

You're going to name yourself after a pen? What... Bic Rollerball? Mont Blanc? ...that's just crazy talk...

I'm just back from Tunisia, and am glad to find something of you still here.

Welcome home, Dave :o)

With a lot of editing and a name change, I'm hoping it's enough!
