The word echoed in empty space,
Nothing there to take its place
The smile of greeting froze on my face,
Hello? Is anyone there?

A quick cheat check and nothing changed,
No figures or readings rearranged,
I’m finding it all now really strange,
My blog cupboard is almost bare.

bare cupboard

It’s been a really quiet day today. And I mean Really. Quiet. Like as in single figures.
I logged on this morning and caught up with your lovely comments and likes (thanks), checked out my reader, and then we had to go out as Hubby had a blood test today.
Finally things are starting to settle down and get back to normal. Hurrah!

We did a bit of shopping, then boring stuff like showers and laundry.
I’ve just logged on again, and my stats haven’t changed, though I had a couple of extra comments.
I feel like I’ve been turned off.
Ho hum.
Early night.
See you tomorrow.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    yea, my stats have been wonky for a while too. don’t know what to believe, even when I look at them.

  2. Nothing adds up, and I notice the little ‘share’ symbol in the reader has moved to be alongside the likes and comments. Still, nice to know people are still leaving comments and interacting if I leave a comment on their blogs. They’re the ones that matter. Sleep well.

      What’s really weird is normally I would get a notification when someone responded to a comment I make..but like in this case, nothing came up after you replied to me..I just stopped back to see just in case…

    Aw, Don’t stress – we are all still here! I’ve given up on the numbers!
    Have a nice day πŸ™‚

    hope things pick back up for you soon. Mine has been pretty dead since I moved. I had one day last week with over 100 views, it totally shocked me since that was more than I’d had in the last 3 months put together. You’re right, our regulars are the ones we need to pay attention to. πŸ™‚

    At least quiet times leave you room to breathe and blog, right?
