I thought I would cheer up Dr Joolz by saying that due to her expert help and instruction I have just started my blog.
Visitors will have to realise however, that I am only just learning but there will be themes on this blog which will appear with monotonous regularity.
Commenters may be interested to know the themes in advance, so they can adjust their comments accordingly.
For now the themes are:
I thought I would begin my blog by talking about all the things I have lost.
Since my Phd thesis was about ephemera I also think lost things are v. interesting as is mess.
I recently thought I lost my train ticket from London to Sheffield and had to pay £50 for a new one only to find I had it all along.
This is called being disorganised.
I also lost my rucksack (as above) on a bus (with my lap top in it) but it was Hurrah returned.
Other things I have lost: several small items of jewellery, this child (once in the park and he was returned by the park keeper) a present for my daughter's friend (on a bus), my mobile phone for the whole summer, my car in a multi story car park (intelligent readers will realise this car is not mine and therefore this part of the blog is made up but I like that car so it will be mine for the blog obviously it was not my car I lost) and also lots of umbrellas.
Hurrah for buses and for Ken Livingstone who I adore as he makes all the buses run on time.
I have also got lost here when a very small child.
Can people tell me what they lost?
