Blogging Again

Why would I want to start blogging again after having given it up on the RW's retirement? Well, I miss doing it, and I miss the discipline of keeping some sort of diary of what goes on Castle Greyskull, (aka The Rectory).

Not that my viewing figures were astronomical! Far from it, but I wasn't really doing it for other people anyway, but mostly for myself. Just keeping a wee journal of events, and being able to look back at them and laugh was always good therapy, and something I've come to miss. On bad days I was able to look back at the good ones, and on good days, looking back at the bleaker ones instilled a bit of gratitude into my soul!

So often in the past weeks things have happened that I've wanted to share, and Facebook doesn't always do it for me. (Well, it can be a bit bland and fails sometimes to capture the humour of a situation!) The rat that the cat brought in, and its ultimate demise, the opulence of the RW's Retirees Lunch, the joy of learning that I'll soon be a grandfather...... and a decent run of results for Partick Thistle Nil have all gone unreported!

I'll never win Blogger of the Year, far too dull and uncontroversial these days for that, but I'm not here to try to vie with the "Big Boys and Girls". Just a wee journal for others to chuckle away at, or not, as the case may be. Hey! I'm actually looking forward to a return!

Congratulations, Father Kenny. I am delighted to be able to inform you that you have been declared BLOGGER OF THE YEAR (Dumbarton Section) in the extremely dodgy OCICBW... Blogger Of The Year Competition. Well done. There is no cash prize.

Welcome back, I hope you can find a proper balance.

Oh, Kenny's not that old, Erp.

Nice to see the blog up and running again! You have also been officially awarded the title of St Augustine's SEC Dumbarton Blogger of the Year.

Your prize is the key for a brand new Ferrari. Thought of giving you the Ferrari itself but the church treasurer says we cannae afford it :-)

Maybe we can have some retrospectives on these events you mention? Nae pressure, mind ...

Hoorah! So glad you are back. I don't read many blogs, just a few favourites, so when two of those -you and Eamonn - both retired from the field, I was sad. So glad you are both sharing your wisdom again.

Is one ever too young not to seek a proper balance?

Kenny! What a coincidence that I should visit on the very day you start back blogging! I confess that I have not been here for ages. Welcome back to Blogland.

Well, I see my visit was actually the day after, but I was close.
