Still Here

I know that some of you get notified whenever I publish a new post.

I am not sure how this works. Perhaps an email pops up saying “I bring you glad tidings of great joy”. Perhaps your computer bursts into the”Hallelujah Chorus”. Perhaps it delivers its message and then self-destructs after five seconds.

Anyway, to those of you who have rushed here with bated breath (and indeed to those who are here thinking “oh God, what has the gobshite written this time”) I’d just like to say that I’m not (a) sick, (b) dead or (c) in prison, and shame on any of you who thought that (c) was even a possibility (they’ll never find the money, or even know that I’ve stolen it, it really was the perfect crime).

I just needed some time off, from pretty well everything, and I’m back now.

So today’s post is an explanation for you, but also an education for me. I don’t think I’ve ever had to write it down before, but if anyone had ever asked me “do you know how to spell ‘Hallelujah’?” I’d have confidently replied that I did.

And now, after four attempts and the eventual help of Google, I do.

    Not exactly a Hallelujah Chorus – a simple e-mail copying your post. If I were lazy I could read them all in my inbox instead of wandering over here and commenting.
    Hallelujah featured in my blog yesterday, but today it has morphed into the Miserere.

    I’m glad you’re not a) b) or c) – I HAD been worrying about your absence. Here’s hoping your pause re-invigorated you.

    Glad to see you back. I don’t subscribe because of my issues with overflowing inboxes, but you are on my blogroll and I check you out daily. That makes me a more valuable reader than a subscriber (apart from Viv), because they tend to visit only if they have a comment.

    Can I have my Maltesers now?

    I hadn’t started to worry just yet. You posted that you had a busy time coming up at work, so I presumed you had no spare time/energy for blogging. However it was nice when the fanfare of trumpets (I happened to have my laptop volume turned on today) played and announced that you had written a new post. What? Doesn’t everyone hear a fanfare when notification of a new Tinman post arrives? Just me then? 🙂

    My trumpets are lacking. I didn’t even get the email I should have got. I just happened by since I was beginning to wonder when I should begin to worry. I’m glad I did, since I don’t need to at all. Good to see you here 🙂

    Hello, Tinman… I haven’t received any notifications of your posts up to now, but this is possibly due to the fact that I have only now started to follow your writing; sorry about that. Tilly Bud sent me your way!
