Don't you know who I am?

I certainly don't. 

 This morning I was chatting with an online friend about an exciting collaboration we might be doing, and the subject of Pinterest came up. I remarked that I was amazed at how many followers I had and mentioned my user name - Artygal.  I was extremely tickled when she informed me that I was famous and she was always seeing pins by me in her feed.

Flattering, weird and puzzling all at once, particularly as she is famous in my worlds for her knitting prowess and stunning photography skills


So, after being in the blog desert for a long time, I suddenly feel like blogging about lots of things.  It's a bit overwhelming.  Do I make a huge splurgy post about everything, or trickle it out in shorter bites in separate categories?

Edited to add - I'm going for the separate posts - fits with other things in my life as you will see

Ah, so that's why I never took to a Filofax

I've had one planner in my lifetime. 

when I was a department manager for Sainsburys I thought it would be smart to have one for recording sales.  I needed something that would fit in the breast pocket of my polyester brown work suit (shudder), so my mum bought me the tiniest one from WH Smiths for Christmas 1989 or 1990.  The pages are a minute 8cm x 12.5cm.  It didn't work for me, so it has been stored away ever since.
