Stop Gap

Work has taken over my life these past weeks and there simply isn’t much time to dip into other people’s blogs very often.  I’m grabbing opportunities here and there but mostly I’m just looking forward to the October holidays when there will be lazy afternoons to read all the great posts I’ve been missing.

Also have less time to blog myself than I would ideally like.  To prevent a midweek silence I’ve decided to post a few links that I’ve enjoyed recently.  Hope you like them! :)

  1. I Can Has Cheezeburger? - Blog filled with random pictures of (mostly) cats with hillarious grammatically incorrect slogans.  Not a cat person but these kitties crack me up.
  2. Gorilla - A chocolate bar advert from the UK.  Seriously weird.  Absolutely brilliant.  Who thought of this???!!  Turn the volume up and watch.
  3. World Food – This was a link from Maryann from Finding La Dolce Vita.  A Time feature showing what families around the world eat in a week.  Fascinating.

  1. Very interesting pictures under link number 3!!
    It is amazing how little some families need to survive the whole week and how much other families eat during the same week. My family spend £100 a week and we are not buying any sweets or ready meals.
    Greetings, Margot

  2. I haven’t been able to spend time online reading my fave blogs either. It just seems very busy lately. In fact I see more of the same for October and will post a bit less. So, don’t worry about it. Life happens :) The cat link is cute and the gorilla ad is cool.

  3. Margot – It really was fascinating! I keep going back and looking at all the individual items.

    Lucy – Every now and again a hamster or guinea pig picture is included. Just when I though it couldn’t get any funnier!

    Wonderousoblivion – Welcome! It’s cool, isn’t it?

    Maryann – Maybe it the time of year…

    Jeena – Thank you very much. Look forward to exploring your site too. :)

    Rosa – Glad you enjoyed it!

  4. How lucky you are to get an October vacation!

    I ran into your blog through a comment you left on Thyme for Cooking and I see we have a lot in common: teaching, cooking, reading….

    I also have a soft spot in my heart for Scotland as it was the first European country I visited. Many long years ago, I was in a youth orchestra that participated in an international festival in Aberdeen. That was my first experience with Europe…and now I live here (in France, though, not in Scotland.)

    My daughter will be taking a trip to Scotland this spring with her high school music group, so what goes around comes around. I don’t know where exactly yet, but I’ll probably come back to your blog, so I’ll keep you posted.

  5. Malika – It’s the best. And thank you!

    Betty C – I’m from just outside Aberdeen though I now live in the Highlands. It’s a lovely place to call home. Imagine France ain’t too shabby either. ;)
    Look forward to hearing about your daughter.

  6. Just outside Aberdeen! Wow! Most Scottish people I’ve had contacts with have not been near Aberdeen at all.

    There is also an Aberdeen, Washington in the USA, about an hour from where I’m from. You probably know this because Kurt Cobain was born there.
