A bit of a tangle

Good morning

You might have noticed or maybe not but this little blog disappeared for a few days. I nearly pulled it completely but opted instead for a few days of it offline while I thought about things.

Sadly in this world there are people who are not nice - they take great pleasure in others sadness and like to take things and twist things to make things even more unpleasant. Well it seems some of these people have infected my life and have tried hard to make things trickier for the boys & I when things are pretty tricky sometimes any way.

However I am a stubborn little person and someone trying to make things hard for my boys means I won't roll over and die instead I'll come back fighting. I like blogging, I've been doing it for many years now and 99.9% of the time the people are lovely and friendly and I don't want to give up something I like for a tiny little minority.


So I am back and blogging - if you don't like what you read or you feel that because of the changes in my life this year I shouldn't be happy and having fun please feel free to 'whatever'.

I will be back soon with a proper post and some more happy pictures too. I might even by able to show you where all that tangle of ends come from - am really hoping I get that finished very soon.

Dear Vicki
I'm sorry to hear you have been subjected to some nastiness - I think there has been quite a lot of this negativity around as other bloggers have been talking about just this issue. Why do people feel they can be horrible just because they are typing rather than speaking? Luckily, the majority of people in Blogland are lovely and supportive. Keep that positive attitude and ignore those sad and unpleasant people!
Best wishes
Ellie

Some people...

I'm glad to see you're keeping blogging. It's where we focus on the positive things in life and if people can't understand that they don't need to be part of it, there are plenty other things they can be doing instead without being nasty to those with a different outlook on life.

All the best!

I'm very glad you have decided to stay. x

Yay good for you! There are some very sad twisted people, I always feel sorry for them though, that their lives are so empty that they only get pleasure in hurting other people. Pity them, then you don't get sucked into their negative energy :) xxx

Louise said...

I like your attitude, glad to see you back, I did notice that your blog had gone to 'invited readers only' when I came to check out recent posts.

Good for you! Never give in to these people, don't let them win.

I am happy that are enjoying your life, especially after a tough year. Too bad that some people don't feel happiness for others and have to be negative. I think you are delightful and I am glad you are still blogging. I will keep reading.

Bon courage, Vicki and do please plough on! Ploughing your own furrow, and no-one else's, of course xx

Dawn said...

That was quick :) Glad you haven't given in - the person in question really is not worth it.

Lisa said...

Very sorry to her that there has been some nastiness, some people can be very cruel.

I missed you. So glad to see your back as you live nearest to me than any other blog I read. Hooray for suffolk bloggers.

Magic Bean said...

I had a blogblip last year after the husband of a so-called friend was really nasty about my blog. I very nearly ditched it but after quite a long break, started posting again. And I am so glad I did. And I am so glad you are carrying on. Tally ho and have a happy and sunny weekend, Ax

HI so glad you are back. Ignore all the nasties, they are not worth your time. I have found such lovely bloggers out there so it is worth carrying on. Enjoy what you are doing, and we will enjoy reading it. Keep smiling.

I'm so glad you're staying in the blogging world, I really enjoy reading your posts and am looking foreward to the journey you are on with your boys, it's an exciting time.
Don't let the baddies posting the nasty stuff spoil your fun, boo, hiss to them!
The Morris dancing looks like such a fun way of sneaking some execise in too.
I love your new dress, it's a beauty, bet you look a proper bobby dazzler in that.
Your little nephew is very cute indeed, bet he smells great!

Never consider ditching your blog because of other people's head problems, as you can tell many of us truly appreciate it. X

I think most of us have had unpleasant comments at one time or another, whether from anonymous posters or people in real life who just don't get it. And it is very, very hard to just ignore it. But I am glad you are doing just that because the number of people who enjoy reading your blog and looking at your pictures vastly outnumber the small minded few who can only see the negative parts of life.

Now then - that wool is gorgeous!

topchelseagirl said...

Good for you. It is your blog so don't let them drive you away.

Vix said...

I'm glad you're still with us, most people in the world are lovely. Don't let the losers get you down. xxx

Sheila said...

Good on you! I agree with every other comment and really couldn't say it better myself-although i did want to just add that i have always loved your blog and the pretty pictures as well as all of your great makes and words.

I am really sorry to hear you have been experiencing this as you know that I have to except I had to delete my blog and start writing a new one meaning I lost 6 years of writing and building up my network. I am so glad to hear that you are not giving up mostly everyone here is wonderful you always get one person who tries to course upset no matter what you do or where you are. Take lots of care, dee xx

Emma said...

It takes a strong person to stand back up after being knocked over like that. All the lovely comments above show that it's definitely worth sticking around. Sometimes we come across bad people, it always helps me to remember that I am a better person than that. You're a good egg, please don't go :) x

Kandi said...

Honestly some people! I would like to say I am shocked but I am not. Unfortunatley there are awful people in all walks of like and blogger is no exception. I was taught if you can't say anything nice then dont say anything, wouldn't you think more people would do that? I've had a few issues with nasty comments on Instagram but I delete and block and put it straight behind me. Dont let the bas*&%ds grind you down. Keep smiling xxx
