Regurgitating repetition — 24 Comments

  1. Sounds like you have all the requirements to be a scriptwriter for Coronation Street or Fairly Shitty so.

    • Jayzus no!  That would mean watching them first to get the characters.  A fate worse nor death.

  2. It's what is known euphemistically as a 'Senior Moment' GD. They will become more frequent, and soon you'll be repeating posts that you wrote the week before. I can't even remember my name, sometimes. (Although the Tsipouro may have something to do with that.)

    But on the bright side, the more frequent they become, the less you'll be aware of them happening, and you'll be able to carry on posting in blissful ignorance.

    And I expect we'll all carry on popping in regardless, just so we can give you some grief support – you won't be lonely.

    • I know all about "Senior Moments" thanks very much.  It's a pain the the hole when I drive down to the village for something important and then forget to buy it before coming home again.  On the other hand I can watch films and read books endlessly as I never remember them from previous visits.

      • I can watch films and read books endlessly as I never remember them from previous visits.


        Heh! Yes, that is definitely a bonus!

  3. It hasn't gone unnoticed. I considered mentioning it but my innate politeness forbade me. That and I thought perhaps it was my old mind playing tricks with me. Still well worth the read though. This has got me wondering what your "turnover" of readers is. If you know what I mean.

    • One thing I did notice was that the comments on the old posts were from people who have long since disappeared.  There are very few who have had the courage, patience and persistence to last with this site over the years.  You are one of The Few, tt!

    • I don't know.  Was it?  Can't remember.  I'll post it again next week to be sure, so if you ask the same question then, I'll be able to reply.

  4. You could always bitch about the anti smoking lobbyists………….again………….again…………again………..more Tea Father…….

  5. If you find yourself repeating yourself, it's a sort of writer's block. Two ways you might try to deal with it: 1. Go backpacking around the flatlands of Kildare, Carlow and Offaly for a couple of weeks and try to find the Real Ireland in the B & B establishments & cafes; 2. Research the seed potato industry in Donegal, especially the export destinations. Then write up your findings. Could be some interesting nitty-gritty lying under the surface of normal Ireland somewhere nondescript.

    • PS: Does anything out of the ordinary ever happen in Hacketstown, Kilcock or Mullingar? I think someone should spill the beans. 

    • They're not called flatlands for nothing!  No mountains.  Not even a hill.  How can anyone live where it's all flat and dull?

      And who would look after Herself while I'm gone?

      Or the dog?

      Though I suppose I could bring the dog…..

      • Herself knows how to look after herself when you are out of the house. And after many other matters besides…

        When I am out of my home, on the rambles, the mice and cockroaches take over.

  6. As I've only been following your blog for a few months, Grandad, every story is new and fresh and exciting to me! Ahh, like spring, you know…..gentle breezes, birds singing, lilacs promising to bloom tomorrow. I'll let you know if I still feel the same in December..
