I know i have taken a little break from my blog, and in some ways its been a case of nothing exciting to blog about, or a deliberate act to stay away from the PC..
I have been thinking for a little while that social media obviously has its good points but has lots of Bad points..
Years ago i used to have some form of life, i had a relationship, I had kids that i took places (still do), i have had dogs that i took for walks over my life time (no longer have a dog due to relationship breakdown and rental property, i used to go horse riding as a young child, i love photography, riding bikes, swimming, going to the gym ect.. Now things started to go pear shaped some years ago in my relationship if i am honest although at the time the man in my life at the time convinced me all was ok, and we were not like other people..
Then along came the likes of a PC which was only uses like a word processor then more of a search engine, but the more my relationship went wrong (in a growing appart not suitable for one another) things like Facebook, Plurk, my space now twitter all became a alternative life to the real life..
And i sit here wondering is the internet brainwashing me that the false world is better than the real world.. No of course its not,, but i find social media is draining my life away…
But also i fine some media like genes reunited a very good source of media for getting info i need for my family tree so its a good thing and very positive as is Ebay and other auction sites but it all stops you from getting out and about, you can even food shop on line without the hassle kids wanting stuff, but i hardly shop online unless i am ill and can’t get out then is good, but i love to look about the hopes, it also give kids live skills too..
I hav a few friends but not many that i interact with mainly cause i am in a bubble right not and not sure what i want out off live,,other than makes sure my kids are ok..
Being Single is not easy,, so much needs to be done from Cooking, washing, cleaning, ironing not to mention cutting the grass and weeding and yes i do get help from my eldest whom i could not do without.. his been amazing… but i find i don’t have time for everything, then things get built up, and then i sink back into the computer…
having said all this i am not to worry about anything, cause i think considering we as a little family unit are doing quite well.. a mix of both real life and virtual keeps us sane..
