“The best- laid schemes o’ mice an’ men; Gang aft a-gley”

So wrote Scots poet Robert Burns in his poem “To A Mouse”. John Steinbeck later wrote his novella “Of Mice and Men” to echo the theme: The best laid plans of mice and men/Oft go awry.

All this to make the excuse that with a 2-year old in tow, one’s best intentions will often go ‘awry’, and that includes updating one’s blog daily.

It also occurs to me that it’s completely pointless to make and present long-winded excuses (even ones littered with literary references) each time I fail to blog daily. So this will be the last one. Thanks for staying with me. On the next entry, there will be food there, I promise.
