Me thinking aloud! Its the time of year perhaps. There's always this big space in late Dec/early Jan when little of interest seems to happen. Of course, it could be that my disconnection with Welsh politics, following my ejection from the National Assembly 20 months ago is reaching a stage when I've nothing worthwhile to say. All I seem to be doing is commenting on the big UK story of the day. A lot of other bloggers do that a lot quicker, and better than I do. And there seem to be so many subject areas which have become 'out of bounds' - anything to do with the Welsh Conservatives Party, anything remotely sexually suggestive (which is the basis of much that amuses me) and family stuff (because we are such a very private lot). Whatever, I'm questioning whether I should keep this blog going - certainly on a daily basis. Also, I've noticed that comments are changing - more looking to score a point (against me or Lembit), and fewer wanting to engage with what I'm trying to say.
The only reason I blog is because I quite like writing. To be honest, I do it for me. So if I start to question whether I should, I could be reaching the time to stop. And there are so many books that I want to read. And there's the not inconsiderable matter of a General Election coming up. I reckon that we're in with a chance of winning Montgomeryshire, so I really do have to give it my best shot - which involves writing press releases etc. on a daily basis. But I'm going to Cardiff on Thursday, where I'm hoping to catch up on where the devolution process is at. That might inspire me. Anyway, I'll carry on with a post a day on national issues - a bit boring but it helps me think through my opinions. And there will always be something relating to that most wonderful of human emotions, love, which I will want to include. This blog wishes Basil the noisy cock and his lovely Bonnet a long and happy life together.
