Five On Friday

Five on Friday has come around once again.  As you will have noticed and be well aware yourself!  Today I have five lots of, well, nothing really to share!!!

It seems that I am flat out of things to write about.  Oh no!!! 

Don't worry, I am sure that the words will soon flow again, it is just slim pickings right now.

Here are five reasons why (she says as she scrapes the bottom of the very bottom barrel) :-

I am still distracted by the incident with Man even though nothing further has happened.

I haven't crocheted anything for myself lately, it has all been "work" related.

When I am doing things for myself it is my tapestry and showing you progress on that isn't very exciting - although it is coming along well and I will show it when it is finished.

I would talk about my book, but it isn't very exciting and I am not sure why I am continuing with it.  I should just toss it in the charity bag really.

Worst of all I don't even have a fifth reason!

Sorry about this dismal post and the dismalness of everything this week.  I will buck my ideas up and come springing back very soon I am sure.  After all spring surely has to arrive at some point doesn't it?  I need to be outside and seeing to the garden but it is still too darned cold.

For now I will shut up and leave you in peace!  I hope that you will still share some exciting things, I will look forward to reading them.

Hope you have a good weekend and that all is well with you!!

Amy

p.s. my bloggy pal Anne from Frayed at the Edge and I are trying to use my new word squibbly lots so that we can get it into common usage and then into the dictionary.  So that you too can use it Squibbly means when your eyes go all cross eyed and get confused when you are trying to work out how many hexies you need for your hexi quilt and the chart you are using is making you count wrongly!!  Do try and use it.  Unless the explanation made you go squibbly too of course.  Anne is also working on the word sconnage.  This is much easier to explain.  It is your favourite scone of the day.  You might find it easier to use sconnage.  It is also easier to eat them too!!

  1. oh Amy I'm not surprised, you keep coming up with such amazing posts for Five on Friday that it is no wonder you've drawn a blank, especially when you've had a lot going on. I don't doubt you will come back in full force shortly, as you say, spring is imminent and the gardens will start coming to life very soon, sure to cheer us all up :)

  2. Hi Amy, I love reading your blog even when you don't have lots to write about. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and don't get too squibbly working on all your projects! My best to you, Pat xx

  3. I'm suffering from lack of imagination inspiration this week too. Hope next week is full of good things.

  4. Love the new words - I think I'll get working on the 'sconnage' one right away. xx

  5. Good morning Amy,

    Have a joy in your day, although it is still cold and grey (with us too)

  6. Thank you for your faithfulness in putting up the link for Five on Friday and your regular blog posts, Amy, despite the ups and downs of life. We all want you to be well in yourself and to know that you are okay. You're a busy lady just quietly getting on with things. Take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  8. I'm afraid it has to be cheese sconnage! The fruit ones make me go all squibbly! Hope something exciting happens over the weekend x

  9. You are clearly going through a period of squibbliness. It sometimes happens when you've not been well and it's been a long wet winter. Hopefully the sun will shine this weekend for you and a little sparkle will come back. B xx

  10. Hope the weekend gets rid of your dismalness and you don't get too squibbly trying to think of blogging bits. Have some sconnage, whether it be with cream on top (Cornish) or jam on top (Devonish) and cheer yourself up. Take care.

  11. Hi Amy, sorry that the cat's got your tongue! Mine very nearly got mine, too :) Some weeks are just better than others and sometimes there is just nothing to say. It's these dreary late winter days......I find myself rushing out any time the sun shines, only to have it disappear behind a dark cloud once more, matching my mood. Hugs xo Karen

  12. Love the word sconnage, it is one of my downfalls I like a sweet scone with jam and cream, equally I like a cheese one with soup. OK I am a fan of any sconnage. Take care.

  13. These blank times happen, but it means productivity is just around the corner. I love the word sconnage, and as a concept lots of scone would make me very happy. My blog post today should have been called cakeage lol

  15. Anne and I have been blogging friends for a long, long time and "sconnage" is a brilliant word. It's one of those words that just says it all, really! :oD

    ReplyDelete
  16. Of course, if you could come up with three more neologisms (new words!) you'd have five there. I definitely like the sconnage bit, and would choose cherry, I think. As for squibbly, it might be a little too specialist for my useage - though trying to sort out my car tax recently and filling in the online form for that 'opera singer' bloke made me feel rather similar!

  17. Hi Amy, for a sconnage it has to be a lovely National Trust fruit one mmm.... I think you have had a similar sort of week to me. I guess it happens! I hope you have a lovely, quiet, restorative weekend. Take care lovely and thank you for hosting xx

  18. I love the word squibbly and sconnage too - our sconnage yesterday was of the cheesy variety. Do take care, Amy and look after yourself, thank you for providing the FoF link today. Have a peaceful and gentle weekend doing all the things you like to do:)

  19. I have been having dreadful difficulty signing in to my Google account since I've changed to Windows 10. Don't know why that is, but I think I've managed it now.
    Anyway, my comment is:
    I shall do my best to mention squibbly as often as I can. Perhaps you can also use wabbit (feelng weak and watery, as in just after an illness or a cold), and fonkle (this is a lovely word coined by a friend, which relates to faffing about, as in "stop fonkling with that TV remote and hand it over!")
    Sconnage ... well, Crimson Kettle has already mentioned a cheese sconnage, but I suggest it's a surfeit of scones in the scone factory, i.e. a sconnage!

  20. This happens to all of us Amy - I had long patches last year where things dried up too.
    The juices will start to flow again in time.
    Thank you for hosting.

  21. we have soup last night with lots of cheese sconnage xx yum x

  22. I think we all have weeks where not much has happened or things have happened that we aren't appropriate to share on a blog and it can be difficult to make regular posts. I think a post about why you are struggling to post is a very good post!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sconnage is a word we use in our family; my husband makes the best scone ever. I know what you mean about lack of anything interesting to report and sometimes I don't even feel like writing about what might be interesting! I'm learning to wait until the mood takes me and not worry about it too much. Have a fabulous weekend Amy. Sam x

  24. I think we all suffer at times struggling for inspiration on our posts - if it wasn't for having a weekend away and making that last through 3 blog posts I would be struggling too. I am sure once the Spring and better weather get here and we get out and about more we will find lots more to blog about. Thank you so much for my lovely heart garland that I won on your Anniversary Five On Friday post, it arrived this week and will prominently displayed. xx

  25. I hope the book gets better, I tend to do the same and struggle on when I'm not enjoying something, though to be honest, it doesn't happen very often. I think that's because I usually know the things I like and I tend not to be very adventurous when it comes to choosing a different type of book to read.

  26. Not to worry Amy! I love your new word and how it rolls around the tongue!
    Thanks for hosting!

  27. We all hit the bottom from time to time. Have a good weekend.

  28. Hoping for Spring to inspire your squibbly mind with lots of good stuff to share. Have a wonderful weekend!

  29. Okay, here's your next new word. Sometimes I get all "niggly" and just have to stop at the thrift store because something tells me the yellow teapot I need is there waiting for me. I really do need a yellow teapot for the library teas, but the only one I've found was $96, and that's not in my budget. This tells me that I've not yet passed a thrift store with a yellow teapot or I'd have gone all niggly. So if you get that urge to go in a certain shop, or go a different route, or make that phone call, do it. The little niggle that's making you all "niggly" is leading you in the right direction.

  30. Glad it's not just me who has moments of no inspiration! But I did enjoy your post anyway. Love the new words, I'm always making up words of my own. I shall definitely try and get sconnage into the conversation. CJ xx

  31. I can't believe you are at a loss for words and for pictures! We do get to that point, don't we?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm sure we've all been there Amy, I know I have. Sometimes I don't post because I think my life has been humdrum and nobody wants to read about that, do they??? But the blogs I like the most are the ones that keep it real. Don't fret, your blogging mo-jo will return. x

  33. Sorry you are having such a dry spell! There will probably be twenty things you could write about next week! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. You deserve a break busy Lady - and every right to run out of "things" at the moment. Lol
    I LOVE your PS though the best. I think "sconnage" should totally be a word in the english language. Haha! Love it - and squibbly too! You crack me up!!
    Have a lovely and Springy weekend!! xoxo

  35. Amy, those things happen to all of us, so we certainly understand how it is. Beautiful crochet project in your previous post.
    Take care of yourself
    and enjoy the weekend

  36. I know you are feeling a bit down Amy but I have to say your post made me smile - the fact that your book isn't great and that you haven't even a fifth reason! Hope you have a good weekend, and sending my best wishes

  44. You do make me smile :-). I like your new words. I'm not surprised the incident with Man has unsettled you. It would me too. Let the dust settle then put other happier thoughts in your head my dear. Xx

  45. So glad I'm not the only one who sometimes has nothing to show for the week. I hope you find this week more to your liking.
