At Last I Can Hang Up My Keypad

I did it. (Don't believe the 'Thursday' at the top of this entry - it's actually 7.00 am Friday 30th November over here in the Antipodes.)

Now for a blogging break.
I will be back ... sometime in 2008, but will no doubt pop in to visit some of you in the meantime.
Meanwhile ... the call of summer-days, white walls, poems, books and other sundry recreational and / or serious endeavours - plus of course, the Big One, Christmas - will be keeping this Chiefbiscuit busy yet, hopefully, crumble-free.

PS There will be the occasional Update posted on my website

Oh dear, there'll be a gap. You've been a daily read. Boo hoo. But I understand. :-) Hurry back. And have a happy, productive time. :-)

I have so enjoyed the company. See you in the new year.

Um ... OK.

(Translation: No, no, no, don't go!)

Catherine said...

That's interesting - my posts put the right date and time for my own location. I think you can change your settings to choose your time zone.
We will miss you - I have something to e-mail you about, though. You're right, blogging takes a lot of time

Belle said...


dear friend. Just came by and got caught up. Love hearing your stories.

Just read the Clare interview. Loved it.

I think you are a wonderful writer and hope to read your prose some day. Ocassionally I pick up your book of poems and read them all once again and wonder what you are up to at the moment.

Hugs, belle

Enjoy your summer. Will miss your entries, your pics, and news of the albatross colony, but I'm sure you'll update us when you decide to make your return. Much success in all your endeavours during your hiatus.

Just stopping by to let you know I miss you. Hope you are enjoying your free time (!?!)

Remiman said...

I did it last year and know what an accomplishment you've done.
Over the holidays is a perfect time to recharge your batteries.
Have a great break and we'll see you when we see you. ;)

wendy said...

but..we already knew that.
enjoy the break. You will be missed.

Hurry back!

Merry Christmas, CB.
I've just had a blogging break so your turn now!

Shameless said...

Ooo, spooky! The blog has gone and changed its template, all by itself. Get back quick, K.

Anil P said...

That 'Coffee Break' reminds me of something else, of another place, another time :)

Cynthia E. Bagley said...

Congrats. Will look for you in 2008.


Tammy said...

Merry Christmas! You will be missed.


Cailleach said...

Happy holidays CB - you've earned it. I really, really love your new book made for weather - it's so damned good, I can't stop re-reading it!

apprentice said...

Have a great Christmas, hope to "see" you on the other side of the bells.

Endment said...

thinking about you and hoping you are having a wonderful time

January said...

Enjoy the time away! See you in 2008.

Avus said...

What you AND "Secret Hill" - it must be catching. It is always the most stimulating blogs that "take a rest". It is because so much goes into them, I suppose.
Anyway - Merry Christmas, happy and healthful 2008.

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you have a lovely vacation - AND I heard about the earthquake over there and I am hoping that you are okay!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
