Never Fear, D'Oub is here!
My darlings, my darlings, I am back!
Back from the wilderness where I have wandered, lost and bereft.
And I mean that metaphorically. I have, of course been sitting on de sofa in my beloved semi-detached house in West Dublin.
The wilderness, sadly, has been a literary one. Well. No, that's not quite right. I have been writing. The new novel has been started. And a few poems too.
But I haven't been sharing. Why? It's nothing you did. No, it is me. Not you. I set the standard too high in my mind. I wanted to make you laugh, smile, think, muse. I wanted every post from this blog to change your life. Rock your world. And when I couldn't deliver? I shake my head, but, I have to admit, I gave up :( Oh, the shame, the shame, the shame. I failed you.
Can you ever forgive me?
And I guess, while I'm here, baring my soul, I should confess. I have cheated on you. Oh forgive me! Forgive me! I have, gulp, another blog!!! A mistress. She was just the shoulder to cry on that I needed. So undemanding. So unconcerned with whatever nonsense I wanted to whitter on about. But, you know about her now. Maybe you two can be friends? I hope so...
So, what brought me back here? Why has The D'Oub returned to the fold? Well, for one, I know that I was wrong. I should never have left you, no matter how hard it got. I should have stuck it out through thick and thin. I understand that now. But more importantly I have a message. A message from one who never turned her back on her craft! One who today, as I type this message is preparing for her anointing as the biggest and best among us....
Blogospshere, friends, treasured confidantes, I return, the prodigal blogger, to offer the fatted calf to the constant, the devoted, Louise Phillips!!! Tomorrow she will visit my lowly hovel, and spread her wondrous blessing to all! Hallelujah!!!
Yes, D'Oub is back and it's all going to be okay.
(PS In case that was all a little unclear, Louise Phillips, author extraordinaire is visiting tomorrow as part of her brillo Red Ribbons blog tour! Catch her interview here and simultaneously on my other, other blog, TríonaWalsh, where I pretend to be a serious author! lol!)
