Oh no!! I'm an idiot!!

Dear Commentors,

I must humbly apologise to you. You see, I get email notifications of new comments. I read and enjoy the comments straight away. Then I move the emails into a folder labelled 'Blog', and when I have a spare 10 minutes or so, I go back to them, follow the links to people's profiles, and visit their blogs in return.

I just accidentally emptied my folder labelled 'Blog'. And because I didn't realise what I'd done, I also emptied my 'Deleted' folder, so can't even rescue them from there. Which means that some of you didn't get the return visit and comment you deserve. Even going back through my posts won't help much because I can't remember where I'd got up to....

I'm so sorry. I'm an idiot.



I hope this Christmassy picture by The Girl lifts your mood a little and thus helps you to forgive me xx

I'm glad I'm not the only numpty in blogland Mel!! Nevermind though - worse things happen :)

Great picture by The Girl. And you are NOT an idiot. These things happen and I'm sure all your commentors will survive. I've been having a "delete party" here too - my inbox was getting quite unmanageable!

One of those days! Today I have been walking around with the work keys in my pocket, faithfully promising I had put them back in the drawer. There were other things that happened today, but that gives you an idea :)

Jessica said...

Mel, I PROMISE you won't go to blogging hell for this!! XOXO!!

Amy said...

Well ..... The Girl's picture seems to balance out her mother's deletion problems ;-) Don't worry Mel - all will be ok!

Lee said...

No forgiveness required! We all mess up ... and during the holidays we are especially distracted :)

No problem. We all have those kind of days. I have them more than normal.

Thanks for the smile. :o)

Very cute picture! Don't worry, accidents happen. I suspect they'll all be back to see what else you've been up to just the same!

oh dear, technology does let us down sometimes. the girl is obviously following in the crafty expressionist mummy vein then. so adorable.
never mind about missing out on visits. u are a bust working mother with too much to catch up with..........plus cooking. planning on getting out the mince meat later!

I can only forgive you if you find me another delicious recipe to try out ;-)

Deb said...

Well, my dear, you are not the first one to accidentally delete something with no turning back! I'd say that makes you human, not an idiot!

And, I love the idea of saving the comment emails in a folder until you can respond! I've been trying to keep up myself and I think this is a great idea for keeping track!

No worries, and thanks for the idea. I also follow my comments but just do the old-fashioned brute force way of going to visit. Since I've been out of town, I've been missing visiting the blogosphere.
