Hello, Hello, I'm Back Again

Although having been accused of Glitterite tendencies in the past by less savoury elements of the Thanet blogging community, maybe I should rethink that headline.

So, you may well be asking questions like: 'What about Club ECR?', 'Why isn't he festering in jail?' and 'How did those big holes get in my Warburtons Seeded Batch Loaf?' Er, well, maybe not the last one.

The truth is, dear reader, that after a long, dark night of the soul (courtesy of P&O Cruises) I have become a convert to the Church of Responsible Blogging. Yes, I know it sounds like a one way ticket to Dullsville, but there you have it. There will be no more mocking, negativity, or, indeed, gloating on this blog. Sordid comments about pillars of our local community will be deleted. End of. And if any pillars do find themselves objecting to what I write, they can do what other sensible people have done in the past and rectify the situation via the comments facility, or by emailing me. The address is at the top of the page. If you don't want your email mentioned on this blog, just mark it NOT FOR PUBLICATION.

Not that I have received any such communication recently, or found rozzers from Her Majesty's Metropolitan Police knocking on my door having followed a trail of, um, Warburtons breadcrumbs. No. What you see before you is a chastened, wiser, and hopefully more Christian millionaire celebrity. Amen to that.

PS: Just to prove I've changed, I've even got rid of those pointless exclamation marks!

May I be the first to welcome you home Adrian. Ooo, sorry, that slipped out.

Anyway it's been very dull around here without you. Glad you're back.

So nice to see you back again

Captain Dog said...

Welcome back sir! I thought we'd lost you forever.

Eric said...

Good to have you back!

The old ECR may well have made some off-colour quip about not being able to get rid of him that easily.

However, now that my eyes have been opened by the CRB, all I can say is that I humbly acknowledge your kind words of appreciation. Hallelujah.

Good to see you back, life has been a little dull without you, coming back to life in the church of responsible blogging sounds a tad bloodcurdling.

Now, now. That wasn't in the spirit of Christian blogging, was it? I will say a prayer for you.

Linda said...

Welcome back to the fold , we have missed you all so much!! I still refer to the fact that blogging is a way of interpreting your own personal views and if people don't like it they don't have to read it!!

Bertie Biggles said...

Glad to see you back! Time for OVIT to see the MattB light and that other blog,; what was its name? Thanet 'something'. I can then put down the key-board and return to obscurity.

Amy Jones said...

Good to see thanet's best blog back up and running. Couldn't help noticing that your link to Thanet Tree Huggers is missing. I hope we haven't upset you!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Thanks Amy. And your link is where it's always been - under 'Kent's Ramsgate Peninsula'.

Now that I'm a reformed character, I find very little upsets me!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Oh, and Bertie, thanks too. I have been enjoying Thanet Strife. No need for you to put your keyboard down, even if OVIT and that other blog do return, methinks. You've made a fine, if slightly eccentric, contribution to the Thanet blogoshpere!

Bertie biggles said...

Thanks for your nice comments, Dickie old chap! Eccentric?

Eastcliff Richard said...

Sorry Bertie, it was just meant to be an off-the-cuff reference to all the 'woof woof' stuff. Well, perhaps I was barking up the wrong tree, eh?

Bertie Biggles said...

Perhaps not,my dear chap!
