Happy New Year!

 

Hello there, and happy new year to you and yours! It’s still close enough to January 1st to wish those you meet Happy New Year isn’t it? Of course it is. Anything else is just rudeness.

Did you have a good one? Christmas that is. I trust you did, and I hope a jolly fat man came and emptied his sack in your living room. And I hope Santa visited you too. *Badoomtish*

This really is just a quickie to let you know there are some changes afoot at ZMG HQ. Small ones. Not biggies. We’re just having a new carpet fitted, if you like, we’re not knocking through and adding an orangery.

Friday StyleFinder will be back very soon for those fashionistas out there, but this year it’ll be ripe with opportunities for YOU to join in. You! Yes you! Not you, you’re a mess. The one next to you. You. YES! YOU! The one reading this page. You look great by the way, love what you’ve done with the hair. Anyhow, you too will be able to link up with FSF, so watch this space for more details.

I’ll be here. ADadCalledMoanyPants. Spouting the same old nonsense. They say with age you gain wisdom and experience. I say bits drop off you, the world goes stark raving mad, and you get more piles. With penile disfunction and senility to come I’m not sure I shouldn’t cart myself off to the knackers yard. So yes, I’ll be here at ZMG with the same gaiety and joie de vivre as always.

Last year we featured some wonderful guest posts on ZMG. Here’s onehere’s another. And whoa there Nelly, here’s another one! Absolute BELTERS one and all, and this year we have more excellent guest bloggers lined up and ready to go. But. We need more. Like zombies we FEAST on your brains!

So we at ZMG invite YOU to join us. If you have something you’d like to show off to the world, your take on fashion, family, love, current affairs, parenting, politics, humour and everything and anything else in between, please send a DM to @adadcalledspen or @zeitmygeistblog and we can do the business, so to speak. Or send us a message via the ZMG Facebook page. Oh, and don’t forget to Like the page too, or we’ll send the boys round and make it look like an accident, YGM?

2016 was, for many, a terrible year. Politics went a bit craycray, and we lost many much-loved public figures. For many people around me it was a year of struggle too, and I hope 2017 is an improvement for them, and for all of us. However 2016 wasn’t a total write-off, and our best blogs of 2016 competition is still going strong to prove just that. Wanna enter? Of course you do. Link up your best post, your favourite post, or a post by a blogger you love, and you could win an Amazon Echo. I have an Echo Dot and believe me when I say they’re fantastic fun, and extremely useful. The competition runs until Jan 31st 2017 so you have plenty of time to enter, and let me just take time to say thank you SO MUCH to those who’ve taken part so far.

So, it’s 2017. What the hell are we waiting for? Let’s grab the year by the short and curlies and show it who’s boss. Are you with me?
