Blogging in the Iron Age

While folding laundry (a job I really only can get done with some distraction – leading at times to black on one foot and blue on the other) I was watching the History Channel the other day. BBC had gathered a group of people and placed them in an iron age environment.

I laughed at the interviews from day one. “It’s lovely, it’s peaceful, it’s nice not to have blackberries”.
‘You wait and see, give it a day or two and the romantic side of this will have vanished’, I thought. I also noticed less frustration with my laundry, after all, at least I didn’t have to hand scrub all of it.

That night I went to bed, and after I shut my eyes, images of ‘the iron age villagers’ merged with everything else that’s going on in my life. Before I knew it, I was dressed in cloth and walking barefoot on mud paths.

I answered a question from a fellow villager as follows: “What I miss the most? My blog, or better following up on what my blogger friends have to say. I can’t go to work in the morning before checking in.”

In the next shot, hubby shoes up in 21st century clothing and says: “I was right: you are addicted.”

What a relief to wake up and see hubby sleeping next to me. ‘Ah,….. the secret is still safe.
And now that I’m up, I’d better go check in quickly.’

  1. Friends of mine recently participated in an ‘eco-experiment’ where they had to live completely carbon neutral for a month. They were fine with composting their waste, handwashing their clothes and chopping wood for fuel but they found giving up the internet to be torture (they are bloggers too.) I agree with you, giving up the blog would be tough.

    Selma! Thanks for stopping by, welcome. Well, I guess there are always chisels and stone 😉 .

  2. iron age? you mean they iron their clothes??? 🙂

    Yes, good one, didn’t think of that. Now I know how it all tied together! 🙂

  3. According to the “Are you Blog Addict?” test which I stumbled on,I am 54% addicted to blogging.Hubby thought it should have been a lot more.

    Gosh not sure I want to try that test. Sure would like to see some of my blogging buddies score though 🙂 .
