The Start of the Scraplet Blog

I reckon 2021 is going to be a mental year. Just a hunch, like. It's not been a great run up to it in general but we've got to be optimistic. Something good has to happen eventually though, right?

To give myself a little bit of structure over the next 12 months I've decided I'm going to try and keep a blog - document the reality of being the Chief Scrapleteer in these strange times. I know what you're saying - it's not the 90's anymore, who the fuck reads blogs? - but frankly I wish it was the 90's, so I'll do what I want. Fuck off.

I've made a little promise to myself to write for ten minutes every day and basically see what happens. If nowt else, it'll be nice for me to look back and reflect on what I've been up to. The last 8 or so months since I developed the Scraplets gave been a bit of a blur, to be honest, and I kind of wish that I'd started a blog at the start of this adventure, but there's fuck all point in regrets, and a new year seems a good time to stick a flag in the sand and give it a go. So far I've only used Instagram to record the life of the Scraplets but there's so much other stuff I've wanted to document (probably more for myself than anything) and a blog seems a sensible choice for all that. I don't want to be cluttering up my timeline with process pictures and videos, that's what this is for. And, most likely, my gobshite opinions on all sorts of things when I run out of actual content to post.

It's going to be an interesting 12 months, that's for sure. Covid, Brexit - it's all going to rumble on and affect us in ways that we never imagined. As a small business owner, I have literally no idea what's going to happen next week or month so the next year just seems, well, unfathomable. There's almost no point worrying, as so many things are currently out of our hands. We've all just got to roll with the punches and see what actually happens as a result of the madness we're all living through at the moment.

I fully plan on staying hunkered down in the Scraplet Compound for the forseeable future.  It's served me well so far through this pandemic and, quite honestly, I've got nowhere else to go.
