I’ve had a few things going on just lately that have knocked me off focus a little.

My eldest son (11) had keyhole surgery to have his gall bladder removed 3 weeks ago, and first we had the upcoming worry of the surgery itself, followed by having him at home for 2 weeks. Two weeks of little distractions and short working days as a result.

No sooner was he back at school on Monday than our youngest (4) came down with a fever which turned into a stinking cold and last night into a rasping wheeze and cough – that was a trip to the doctors today, no chest infection. Of course 4 year olds need a lot of attention even when they’re well, so it’s not been a very productive week for me so far.

Plus in the last 3 weeks there have been various little distractions like the old lady who pulled out from a side road right in front of me so suddenly that I had no time to stop. The final collision was about 5 miles an hour (she was fine) and she accepted full responsibility and has paid for the damage repairs, but it meant more time out, and dropping the car off tomorrow to have a new bonnet, bumper and grille fitted.

The list goes on. It’s like something or someone has been deliberately putting barriers to work in my way. Really. That’s how it feels to me anyway. And I’ve had trouble getting to sleep at night just to compound it all, so I’ve been waking up drained. I think it may just be this time of year, I know I always feel much more refreshed in January and February.

In spite of that, I’ve managed to do some little things that I think are quite good, the important ones which are:-

o Finalise and submit the AdSpurt site to ClickBank for approval.
o Show my 11 year old how to create IPK mini-sites.
o Sign up for the two big UK affiliate programmes to use with Info Product Killer price comparison.

And on that last one, I have another blog post I’ll make all about IPK.

So my apology is to all those people who have “dropped through the cracks”.

If I haven’t answered your support ticket, or contacted you about a business deal, or been a little distracted or absent from my blog, I deeply apologise. Especially to the people who have patiently waited for an answer to their support request.

I’m sorry.
