Dusting off the cobwebs

No, dear readers, I don't mean from Zoe's tuppence. I mean from the Blog!

Well - where on earth do I start? For the benefit of those not au fait with me, allow me to (re)introduce myself!

The name's Milady and I'm 40 39 plus inflation and I'm an academic at a backwater university in the UK working in the field of Something Scientific. In 2005 I started a blog (Chez Milady, mark 1) which was rather popular with people who liked my foul language and failed lovelife. A couple of years later, after someone I'd been banged-out by worked out it was me who was blogging about their small penis, I deleted the blog and vanished into the ether. In 2008 I came back (Milady Is A Tramp), briefly, but I ran away again because my Real World Life was hideously busy, I didn't have time to blog and I just stopped. But now I'm back again.

Why? I have no idea to be honest. I just am. So much has changed in the last 18 months since I last posted anything - I'm now a homeowner and a proper grown-up. Part of the reason I stopped blogging back in 2008 was that I entered into a rather serious and proper relationship which was so bloody awfully mundane that I had nothing to write about. It was nice but it was too boring and comfortable and yes - he was hung like a baby rhino - but he was so utterly sweet and kind and boring and I realised a year down the line that I wasn't myself anymore. I'd become...(almost) someone's wife...and I just wasn't ready. So I dusted off my saucy undergarments and got back out there!

I'm not sure how long I'll keep it up this time - but it does feel marvelous to be back!
