Rafferty’s Rules is currently undergoing a major overhaul and will be closed for the foreseeable future. I thank you for your patience.
Forgot to Post on Monday
It has been poined out by a regular reader that I forgot to post this week’s Miscellaneous Monday. Apologies for that. I had it all typed up. I simply forgot to post it. I shall do so now!
In a classic example of the bad luck that seems to have become a normal part of my life, my internet died right after resurrecting this blog.
Just a quick apology for not posting a Top Ten Tuesday this week. I’ve had problems with my internet. It appears to be working now, though it is incredibly slow, so I will attempt to get a story out tonight… Read More ›
Should I rename this blog?
Just a quick note to let everyone know that I’m updating the sidebar today and tomorrow, then normal blogging will resume on Friday. I’m also considering changing the theme, and possibly the name. Opinions?
Intermittent, then Non-existent Posts
I haven’t been posting a lot, lately. At first, I tried to post intermittently, around recurring illnesses and preparations for my move. The reason I haven’t been posting at all over the past few weeks, though, is a simple one…. Read More ›
I’ve been really sick lately and haven’t felt up to blogging. I haven’t even felt up to writing! The doc has me on antibiotics now, though, so hopefully I’ll be fine to resume both blogging and writing by Friday.
Blogging Resumes Soon
My normal blogging schedule resumes Monday. For the newbies, the schedule consists of: Miscellaneous Monday: Anything that takes my fancy from quotes, to jokes, to opinions — anything goes. Top Ten Tuesday: Top Tens listed from 10 to 1. Fiction… Read More ›
I’ve been quite unwell the past week. I’ve barely been able to muster the energy to read fan-fiction let alone compose blog posts. Even my fiction writing has suffered and, as anyone who knows me would tell you, that’s really… Read More ›
Wow. I seem to have missed a few days. I got so caught up in life that I hadn’t even realised. Sorry, guys. I’ll post Day 15 later today.
Blog on Hold
Hi, just a quick note to let all my loyal readers know that I won’t be posting for a couple of weeks. I really need to put all my efforts into getting on top of this bed bug problem and,… Read More ›
Blogging Resumes Monday
Loyal readers may have noticed that I decided to take a break from blogging over the Xmas / New Year period. I decided that I wanted a completely stress free holiday period this year. This meant no blogging, no writing,… Read More ›
Read you in December
I have just finished clearing out my email and found a backlog of likes and follows for my blog. Normally, I like to check out any WordPress blogs that follow me or like one of my posts. Unfortunately, with NaNoWriMo… Read More ›
Once more unto the breach…
It’s that time again. You know what I’m talking about. The time when I, your friendly neighbourhood lapsed blogger, climb back behind the old keyboard for another attempt at maintaining a blog.
I want to apologise for the lack of content lately. At first I was still feeling a bit seasick, even a few days after returning. After that, it has taken me a bit longer than expected to catch up on… Read More ›
I apologise, but today’s Top Ten Tuesday has been cancelled as I ran out of time before leaving for my cruise. Today’s topic will reappear some time in April.
Recipe will be late
G’day everyone. Just a quick note that the coconut ice recipe will be late as I have run out of some key ingredients and cannot replace them until pay day. It will be posted as soon as I am able,… Read More ›

Post Update 28 Nov 2015
I have begun writing the posts from the week I missed due to no internet access. Some of the topics have proved to be quite time-consuming, though, so I won’t be able to complete them all at once. In any… Read More ›
I would like to apologise for the lack of posts this past week. I have been offline due to an unpaid bill. I am back online now though and I will add (and backdate) the missing posts tomorrow. I need… Read More ›
Finally! I am finally done updating my blog.
I’m finally getting around to creating our family website,but I’m stuck for content. Do you have a family site? If so, what content do you include?
No More Nurture’s Nook
Those of you who follow my tumblr blog, Nurture’s Nook, may have noticed it’s sudden disappearance. It has come to my attention that tumblr now refuses to allow LGBT blogs to appear in search results. As I cannot support any… Read More ›
I haven’t posted any blogs for a while because I haven’t been feeling well. I appreciate your patience in sticking by me and I will try not to disappear without notice again!
I found an awesome alternative to Wordle today. You may have already heard about it, but I hadn’t. Unlike Wordle, you can shape your word clouds really well. Check it out: http://www.tagxedo.com/
I would like to apologize for not posting any content lately. Unfortunately, due to a mix-up with my internet provider, I have been on speeds slower than dial-up and have been unable to access most websites. Thankfully, after many phone… Read More ›
Today I bought the following domain names: http://www.raffertysrules.com http://www.raffertysrules.net http://www.raffertysrules.org I bought them cheap from GoDaddy.com. I would have bought the .com.au domain, but apparently individuals aren’t allowed to own that one. Such a shame! While I was at GoDaddy.com,… Read More ›
Third Speech Missing :-(
Tonight I was going to publish my third speech from the Competent Communicator Manual. I gave this speech on 13 April 2010. The exercise is ‘Get to the Point’. The title is ‘Would You Survive?’ and the time is meant… Read More ›
Officially A Member
I attended my second Toastmasters meeting tonight. I was a little less nervous than last time. Unlike my usual manner, I actually recalled everybody’s names. I also met some others who weren’t present last time. Anyway, another woman and myself… Read More ›
I Hate My Moontime…
I know that, as a pagan, I am supposed to view my moontime as a mystical, magickal time, a time to celebrate being a woman, but I just can’t do it! For me moontime means mess, smell, discomfort, wind, constipation,… Read More ›
