a change is gonna come

So…..I’ve been blogging for over five years now. Many of you have been with me through the loss of Stephen,

two house moves, three holidays with other bloggers,

daisyfae, nursemyra and dolce in Greece

the rise and fall of Corset Fridays, the problem I had with a cyberstalker, my son’s health issues……

The time has come for more change. I’m moving into the castle with queenwilly and The King. And after that we’re off to Portugal to stay in a windmill for 3 weeks. Blogging is going to have to take a back seat for quite a while. I’ll still pop up now and then but things will be sporadic until my return.

Feel free to rummage in my archives while I’m gone. Thanks for all the visits and the comments, nursemyra xx

  1. Now if only I lived a bit closer I coud help you pack.

    • If you lived closer we would find better things to do together than pack

  2. I’m sure you will be treated “right royally” in your new abode.
    All the best to you. Pop in again when you’re ready. πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks Dinah. I get a right royal welcome from the two hounds every time I open the door with more of my stuff. They’d love to get their snouts and paws into my corset collection

  3. Nooo-ooooo!

    • don’t worry, I’ll still pop in to your blog now and then. See how the jam making is going on.

  4. A windmill?! Marvellous – have a fabulous trip and good luck with the move, Nursemyra.

    • thanks bluebee, I’m particularly excited about the windmill.

  5. Have a wonderful time, Ms Nurse! And I look forward to erratic/erotic postings.

    • they’ll probably be more erratic than erotic but I’ll do my best Scarlet

  6. much, much love to you as you set sail! you’ve been my muse, friend and delicious travelmate, and we’re not done! would love to be there to help pack! xoxoxo

    • No, we’re not done by any means daisyfae. We need another holiday with dolce one day too.

  7. Have a lovely time and I’ll use the time wisely to retrospectively go back a bit further into the hospital archives. All the best x

  8. Journey, innit? Good travels, ma’am!

  9. Nursie, I’ve been feeling neglectful of late but I’m glad I caught this in time to say bon voyage. I hope you have a pleasant break and I hope to see you back sometime soon. I love your work – there is always something guaranteed to amuse and edify on these pages.

  10. Have fun in your windmill!

  11. Bon voyage! Happy travels. Safe landings. Not kidding…I initially misread daisy’s “delicious travelmate” comment as “delicious transvestite!”

    • … so did I.

      • Ooops… almost dropped the biggest ‘hidden candy secret’ ever, eh? trust me. she’s all woman!

  12. You are going to have a right royal ball I’m sure…I love coming to your site, and will enjoy the sporadic re-visits…Have a great time and as they say “So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish”

  13. Enjoy the rest. We will be here when you return!

  14. Have a wonderful holiday and I’ll look forward to some titillating posts when you get back!

  15. Nice sum up.

    Go forth, young lady!

  16. Porto and Ugal, the two mystic horses … Fado and wine is what blinks up in my brain. And the school Henry built for the explorers. And terrible holes in the autobahn.
    Travel well, return safe, dear Myra.

    Two house moves within five years? Jessas …!

  17. Have a good holiday nurse, a windmill sounds like fun! See you when you get back.

  18. Have a marvelous time! I’ll be here when you return.

  19. Cue the Go-go’s, don’t do anything i wouldn’t do.

  20. Aw, man! I mean… you certainly deserve a bit of R&R from all your work at the Gimcrack, but I’m sure going to miss you, N.M.
    I hope you have a wonderful trip, though. It does make me feel a bit better to know you will be staying in a windmill. That’s just so… perfect. I’ll probably still have to rummage through your archives out of withdrawal, you know.

  21. Hope the move goes well and the holiday is a corker. Haste ye back!

  22. Change is usually good and always interesting, and holidays in windmills in Portugal would be both good and interesting I’d imagine. Have a fine time.

  23. Have a wonderful time. It will give me time to catch up on some of your previous amazing articles.

  24. Have a pleasant a safe visit. Put money and passport in that corset to foil the pickpockets !

  25. Oh no, what are we going to do without you?

    Have fun at the windmill. And at the castle.

  26. Have a great trip, myra.
    I will, of course, have a another feeble imitation corset post on Friday.

  27. What an exciting change. I hope it treats you well, as you deserve it, you lovely, intelligent, fascinating woman, you. πŸ™‚ We’ll check in from time to time and see if there are any updates.

  28. Have a great trip and break! And stay away from those windmill blades!

  29. I think I arrived roughly when all these events were done. Only the cyber stalker sounds familiar to me.

    Have fun on that trip though, I’ll be heading out on one myself soon.

  30. I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

  31. Will be hunting through the archives and missing your new stuff but will be here when you return. Have a blast.

  32. Good luck with everything! You have been a blinding light in a dull world!

  33. Sounds like fun. Post a few pictures now and then. I’d like to see the windmill. Oh, and don’t kill anyone while you’re there. I hear the Portuguese legal system is sort of slow.

  34. I think it’s fair to say that we’re pretty excited about the coming events, but fear not avid readers, I will put in a few royal commands from time to time. I might even be the photographer once again in Portugal…

    The King

  35. hope you have a fantastic time you deserve too xjen

  36. I hope everything is going well for you and will continue so, in windmill or no. Definitely I will be checking by here for any updates that you can muster.

  37. Thanks for all you’ve done here. This hospital stay has been thoroughly enjoyable in so many ways. Bon voyage and all the best to you and your family.

    ♥ πŸ˜€

  38. Wow, sounds kinda final… hope not. I know how it goes though, so enjoy… or make the best of it. I hope to hear from you now and again.

  39. Wow. Huge. You holidayed with other bloggers??! That’s an amazingly wonderful outcome from blogging πŸ™‚

    Good luck up at the windmill – I can’t even imagine!

    I didn’t know about Stephen. I just read your tribute. Bless you, keeping on going.

  40. I’m busy rummaging through your archives. Most entertaining. The things one discovers in unlikely nooks and crannies….

  41. Bon voyage–and I look forward to your return!

  42. May the time away be lovely but I’ll miss popping in and having my jaw drop…

  43. Enjoy your well-deserved break and change in surroundings nursemyra. It’s been a pleasure and joy.

  44. With the state of the Portuguese economy you could probably buy the Windmill and live permanently in Europe. Hope you have a great holiday. I have enjoyed your blog immensely even though it was born out of great tragedy
    Best wishes

  45. Hope you have a very enjoyable and very relaxing vacation from the real world. Looking forward to the day when you return to the blogging world, even if it winds up being sporadic.

  46. Enjoy your break, dearest. Looking forward to your “cumming” back. I’ll pop in from time to time to see if you’re back yet.

  47. Reading through the “good wishes” for your holiday, tey sound like eulogies, some. Be glad to see you get back!

  48. Hey…does your impending exit to Portugal have anything to do with my impending visit to Australia?

  49. I enjoy(ed) your blog,I hope you feel-hear the muse of the blog once more.
    “Writers similarly disagree also concerning the number of the Muses; for some say that there are three, and others that there are nine” wikipedia.

  50. Have a good move…And trip!!

  51. All the very best to you as you embark on this new journey and adventure, darlin’. Don’t stay away too long …we’d all miss you πŸ™‚

  52. Here’s to the brightest of futures! Sending lotsa love your way ALWAYS!!!!!!!!

  53. Wow what a great holiday idea, I would
    definitely enjoy a windmill treat Nursey Myra
    and although I will miss your blogging, I
    wish you a very happy time away with your
    fangtastic friends πŸ™‚ Hope you call in before
    you go as this is the only link that you will
    have to my Space since all the glitches over
    the weekend 😦

    Have fun now and be naughty πŸ˜‰

  54. Have a wonderful vacation.

  55. just saw THAT photo. kinehora myra.

  56. Hangin’ it up or hangin’ out? I don’t stop by often, but when I do, I stop and stay a while. You’ve got a unique thing here, and I’d hate to see it go away. Honest.

  57. I have first withdrawal syndroms …

  58. …so what you’re saying is, it’s official, there’s absolutely nothing to blog about in Portugal.

    …putting your work on display is scary every time you do it. it necessitates developing some kind of thick skin because you’re inviting people to judge things that are often really personal.
    and I really like your blog πŸ™‚

    That was you, back in 2007, on my blog. Not to be too sappy, but every time I saw your avatar pop up on my blog it meant a lot to me.

    There must be something worth taking a photo of in Portugal, when you find it, post it.

    And in the end we shall achieve in time
    The thing they call divine
    And all the stars will shine for me
    When all is well and well is all for all
    Forever after
    Living in the meantime wait and see

    We love the all the all of you
    Where lands are green and skies are blue
    When all in all we’re just like you
    We love the all of you

    And when I cry for me I cry for you
    With tears of holy joy
    For all the days still to come
    And did I ever say I’d never play
    Or fly toward the sun
    Living in the meantime something’s gone

    We love the all the all of you
    Where lands are green and skies are blue
    When all in all we’re just like you
    We love the all of you

    Well that sounds fine so I’ll see you sometime
    Give my love to the future of the humankind
    Okay, okay, it’s not okay.
    While it’s on my mind there’s a girl that fits the crime
    For a future love dream that I’m still to find
    But in the meantime.

    We love the all the all of you
    Where lands are green and skies are blue
    When all in all we’re just like you
    We love the all of you

  59. Hope you’re having fun, NM! I’m so jealous, Portugal is on my wish list. I’m dying to see pics of this windmill!

  60. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and I shall certainly rummage in the archive. I miss some posts because I’m so sad that I can’t figure out Google reader and I can’t follow you like I do on Blogger.

    I DO hope you will be back before TOO long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your blog is one of the most original and unusual

  61. Myra: I don’t know why but some of your recent comments vanished into Blogger’s spam folder and I’ve only just discovered them. Rest assured I wasn’t deleting them!

  62. How fabulous! Enjoy!! And touch base soon xox

  63. Hey are you having lots
    of fun yet Nurse Myra πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    Androgoth XXx

  70. Thanks for all the intelligent fun. Look after you and yours! Am moving into a new phase myself. May we all be lucky and blessed!!

  71. OK we got back yesterday, I’ll see if I can talk her into a little update!

    The King

  72. Ah fuckery … where are you? I mean Portugal is not that big and they have internet access there, it’s Europa you know? Next is Spain with a lot to discover too (think Toledo) and there’s always the Mediterranean Sea – but there’s only one Nurse Myra and we would like to understnd what she sees. Or shows, hem hem … Anyway: You do what you like and all will be well, but give us a little update, dear. And if you come to Franconia I’ll suck your big toe.

  73. Yes, I’m back. And back at work. Things are still a bit hectic there and I’m not back into the blogging vibe just yet…. xx

  74. *slides two margaritas with an extra shot of Cujo*—-> Nursem
    How ’bout now?

    • Margaritas and rabid dog???

      • Come on Ms Nurse, you have been malingering on the sidelines for far too long, spin us a yarn!

      • Tequila = Gusano Rojo = Cujo to me. Sounds better than “Red Worm.”

  75. She’s alove!

  76. πŸ™‚

  77. Goodness me. Been too long, don’t you think? I need that extra – don’t make me come after you.

  78. er, sorry for the omission —- spark, ooomph, smile —- pick one.

  79. Ooh, just noticed that Nurse Myra is back in town. I wonder what she’s cooking up for us?

  80. I come back for a visit, and this is what I’m presented. *Sad Face*

  81. Hey come back already πŸ™‚ You’ve been gone too
    long and everyone is missing you Nurey Myra πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    Androgoth XXx

  82. I keep coming in through the cat flap but the bowl is still empty.

    It’s your lap I miss though … oh the wonderful lap.

  83. I hope things are rad, wherever you are.

  84. Okay, we’ve seen enough of those knickers and stockings. Oh wait, perhaps we haven’t….

    • Well I am still enjoying them πŸ™‚ lol


  85. Hi Nurse Myra I hope that you are enjoying a very good start to your week my friend and that soon you will be adding something new to your Space πŸ™‚ Be good, be wicked and above all behave yourself, if you like I mean? πŸ˜‰ lol

    Androgoth Xx

  86. Just peeping in, honeybunny, waiting for you to be ready for further unveilings, oh Isis …

  87. I think Myra must have migrated to Facebook….

    • Nope. Just hanging out having a good time πŸ™‚

  94. Myra, are you ever going to get back on? I miss you still!

  95. Congrats on five year…Blogging is ebbs and flows. Like life.

  99. Found your blog and you’re taking a break, just my luck! Hope you enjoy the break and get back to blogging soon πŸ™‚

  100. It has been more than a decade since the wonderful Nursemyra stepped outside for a break from her blogging. I still miss her wisdom.
