*pokes head round the door* Is this thing still on? Oh, it is; wonderful!
I realised around Christmas that I haven’t blogged in months, which truth be told I’m a little ashamed about, but I thought I should check in and assure you, dear reader, that I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I have in fact been pretty busy with uni, family and work life, which has been blimmin’ hard to balance this semester! It’s amazing how demanding my second year studies have become after the joyride of first year, but I’ve actually enjoyed knuckling down and getting stuff done and have some really nice grades as a result. I’m so lucky to have such a lovely husband who is happy to keep the small child entertained while I’m working/studying and said small child is equally wonderful for understanding that sometimes Mummy needs to get this stupid bit of code working before she can play Minecraft (don’t talk to me about dictionaries on web services ever).
Now that the festivities are over and done with, however, I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into a couple of new projects and spending some proper quality time with the family sans the rest of the family. How come Christmas always sees me spending far too much time and money on making others happy instead of focusing on me and mine, which I’m pretty sure is what you’re meant to do at this time of year? Anyway, it’s all over – hurray! Well, for now…
As I’m writing this post at stupid o’clock and not feeling particularly compos mentis, I’ve decided not to ramble too much and write a proper post when I’m not so tired. In the meantime, here is a gratuitous picture of Greebo the kitten, aka the 4 am Attention Seeker.
