Tempus Fugit…

The days are passing at an alarming rate, rapidly multiplying into weeks, and then months.

It’s hard to remember what day it is let alone what the actual date is… and having just glanced at the date in the top right hand corner of my MacBook – crikey! it’s the 10th of June!   A few weeks ago I found myself wondering how far away Easter was and then remembered that it’d been and gone…first May Bank Holiday / second May Bank Holiday / Jubilee Holiday – both gone.  I see posters for things on at the theatre pasted to walls around the city centre and find myself thinking ‘oooh that might be interesting’ only to realise that they were on weeks or even months ago – they’d just not been pasted over with something new yet.

Best Laid Plans…

Firstly,  apologies to anyone who finds what I write interesting enough to read on a regular basis and has noticed my absence…I’ve been preoccupied.  The days are flying by at an alarming rate and when I look back, I don’t seem to be doing very much with them – apart from working – which is a good thing and something I’m immensely grateful for.  I guess it’s just all part of getting back into the rhythm of things again.

So Much To Do…So Little Time…!

Well I’ve pretty much failed miserably at keeping up to my blog this past week or so…

I’m caught between feeling a little guilty at not meeting my Post A Week challenge and keeping my ‘followers’ engaged, and not having a great deal of time to craft a ‘good’ post…So this one comes with a built-in apology and warning – this post is potentially quite boring and only proves that I’m just like every other working woman, I’ve got a lot to fit in each week to keep the wheels on wagon!

I started a new contract on Tuesday (wahoo!) which has obviously tossed my ‘lots of free time on my hands’ schedule out of the Read the rest of this entry »
