It has been a very long time since I have had opportunity to sit and write a general post. I hope through 2019 they will be a bit more frequent, but I won’t promise!
The last six months or so has passed in an exhausted haze. I won’t bore you all with the details, except to say that I have moved house and whilst we knew we were moving, our date came forward by three weeks and it was a complete panic at the end, coupled with acute & chronic pain, it was quite an ordeal. That said, we are happy and settled. We are still getting ourselves organised and finding our feet, but overall, we are delighted and content. I can see about 3 foot of carpet in my office and there is not too much paper littering my desk, which I have established is pine! (There is a series of piles of paper in a plastic decorative box just to my left, awaiting for me to go through it), assuming I don’t trip over the box.
I am currently sitting at my desk in the early hours of Christmas Day, pondering on my late Mum, Christmas’ of my childhood and just remembering. Regular readers of this blog will know doubt recall that I used to blog daily during Advent. I haven’t this year. I have missed it, but simply have not been at my desk much since we moved and what time I have spent here has been on work or writing that had a deadline. I usually work ahead of deadlines, but this last quarter of 2018 has been frantic.
I feel that something has changed. What I felt was important six months or even longer ago is not necessarily so now, and I cannot recall when that change happened, just that it has. I love our new house and feel totally at peace.
I shall be back, later this week; I need to publish a series of posts that I had written in advance of October and then forgot to publish, so I shall publish those retrospectively. I also have a few other things that I want to share with you.
For now, all that is left from me to say is Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays if you don’t celebrate Christmas).
