Hey folks, sorry it’s been a while. Some of you emailed me about changes and removals of some posts, so I’ll just address the issue now – there have been some personal issues over the last few weeks that have kind of put an awful lot of other stuff into perspective, and while that’s ongoing I’m not going to comment on personal / private issues, but I just wanted to say thanks for the support and love over the last year, it’s meant a lot, and while some of you know what’s been going on lately, it’s not really something I want to talk about just yet.
And then there’s the peripheral stuff that’s occupying way more of my time and mental capacity then it really should – one of my best friends announced that she’s moving 4000 miles away, career is running away from me a bit (turns out that I’m pretty good at what I do, but have no self control so have been seriously overworked), daughter is growing up far too fast, my passport photo looks terrible, and then there’s a boy. Isn’t there always? I’m a little old to be dealing with this kind of thing, and it’s a strange complication of emotions that I haven’t felt since I was a teenager. But ultimately my ‘still married’ status has effectively put a halt to anything happening. And that’s a whole other issue to deal with. And yet, they are all minor matters compared to other things going on.
I’ll admit that, having been thrown for six, I’ve not really been myself lately. I’ve written over 100,000 words in the last week, spent most of my time walking around with the dog, talking to my neighbours, reading more than ever, hanging out with my friends, saying yes to things I would normally not consider, volunteering for stuff and getting into arguments that I would normally have let slide – FYI, Jaws is NOT a trilogy! I’ve also been sorting out a few things on my computer – password protecting certain folders and making sure that the relevant people know what to do in a worst case scenario. Turns out that for a mostly straight woman I possess a startling collection of gay porn. 🙂
I have a couple of sensible writing type posts that I will put up over the next few days, I just need to get my head showered first. And maybe log out of Archive Of Our Own for a couple of hours – if nothing else it’s doing terrible things to my expectations regarding sex.
So, take care peeps, and I’ll catch you in a day or two.
