What is this? Gang up on Jona day??

I could use the excuse that I’ve been busy, which I have, but really no busier than ever.

The kids are still kids, only real difference being our eldest is well into his teenage years, seeming to know an incredible amount of young women, and strangely enjoying his new job.

Work is one of the things that has taken over my life. I now work at least four days week, and really only get my day off out of principal – ie I remind the boss I’m only supposed to work 1 morning a week! And he’s got another business, property management, so I’m now getting to know twenty-two tenants better than I should.

Did I mention we’re going back to Florida this Christmas? Can’t afford it, but hey-ho life is for living ;) And I need something to look forward to….

And I’ve stopped doing the cakes. Broke my heart at the time I decided (start of the summer holidays) but I was working three evening a week, and there still wasn’t any real money in it. Although… in fairness, I was getting wedding cake orders – trouble was it was from mates, which is tricky as I can hardly charge them a ‘real’ price. Surprisingly I really haven’t missed it that much.

My latest passion – the one that takes up all my spare time – is really embarrassing actually. It’s an online game. I suppose in the theme of dungeons & dragons – not that I would know as I’ve never played that – but I’m guessing the sheer absorption level you have to reach to get anywhere is similar.

The one I play is DarkOrbit, and if any of you try it out – opt for the UK server, VRU company – that way it won’t take you long to find me, even without being specifically told user name! Not that I’m recommending it – don’t get me wrong, it’s an entire life & heaps of fun, but it is VERY time consuming!

I had also been thinking I would attempt the Nano write in November, especially after missing it last year. But realistically we’re going away in December, which means I not only have to be up to date with everything, but get ahead of myself – and whilst there may be a couple of months to prepare – I know me, and I have enough trouble coping with each new day! So maybe next year…..

It’s very touching that some of you still visit here, and I shall attempt to be a bit more vocal – thanks for caring guys :o)
