Chapter 2014: here we go

Aaaaaaaand I'm finally pulling my finger out and getting back on the blogging bandwagon. I've been in a weird flux where what I've wanted to say I haven't been allowed to discuss, so I just....didn't say anything at all. You know how it is. 

Plus we had this massive 22 person Christmas to enjoy, and the week around it, which was a nice distraction.

So the quick update is that I finished one job this week, and tomorrow I'm starting another. I was all kinds of worried about being knocked up and not able to get work given I'm a ticking time bomb of baby birthing, but my old workplace miraculously got in contact with an opportunity that could not have worked out more perfectly. Now I not only get to work with Miss J (amongst others) again, but I'm back on a 21 minute train ride commute with a seat pretty much guaranteed in the mornings. BAM! No more sardine-tin-I'm-about-to-faint rides while heavily pregnant. Alls well that ends well.

I just know that time is going to speed by now, so I better get cracking on ticking off a few more to do's before life changes once and for all. Like making meringues. Which I did last night. Gawd, how my Saturday nights have changed.

So this is a happy new year from me to you - 2014 is going to ROCK. Albeit mostly soberly. And in a more "bouncing baby" than "crowd surfing at live gigs" fashion. Bring it on.


  1. Love the photos - the last one is fantastic :) I'm trying to get back on the blogging horse too, after far too long spent worrying about idiotic things like work... Just discovered your blog - subscribing straight away!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jonathan! Will be sure to head on over to your blog ad check it out also. Good luck with getting back on the blog horse!

  2. YIPPEE I'm so glad to have you back with us Christine! I've missed your little life updates. I know just how frustrating it is not being able to share news, it happens a lot in the Army when you can't even talk to friends for example involving discipline or promotion.
    So so glad to hear all is well :) I love the christmas jumper family snaps

    1. That must be so hard!! Discipline I understand, but promotion is a killer to keep under wraps. My life is such an open book I find it excruciating having things I can't talk about! xx

  3. Freakin awesome to have you back! And congrats on the job!
