It's been a busy few months. One of my big goals of the past few years or so was to relocate closer to family. What with one thing and another, it never happened... Until last month.
After 11 years "up north", I've finally sold my house and returned to the south of England. Living with family for now, but it's a complete upheaval - new job, new house, new life! Well, that's the plan, anyway. Right now it's a case of letting the dust settle and picking up the pieces while sorting out what happens next.
Anyway. Back to the today's Very Important Task: I'm currently in the process of merging two old computers into one new one. It's taken 3 days so far. Hmmm
If you've been following my mumblog you'll know by now that my shiny new daughter (affectionately known as E) arrived just after Christmas :D I have no idea how I'll manage a Christmas birthday but I'll worry about that some other time ;) Straightforward pregnancy and birth (unlike with D) though there were problems between those two parts that meant I had to be induced 3 days before my due date.
I'd like to say it's been lovely and easy parenting two, but I'd be lying :P D has decided tantrums are the coolest thing ever and E is full of reflux and colicky problems and stuff, blerk. Add to that that D is now on his 6th cold of the year (thanks, nursery. They only last a few days but he brings a new one home every session, argh) and you have a joyous period for us here.
Ah, all fun and games...
Remember when I used to blog? No? Me neither.
It's been quiet chez Amelie, hence there's not really been much to write about. Thought it would be a nice idea to update this place once every few months though, yes? Yes.
- D is now almost 16 months old. We celebrated his birthday back in June with family and got him a ball bit as a present. He loved it for a while, then realised it's far more fun to throw all the balls out and watch everyone rushing to pick them up than it is to actually play with them :P
- I've started a separate 'mommy blog' - if you want to call it that - where my parenty ramblings go. My intention was to keep this place a bit more separate, but since there's not a great deal else happening, it's kind of resulted in a flood of activity there and nothing here. Might have to fix that at some point. In any case, if you want parenty stuff, here you go (warning: contains fairly uncensored talk about boobs and nappies and whatnot. Might want to give it a skip if you're eating or something).
- Oh, and there's also the small matter of D's impending sibling, due in late December. Yep. Weren't expecting that, now were you? It's going well so far; very little icky sickness or anything like that, so that's good.
Otherwise, yeah, pretty quiet here. Time is a thing I've forgotten how to have, and any I do have seems to disappear in the blink of an eye. It's all good fun though :)
