Apparently I own a website or something? Who knew.
If you're interested at all in The Goings on of Life Chez Amelie, most of the things I planned to do in the last entry have now happened. New job and new life anyway... Just waiting - still - on the new house thing. Plans are in place though!
I also have Grand Plans for this here site but that involves time to rewrite the really rather awful CMS (or convert back to WP) so maybe I'll get round to that in, like, 5 years or something. Or maybe I'll have a nap instead. Mmm nap.
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
Ever felt like everyone else's world is moving at 100mph while yours is standing still? I have. Still do, in fact; have felt it for quite some time now.
I guess that happens when big things change in your life. You watch the people you used to know, doing what you used to do, and continuing to do those things while you have it all on pause. You wait for a time when you'll be able to catch up and carry on as before.
Of course, it doesn't really happen. You get a moment to catch up, but it's never long enough to have caught up with everything everyone else was doing in your absence. It's sad, because obviously you end up losing touch with people/activities you used to spend a lot of time on. It's not easy from the other side either - I distinctively remember the feeling of losing friends when things started happening for other people and they weren't around as much, or started having different interests as a result of their new lives.
It's an odd feeling. I'm not sure I like it.
(I don't deal with change too well. Can you tell? :P )
