*taps microphone* *blows cobwebs out* Testing...testing...
I know! It's been eight months since I published anything here. EIGHT MONTHS. I didn't even finish recapping our trip to Europe. My excuse? Mmm, I've just had the blahs. I haven't felt especially motivated about anything at all. Work, housekeeping, training, writing, anything. And if it wasn't for Bike Boy's cooking skills, we'd probably have been living on pizza and KFC.
I didn't blog about it at the time, but my Mum died unexpectedly in April last year. I still don't really want to talk about it here, but the short version is: it's been a very rough year, where it seemed that everything was spiralling out of control. The end result is that I worked myself into a pretty bad state, both physically and mentally.
But enough is enough. I need to reclaim some kind of normal, and I'm starting with blogging. At this point my plan is to just post something, anything, at least a couple of times a week to get back into the swing of things.
I'm also about to head off to this little piece of paradise in a couple of days, so assuming the hotel wifi works, I can promise plenty of photos of cocktails and Thai food and (hopefully) glorious blue skies.
Now I need to go rummage through my wardrobe to see what I can find that's suitable for a tropical holiday that still bloody fits me.
