For all I know, I could start mentioning how my life is going, and you could think I was a complete imposter, hacking in to my blog account and typing merrily away about this totally different life. You could disown me completely and stop 'following' me at all (although, let's face it, it's not exactly strenuous for you to have been 'following' me for the past eight months, given that I have written virtually bugger all, is it? You can hardly blame me for straining your eyes at your computer for longer than is healthy, unless you have been staring out my blog waiting for some letters to magically appear on the screen. Which I doubt).
All the same.
Okay, so where to begin.
Update Number One: I am now working full time, so now I have a reason to be mentally exhausted and have little time for blogging. I know, I should have warned you that you needed to be sitting down to read this blog. It's only nearly four years since I have been in full time work (not long at all, rather scarily). And before all of you hardened full-time daily bloggers give me a pasting for being such a lightweight... well... just.. er.. don't. Please? I have been learning so much for the past few weeks that my little over-active head is just about falling off.
The only thing that I can say about working full time at this very moment is that it is a death knell for the creative process. When, exactly, am I meant to find the time to aimlessly daydream about winning the lottery or earning millions being a motivational guru? I have tried this during my hour-long commute on two buses and one train but found the experience of being jammed under a banker's armpit or being prodded in the back by the sharp corner of a handbag a bit of a distraction. Added to that, when am I meant to watch films or read all of the billions of inspiring newsletters that I signed up to during my days of leisure which flood in to my hotmail account every day? Or even, to that end, read my email? Is that what weekends are for now? Seriously?
Update Number Two: I have to finish up writing this blog because it is nearly 11 o'clock and I know that I will hear the kids at about 6:30 am.
Oh, so now I have your attention?
Told you things had changed.
