Can't believe September was my last entry - real life has been distracting me but things are starting to settle.

Here's the long shortish version, for anyone who's interested:-
Jamie decided almost immediately that he didn't like the course in Aberdeen but stuck it out until Christmas to see if it got any better. It didn't, so he's back home with us since January - which is nice but strange having him home again - all that laundry! He's also managed to get an unconditional acceptance to a University here in Edinburgh and will be starting fresh in September. In the meantime, he's managed to get a temporary office job to get some cash before then.
My eldest, Chris, graduates from Glasgow this year and is in the midst of applying for jobs etc - was down in London yesterday for an induction day with IBM - not sure how it went, but it's all good experience.
Becca is studying for her Standard Grade exams in May and between that and the normal hormonal stuff for a 15 year old girl is driving Sandy and I to drink!
My job has been re-located to Falkirk - about 30 miles away - which is really adding to my day and means by the end of the week I'm totally knackered.
Anyway, things are a bit more settled so I'm trying to get back into lj - it's kinda nice to be back.

It's good to have you back sweetie! You seem like you've had a ton on your plate as well. Good luck with all of it!

Thank you. Not real troubles, just life I guess. But I'm definitely looking forward to being back on an even keel.

Hi, and welcome back! I friended you...just wanted to let you know, since I find it vaguely creepy when folks I don't know friend me for no reason. Anyway, you kept popping up on my friends' flists, and I love Edinburgh, so hi from Texas.

Thank you. Greetings from Edinburgh too - it's lovely to hear from you. I usually friend people whose fics I enjoy and I then get to know them more from their posts, so this is a first for me but I've friended you back. I'm afraid I don't write fic and I hardly ever post so you're in for a pretty boring time but at least I won't hog your flist.

Great to be back. No, not omgbadbad, just life. But I've also got stuff to look forward to - it's our Silver Wedding next month and for the first time in 25 years, Sandy and I are having a wee holiday just by ourselves. We're going down to York and the North York Moors for a week - I'll post some pics when we get back.

Sounds like a lot of fun.
Have a good time!


Oh, and - congratulations!
