What have I been up to?
I was looking for something to do other than be a housewife (although I love being a housewife don't get me wrong) and considering midwifery, doula-ing, sales of some type or other, cake decorating, setting up my own business (which I may yet do). All very random I know but all things I love.
I got a new sales job which involved 2 weeks away from home training, and now 3 days a week based at home, and I love it - it's a bit like Susan from Desperate Housewives and involves a web cam!
I went on holiday to the Cote D'Azur and this time had fantastic weather (any opinion on the Princess Tam Tam big pants bikini - as featured in Vogue and finally found in Cannes?)
I had a long weekend in Paris and again had fantastic weather and an amazing time, the photo is not the best shot of Paris, but shows the Westin Vendome where we stayed.
My life feels lovely just now and I am waiting with trepidation for something to go wrong - I think I have said before I am not a pessimist it just comes from previous experience.
Then last week I had two pieces of news which devastated me, first of all someone I knew professionally for 10 years, who I liked and respected died instantly in a car accident and leaves behind a wife and 4 children, a person with a tremendous appetite for life, very clever and very humble. Within moments of the phone call with that news, a recently made friend rang to tell me that she has ovarian cancer, again someone lovely, young and one of the healthiest people I know. Life is inexplicable much of the time isn't it?
I have been reading everyone and commenting occasionally, and I'm sure when the weather changes I will be back into Blogging in a big way.
