I have been horribly remiss and haven't posted here in 5 days - oops. Unfortunately, I've had a stomach flu and I'm not one of those prepared, forward thinking people who has blog posts ready for emergencies. I write rather on whim. Maybe this is a sign to stop that. I don't have much to stay as I'm still pretty exhausted, but I thought I'd … [Read more...] about My ears are burning.

My financial … [Read more...] about I'm on the move.
It's not that 2008 was necessarily a bad year. More like it was a hard year. A year where I noticed that my life was not what I wanted it to be at all, and as a result, went through lots and lots of growing pains. And I mean lots. And loudly. With lots of tears. And kicking and screaming and beating my fists against the tides of change. Ever … [Read more...] about 2009, Thou Shalt Be The Year of Non Suck.
She probably knows something you don't. I met the most marvellous woman this weekend. Charlotte is her name.
