What happened to January?

It only feels like 5 minutes ago I was getting myself all in a panic about how Isabel would settle at nursery, but apparently it’s well over a month. Oops. Neglecting my blog, much? Isabel settled into nursery quicker than I imagined she would. She’s adopted a blanket that I crocheted when I was about… read more →

Oh Bugger

Why is it that when I’m away from the computer I can formulate hundreds of blog entries in my head but the second I sit down to write anything, it all pours away? Buggery. I guess with the lack of anything inspirational or witty to say I should probably update you all on what’s going… read more →

The World of Jem

What’s going on in the world of Jem lately? Let’s see… I’ve been back at work 3 weeks now. It’s not as bad as I thought it would be. That’s not to say I wouldn’t rather be at home with Isabel, but I am actually enjoying parts of it. I know! Knock me down with… read more →

Unexpected Feelings, Work, etc

Today I returned to work. Walking out of the door this morning was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my entire life; I felt like I was abandoning my daughter. Of course, I wasn’t… and she enjoyed her day with her Nannies (my mum and Lou) so barely noticed I’d gone. Work… read more →

So, what with juggling my websites, Isabel, driving lessons and now this… think my brain is going to explode.… read more →

I Passed My JavaScript Module

I finally remembered to check the results for the second module of my course today; I received another Grade 2 pass as per the first module. Given my self-confessed loathing of JavaScript I didn’t even expect to get that far. I am annoyed though, to be quite honest. I have a weak spot when it… read more →

One of them Personal Updates

I signed up to the second module of my course earlier this week — that starts in May — so expect another one of those crazy mad rush sprees while I get everything finished up in anticipation of sitting on my arse avoiding the coursework. Procrastination ftw. Hex has been poorly, we had two vet… read more →

I Passed and Other Things

News, news, random crap, etc. I passed the first module thingy of my course. It only (why is there no “<sarcasm>” tag?) took them 3 months to mark the damned essay report! Grade 2 Pass, whatever that means? The thin looking kitty from the garden — so named Mr Scruffy, how original — has been… read more →

Looking at 2007, Preparing For 2008

Around this time last year I was surmising both a stressful and successful 2006. Although 2007 was nowhere near as life-changing, it still saw me enrol in — and complete the first module of — my first step towards an official qualification in web development. I gained my first pay rise in the job that… read more →
