Hello everybody. I bet you didn't expect to see me back in here..!!
Last year I decided I needed to take some time away from social media.... and a few other activities.... to devote as much time as possible to my family.
It's been a very happy and contented year, if occasionally difficult and even traumatic at times, but now I'm ready to show my face again.
I hope you have all been well and enjoying life. Me..? It's been a challenging year with much happening, but it's been good.
We've had a death in the family, a "close run thing" with my dad and Amanda got a promotion. We both play netball every week for a team in the local league and still enjoy our rugby.
The Mini Tsuanami is doing well at school and still loves to swim. She goes to swim club twice a week and would go every day if she could. I'm still a stay at home mum but am now starting to plan my route back to work. It won't be easy. I've suffered too much skill fade in the last 6 or so years and Brexit has already hammered my profession. It will hurt it even more when / if UK finally leaves the EU so that's going to be interesting. Oh well.... life was never meant to be easy, eh..?
I'm looking forward to picking up on all that's going on here and getting involved again.... probably not as much as before, but certainly on a reasonably regular basis.
It's nice to say hello again. Now.... how many familiar names am I going to see when I scroll through the topics, I wonder...
