What I Did: Fell out of the blogging loop

I tried. I really did. But, you know, sometimes life (read: weekends away and crazy long hours at work) gets in the way, which is why despite my twice a week blog promise I made at the start of the year I fell off the wagon for the whole of February and a large part of March. *embarrassed* However, I am now back to blogging and I will do my best to keep up my two blogs a week rate.

So, here's a brief recap of what's been going on with me in the last month or so...

I got back into Zumba, as part of an effort to get toned up before heading off on holiday to Malta at the end of April, and because my doctor told me that if I don't lose some weight then she might have to take me off the medication I'm on. I've also gone cold turkey on the snack table at work, which seems to be working - I've got no idea if I've lost any weight or not, but I do feel like I've got my shape back and that I'm sleeping a lot better, which is always an advantage.

I've also been working on looking for a new job and have had a couple of interviews, but sadly no success yet. It's getting to a stage where I'm starting to think about what to do with my career; I do like my job, but I'm wondering if I need to start looking for something that's a bit closer to what I actually want to do with myself. But we'll see what happens in the next few months I guess. And at least I've got a bit of security for the next couple of months due to having my contract extended.

The other thing that's been taking up a fair bit of my time is my writing - I was a member of a local writers' group on and off last year but since January I've been making a real effort to go to every meeting, and have been working on my assignments for that as well as the Roman murder mystery novel I've been harbouring for the last nine months or so. It's been a fairly long haul, but I think it's starting to come together, although I don't expect to have the novel finished for at least a year

And finally... one potentially huge plan, which I'm not sure I want to say too much about just yet, as it may well not happen depending on what happens with my employment situation over the next few months. But suffice to say it would be an amazingly epic adventure, and whilst I am a bit scared about taking the plunge and what happens afterwards, if it all comes together then I absolutely cannot wait.

So, that's where I've been for the past few weeks, in case you missed me. Now back to the serious business of regular blogging...
