Long time no blog

Yes, it's been a while since I've updated. I had to give up my laptop when I left my last job, and along with it went Photoshop, which I always use to edit and resize my photos. Although I’ve installed Gimp in the PC at home, I’ve been too lazy to learn a bunch of different commands. That shouldn’t stop me from blogging, but for some reason, I seem less compelled to enter a post with just text. What can I say, I’m a visual person.

It’s been a strange start to the year. I’ve been in a sort of limbo, as if I’m waiting for my real life to start. It’s funny how I equate a permanent job with properly getting on with life. In case you didn’t know, I was made redundant from my job in Dec, and for the past few months, I’ve been with two companies, while interviewing for a permanent job.

I’ve got my fingers crossed for this job; the role is interesting and will stretch my abilities, and while it’s in an industry which I’d never have considered working for, I’m discovering that there’s more to it than I’d originally thought.

On the homefront, we’ve been getting our bathrooms fixed, and this has meant the entire house has been covered in dust, which means the baking and cooking has come to a temporary halt. I’m itching to get back to baking though, as I’ve discovered some fantastic recipes that I’m dying to try out.

I haven't given up blogging (I will admit I'm all about the Twittering now), and will be back soon. While I get myself sorted out, I’ll leave you with some wonderful links which I’ve come across recently:
