been a long time, been a long time...

Listening to: Stars of the Lid, The Tired Sounds of

Hey there everybody! Although everybody is now just the most loyal readers, cos really, who's gonna bother when I only seem to be blogging at what seems a monthly rate?

Sooo, what's been happening in my world? Well, quite a bit really. My dear SOD has just moved back in with me. Oh happy days. We are going to counselling, which I thought was going to be awful but has turned out to be pretty damned useful. I heartily recommend it!

I have made the momentous decision to cut back on the work I do with the Film Festival so that I can pursue some of the other things I'm interested in - producing some art, getting physically healthier (ie, actually using the gym membership I have been paying for over the past year!), and possibly doing a part-time publishing course which starts in February.

I'm about to embark on the exciting project of redecorating my bedroom. I'll have to post some before and after shots I guess. It's a very small room and really cluttered. I've bought some new furniture. Next step is painting the room and sleeping on the couch till it's all done. It's gonna be fun.

Okay, so what else? I have been spending way too much time on MySpace. I haven't been blogging, just meeting a few peeps and sussing out the music. Every now and then I stumble upon people I know and that can be funny.

The film festival has been and gone and most of it seems to have disappeared completely from my memory. I got so busy during those weeks that everything from then has become a blur.

well, I will try to keep up with my blog a little more often. I just don't know where the time goes...

So happy to have you around Rose. I have missed you!

Glad to hear you and David are back under one roof. And things are on the mend. Absolutely great news!

Please show photos of the room. I love redecorating stories. Melvin just sanded our bedroom floor and laminated it. It's so very pretty.

Sweet Rose -- I second PG :-) Glad to have you back and also great to hear the news about you and D.

I think you're doing the right thing as regards the cut-down on work. It's important to look out for number one too, Rose. And there's so much more to life than work -- look who's talking - d'oh!......aye aye, easier said than done. I really respect and admire you for being able to implement such changes in your life -- good for you :-D Keep us posted on how it all goes.

MySpace -- it's the Devil as Mike Daily once said. He was right! It's such a time consumer! Argh.

Tis I and in full bloom.

Glad to have you around again well hopefully judging by your blog resolutions less than a round and more like a trim and slim gym bunny.

Please post spandex lycra butt shot.

Fantastic news about SOD. Counselling huh...I bet that is a whole world of interesting stuff to wade through. As it has been years since I was a devoted Shorty watcher, feel free to start a new blog on the adventures of ROD and SOD,(Rose did not quite fit)Most entertaining I imagine. Perhaps a Movie deal will follow, Angelina Jolie will of course be trying out for the role of ROD. Hmmn who for SOD? your answer to that one could be the topic for your next session.
