Apologies and a base-touch

Apologies to you all for my LJFriends list drama yesterday. Turns out that it was all a misunderstanding caused by some third-party (LJToys) notification and some misreading on my part. I have made that entry private now to try to reduce the drama. The LJFriend and I are as much real-friends as we ever were (VERY!), I hope.

That said, I have had two very busy days this week, Monday and 'today' (Thursday), and the next three days do not seem to be any less busy. I had hoped to sleep a lot 'tomorrow' (Friday) but, of course, Mum will be here to help me out and so I will need to be at least vaguely awake. Then, Saturday and Sunday involve a Transit van, a lot of heavy boxes (a garage full plus a few more) and a storage unit. This when hubby and I both have current injuries and are SOOOOOO tired!

So, sorry again the the shall-remain-nameless LJFriend who is definitely a real-as-possible-over-the-internet-friend and a co-MSer for my likely MonSter induced brain-fart. Also, any good vibes, thoughts and wishes that you can spare would be really helpful as hubby and I move the last of the boxes this weekend.

Finally, to all of you out there that are having Bad Times™ yourselves, I am sending all of the good vibes, wishes and thoughts your way that I can muster!

In the words of A. N. Other LJFriend…

I am working on a "super sekrit project". It is, as many new projects are for me, currently all-consuming. I know some of my RL friends amongst you know what it is, but I don't want to jinx it by telling too many people until it is more off the ground than it is right now and I would appreciate it if those of you that know don't mention it until I do.

I have started so many projects, careers and potential-earners in the past that, if this works out and I don't do my usual habit of giving up at the first hurdle, this will be MyLife™ version 7. Yes, I have already changed career/training/direction that many times in my 41 years, if I include all of the following MyLife™ versions:
  1. my aim at age 18 to be a maths teacher to 6th form pupils,

  2. my first degree, BSc Biochemistry.
    I had been told by my careers advisor that my Maths/Stats, Bio and Chem A levels would not be enough for a Maths degree (which turned out to be wrong but I only discovered that half way through the BSc) and I decided that I wanted to be Quincy,

  3. my second degree, MSc Information Technology.
    I knew I did not have the stamina to stand over a bunsen burner for years and wanted to make more money than a biochemist would make without further degrees/research (followed by my ten year programming career),

  4. my years of 'retirement' since 2000 where I was initially happy to be a kept housewife, before I started to do less well at keeping house,

  5. my abortive attempt at training to be a photographer before realising that I would never have the guaranteed health to meet appointments with clients,

  6. my abortive attempt to train as a proofreader before realising that I would not have the motivation/stamina to be able to go out and find freelance work.

So. If this pans out and I am not tilting at windmills all over again, then this will be MyLife™ version 7.
