Hey,

I'm just coming back to use the forums after some time away.

How is everyone? How's your cf? And what's going on in your lives?

I have a new toy..... A nexus 7 tablet. It means while I am on the bus or laid in bed, I finally have enough time and chance to get on to post on here. My life is busy right now and when I'm not busy I'm exhausted, so having this tablet is ideal.

Has everyone had a good year? I can believe it's almost that time again to make new years resolutions. This year I have reached some of my goals but not all of them, so I think next year will give me another chance of doing tihem. We've not had much of a summer in England this year. It seems to have been, week of spring, week of summer, 2 weeks of autumn and the rest winter. I wish the weather would cheer up!! Its not very good for my chest, all this cold weather!! How's the weather been where you are? I hope it's been better for you.

Anyway, there's a little update. Do post letting us know how you are, and if you're new to the forum, introduce yourself too, it would be lovely to hear from you.

All the best
Gem xx

Hey Judy,
 
I am suffering with my usual syndrome, of just not being able to say no, not ever!! lol
 
So now I am at college 5 days a week, after promising myself an easy year in September only doing 1 day a week.
 
It started with 1 day being made 2 days by me volunteering to support a tutor on a Monday as well as my usual Thursday. Then, on the Monday, I went into the office and was sat chatting to a couple of tutors......Where they managed to talk me into doing a course for 8 hours on a Tuesday......It's a good course (HNC in computing and systems development), but as you can see my hours are totting up. Then big boss man found me (he's always scared me even though I've never properly met him lol) and asked me if I could help out on a Friday with disabled students.......Well, of course I agreed to that. On Wednesdays I'm at the college seeing my counsellor. I'm knackered lol an it's only the start of the year :O
 
I'm just waiting for my body to start getting used to all this work it's getting.......Christmas hols are coming up in a couple of weeks tho, so time to relax then. :) x
 
Don't worry too much about me MIA this year though. Chances are I'm just making my body rest between college and more college......And more college ;)
