Um, is it December already?

It's been so long, I sort of feel like I should have something momentous to say, some sort of big 'ta-da!' But no, I think I'll just slip back in and see if anyone notices!

I will assure you that no, I have not been in early hibernation (I wish!). Life has just kind of taken over since the end of August. Actually that's not quite right - I don't currently have much of a life. Teacher training has taken over, completely. I'm almost half-way through the course now; the last day of term (and also a major essay-deadline) is next Friday and I can't wait. I want to sleep in, take photos, knit, read for pleasure... there are so many things that I want to and I just know I won't be able to fit them all into the three weeks holiday we get, but I'll try! There's also a little something called Christmas that I'm dying to start getting excited about.

I have a huge enormous thankyou to say to Zoe, who sent me a fantastic parcel a couple of weeks ago. Zoe, I know you already know it, but I was absolutely delighted by everything you sent me. It really makes me smile to think that people who have never met will put that much effort into making and sending packages to each other. I'll post some pictures of what she sent as soon as I'm able to find some real daylight in this flat.

Oh, it feels good to be back. Let's see if I can keep this up, eh?
