Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated

Just in case anyone was worried, I just wanted to reassure you that I am not dead.

I started a new job three weeks ago and it has been a massive adjustment. My new role is extremely complex… and while it is technically similar to my previous role it is also completely different. I have been completely absorbed in trying to understand how, what and why as fast as possible. It is daunting because both the contractor that had been covering the role and my line manager left last week. It’s a bit like learning a dance routine while someone is still composing the music. I have also already been to Leeds and Birmingham in the space of that three weeks.

I am hoping to start blogging again properly soon and I have some posts planned including:

  • Spanish snacks I have been tasting
  • A few outfit highlights
  • Little O’s 23 month update
  • A review of Stasiland

I am trying to keep up with your blogs as much as I can but I know I am very behind. I ope everyone is okay. Here is a picture of Little O and I being silly.



  1. No problem, Abbi. I knew about the new job, so guessed that would be consuming your time.
    Don’t worry about catching up, and I will look forward to your new stuff when you get time to post it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. It is nice to catch up though. I am getting there slowly!

  2. “…like learning a dance routine while someone is still composing the music” is a fantastic line. With all learning curves, it is exciting and frustrating. Your smile and little O’s grin says a lot. You’ll be alright!

    1. I have moments where it feels like it is starting to make sense and then other times where I feel utterly lost and realise I know nothing. I think I have probably got at least 3 or 4 months ahead of me before I feel at all settled.

  3. I totally understand you, Abbi. Take all the time you need.

    1. Thanks, Vin! Managed to post again this week so there is some progress being made.
