Blog and Life Update No 2

Whoops, that hiatus was a little longer than I had planned originally. So sorry for my absence on the blog, but life has been all kinds of crazy – though thankfully of the wonderful variety.


First off all, I would like you to meet Bob. I wish I could keep him, but he belongs to my parents and I am just taking care of him during their holiday abroad. These last few days I have discovered, however, that a far more accurate description would be to say that my parents belong to Bob. He might be pretty, but has a matching diva personality and enjoys having his every whim catered too immediately (even if it is 4 am).dsc06448


Besides el Bob and being back in the place I grew up for a bit (which is weird, but a great opportunity to take some photos of the environment), I have also started my new job working at the new T-Rex exhibit at my local Natural History museum. It is so much fun interacting with the public on a daily basis and even more fun to see how a museum operates behind the scenes. It has been a steep learning curve though and I have been a little too busy to blog.



Not to worry, as the second anniversary of Doves & Roses is coming up in October (I honestly can’t believe it but I double checked). I hope things will get a little more settled and normal service on the blog should resume with a bang on October third with a lovely giveaway as a thank you for sticking with me.dsc06465

I’ll start catching up with all of your blogs and comments this week, so stay tuned and I’ll be in touch!
