a year of nice things


Still on maternity leave but managing on my own at home with work and baby.

A very instrospective time being that time of the year when you renew your practising certificate and realise just how long you have been doing this and wonder how long you can continue to do this.

I turned a year older, and found out that I was preggers again.


I moved t0 WordPress from Diaryland. I was awfully disappointed with the system. I undertook a crazy-ass trip to KL on a coach with Peanut in which I was awfully pissed off, spent a night in Malacca, and abandoned my other travel companions on Sunday morning and came home.
