*waves* in a drive-by manner

Hello All,

Well, after falling off the edge of the earth for the last 6 months (rather appalling months, which we shall hastily gloss over), I am briefly sticking my head above the parapet to say that I'm still alive. University is going well, I'm starting a new job the week after next, and am feeling really rather happy with everything.

I've tried to keep up with everything, but to be honest it's been a bit here and gone. I have no idea if I'm going to be able to keep up with LJ in the near future, and I'm definitely completely unable to find writing time, but I just wanted to wave hello and say I hope you're all doing well.

Glad to see you! I was talking about you to Erastes yesterday. Were your ears burning?

Sorry to hear that the last six month have been grotty but yay for the new job. :)

chris_smith_atr April 3rd, 2012
LOL - my ears were pretty okay, I think! My superpowers much be receding. A damn shame!

Thanks - just glad they're over. Looking forward is a good thing. A very good thing. How have things been with you?


elin_gregory April 3rd, 2012
Exciting. I had a novella published in March :D, am trying to finish a novel and am looking forward to the next Meet in September. Looking forward is nice.

I'm sure the superpowers will come back once you have time to breathe again.

Ooh yay! When I get back to reading books that have nothing to do with Architectural Ethics and knowledge transfer etc, I will pick it up and devour it like a hungry thing!

Oh, good luck on the new job! It always sounded like the other one was eating you alive. Hope uni is a huge success!

chris_smith_atr April 3rd, 2012
It only got worse, worryingly. Very pleased to be out of there now. Uni is going well - just amazingly good fun. And thanks! Just excited for the future!

sandra_lindsey April 3rd, 2012
Yay you're alive!

I texted you a bit ago, but don't know if you've changed your number (and if it's now someone else's number I hope they got thoroughly confused by my message :-D)

V. v. good to hear from you. Much sympathies on hectic work/life/everything, but yay for new job & Uni going well :-D

chris_smith_atr April 3rd, 2012
Hi yes, sorry about that. you texted me more or less just after I'd found out a good friend has cancer and another one committed suicide (as I said, bad 6 months).

Thanks for the support and sorry I did not reply - brain was in a bad place. Now it is in a better place.


sandra_lindsey April 3rd, 2012
Sorry to hear :-( I just assumed you were far too busy to bother with silly messages from foreigners (well, from Wales, which is fairly foreign!).

Yay for head being in a better place! (I usually find above my shoulders works well ;-)

chris_smith_atr April 4th, 2012
I <3 Wales and Welshppls! (sort of like weshcakes, but meatier)

My head goes for nice wandering sojourns. Often in special, pill induced, happy climes.

So glad to see your post!! Glad to hear you're on your way to better and fun things!! Especially a big yay! on the new job :D


chris_smith_atr April 4th, 2012

stevie_carroll April 3rd, 2012
