The spring is sprung

Weather’s looking pretty tasty today, and here I am sitting at my computer – bah!  🙂

Haven’t posted in a while, mostly because I’ve been exceedingly busy – not least with a fast-growing little girl in the mix.  Amy’s graduated from lying on her back to sitting up unaided, to standing, to crawling, to walking and ultimately to running – and my gawd, how quick is she?!  She certainly keeps us on our toes…

It’s been a fascinating year or so, watching this little bundle grow and develop.  At the moment, she’s mimicking things we say quite well – so we need to watch our language!  And she’s also developing a tendency to assert her independence, struggling and kicking when you pick her up, and trying to launch herself out of her car seat when we’re buckling her in.  I keep telling myself that this is nothing compared to when she’s a teenager, but I try not to think about that…!

More about Amy in future posts – there’s so much to tell!

Since my last post, we’ve moved house to a 4-bed detached number on the edges of Wilmington (rather!), which has soaked up whatever spare time I had left.  Funny how you look around a house with a view to buying it, think “That’ll do” and put in an offer – and as soon as you move in you start changing it!  Whatever, it’s taking shape nicely.  Again, more of that in future posts.  At the moment, we’re dealing with a sink hole that’s appeared underneath our deck – hopefully it’ll just be a case of filling the bugger and carrying on.

Work is burgeoning, which is a good complaint.  And quite a feat, given the economic climate.  We’re fast approaching the company’s 10th anniversary, so a party of sorts would be nice but not guaranteed.

And speaking of work…
