So, last week JamesofDoom (I don't know how to link to profiles on the app, sorry James!) expressed surprise at the fact that I'm still alive in LJ-land so I thought it was maybe time to give you an update of what's been going on with me. I think the last time I did a proper update was just after we bought our house back at the end of 2008 so this update has been long overdue.
I'm going to start with the good - we've welcomed another new nephew into the family, this time on the OH's side. He is just over a year old now, utterly adorable and only lives 5 mins up the road from us so we get to see him all the time. The OH loves being a proper uncle and is incredibly cute with him, especially as they look so alike :)
We also welcomed two new members into our furry family last summer - two seven-week old kittens who go by the name of Ozzy and Lilly, bringing our brood up to 4. They turned 1 last month and are just gorgeous, and I will admit to having a soft spot for Lilly, especially as she claimed me for herself last August.
Not so good news now - I mentioned that we bought a house in November 2008, in January 2009 the OH and I (we worked at the same company) had to take a paycut as the business wasn't doing so well. It limped on until this time last year when I was told my job was being made redundant. The OH's job was safe, thankfully, or so we thought, as the company ended up going out of business altogether the week after I left. Our luck with getting new jobs has been a bit up-and-down - I've been able to get some temping work but they've been few and far between, and we're both waiting to hear back from recent interviews - everyone keep your fingers crossed!
Unfortunately that's all the news I have for you right now, hopefully next time I update it will be to say we've won the lottery or something (a girl can hope) :D
