Long time, no see...

I haven't been posting for a long time and yet many people still visit this blog (nearly 3000 last month). I am also getting offers to test products, mostly for babies and toddlers. So if you are a PR and want me to test a product, my daughter is 7 now and I don't have any babies to test buggies or other infant products.

If you are a reader, fellow blogger or just casual visitor, I have been busy doing commercial writing for websites and enjoying all Cambridge has to offer. The picture above (not really flattering for me, but hey, I am no spring chicken) was taken in King's Parade just before we were granted entrance to Senate House to a great spot to watch the Tour de France blitz through Cambridge city centre.

I have also been going through a sort of middle-life crisis. For years I have been championing homeworking but in the past year or so I have been enjoying working in an office again (albeit as a temp/contractor). I am not happy working from home any more, now my daughter is in school and at an afterschool club, I can work elsewhere if I wish. Still job hunting is very competitive in Cambridge so I still take on freelance writing and editing work.

If you read this and like me are wondering what to do next, please leave a comment and share your insights, woes, good story or bad story. I would really love to hear other people's views (male and female).

To the next time.
