Hello everybody! Long time no see, I know, but I've been so fucking busy the past few months, something had to give and it had to be fandom, because life sucks, basically. I'm still only really here for a fleeting moment, but I really wanted to say a massive thank you to the lovely people who sent me birthday messages yesterday, especially those of you whom I know I missed doing exactly that recently with as busy as I have been. So, THANK YOU, my darling, lovely, wonderful friends, and replies to those messages are forthcoming, I promise!

I actually had a really nice birthday, despite the chaos in which I am currently living! I was taken out to dinner at a very fancy restaurant, and we even managed to encourage my teenager to come out of her bedroom for a few hours - which is a very big feat indeed. Eryn got her GCSE results through last week, and she did just as brilliantly as we'd expected, and since then there's been a flurry of activity in getting her ready to begin sixth-form college next week. Oh, and she got her eyebrow pierced, because heaven forbid she look ordinary. It actually goes quite nicely with her blue hair. Madison started at secondary school today, and so far, so good. They've placed her in a class filled with students from her old school, which they did on purpose in order to keep her comfortable. They're really pulling out all the stops for her, which is nice to see in our current education system - they don't usually work quite so hard. Hopefully, she'll settle in nicely. I've got my fingers crossed.

I'm currently struggling between two stories to write for [ profile] hd_erised, and I haven't had time to bounce ideas off my beta yet, but I'm really hoping I'll find some time over the next couple of weeks. The good news is that I have at least written a couple k of each story idea so far, so there is some progress happening.

Aaaaand my time is up, because now the baby is calling for me and Ben needs me to iron something for him (men are the worst, I swear). So anyway, just a quick note to let y'all know I am in fact still alive, and to say thanks once again for such lovely birthday messages - every one of them made me smile!

Hope you're all doing great, my lovelies! <3
