Why the blog silence?

Long story.

Short version : this is a very different arena with so much more I would love to share with you, but these things and events must essentially remain unbloggable.

Long version: It seemed a good place to leave things, with me heading off into the sunset (or maybe it was a sunrise) over the horizon.

My life as a midwife has broadened immensely. And so therefore I have so much more to lose should this small world be revealed. Plus I've signed all manner of contracts to that effect.

I am not so vain to assume my meagre life outside my (challenging but rewarding) new job would hold much interest for many. Besides: life outside work? What life outside work?

At this point I am 8 days away from a month long holiday. And I am, shall we say, most keen for this to commence.

This post is to say I have neither forgotten how to blog, nor forgotten any of you. I am reading your blogs, if not quite as voraciously as I once had the time to do, then at least regularly. And I am (oh, slings and arrows) Facebooking much more than is required. Its hard work 'keeping up' with 400+ friends. I have spoken to all but about 10 of them in real life, or online, even so it is a little amusing to think I have so many acquaintances ;) Lets just say that it is both a good and a bad thing.

Lastly, I am about to turn 50. In 16 days time.

I think I feel ok about that.

But I thought I would work out any potential issues I had with the big 5-0 by talking to the Universe. And that's where you come in.

Stay tuned.

Oh I have missed your work posts but I do understand - whenever I write the teeniest bit about work - even if it is not specific person related, it is worrisome. And I deal with matters much less intimate than you.

Glad to have you back though, even if it is sporadic.

Looking forward to hearing about your upcoming birthday!

Oh this is great! Welcome back.
Fifty-schmifty - it's the new 24 didn't you know?

I was wondering what you were up too!! At least you left us with the knowledge that your work was changing so that made sense.

So happy to see you back! I've missed your posts! Fifty is nuthin'! I'm up to 61 now and I still feel ((in my head only) as I did at 17. My body, on the other hand, feels 71!! Looking forward to your posts.
