[ora pro nobis peccatoribus]

I am appalled with myself.
I have made about 3 posts in the last year, which, at the risk of sounding repetitive, is appalling. I do apologise to my usual reader(s?) (that's you Bx) but I either haven't known what to write about, or have been too "busy" or just generally forgotten.
It's appalling.

This last year has been one of the toughest, and most enjoyable, years of my life. That I can remember, anyway - I'm sure that the year that my brother was born was a barrel of laughs as well, but I'm actually old enough to appreciate things more this year. Well, I'm not 5.
This year, I moved out.
This year, I went to university.
This year, quite a few things I thought I knew turned upside down.

In September, I moved out of the house in Maidenhead to the flat in Manchester. It was more than just a physical act of shifting my stuff out of the house - it was an emotional move too. I've always referred to wherever I'm staying as "home" but referring to Maidenhead as "home" now just seems strange. I know I say "I normally live in Manchester, but..." quite often now. It seems to just roll off the tongue, and I love our house in Manchester to bits. But more on that later.
Time flew by, as time generally does, and I got all settled and made friends that I'm sure will last quite a while. Well, if we're still friends now after several months apart, it's got to bode well, right?

I can't believe that all of that was a year ago. I'm going to try to join more societies and be more active in things other than Chem Eng and Connexional Methodism this year. Let's see how that one turns out...

I'm sure I am not the only reader there is out there!
