Alive and Kicking!
It has been a while since I updated my journal with anything other than random stuff, Easter wishes and Photography Weekly! I got to grips with my inbox last night and sorted out the final few queries and DD suggestions that had been sent my way - keep them coming! I would love to see some of the other general photography galleries suggested to me - I'm getting a lot of people and portraits right now! Life is ticking over nicely, and this coming week will be my 23rd year of it! Twenty three feels an odd age to be turning, a sort of floundering I don't know what this age means kind of age. I don't gain anything, other than another year of life of course which is great! I don't even get to be classified as an older driver yet. Grump. Two more years! (Nobody wants to be classified as old but if it means the car insurance premium goes down then roll on OLDNESS).
All work and no play...
Work is crazy busy - we're a small team and the deputy manager just left and a new girl just started in one of the areas we cover, with another starting in a few weeks - so we're stretched a bit and it's all hands on deck for the training. I love it though - next month will see me finally confirmed in post which means pension kicks in, sickness is covered for up to two months and of course there is a tiny pay I rise! I started with the company back in August 2011 but a couple of months before being confirmed in post they had a restructure, and I effectively got a promotion. So everything reset itself and I had to start all over again.
Hopefully May 1st should see me a happy Kaz-D!
Well, that's still ticking over nicely. I feel like lately I've worked on it a bit more as well which has been nice. This time last year I would take a few shots a week, if that. Now I take them daily thanks to the 365 Photography Challenge! If you're lacking inspiration and drive, I recommend you DO that challenge.
I spent Easter being unfortunately very ill. As some will have noticed from my photos, we're having work done to the house which is thankfully drawing to a close this coming week. But it has meant garage conversions, doors being cut, plastering, walls falling down, painting...dust...And me being me, I'm allergic to most of that! So my lungs filled up and stopped working properly. I was quite cross because it would have been my first holiday since December and I spent it moping around!
As for me, I'm studying hard, forever dusting my room, trying to get embarrassing photographs of Buddy and in general being me! I shall, hopefully in the near future, have a website launch to share with you all thanks to the rather wonderful TouchedD Watch this space..
