Second week back at school though not for me this year, which feels odd. The editing course I had psyched myself up to take was cancelled. Editing isn't really my thing it is a useful addition to my toolkit.
Second week back for mr ebb and the Wee Guy too. Though it's nice to have peace around the house I do miss them. My productivity has improved though.
My goal this year is to keep exploring my freelance options to see what I can do, what is the best use of my time and how I can spread my sources out to diversify a bit more.
My other goal is to stop myself getting completely bat-shit overbusy again, if bat poop can be considered a busy by product that is.

It's me and him.
We're at a British Airways party - it's a rodeo theme hence mr ebb's neck attire and jacket.
The organisers had installed a mechanical bull for us partygoers - hence the evening dress for me, which dates the photo as post-1998.
At the time, at the grand age of 34-ish, I considered myself middle-aged.
Blimey! How little did I know.
Fifteen years or so on and I'm only just labelling life as halfway through.
Note to my younger self - you ain't seen nothing.
And it's mostly all good.

This year I'd like to stay in the picture. Is like to stay in the picture in focus not as a fuzzy blur of hyperactivity. I've noticed a lot of 'good riddance - glad to see the back of you 2013' year end posts on other blogs. This isn't one of them though I am pleased to start 2014.
2013 was the year I upgraded my qualifications with a Canadian certificate from an intensive nine-week course and then landed not one but three jobs. I worked through the summer, coping with mr ebb traveling and the Wee guy's vacation. We managed, even had a couple of week's holiday in whistler.
But I resigned from one of the jobs at the end of the summer.
2013 was the year I got paid to write but it was also the year I learned what my time means to me.
I hope to continue exploring it this year and refining what it means for me to work in, around and in spite of my family.
Happy new year.
