Happy 2015!

Happy 2015 to everyone, and I hope this new year brings many lovely, good and worthwhile things to you all.

Like quite a few people I know, I’m more than glad to see the back of 2014. It started out well with a move to our new house in February, and I had a few enjoyable months decorating and buying and upcycling bits of furniture.  My photographic mojo also came back – slowly at first, but then gaining momentum.  Sometimes I think these dry spells are necessary for future growth, and although this one looked like it was never going to end, now that it has I feel more motivated and inspired than I was before.

So that’s the good news. The bad news is that Geoff has been out of work for the last six months or so, and our financial situation is getting very worrying indeed.  I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire, and lots of plans, but nothing that’s come to fruition yet and even when it does my earning power isn’t enough to keep us going on its own.  We’re very much hoping that 2015 will turn out to be a much better year for us and that work for both us will turn up in the near future and allow us to get back on our financial feet again.

Early in the year I let my blog go and have barely posted anything since then.  I’ve missed it, and I’m aiming to get back in the groove again with regular posts.  There may be a few changes in the type of content I include – I have a lot of plans for new directions I want to go in and will be writing more about some of these in the next few weeks.  Till then, let’s hope 2015 is a good one for all of us!
