It is four years to the day since I started blogging. My first blog post was mainly about the GSA degree show. (This year I didn't get around to blogging about the degree show, so I will just say quickly that I really liked Kate Costigan's illustrations.)
I often feel like my life doesn't change much or that I'm just coasting along/not doing life properly, but when I think back to how things were four years ago, I realise a lot has changed. Since then I have qualified as a primary teacher, left teaching (hooray!) and got a job as a subtitler, the first job I've ever had where I've felt comfortable. I've blogged a lot, crafted a fair bit, set up an online shop, sold my wares at various craft markets. I've had a baby (the best baby ever!) and been diagnosed with advanced heart failure. That's like a full 30-minute episode of a soap opera right there, albeit one that probably doesn't do so great in the ratings. Right now I'm living in the doof-doof moment of the heart diagnosis and finding that cliffhangers in real life are a lot less fun than those on screen :(
I had thought about having a giveaway to celebrate these four years in the business, but instead I have decided to do things a little differently and surprise four of my readers. I will say no more about the nature of the surprise other than that it is pleasant, so no need to be looking over your shoulder or living in fear! I have already selected the lucky four. Could it be you?
