Where have I been?

So it’s December.
The time of year where it’s stupidly cold, people are stupidly cheery and I stupidly spend money.
I jest, I jest. I love December really.

So where have I been since May?

Unfortunately at 1:00am on Wednesday 27th February one of our beloved Fancy Rats, Daisy, had to be put to sleep.

She had not been very well for a while, ever since she first got a mammary tumour. The tumour was successfully removed and luckily never returned.

For the next couple of months, Daisy and her cage-mate, Deirdre, were on and off antibiotics because one of them had blood in their urine. We figured that this was Daisy in the end, after they were separated briefly.
Gemma and I were happy with the way things had progressed when suddenly, late last year, Daisy had developed a little lump above her right eye.

First Blog

Well this is it. The first real blog I have ever written. I have written many before during my college days and my SharePoint training but never a real one. I should write something profound.

I have nothing.

Truth be told, I’m not very good with social media or anything of the sort. A couple of years ago, I had Myspace for a while then gave it up because I rarely used it. I swore never to get a Facebook account but eventually did and again, never use it and now I swear never to get a twitter account. I probably will at some point. I have also never used Instagram.

Everything is good right now anyway. I have a lovely, amazing girlfriend, Gemma. I live in a nice, spacious Edwardian house. Only downside is that it is rented. I wish I had a mortgage and was a home owner but it is hard to build up credit and even save up for a deposit. I have wonderful pets; A Border Collie Dog, Ellie. A Moggy Cat, Sassy. Two Fancy Rats, Daisy and Deirdre and a Green Iguana, Sydney. I have a great family, who I see on occasion. My job as an Advanced Apprentice at Capgemini is brilliant.

All I can think of for now. If anyone actually get round to reading this and wants to ask anything else, just ask.



P.S. If anyone knows how to stop snoring, short of surgery, let me know. I have tried everything.
