Sometimes real life gets in the way.

It’s worth pointing out that what we do here, we do purely on a voluntary basis.  We don’t get paid, but do this because we feel it’s the right thing to do.  We all have lives away from the site.  We work, have families, need to do our laundry, drive the kids to hospital appointments etc.  These past few weeks for example have been particularly hectic for me.  As the only member of the family that drives, when our eldest moved into his first flat, it was up to me to transport all his belongings to the new place.  Add to that my car deciding to refuse to work (still not fixed, but I have the new part ready and it’ll be done as soon as the weather stays dry long enough to fit it), redecorating and moving my “office” into his old bedroom (still in disarray as I’m waiting on a new carpet to go down before permanently getting things fixed in position), me being hit by a stomach bug (thankfully over now) and still having to do all the normal things that need doing on a daily basis, the site has had to take a bit of a back seat lately.  Next week I’m away at a conference as a representative of the site, and that’s sandwiched between seeing three different live shows around the country.  But I promise after all that, things’ll be back to normal.
