Hi everyone. Sorry that it’s taken so long to update … Once again, real life has gotten in the way and both writers block and a lack of time is preventing me from updating. I do have a couple of valid reasons for this:

1: My library authority is currently going through a complete reorganisation and as a consequence many of my colleagues will be losing their jobs by the end of this fiscal year (April). All the full time library assistants at my scale are safe for the next financial year, which is a relief, but as you can appreciate, the atmosphere in work is really bad at the moment. The situation in regards to my job will be revisited next year, and by all accounts, I might not be so lucky next time. As a result, I’ve been spending most of my free time searching and applying for jobs. No time for blogging, or catching up on my favourite sims 3 stories!

2: A couple of years ago, whilst working in a disadvantaged area of the city, I took out an injunction against a member of the public who made my work life a living hell. The final straw came when he threatened to slit my throat. This coming from a guy who beat up a police officer and who, although it was never proven, was responsible for setting fire to a local church. Anyway, the same guy has just been sentenced to twelve years in prison for killing another man in a rage over a motorbike. I know this doesn’t affect me personally, but it just brought back the whole thing, and confirmed for me how lucky I was. I always knew that he was capable of this, and it’s tragic that someone had to die before the court realised it.

I actually managed to catch up with some of my favourite sims blogs this weekend. In terms of my own blog, I’ve still got writers block … especially where the Stratford DITFT is concerned, but I’ll try and update soon, I promise! As for the Bookabets, I have so many screenshots I’m in danger of forgetting the order they’re supposed to go in! In game, Arya and Hunter are married and their first ‘B’ baby has been born. I’ve forbidden myself from playing the game until I’ve updated and so I have no idea what the baby even looks like! I can’t wait to toddlify the little darling … I guess that means I’ll have to hurry up and update soon then.

Until then, send me hugs guys, as I’m feeling a little low at the moment Sad smile

I'm a library assistant from South Wales with a love of reading, writing and the cinema. I don't fall into the normal cliched view of a library assistant as I have bright read hair, love rock music and I'm not that quiet!! I have two beautiful dogs ... an 8 year old Scottie called Jet, and a 2 year old hyperactive terror Westie called Deefa.

    Wow. It sounds like things have been really rough over there. I’m glad you’re dropping by to say hi and give us an update. I am, of course, simply dying to see more of the dynamic duo of Arya and Hunter. It sounds like they’d be a big escape from your current stresses, but not so much that it’s worth losing sleep over.

    I know that job stress in particular can really suck your soul out because you have to marinate in it all day. I’m sending all the positive thoughts I can muster.

      Thanks. I’m getting there! To top it all off, I’ve been suffering from Insomnia and a bad head cold, no doubt brought on by all the stress. Had to have three days sick leave last week 😦

      The good thing is that I’ve got two more work days left before Christmas leave starts. Hopefully I’ll have the time after Christmas to finally update! I’ve laid all the screenshots out and have started writing it so that’s one thing! I do miss my pixelated little Bookabets … Gelert especially.

      The positive thoughts do help though, so thank you so much 🙂
