Apologies for being profoundly rubbish on the blogging front.
As per usual, whenever I go silent, it's a good sign; it means life is so busy that I've inevitably triple booked myself and don't have time to update my blog. So yes, all is fine; I am well, I am very happy and I am extremely busy.
March is always a busy month and my favourite month of the year; the weather is warming up, we're heading towards the end of the spring term, but predominantly because it's my birthday. I had a fantastic day and a wonderful celebration, dancing the night away with fabulous family and friends. Below is a picture to demonstrate the classy and stylish celebrations that were held (it was a 90s themed do, we didn't just inadvertently all decide to dress up as Spice Girls).
That's all of an update you're getting today I'm afraid, instead I'm going to list some blogs that I think you should check out when I'm being naughty and lax at writing:
Yes I'm a tad biased as Lucy is my sister, but she's a bloody amazing writer. Just take a look, particularly at this recent post which I thought was particularly fab due to it's frankness and honesty.
Nick's son Adam has neuroblastoma. I have a connection with this family in the fact that I am Adam's music teacher, or was when he was well enough to be in school. The family are desperately trying to raise the money to get Adam to the US for life-saving treatment so please do pop over to his appeal website and read a bit about the family and the campaign as well.
I just love her style of writing, and also the stories of Seb, her rather cute dog. Jac is a double lung transplant recipient like myself.

Written by Tor and Rachy (both waiting for lungs), but earlier this month Rachy received her call and is so far doing very well. If you want to learn more about the wait for transplant, this blog is one for you.
Another lovely lady waiting for lungs; I love her honesty, her style (both in writing and in her fab clothes) and her ability to pull off bright red lipstick!
The end of term is looming (and with it plenty of concerts) but then for the Easter Holidays, which I am extremely excited about as it will hopefully provide me with an opportunity to catch up with myself. Watch this space.
