Wow, it's been an absolute age since I last posted on LJ.  I don't even know if anyone still uses LJ apart from [ profile] glammetalkitten 

Lucas is growing like a weed, despite going through phases of eating bugger all.  We're waiting to find out what school he'll be going to and should find out in a month.  It's crazy to think that in a few months he'll be starting primary school!  (And at some point I should try to get my head around the English educational system which makes no sense whatsoever to me.)

My brother and his girlfriend had their first baby this month---Caitlin Lily---so I am a proper Aunt for the first time, and I will shortly be an aunt-by-marriage for the second time as Dave's sister is about 32weeks with her second.  I have been crocheting some cute little baby things and not feeling broody at all, it has to be said.  I am grumpy enough with one child, so I hate to think what I'd be like with two!

I've been catching up on loads of TV series that I missed at the time.  I finally got around to watching S1 of Alias which I loved, despite the rather predictable ending.  I started watching S1 of Supernatural yesterday after watching most of S4 (or was it S5) on-demand and really enjoying it.  I must say that Sam has not improved with age, whereas Dean has.  I was also quite excited to discover that Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays their dad.  I love that guy!  Dave and I have also started watching Sanctuary via LoveFILM and we're trying to unearth the Battlestar Galactica miniseries so that I can start re-watching the whole thing; I dropped out mid S2 I think and I'd like to find out how the whole thing ends.

I have also been crafting little bits and bobs for around the house.  Neither Dave nor I are particularly keen on emptying rooms to have them painted, although we will have to at some point, so I have taken to making bits of wall art.  Of course, it would be even better if I could get them hung up :P  I may have to get busy with a hammer and nails... I am still waging an intermittent war on clutter but I suspect that I might need a total personality transplant to achieve a clutter-free existence.  I think I am just a messy, messy person.

Incidentally, in case anyone has spent two years worrying about whether I got Dave's cake mended and completed, yes, yes I did.  And it was awesome.

I'm still here, if mostly reading rather than posting. It's great to see you post here. (And I still can't believe your baby is that old.)

I just came back myself.

I loved the first season of Alias, and I stopped right there. I have no idea if that was a good decision or not, but I suspect I didn't miss much.

Mark and I tried to get into Supernatural. We are currently somewhere in season 2 and have been for ages. I don't think we've watched an episode in a year. Love Dean, meh on Sam, lovelovelove Dean's car--and you know how the X-Files had standalone episodes plus an overall storyline? I hated the overall storyline episodes, and that's prettttty much how I feel about Supernatural, too, which is a large part of the reason my motivation to move on to the next episode is so low.

I might need a total personality transplant to achieve a clutter-free existence.

My current solution to the clutter problem is to move the cutter to the rubbish bin. It is not a cost-effective solution, and I am endlessly mystified as to how the house gets cluttered all over again so quickly. I may have to move the rubbish bin to just outside the front door and start dropping stuff into it on the way into the house. That should keep the clutter out, right?!

Thank you for the cake update. I had been chewing my nails over it all this time.
