It’s been a bit quiet around here…


Well, it has been a bit qui­et around here late­ly which I’m well aware of, and if there are any faith­ful read­ers out there I’m sor­ry. As a faith­ful read­er of a num­ber of blogs myself I know how much I appre­ci­ate reg­u­lar blog posts!

This week was Chris’ last week of class­es for the semes­ter, and what a semes­ter it has been. The lack of updates has large­ly been because of busy­ness — Chris is over­load­ing with 5 sub­jects this semes­ter, and I’m doing 2 sub­jects and work­ing full time so it’s been a bit crazy! There has also been quite a lot of things tak­ing up our emo­tion­al ener­gy, par­tic­u­lar­ly over the past month or so includ­ing con­sid­er­ing plans for the next stage of our jour­ney, as well as sig­nif­i­cant changes hap­pen­ing in the lives of some of our fam­i­ly and friends. Unfortunately none of these things are at a stage where we are able to pub­licly adver­tise them on here, although we hope that we can share some of them soon. However, we are hap­py to share what’s been hap­pen­ing with peo­ple indi­vid­u­al­ly so please feel free to get in con­tact with us if you would like.

In the mean­time you might be inter­est­ed in some of the more pub­lic things we have been doing:

- This week I got an oppor­tu­ni­ty to co-author a piece on gam­bling adver­tis­ing to chil­dren. You can read it here

- I also had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to put togeth­er a post about a book project which I have been help­ing with (on the side­lines). Have a look here

- This semes­ter Chris has been co-edit­ing the Ridley stu­dent mag­a­zine in which you can read lots of inter­est­ing arti­cles writ­ten by stu­dents at Ridley.

And because I love them, our friends were on The Project a cou­ple of weeks ago in a sto­ry that is well worth watch­ing. Skip ahead to the bit about post-natal psychosis.
