I've been scarce, because the Real World has kept us a little busy, and we have some News. It kinda went like this:
Her Majesty's Government says "pull in!" Consider having quiet civil wedding to keep visas clean. Decide it's not a good idea because we might get lazy and keep postponing the big party wedding. Find out that sproglet is on the way. That was quick! Yay! Decide keeping visas clean is a very good idea. Convince family that big party wedding will still happen, we promise. There Will Be A Buffet. Have quiet civil wedding. Yay! Resign from work, flog half our worldly possessions, put the other half in boxes pending cross-equatorial trek, clear out of flat, relocate to Durban until we fly, get paperwork sorted, get final visas approved, Ronwen starts exams, I work like crazy to catch up a year's worth of assignments before cut-off. Only just make it.
The dust is finally starting to settle, and now it's just leisurely studying, doing the final admin, and some much-needed unwinding before we're on our way to the UK. In the meantime, blogging is likely to continue to be sparse, but at least you know why :-)
