Caroline - I often see good things you've written on my Facebook feed. Good to know you're doing well.
I barely come in here now any more either. No kids for me, but then I'm married to another dude, so that's to be expected. We do have a one-eyed cat who essentially fills the child niche, though.
I'm now a Scientist (my actual job title), working on Next Generation Sequencing technology, which is the next big thing in diagnostic medicine. Still living in Manchester, but with vague plans to move abroad in the next few years. Hopefully to Amsterdam, or somewhere similarly liberal, chilled and interesting.
