Sorry I haven't been here for a while. I went AWOL after the summer. Things got crazy at work, moved house in October (ultra stressful - should have been September). Could only keep up with one thread.
Just as things settled I found out I was back in the 262 comp again. Couldn't bring myself to make an appearance in case it was viewed as trying to grab votes (by others not you lot, I know you would never think that).
Now it's all over I feel free from scrutiny and can return. However, this time something's different of course, this time I am actually going to Paris - woo hoo!
Thank you so much to those who voted. I know PC was out drumming up support and I'm really grateful for that. Thanks also for the messages of support on my thread and elsewhere, that means alot.
For the past week I have been mostly a 6 or 7 on the infamous stool chart. It has been soooo much more stressful than last year with these vote counters. I hope they change that next year.
I see that you've already recruited some more troops from the process. Sticky and ArrowsLou I met at bootcamp as they were in my group and are just lovely people.
And at bootcamp I also got to meet the wonderful KS. Really gutted you didn't make it all the way, it would have been great to have you in the final 5. Do apply next year as that's the 3rd year running a second time bootcamper has made the final! Although if they don't change the voting make sure your mental health is tip top or you'll have a nervous breakdown!
Please forgive me not reading back. I think it would take forever given the speed this thread moves at and I'm already 4 days behind on work matters
What did I miss over the last 3 months? Is it possible to get a quick summary?
