Young Man: Changes

I guess it's been a while, huh? Since a significant enough number of you check the blog daily (inexplicably in my opinion), I feel like I should probably write some kind of explanation.

If you've been around for a while, you know that I studied to be a teacher at school. You'll also know that I had a long-term sub job for a while (from August to mid-October). My last post was pretty soon before that job ended. During that job, posting was great. I wore a tie every day, and was never short of (what I saw as) interesting combos.

But that ended. I'm back to working at a pizzeria now, which is fun because I love cooking (especially pizza) and it's pretty laid back. But the uniform is t-shirt and jeans, which isn't very interesting. The money is also less, which curbs interest in cruising for clothes. I still dress up for Sundays, but I've been trying to cut back on my internet time on the Sabbath.

But the biggest change is that my wife and I are going to have our first baby in April. We don't know what it is yet, but I'm rooting for a boy so I can put a Cordial Churchman bow on him. We are super excited, but having a baby coming really puts the ka-bosh on buying superfluous clothing items.

So there ya go. There are a bunch of excuses for why I haven't written here in a while. I've been updating The Strayaway Child pretty regularly (if you like the tumblr thing). I'll try and put some Sunday outfits up here every once in a while, plus some gift guides I've got brewing.

See ya here sometime soon.
