I have to tell you my exciting news...I've just been offered a job as Nursery Class Teacher at a local school starting on Thursday. I'm really pleased as I've been doing supply since September and never know if I will be working or not. This job is really perfect for me because it's my favourite age group and it's mornings only. That leaves me lots of time to do the other things I like...hoovering, ironing...
Were you worried ? Did you think I had turned out to be rather odd ? No, I will have plenty of time for sewing, crochet, and meeting my friends for tea ! Perfect !
I will have to scale down my craft business a little and I won't be able to do the liner port but the regular income will make family life easier. I do think I have learned a lesson about how much money I wasted when I was working full time. I have spent the last 8 months not working regularly and the purchases I make now are much more special and I tend to delay them until I really need them. I hope I can take that lesson forward and not go back to my profligate ways!
I had coffee with my friend Ursula this morning, she brought me a lovely bunch of flowers picked from her garden this morning. The wisteria is heavenly isn't it? There's also a lot of lemon geranium which is senting the whole room.
She has also lent me some new books.
Another friend gave me some last weekend so now I have a very satisfying pile just waiting to be read.I'm going to start with Comfort Food I think.
The flower blanket project is still rumbling along in the background,, I have spells of making squares and spells of sewing up and sewing in the pesky little ends. I would like it to be square eventually...ideally.
It began as a "stash busting " blanket but it has been so effective I now have to buy more wool in order to finish it. One step forwad and one back I think ...
