Before I get into my post I would like to say a big thank you to those who read and comment on my posts. I really enjoy the blogging world and it makes me happy to pop on to the computer and read your comments.
This has been an exciting week. I managed to get myself a little job. I realised that I wasn't going to get back into the world of work and be able to pick up where I left off for numerous reasons. The most important one being that I need to be around for my girls as their daddy has a job which does not allow him to be here all the time. I am their continuity and I am happy to be able to provide that for them. The job I had was a consuming one, and I knew I wouldn't be able to put the energy into it that was needed. As a result I have found myself a connected job but with less responsibility and far shorter hours (and, of course, less pay, but hey...) I have really been feeling the need to get back to work recently, I'm a sociable person and as the girls spend more and more time out of the house I seem to spend more and more time alone it it. It was getting me down and I found myself obsessing about silly things. Definitely time for a shake up.
There are lots of us bloggers who periodically think about going back to work and the benefits or disadvantages of doing so. I hope it will be possible for me to keep you posted with how it is going and my feelings leading up to it. It's a big step for me and I want to document it, perhaps it might even be useful to some others who are in a similar quandary.
In my happy crafty world, where the normal worries of everyday life are not allowed to show their pesky little faces and where this blog mostly resides, I have finished my Flying Diamonds Shawl...
It was a correct assumption that the shawl would increase in size with blocking. I've put the details on my ravelry project page here.
foam mats for children to play on at a really good price. I have found they are perfect for blocking larger objects and live very happily out of the way under my sofa.
Right, that's all from me for today. I have started a new and exciting little crochet project but I'm going to save it up to share on Wednesday. I hope you have all had lovely weekends.
