What’s occurring?*

This is one of those posts where I’m trying to convey a sense of my life while obfuscating details and disguising emotions. My chosen method for obfuscation, disguise and display today is a list. Blogging is a strange thing.

  • I have now made two skirts. I have another project on the go, something lined up for tomorrow, and a head full of future ideas.
  • I have got really stuck in to a knitting project  which was promised for last Christmas and may take the rest of my life, but I’m really enjoying it, and I hope it’s loved when it finally reaches the intended recipient. Jokes aside this should be before said recipient’s birthday.
  • I am very excited about some future possibilities based around where we are moving to next, and the possibilities this opens up. I am considering carefully my future options, but at some point in my life it’s possible that I won’t be working from home and playing ‘house’! This is a career dream and I am a) so concerned about internet security that I am convinced there are spies everywhere who will find this blog and think I’m not someone they want and b) convinced I will jinx myself by revealing any more.
  • I am playing in a fantastic orchestra. We’re doing some amazing repertoire and I love having my cello out again.
  • The scenery around here is fantastic and now S’s walk home takes him past the seaside I have taken to meeting him to walk or run home.
  • We will be moving in the summer to a bigger city. While I love our seaside home, I am looking forward to all the extra fun things this will involve, like climbing, a new choir, more board games and a sense that more is going on.
  • I seriously considered joining the WI a few weeks ago.
  • We have been playing a lot of board games. I am really enjoying them, and starting to get semi competent at them, which is great.
  • I want to make ALL THE CLOTHES EVER.

That’s approximately it from here. There is more, but it’s pretty similar to what’s there. I did have a job in sales. I wasn’t very good at it. I left before I was asked to leave, and while I am now working hard to feel busy, and I’m sad I never started to turn friendly acquaintances from work into genuine friends, I’m glad I left.

Blog-wise, S has started a new blog about the things he enjoys doing. I think I might do similar – attempt to write once a week about the things I have done that have been fun. It might encourage me to finish more of the things I start and make more time for the things I enjoy, rather than just crashing out in front of the telly of an evening.

*At some point in the less-employed parts of the last few months, I (years after everyone else) actually watched Gavin & Stacey. I loved it.

  1. Yeaah, life-related update wooo. 🙂 I would like to see more of more people blogging. Come on others, what’s occurring? I’ll blog me mine if you blog me yours.

  2. I would love to be able to chat to you and find out more informations at some point, because all of this sounds very exciting!

  3. So what have you enjoyed doing this week? I’m waiting for your weekly update…unless that’s a whole new project unconnected to this net space.
