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.
