Each week is so full of changes at present...the renovation is progressing and I am beginning to sort out this house ready for a mid-September move. I am hoping my garden blossoms before then as I would love to see it one more time! DS has been home for a mid-semester break...it is always lovely to have him here and he helped with some spring pruning and rubbish dump runs. I am working on my last uni assignment which is naturally due the week before we move- the most boring topic in the world has not been very motivating when I have so much else to do.
I would have to say my mood is generally elevated at present (did you guess that from my title?)...so many changes happening at present and I seem to have lost the ability to sleep...one dear friend noted my mania on an email...that was scary! So I am trying to do a little something creative to offset my imminent psychosis (the sewing machine is pretty much out at present as I could really do some damage with that!).
I have been knitting this bag from a recent Country Style for my DD (hmmm knitting and repetitive actions...calming?) the kit and pattern are available here...
leadlight patterns for the front windows...
and a freshly dressed facade (before anyone laments the blank wall, there is a small flowering tree ready to go there!). It is looking really good and we now have windows except for the bay.
Changes have been happening with work too...I have left one job as of last Monday...very sad as they are a great bunch, some I have worked with for twenty years, so I just left without fuss to avoid any public tears. They gave me these beautiful flowers...I shall miss them. I have committed to my other job until early October to allow for a handover period. On the new job front, I have had one interview and have another next week...no issues picking up work in Newcastle. Any wonder the mood is high????
Have you been watching dear Lea race around the Outback? Watch her adventure on her blog...she even has hold of the yellow jersey!
