My excuses are many and varied. Beginning with the time of year…it’s a bit manic around our place with 5 birthdays and the lead up to Christmas celebrations and get togethers. Not to mention gift purchasing and it was our turn to host the Christmas Day Family Dinner.
My other excuses are to do with technology, I have a new smart phone the Samsung Galaxy 2 and a Galaxy 7” Tab2 that was a birthday gift……needless to say my poor camera and lap top have been sadly neglected. I have become very good at ”Facebook” updating due to the ease and simplicity of having all the requirements in one place everywhere I go.
At the end of the day when I am almost comatose in the lounge chair it is a piece of cake to simply tap into Facebook to stay in touch.
Now if Windows Live Writer had an Android App we wouldn’t be having this conversation!!!LOL
Stitching, card making and cooking has being happening:-
It was our third Christmas with Brooklynn, she is so much fun and we could all sit and watch play for hours.
My other news is that I have finally bitten the bullet and will be looking for a new job for 2013. It was about this time last year that I put into a post how badly I was being treated, and while a few things improved, overall, I was still being offered the scraps, roster wise, and I finally had enough.
I’ve registered with a recruitment agency, and have had a temporary assignment that I will return to in the new year. Ultimately a full time job is my aim, but I’m keeping my options open to all on offer.
I’ve reached my goal weight and between the extra confidence of feeling healthy, the testing and interview I had with the agency I’m feeling very positive about my future, and I no longer have the feeling of having the life sucked out of me by a conniving and manipulating supervisor, who has waged a vendetta against me since I went above her earlier this year with my complaints.
I’m over it! and moving on.
So yes I’ve been busy with life in general, and crafting has taken a bit of a back seat, but that’s ok for now.
We are still waiting for our new grandchild to arrive. Leah is a few days overdue and really feeling the heat, although it hasn’t stopped her from carrying on as usual. She is out today getting a few Boxing Days Sale bargains!
I’ve joined a Scatter-days Blog Post group. The organizer, Cinzia has done a great job of getting us together and sending out our first challenge. I’m hopeful the challenge will keep me coming back to my blog to keep it updated, with the added bonus of focusing on something a little different in 2013. Our first post is due 5th January 2013.
Thanks for visiting.
