The Christmas decorations are all down and packed away in their boxes. The furniture has been reshuffled, some back to it's original spot, some to a new spot. Even the quilts got a shufty about. Once the advent came down off the staircase, this took it's place.
The butterflies which usually hang on the stair are in the sitting room, where this beauty was hanging last year. So far, no one has noticed.....
The house got a good clean up and I even managed to dig out my sewing room. I have a floor in there and I can get at my desk and the sewing machine. Now I need to find something to sew. In a room full of fabric and works in progress I'm spoiled for choice. I really should get on with some more of mums projects, maybe I could get something finished for her birthday. February 1st?
While I was up there I had a dig through my huge pile of magazines. I was ruthless and only kept a few. They have projects which for me are 'MUST DO's'. I've been very good and put all the 'would like to do's' and 'maybe one days' into this pile here.
Is anybody missing an issue of Australian Homespun or patchwork and quilting? I'm happy to mail one or two, to where ever, even back to Aus if you like! LOL.
Not content with sorting the house, I got stuck into the laptop too. I've had a tidy up of my documents and emails. I've been through my favorites and updated my blog list. And all of that without a day off work! Speaking of work, I've been looking at the new rota, this new team leader of ours is pretty good. I seem to have a share of late shifts, something the old team leader never managed was to share out the late shifts. Yes, I'll continue to look for another job. It's disheartening to keep coming second best. Every interview I have I've been told I'm the runner up. The last gentleman who had to tell me that was very sympathetic and said that he couldn't give me any negative feedback, I was simply pipped at the post by someone who had more experience. This is my year, I will find another job.
