Only a few more days to go!

I know I have been really poor with my blog recently and I apologise - time and sanity have not been on my side!

Firstly last week was the end of my 6 years on the Embroiderers' Guild committee - the last 2 years of which I have been chairman! These last 2 years have been extremely hard work and the meeting last week was no exception!

Secondly as you know I am working my notice out at my 'part time' job and again this is hard going at the moment. The problem with working for a very small company is that there is no one else to carry the burden of a busy period and then couple that with an over emotional boss who has the royal hump you are leaving and it is no wonder I feel emotionally drained and shattered every night! I have lots of exciting stuff to show and tell and promise to get around to it very soon. Knitting is the only thing keeping me sane at the moment - although him in doors is complaining about me doing it at the moment so even that is causing problems!

October is nearly here and with the falling of the leaves should bring the turning over of a new leaf for me. I will be tidy and keep up with my jobs in the house, I will be there to sort out the man to finish the garden and I will supervise the topsy turvy of new bathrooms and get the lounge painted. I will stay sane and I will keep knitting no matter what - it is a physical impossibility to sit still at night and watch the TV without something in my hands to do and if that is not good enough then heaven help me! Oh and just as importantly I will keep blogging even if I bore you to tears and you stop reading.

You had better remind me of this when I start to flag around January! S xx

You've got your work cut out but bear up it's not going to be long before you can leave the humpy boss behind.

Happy knitting - it really is the best therapy - and I know what you mean about housework as well :)

Good to see you back.You've got to knit.My OH would complain if I didn't because I would fidget,keep getting up and going doing things and generally interupt the telly watching.He's very well trained and reads out any writing on the screen like "3 months later","London 1912" etc!!

I WILL promise to read your blog and send encouraging comments! Can't wait to see the exciting things you've been knitting and 'creating'. My OH moans that I knit all the time too - I just ignore him. It seems to work! He also moans that I leave yarn and books scattered all round the house, take up too much space in the wardrobe with my stash & yaddah yaddah yaddah! You are not alone!
