It has finally happened, my blog reader new posts section is empty! Ok, so I only read back a certain number of weeks, but I’m all caught up. This was done by having a stack of files I have had to go through over the last two days. And as every one takes a couple of mins to open, it’s been perfect little slices of time to read blog posts. Please forgive me if I haven’t left a comment. I do love seeing what everyone has been up to even when I stay silent.
I know I’ve been really quiet since I got back from NZ the last time. I’ve been a little depressed for the last few weeks. So I’ve felt the need to withdraw into myself somewhat. And pamper myself. Which means ignoring everything I should be doing and spending most of the time I’m not at work, knitting or sewing. It has made for a productive month and a half though. In additiion to the 12 FWQ blocks I’ve shown you, I’ve also knitted a shawl, finished a scarf and knitted half a throw. I’m hoping to block the shawl and scarf this weekend, so pics soon.
But it’s time to stop letting my mood win and start getting other things done. I now have just three weeks left of work. There’s a lot to finish off in my current job between now and then. I also have a list of work I need to do for my new job before I start. And add in packing up my flat. Then moving day will be the 6th, with the new job set to start on the 11th. Busy, busy.
At least I have a new home to move to. After nine, yes nine!, refusals for renting with a cat, I finally got a landlord to say yes. It’s a small two bedroom terrace house on the outskirts of Saffron Walden, just 5min walk away from the shuttle bus stop to work and 15min away from the public bus stop to work. About 15-20 min away from the town centre and shopping district. A good friend kindly viewed the property for me so I could rent it, and will be helping out on moving day, meeting the cat and movers while I’m still on my way from Cardiff.
Macros has been at the vet twice this week, and will be going back on Mon. He had two claws on each fron paw imbedded in his paw pads. One really deeply leaving a badly infected foot. So the first visit was the painful one to take them out, the next for an antibiotic jab, back again on Mon for another jab and probably some antibiotic tablets. After that hopefully no more visits as that will take it up to £150!
So, I think that’s you all caught up. I’ll be back with pics in a day or two.
