Hello again

I'm still here.  A lot has happened in the last two weeks.  I've been on holiday, but more about that in a minute.

I've currently got a backlog of 917 posts to read.  That's not as many as I expected, but I'll be making a start on those.  Once that is done I'd like to tell you all about the last 2 wonderful weeks where I've been on a cruise ship.  Hopefully I'll have processed some photos to share.

The other news is that my first contract has ended and so I'll be looking for my next one.  Quite convenient timing really since that hopefully means I can stay at home over the Olympics and get back out there straight after.

I hope you're all well... I'll be back in a couple of days.

Where did June go?

Well.  It's July.  The summer solstice has been and gone.  We're rolling towards winter.  How did that happen?

I've a terrible feeling I missed the TUSAL this month.  But if you're interested, see last month's post.  I think I've put in about 5 stitches since then, so my pot looks exactly the same.

Our redecorating has at least now progressed to the point where the bags of books that had to come off the bookshelf are now back on the bookshelf so that we can move around the flat again without going flying (not that I need obstacles to help with that).  The picture frame is back on the wall and it looks vaguely like 'home' again.  However, I'm trying not to think about the bathroom that still needs painting (and probably re-sealing), nor the bedrooms which we said 'eurgh, that seems like way too much, maybe next year'.  (we'll see, shall we?)

I do feel slightly guilty also that my husband has done most of the work, but then I make myself feel better by saying it's really a man's job and I'm just a weak girl.  That's my excuse, and I'm sticking with it.  Hopefully I'm now at the end of the boring home decorating posts, and next time I'll be able to show you some stitching progress, since I can once again get to my frame. Hooray!
