I'm still in shock to be honest. My application was a bit of a "give it a whirl" thing and blimey I've gone and got the post! I'll be very sad to leave the lovely team I work with and I'll miss the work too because the countryside is so close to my heart and this job is quite different. But it means I'll be working much closer to home, no more 80 mile round trips to the office, three times a week, and instead I'll be round the corner from my mum-in-laws, in a nice little market town.
I'm feeling a bit over-whelmed and daunted by the size of the task and I keep having wobbles that it's all beyond me. But it really is time for a change and this could be the beginning of bigger and better things for all of us. So, no more leaving for work at 7.15am and getting home just as the boys are going to bed and time for fun like this before they do. More time for Woody to concentrate on his writing and comedy dreams and a few more pennies in the pot to keep the wolf from the door and buy fabulous treats like these...
Do you think my vintage pillowcase obsession is going a bit far? I've realised I'm not the only one with this affliction in the blogging world, its massively addictive isn't it! This is the third pair I've bought in as many weeks. Aren't they just lovely, I've been keeping my eyes peeled for some candy striped ones for ages but no joy so bought a brushed cotton pair from ebay - then saw these the very next day! Oh well, the whole lot only cost £2.50 so hardly outrageous. The brushed cotton pair will be cosier for winter and the frilly ones are already making our bed more summery.
So that's where I've been this week. Sorry for getting a bit behind with replies and catching up with everyone but as soon as my head stops spinning I'll be back up to speed. Blimey, I need a sit down!
