on a journey

I feel like I'm on a bit of a journey at the moment.  Just as I get to my destination something changes and I'm off again in a different direction. The exam invigilating is over for now, the snow of last week caused havoc, so it got increasingly stressful.  Time for a bit more sewing I thought, maybe get focused on some new things and manage a few more rows of the sock yarn shawl.


Instead out of the blue, a job opportunity too good to turn down, two days a week, working from home, computer based admin. So this week my head is exploding from training, training, training, and also from the "fun" of uploading a more recent copy of some software onto my laptop.
note to self. do not start to install huge software programs at 8.30pm. or you will end up watching two entire films and going to bed at 2am when it is finally finished and working properly.


oh and do you remember I said I'd entered a ballot for a half marathon? Well I got a place. And I panicked for a few days and then I might just have entered another power walking challenge.  more about that another day. I think I need an early night tonight...........

  1. Oh, my goodness. What challenges, but good for you!
    I think an early to bed night is a good idea. I'd be walking into the walls after a night like that.
    Congratulations ten times over.

  8. Great to be able to work from home, well done. I know what you mean about bed at 2.am. Sometimes I get carried away reading everyones blogs . Then I feel like hell the next day and have to do the school run.
