Fuld tid. April 20, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — craftymim @ 8:11 pm

Jeg arbejder fuld tid. For første gang nogen sinde. Som 38 årig.

Jeg syntes jeg har været priviligeret at jeg ikke har skullet være på fuld tid før nu. Jeg har været deltids og har haft tid til at tage mig af meget af det herhjemme.

Som sygeplejerske er det nemt at være deltids. Men i min nuværende job, som klinisk vejleder, er man her i landet, kun ansat på fuldtid.

Jeg elsker at være vejleder, men jeg elsker ikke fuldtids arbejde.

Jeg savner at have fri midt på ugen hvor ‘alle de andre’ er på arbejde eller i skole, og jeg kan have tid bare til at gøre hvad jeg har lyst til.

Jeg savner at have tid til at gå på posthuset – det lokale er ikke åbent i weekenden.

Jeg savner at tage på biblioteket. Der er kun aften åbent een dag om ugen.

Det er besværligt at skulle handle samtidig med alle de andre der handler uden for normal arbejds tid.

Men, samtidig elsker jeg at en hverdag er en hverdag, og en weekend er en weekend og at det kan mærkes!

God weekend.

I have cut all my pieces for my scrap-buster values quilt. Most of the pieces have been stitched, and the squares cut in half – tonight I lined up all the squares to see how it will come together. Its very rainbow!!

I’m not really sure what to think… It might be a good one for a picnic, where a few grass stains wont spoil the look.

Inspired by this, I made this:

I am not entirely happy with it, next time I’d spend more time playing with the ‘font’, and I have some long red stitches running behind the lettering that I hope wont be visible when I frame it.

11 weeks till christmas – I’m just saying…

 

Oh bugger

Isn’t it amazing how this www has brought the world to your fingertips?

I nearly checked my calender to see if the dates for the A line skirt classes fitted, before realising I might not make it to Philadelphia and back in time ;-))

Yes I am blonde.

Our Poppy aka Matilda

Girls and I are enjoying the slower pace that is the school holidays.

Maddy and I share a love of anything craft related, and managed to complete Matilda in just a day. Her body is made of an old fleecy blanket that was used as a nursing blanket when both girls were newborns. It has a lovely softness to it, reminding me of the hours of cuddling, sleeping and nursing those 9-10 years ago.

We added longer hair just like cupcakes for clara.

Pattern from hop skip jump.
