Just as I'd decided this job thing wasn't going to be happening - eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek the phone rang!!!
I've been offered and have accepted the job and should be starting on or around 21st April. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!!
Things may change slightly round here.
Not the blogging or the crafting if I can help it.
Moogsdad will once more have to do his share of the household chores ;-)
Judging by the huge grin on his face when I told him the news there is some hope!!
To clear up any questions about Moogsdad that arose from yesterday's post, he's not an inventor - yet! He is a research scientist - so innovation and problem solving are his bag, baby.
However, he dreams of one day having a big mad inventor's shed in which he can innovate to his hearts content - preferably whilst being paid innordinately vast sums of money for doing so.
What can I say - the man's a Virgo and he loves to dream :)
Sooooo - you want to know what all that mess I made yesterday was about then?
I've been shelf filling in my little shop :)
I went to the Scrapstore today and joined up as planned. They didn't have a great deal of fabric today but I got a few nice bits.
I also noticed these:
I asked how much.
Go on guess!!
They are for me :)
Stop laughing - I can roller skate....ish....or at least I could when I was twelve.....
On top of all that fabulousness I am also the proud and very delighted recipient of a brace of awards from the delectable Miss Kitty.
A very apt award from the Kitty - a Cool Cat Award. Moog's not so sure about this one as she has a lifelong aversion to all things feline. I, however, am delighted - thank you Kitty!
This one I would like to pass on to everyone who comments on my ramblings and indeed to those of you who read but find yourselves at a loss for words!! Go on help yourself!!
The second award is this lovely The One In A Million Friend Award:
It originated with Ann at A Nice Place in the Sun, and is a recognition of the fact that our blogging friends have a huge impact on our lives. This is certainly true for me.
Blogging has done so much for me since losing my job and my Mum last year. I have never felt lonely at home and a big part of that is knowing that there are lovely people out there, near and far, who get what I'm about, who encourage, inspire and support me and make me laugh every single day.
This list is by no means complete as I do like a good lurk and neither is it in any particular order!! I raise a glass to all of you (no surprises there then!!), my lovely real imaginary friends :)
