I’ve been absent lately, but I’ve been going through some changes. Some people see change as both good and bad – but we need to see how it pans out before we decide which. I was made redundant just before Christmas 2013. Redundant, it’s a pretty hideous word. It makes one feel unwanted, unloved, that everything you worked for has been for nothing and you’re tossed aside like a wet rag. There are some big changes happening, lots of cuts across the board – so I’m not the only one who is going through change, but that didn’t make it any less hurtful; or lessen the stress from the two-year lengthy consultation period of uncertainty followed by the inevitable. I wasn’t in a good place. My home life was bleeding and my craft was suffering. Then there was the reprieve; an opportunity for change. I’m fortunate to have landed another job through redeployment – but its something completely different. I’d been doing the same job for over sixteen years and now I’m going to be doing something else. In truth, I was a little worried about how I would adapt, but we’re built to adapt. Change is good; it opens your eyes to something you didn’t think you’d particularly engage. So when faced with change, grab the opportunity to change, Carpe Diem!
- Some mornings you’ve just got to pour yourself a strong coffee and light a vanilla & patchouli candle @hops_wickscandles #morningritual #strongcoffeeEnjoyed a wonderful long weekend in Suffolk. Very pretty landscape albeit exceptionally flat. My very first Fish & Chips on a beach, private tour around Adnams brewery and lovely walks in the woods. Many things prefix with the word Suffolk (so you know where you are), interestingly... houses painted with Suffolk Pink are made from white wash & blood - cool factoid.Nothing quite like a Full moon on the #moors #fullmoonHAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful boys Gabriel and Sebastian. 9 today #catbirthday #catstagram
