Yikes! Has it been THAT long since I’ve blogged? Good grief, next thing I know it’ll be 2012.
The leaves are changing all over London and I really should get out more to lap up the colours enveloping the city. I went into central today to drop off CVs, looking for that dreaded second job, given that The Bridge will remain my first job, however flexible it may be. I haven’t had a ‘real’ job in so long I fear that I’ve lost my ability to work in a public setting, especially within retail- and I know the reason I left to begin with was because I couldn’t handle the people (little did I know at that point I’d end up in ministry, mind you). I figure I’ll take what I can get up til we go to California for Christmas-January and then pick up when we get back, hopefully with a ‘better’ job. I’m keeping my eyeball on the Global Oceans Legacy project starting up in London which has been recruiting a Project Director and currently an Outreach Manager- two roles that ten years ago I’d have snapped up in a millisecond but now am vastly underqualified for. I’m hoping that there will be a role opening up in the office that will require less.
I’m pretty vacant on the crafting front presently- still needing to put the finishing touches on my Social D apron (and actually put the thing to use)- but have been tossing around the idea of selling Christmas stockings again this year- that being determined by whether or not I land full-time work. I’ve got a skirt that needs expansion (size uber-tiny) so that’s on the to-do list.
I truly have nothing interesting nor inspiring to say on this post but just wanted blogger to know I still live.
Oh, two interesting things in the last two days. The first happened tonight when I dropped a pair of scizzors on my foot. Yeah. That hurt. The second, far more amusing incident was when Rob dunked his mobile phone into his cup of tea by accident last night. I coulda sworn he thought he was dunking a biscuit. Thankfully he’d already ordered a new phone which is due tomorrow. I haven’t laughed that hard in a while. Good stuff.
Peace out til inspiration hits!
