Back Again

Well, it didn't take me long to get back into slovenly blog posting again now did it?

My excuse is that I started a new job on 6 December and its taking some getting used to.   Each day I've worked I've come back with my head so full of it that I haven't been able to find the head space to write.  

I've never worked in the voluntary sector before and its quite a different challenge, especially as the organisation I'm working for doesnt seem to be, well very organised.  I'm thinking that's why they've employed me.   They've already upped my hours from 10 to 15 a week, and working between school hours that will effectively be 3 days a week from January.  The lady I'm working with is also new though.  She's lovely and it will be great to be working together to, hopefully, make some big improvements.

I'm still doing my freelance work and working for my husband, so it hasn't left me much time to write, especially with the mad dash towards getting ready for Christmas.  It doesn't matter how organised I try to be, the week before Christmas always comes at me in a rush.   I think I'm nearly there though, apart from two cakes to ice and decorate, the food shop (although I do have the turkey), and some food prep.  Then I will be able to relax and enjoy Christmas and you never know, I might even find some time to write!

Hope you all are now nearly organised and not stressing in a last minute frenzy.

Take care


  1. I am the opposite of you - I have the food but not the turkey! Having a nice person to work with makes all the difference in a job so I hope it all goes well, Linda.

  2. I agree with Wendy, the people you work with make all the difference :-) Good luck with it - and Happy Christmas :-) x

  3. Hi both

    I know what you mean, the best bit is that she doesn't mind if I'm flexible in when I work the hours, which is essential when you have school children!
