It's Finished And A Rant.

As I mentioned in my last post I've been working on a Springtime swap and I'm glad to report it's finished.I've really enjoyed doing it as it has tested my skills and taken me down avenues I've never been before to make stuff that if it was a project for me I would probably have bought but as it is for a swap as much as possible has been "home-made". Of course then the self doubt kicks in as to whether it is good enough but I am not going to heart search over it and will leave it as it is, I will show piccies at the beginning of April because it's only fair to show them after they have been shown on the swap site. For one I don't have the time to start again and two I needed to finish it last week as I was aware "bad stuff" was happening at work and I knew I would lose my enthusiasm, the bad news was delivered yesterday and as predicted I have lost my mojo :-(((   To cut a long story short the pay rise we received last year has been wiped out as they have cut our hours!! Why they couldn't give us a bit more work to do within our contracted time and reduce the bill on the casual workers I'll never know. OK so I'm losing 2 hours a week, no big deal but when I only work 15 hours a week it is a big deal The only way I can deal with it is to think, yes I've lost 2 hours but I've still got a job but I think that's how the powers that be hope you will take it and therefore presenting you with a fete a complis. S**T happens! C'est la vie.Deal with it!!
See you later....

It's Quiet.

Some parts of Blogland have gone rather quiet of late, which is a shame :-(   I've been quiet but only because I'm busy, 
1: The pup, who is a bundle of fun and
2: I am working on a swap, Theme Springtime/Easter
I've got all my ideas down on paper and started with the prep yesterday, fully intending to start putting stuff together last night but, as is often the case with me if I make plans, it didn't work out that way and I got only a tiny bit done. Never mind onwards and upwards! For obvious reasons I can't divulge what I am making or show piccies but all will be revealed in time, watch this space!!
See you later....

Spring's On Its Way, Honest It Really Is!!

How do I know? No I haven't got a crystal ball, apart from a miniature one which is a bit cloudy and even if it wasn't, with my eyesight I wouldn't be able to read it anyway. I take my lead from Mother Nature, today has dawned bright and with a beautiful blue sky, a little chilly but hey it is only March but look what I found...

Can you see Mr Frog sat amongst the frog spawn in my pond? Mother Nature at her best.
See you later....
