January Update

Just a quick update

I started my new job on Monday 23rd . Yippee!!!!

There is a lot to learn and take in but so far enjoying it. Feels slightly strange going to work somewhere different as I spent the last 13 years going to one part of the town and now I am in another. Also really strange not sitting behind a desk in an office. (For the purposes of this blog I would rather not say where I work and what I do but it is something totally different to what I did before). But good all the same.

On the creating/craft front I haven't done anything for a while. I think once I get my self into the new working routine again my creating juices will return. But until then, I'm OK with that. I'm still looking in blog land and getting inspiration from so many talented people and I am constantly checking out My Craft Channel and 2 Peas which have some fantastic videos at the moment. Also my latest monthly kit from Sarah's Cards is calling me - "" Lesley - scrapbook me, scrapbb…

New Beginnings

Today I had an interview for a new job. A job that will be a total change of career path for me. And guess what? I got the job. I am so pleased after being made redundant. It has only been two months out of work and to be honest this was the only job I have applied for in that time. But I feel myself very fortunate that I have got the job especially in these worrying times. I am so looking forward to starting my new career. I know it will be challenging and I am being totally re-trained along side a training plan. However, I am so excited about this change of direction for me. It has been something I have needed to do for a long time. It ties in with me finding myself again and becoming more of the woman I want to be.

Good times ahead

10 on the 10th - January 2012

Though in my part of the UK, it has been really mild for the time of the year, I am so craving the summer with long light nights and lots of colour all around. For this months 10 on the 10th I thought I would share 10 pictures (out of probably 130) that I took at Kew Gardens last August. I loved Kew and hope to visit again in the near future










































Good day from Pickle Land



Hope to speak to you very soon

Here's to a good year in 2012 and More

Firstly a Happy New Year and hoping that 2012 is a good year.

I am personally hoping that 2012 will be a good year for me on all types of levels.
I am hoping it is a year of More - my word for the year.

1) More time with family and friends
AJ and I have been a little bit insular of late. We haven't made much effort in keeping contact with our friends and family as much as we would have liked. This year my aspiration is to spend more time with my friends and family. I'm not going to wait for us to be invited any where. I'm going to be the one who makes the invites. My goal is to open my house up abit more and have people around more.

2) More quality time with AJ
For the past four years AJ and I have lived together, gone to work together, met for lunch and gone home together. Since being made redundant that has stopped and I truly miss that. It was time where we talked and made plans. We also haven't had that much time together for the last few months (for reasons I can't …
