New toy

Hi from Pickle Land

Just a quick up date.

I am currently suffering from labrythitis (Vertigo) and am off work.  A little blessing as I am really starting to passionaltely detest my job but it is very debilitating being dizzy and feeling sick all the time and I am not up to much.  Even being on the computer can send me dizzy, so hence this is a small update.

AJ and I had a lovely break away to the apartment in Spain.  It was so nice to be together away from the stresses of work and away from the house.  We were able to really talk and think about how we want our lives to be and how we are not enjoying ourselves at the moment. We have made some decisions about key points in our lives and have a sort of plan on how we want things to change over the next few months and years to come.

One of the key decisions we made was that we are both really unhappy in our jobs and instead of just moaning about it, we really need to step up the job searches.  Something may be on the horizon for AJ which we are hoping to come to fruition soon and once I am feeling better I am going to really step up the job search. I have decided that I need a job that allows me more time to do the things I really enjoying in life.  This job at the moment just does not allow that life balance that I hoped it would when I took the job.  Being able to spend time with AJ and family and friends and being able to do craft and arts is more important to me than money and material things. Though obviously I need a wage to help pay bills etc, being in that job is just bad for my health - hence I think the vertigo is a sign that I need to do this SOON.

AJ and I have a new toy.  We have saved up for months and have now an IPAD.  Not the latest version - too expensive, but we are so pleased with it.  We very quickly discovered photo booth and hence a self portrait - Thermal Image.  What great fun Photo Booth will be for me.

Anyway, hopefully I will feel much better soon and that I will be able to start crafting again and updating this blog much more sooner.  I do miss blogging and I have so much inpiration but nothing down on paper so the speak. 

Good evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you very soon

Love Lesley xx

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.
