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

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
