deird1: Rapunzel, doing a jigsaw puzzle (Rapunzel jigsaw)
[personal profile] deird1
Been rather MIA lately. This is because I've been busy...

...watching Leverage seasons 3 and 4. Which means, for the first time in living memory, I'm up to date with American tv and can read websites without worrying about spoilers. For at least the next week or so.

...cuddling nephews. Gotta say, even though it was annoying having Nathan so upset that I had to sit there and cuddle him for two straight hours, it was also kinda lovely. I've had to deal with wailing, tears, and fretting from each of my nephews - and it's something I treasure even if it's a pain.

...trying to find a job. My current one is almost certainly going to disappear soon (widespread redundancies, and my role's expendable), and despite my limited experience I'm pretty good at this whole editing thing, so there's got to be someone out there who'll hire me. Right?

...making fun things from wool. Crochet is ADDICTIVE. I've finished my beginners book - and am now trying out some of the trickier patterns. (The easy tricky patterns, though. I'm not confident enough to try the truly diabolical ones.)

...missing the boyfriend, who is still in Europe. *pines*

...teaching Sunday School. With lots of seven year olds who can run riot quite effectively. This week, I have to tell the story of Ruth. Which will be difficult.

...reading books I've read before. Murder mysteries are my comfort food.

Like you, I reread old favorites as comfort. There's something soft and warm and cuddly about a favorite book.

Ouch, hope you find a shiny new job soon! Friend of mine has the same problem- all the jobs around her are disappearing left right and centre, and she's dreading being dragged back down to a menial position once everything collapses. :-(
Makes me kinda glad that my role as Domestic Technician is a permanent one with no danger of termination...

Do we get to see more pics of crocheted things soon? :-)

He's still away? Meanie. :-( When doth he return?
I shall visit soon, and we can watch Atlantis and eat chocolate and forget all about real life for a while! :-)

Yay mystery books- am still ploughing through my Agatha Christie collection, currently interrupted by Pride and Prejudice. :-)
