Just popping in...

...to say hello!

Much has been going on in my life of late.

First up, I quit my job! Yippee! I have been very unhappy there for a while, and by a while I mean...months...years...who knows, but safe to say it was definitely time to go.

Last Friday was my last day, and as days at work go it was a pretty pleasant one. Seventeen of us went out for a farewell lunch and I was showered with gifts, cards and well wishes.



As nice as that day was I know in my heart I have made the right choice.

So, once it was decided between myself and my fiancé we decided maybe now would be the time to make the move to Scotland like we always planned to do eventually. Now seems a good a time as any!

In two weeks David finishes work, and hopefully the week after we will load all our belongings in to a van and head up the M6 to Scotland! I am very excited :)

So my next two weeks will be spent packing and job hunting. 2014 has turned in to a really big year for us and I just hope it continues on this positive path.

My operation didn't happen thanks to a high blood pressure reading at my pre op assessment, but thankfully I have had no pain since July. So I am keeping my fingers crossed for now. Should it flare up again I will sort it once we are in Scotland and settled.

With all this going on I have yet still to do a single stitch. I am missing it but I just look at my stash and I don't know where to begin. Perhaps a kit which came with a magazine might be the way to go to get my stitching juices flowing again.

I'll keep you posted.
