Still waiting...

No news yet about the job, and its doing my head in slightly. I'm finding it very hard to focus on other things and am trying not to plan too much in case I get called in for the induction days.

So, what have I managed to get done?

The dreaded tax return

Harvesting of blackcurrants

(they are now waiting in the freezer to be transformed into blackcurrant vodka!)

Creation of 'chubby bunny'

(a present for a nearly due baby)

I also managed an outing to the pub (hooray!) while A was on a sleepover on Friday night.

Other than that we seem to have been meandering along doing very little, a bit of maths to keep on top of things for A, but lots of late nights and late mornings. A is loving it and keeps reminding me that this is her summer holiday because she is now a 'school kid'. I'm feeling a bit weird about it. I don't like the feeling of not achieving anything, that constant feeling of 'I should be doing something...' I don't seem able to move ahead until I know about the job.

At the end of this week we have a visitor arriving - A's friend from Glespin is coming to stay for a week - unbelievable excitedness from both girls :-) I think they have been planning and scheming on facebook - I wonder what I'm in for!!

Hi K! I hate those times when I feel like I should be doing something and it just nags me.

Your bunny is adorable!

It sounds like A is happy, so that is a good indicator that things are going better than it feels like.

Hang in there!

Hi Marion :-)

I should really try to enjoy this quiet period because its all going to get very hectic soon!

I'm off to see the sports physio later to try and get something sorted about my shins, so hopefully I'll be able to get back to running sometime soon as I'm really missing it.

Hi K, LOVE your bunny! And blackcurrent Vodka sounds heavenly! So glad A is so excited about school - I can understand your feeling of "I should be doing something" as I am like that a lot - especially before a big change in circumstances.

Hope you hear about the job soon! x x

Hi :-)
I'm looking forward to the blackcurrant vodka - not sure how I'm going to manage to wait 3 months for it to be ready!! More patience needed!


Skye-Blu said...

Oohh 3 months!! Tomorrow I'm going to be making some limoncello (lemon vodka) which only takes 2 weeks! I'll send you the recipe! x

K said...

Please do!!!! 2 weeks sounds much more sensible ;-)
