Long time no blog

urgh, well what a month.

first a new National Pay framework and regs at work.. not fun.. i've been downgraded and there's nothing i can do about it.. that's caused a lot of stress and tension between everyone. Hurrah!
Equal pay for equal work i don think...More like " all animals are equal, just some are more equal than others"

but on the good side work for the researcher post has been finalised.. (although payment hasn't) so i'm getting going with that. feels good.

I've started an evening class - beginners patchwork and quilting.. and managed to find a sewing machine from freecycle.. it works fine and i'm kinda enjoying it all.. though i'm not very accurate!
who knows i might get a quilt out of it!

as of today i've lost 7lbs.. hurrah! but i have got some flu type bug so that's a bit pants.. the whole weekend etc has been wasted..

i haven't done any scrapping for ages. but i might get to a crop this weekend, and then Away with the Fairies retreat is the week after that.
Really looking forward to a weekend of scrapping and shopping and meeting up with people.. not to mention the fabby classes!

finally have found somewhere new for the crop i organise. I got so fed up with hiring a room where i work. They were next to useless at communicating and made it all out to be me being picky!
so, here's to the new scout hall, and fingers crossed we can all make it and perhaps even recruit a few more members.

what else? ah yes an old friend got back in touch, which was a shock, but really pleased to hear he's finally happy, and married.

phew, ok, i've got a temperature again, so gonna go find somewhere to cool down.. i hate being ill!!
