A shock to the system

As some of you know, I have been made redundant from my job and today is the first time in my life as an un-employed woman!! The uncertainty of 'whats around the corner' is a little scary..... but I am up for it!!
I do however, have afew things in the 'pipeline' - so watch this space!! This is my new Ideas Journal I made for all my little notes:



So now, I should (notice I say should) have more time to actually comment on the MANY blogs I visit instead of being so time poor that I just lurk.......... And, I should (another should) be able to answer my emails a little quicker too lol!! I suppose one upside of being a 'Lady of Leisure' is that I also should be able to get heaps of sewing done!! hehehehehe.......

I have not been working since November, it is hard but so much more time to finish the UFO's. You never know what is around the corner.

Oh dear! This financial crisis is so dumb huh? Stupid government. I knew Kevin Rudd was a no good idiot! Anyway, hopefully you'll be able to make time for more crafting, and meybe even make some money from it! Perhaps start an etsy shop or something! Seen any thylacines yet? If you found one, you could probably seel your story to the media for a few cool million!! lol

Oh no Sarah...so sorry to hear that.
I am glad you are looking on the positive side, keep yourself busy, sew, sew, sew.
Is your hubby still employed?
Mine has been out of work for 18 months now and I was very down at one point but we have survived this long so keep a positive mind and check out the patchwork shops as they may need a casual for weekends...it worked for me and even though you are on your feet all day you don't notice as you are surrounded by all this lovely fabric and your mind is racing with all of these ideas.
Whoops, I'm rambling
take care
