How can it be Thursday already? Where have I been? What have I been doing?
I don't have the answers to those and so many other questions, but I can assure you I have been doing things. Boring things like homework granted, but I have squeezed in a little deserved op shopping and vintage collecting with a few new lovelies finding their way home with me. I will introduce you all to some of my new treasures as there are a couple of real gems that I can't wait to show off .
I also squeezed in a delightful Mothers Day which began with not the traditional breakfast in bed, but the less relaxing waking at the crack of freezing dawn for the little fella's football game.
The little Miss and I usually explore and go on muddy adventures in between watching proudly as the boy marks, runs and kicks with all of his might. (And gets good and dirty in the process!)
I was spoilt with a rose, a divine lunch out with my Mum and family,
a beautiful silver bracelet that I can't wait to collect charms for,
and some very sparkly earrings. Bling is always the perfect Mothers Day gift!
Anything else going on? Hmmm, let me think.
Oh, there is the small matter of.........
BEING OFFERED AND ACCEPTING AN AWESOME AND FABULOUS NEW JOB!!!!
I was lucky enough to be offered a position in an amazing organisation that cares for disadvantaged elderly people, many of whom have lived hard lives on the streets and battle with mental illnesses.
I am still so sad to bid farewell to my beautiful friends at my current job, but will treasure them forever in my heart and will always have some beautiful (and sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, and sometimes just totally bonkers!) memories.
But I am really, really excited about this new position and all the great challenges the future holds.
I wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your incredibly supportive and caring comments on my last post. During a very bleak and dark period you guys provided me with the uplifting rays of light that were your insights and comments and helped me find my way out of that black tunnel of gloom. You all rock! Big time!
