Today...

...was a very good day... I had a 'bits to do' kinda day. I made up my mind that I would do all those little bits and pieces which had been hanging around for ages. I walked into BH for the first time in an age and felt so much better for it. I popped into the shop where I start my new position on Tuesday to say hi. I was so warmly welcomed that it straight away made me feel a little less nervous. I met one of the other staff so that also 'broke the ice' so to speak. I find it weird I suppose, that not so long ago, I bought all my books from this store and now I shall be 'that side of the counter'. Looking forward to this 'new doorway' in my life. It is amazing in such a short time life has 'turned around'. I am prepared to embrace this new aspect of life with gusto and do whatever it takes to make it be truely successful...

My stitching still has gone by the way side... I had all good intentions last night but as soon as I sat down I was asleep...

G from Patra's Place came visiting yesterday. She, of course, had some wonderful 'show and tells'... I seriously think she should hold a nominal entrance fee exhibition. I am sure with some co-operation from some of her stitching friends she could have an interactive display of both her linen and people stitching, tatting, or whatever... I think given the right advertising, some thought and planning it could be succesful. There is a little gallery in BH - used to be an church- that might just be the go for something like that.

Well, again that is all I have... LOL I am rapidly turning into boring but I have a feeling come Tuesday - boring will look good...

Great idea, re Gina. If she needs a hand with the marketing i.e. brochures, data base, mail outs just let me know. Perhaps a charge could be made with proceeds to one of Gina's favourite charities. It would be a great meeting place for bloggers and stitchers.

OH! How nice of you two to start organising this for me - lol!!! Sharon, I enjoyed myself at your home as always; it was great to see you looking and sounding so well. Miss Eagle, I have emailed you about getting together - now we have something else to discuss other than opshops ;-)

B*gger ... I've only just realised I haven't commented in ages! I've been meaning to come round and visit you after your op to say "hi", and then got sick the week after, and now it's another week gone again - I don't know where the darned time goes! Just wanted to say I'm so glad the op went well, and you're getting back to feeling like 'you' again - I've just been typing up my roster for the next four months (LOL) since I now have a permanent roster, so we can organise a catch up and stitching session some time. I think you mentioned Saturdays are the best for you now, so if you like I'll email you a list of Saturdays when I'm free, and we can take it from there :) Actually, I might just do it now as your email sometimes plays up ... so, here goes: (April is pretty much written off with more visitors arriving again soon) Sat 6 May; 10 and 17 Jun; 22 and 29 Jul; 19 and 26 Aug; 30 Sep; 7 Oct - blimey, they're the only Saturdays I have off work for all those months, crikey! If none of those work, Sundays might be OK too? Look after yourself {hugs}
