well two weeks to go. I have had one day's work in all that time. Further enquiries reveal that all the supply work has been taken over by cover supervisors. I am not going into detail here but it means that there are a whole load of unemployed teachers out there that used to reply on casual work. On Monday I had the dubious pleasure of going to the job centre to sign on.
Next week we will have lived here for 15 years. We came with high hopes and newly attained degrees I can honestly say all that hard work and the teacher training a few years later has brought us nothing, except debt and disappointment.
yes I have been feeling sorry for myself and then I felt guilty. There are so many people with bigger problems than me. Some of the blogs I follow show me just how much I have and so much that others have lost and that money is not the most important thing although it is useful for paying bills and keeping body and soul together. Tomorrow is World Food day
a billion people in the world don't have enough to eat
So enough! I didn't mean to depress you all.
I have finished a piece for an exchange
and my autumn wall hanging is coming along. I am making it up as I go along really!
I am going to do some x stitching for myself and have pulled out Joy to the World to finish for Christmas. And then get back to The Chocolate shoppe. I can't remember the last time I worked on that.
The Wise Men ( Joyce you guessed correctly) are coming along nicely. I have machined all around then and now have to attach them to the backing fabric and finish of the embellishments.
I must have too much time on my hands. I put all my blog RSS feeds in alphabetical order in my favourites the other day. But at least I know where everyone is now.
The sun has shined the washing has dried and I have hoovered.
Nearly forgot to say thank you to everyone who leaves a comment. They are appreciated.
