It's been a while..

I know, it's been some time since I blogged, not quite sure how it happened. Just lost the need for a while I guess.
Holidays are over and just in the nick of time too as the kids were a little fed up of each other. All back at school now, eldest to 6th form, no.2 to High School and year 9 (we have a 3 tier school system here) no.3 in year 7 and youngest in year 4, top of the school. They all seem older and bigger, funny how a new uniform can make them grow a few inches.
I too started my new job on Tuesday. Everything is up in the air, I don't know exactly when I'm working or what I'm going to be doing, it's all " let's see how it goes". I've already put in more hours than I'm contracted for, but that's because I love it. I just love being with the kids and listening to them, and getting to know them. The little boy I work with is delightful and I'm sure we are going to make big progress in the coming months.
Of course new job means less time for crafting. This week I've been in bed asleep by 9pm, so I haven't even picked up a needle. Hopefully that will change as things settle down.
I did however manage to finish the cowboy last week. So now Archie is no longer alone as he has Beau to keep him company. And what a handsome cowboy he is too!
