Down in the Dumps

Yep. I’m down. If you don’t feel like reading this one I don’t blame you. Skim past, leave me a smile in comments and I will come back in a few days and be happy again. For now, I am in such a funk! And I just don’t know what to do with myself!

I internalise a lot of my environment. And I am desperately unhappy at my ‘real’ job right now. It’s spilling into my personal life and I dont know where to go from here. I would give almost anything to not have to go to work on Saturday 😦 I have, this week moved to my 3rd store {in the same chain} in the last 5mths and I feel so disjointed it’s not even close to amusing. I am considering begging my original boss for my original job back. Just until I decide what I want to be when I grow the hell up. I’m sick of treading water in a dead end job. Dead end for me anyway. Others seem able to make a career of the place. I can see why. It is quite stable and not always a bad place to be. I just guess I’ve never seen it as a long term place … Tho I have been in the company for 3.5 years now. So it’s not like I move from job to job.

Ugh! Whinge over. If you got this far you must be my sister {haha Hi Boo, love you long time! xoxox}

I feel like kicking my own ass! I am struggling to find motivation to do anything! I have been participating in the most lovely Quilting Bee I could have ever imagined for myself. My block was November and I had just found the mojo to get cracking on the 8 extra blocks I need to turn it into a quilt when I lost steam again.

Kate's Bee Block!

Remember this? Yes? It still looks exactly the same!!!! I have completed all the extra scrap strings and am half way thru putting the white strips round them. So not too far to go 🙂

I tried my very first paper pieced block – a star! – in the last couple of weeks and decided since it was scrap/white trim/black background too that I would use that on a plain black back for this quilt … so that is even half done! This is the Star block :

{Dont look too closely, it’s far from perfect. But I think for my first time it’d pretty cool!}

Anyhow … I am very much enjoying the sewing I manage to get done right now. I am being a good girl and have reined in my spending on fabric lol I am determined to put a dint in my stash in 2014. A friend wants me to go to Spotlight with her tomorrow.
I plan on coming out with only some plain white quilters cotton and a 1/2m I need to purchase for one of my swapping Bees. And!!! I have my birthday voucher from Spotty to spend so hopefully those won’t even cost me anything! 😀

How much fabric do you have in your stash?

My spectacular babies went off to school last week. My big boy is in grade 3 and my baby has just started Kindy. He goes 5 days a fortnight and I miss him dreadfully!!!! We both had tears {2 days of them!} But I managed to not let him see them and he really does seem to be enjoying himself! Which is a relief.

Here are my Two Little Rascals! How handsome they are!!!!!

It’s so scary sending your heart off every day. I feel empty and count down the hours til I get to collect them.
I know I am probably silly, but I really worry when they aren’t with me!! Do other Mums feel this way?? I’m sure I will grow out of it. And I am starting to enjoy being able to do something by myself for a couple of hours a week now tho 🙂

How are you guys doing? I’d love if you left me a comment and tell me what’s new in your world!

Catch ya next time! ❤
