LIP: Life In Progress

This little blog is going to be pootling along in a low gear for a bit, because offline my life is taking some twists and turns that are both exciting and alarming at the same time.

Basically, I’ve been offered a new job, one which I start in eight days time! I’m going to be moving back to full-time – although when I say ‘moving back’, I only ever worked full-time for five months at the start of my very first job back in 2011 before my health and circumstances kicked in*. I’ll be moving up a band too, still within the University where I currently work, but most importantly I will be moving into the Finance division.

And hence starts my life as a woman with a career rather than a job.

This does mean, of course, that the accountancy study has to start again in earnest. I am hopeful that the new circumstances will make it easier than it has been over the past year, although it will still be hard, I am under no illusion about that. This will probably also mean that the time which I feel I can allocate to crafting (and blogging about crafting) goes down.

But that’s OK. This too will pass. I don’t know where it will take me, but right at the minute it feels really positive and really hopeful and that’s a really good place to be in.

And for a quick knitted WIP photo, I’ve finished the first repeat of Chart 3 on my Orchid Thief shawlette as part of the STCLKAL:

*which are best not extrapolated upon right here. All I can comment upon that front is that what goes around comes around.
