I have a new job. I start tomorrow. Well, it is a new job, but it’s kind of an old job too. I am returning to a Company I left more than five years ago, with a little more responsibility this time and perhaps a slightly different mindset. I am somewhat reassured I know what I’ve let myself in for, however I am also full of trepidation and cannot settle to anything today.
If a friend asked me whether they should return to a job they left I would probably say ‘don’t go back/move forwards’ for a whole host of reasons, especially if they left through choice, as I did. I have mulled over this very thing. Circumstances have changed slightly, location of job for one. The Company is moving forwards itself too. I am hoping there is a mixture of knowing what I am doing, plus a few new challenges and new faces.
I am so lucky to be given this opportunity. However, I had kind of gotten used to not working! I’ve been crafting more and loving it. The job is only part time so I shall still sew and I shall still knit, perhaps not quite as manically, but hopefully as productively. Today, however, it just isn’t happening – I have picked up my sewing and held it for ages without stitching a stitch. I have rummaged in the knitting bag next to my seat yet not been tempted to pick up sticks and actually knit. This feeling of being unsettled is just a temporary blip – I hope!
So, a few of pics of a recent trip to Devon, instead of the usual crafty updates in bulk! This part of the UK truly is a wonderful place. Unfortunately for us, the drive there took 8 hours rather than 5, less said about that traumatic part of the trip the better ! Goodbye for now, back another day!
