the thaw....

the snow has for the most part disappeared. It was here a good month - I miss driving to work in a winter wonderland. Although, I am blessed, my commute takes me through some lovely Scottish countryside and costal scenery. And I have discovered the joy of the spoken book to keep me company. Starting out with pride and prejudice, I realise that I still love hearing what happens next, and the journey flies by. Bonus, I have a whole bunch of books on CD to listen to, and now an itrip for my ipod. More will be downloaded.

Christmas has been and gone. The new year is almost here. My work continues to go well, but I'm beginning to face the challeneges that come with being a manager. I have to remind myself that I chose to do this, because I believe that I can, and that they hired me because they believed the same thing.

Currently the cat and the husband are asleep. They will be woken before the new year comes in. I will not celebrate alone.

let it snow let it snow let it snow...

Snow! The theme for the week - or the theme for the rest of winter! Car has been stuck since Monday. Now I need to dig it out tomorrow, and venture bravely out of my town. Wish me luck! Started my new job, unable to go into it this week. Arghhh! My head is a little all over the place, new job, graduation, choir concert, christmas, catteries, vet bills, christmas shopping, messy house...... the list is long, and I could probably make it a much longer one if I thought about it. These ones were just off the top of my head!

However, today was nice - choir rehearsal, coffee with a friend in a new, lovely coffee shop, and a spade picked up on the way home. Now I rest in my house, watching trashy tv, watching the cat sleep on the other sofa. He has a good life :) Wine in one hand, blanket in the other.

Hope the week continues on a positive note, I'm not so convinced that it will!
