It is three months today that I left my job. Yesterday, someone asked me if I would ever go back to work and off the top of my head I said, “Maybe three days a week.”
Last night I had what I call work nightmares, anxiety dreams about being back at work. I know now that I will never go back to regular, permanent work. I have a few potential speaking jobs coming up and some contract work but I remain in a state of bliss about just being at home.
I love the time to cook, read, knit, do tiles and catch up with things. I have to admit I even like housework! I am disappointed that I haven’t lost weight but am working on it. I haven’t missed having a huge amount of disposable income and am happy to bypass the shops generally. I think I save about $100 on food per fortnight.
Last night’s dinner was from the WW Cookbook and was delicious. It looks a bit wrinkly now… but I had leftovers for lunch and it was still yummy and apparently freezes well. It used beef in the recipe but I just minced a coupe of chicken breasts.
Yesterday I went with my friend Deb to the wool shops to choose some wool for a snood for her. We had a great time messing about and looking at colours and styles.
Needless to say I couldn’t wait to get started.
I can really recommend both Crafty Nitwits and Wild and Woolly Yarns for their friendly service and expertise.
