There are certain times when you think that the day you've been waiting for will never come.
When I went back to work in August, I knew I would not be returning for another school year.
Sunday was emotionally draining as there were video presentations for leaving staff. So many moving on; my boss retiring after 12 years here. Saying all those goodbyes certainly took its toll. But yesterday, all was calm, and I was finally able to get my work done.
I was finally able to call it quits.
Today was my first day of freedom. Believe me, after all the workplace chaos and turmoil of the past year, this feels like a new lease on life.
I'm open to all the new possibilities that are awaiting me.
This past Saturday, I met with some of the yarnbombing group again to crochet and make plans.
After my last blog post, I was contacted by a local lady who found me through a blog friend in India. Now how's that for networking? She has been looking for other crafters in the country to meet up with. Turns out she only cross-stitches (something I used to do a lot of and would like to pick back up again), but had found a small group of knitters on Ravelry called Kuwait Crafters who she has been able to connect with.
In order to try and meet more people, she is hosting a World Wide Knit in Public event this coming Saturday at one of the Costa Coffee locations on the seaside. I agreed to help the cause by posting to my yarnbombing chat group and to Instagram and having others do the same.
The way things are already playing out, I have a feeling I'm going to be a very busy crafter in the months to come.
The constant creative mess doesn't seem to bother Jingles in the least.
