A change isn't as good as a rest, but can be more interesting

Well, I haven't been here for so long, maybe no one drops by anymore...

Lots has changed in the last few months: I was made redundant for a start! I don't quite understand why the first job I've really felt was worthwhile should also be the one which has its funding stopped and from which I'm made redundant. That's life, eh? And, of course, as it had been relatively short-term employment, there was no redundancy payment and I don't get Jobseekers' Allowance. Hmmm, good job I'm not one to complain.

But, I have a new scheme. I'm opening a wool shop. Well, all being well, I am. I'm not counting any chickens because counted chickens are so inclined to bite you on the bum. But, that's my plan. I've been to my silver entrepreneurs workshops, I've registered as self-employed, I've contacted people about property to rent, I'm opening a business bank account and when the final pieces slot into place, I'm away.

How exciting is that? Well, it's fairly exciting for me. Actually, it's terrifying.

Whoops...almost forgot to mention: new blog coming soon, I hope, with lots of lovely close ups of lambs and rainbow-coloured hanks of gorgeous yarns and...well, I'll try to make it nice...

Phew, wish me luck!
