Weekend Talk

I felt a great feeling of relief this Friday. At last I told work that I would definitely be leaving, if not in December, then sooner if my pension will allow. Now I'm of the opinion that I cannot wait until December. There is so much that I could be doing and I resent time spent working where appreciation is never shown. Lip service is easy and doesn't cost anything but rewarding senior staff could be a saving grace. They havn't learnt this lesson in the 11 years that I have been working for them and for that reason discontent is rife. I made a decision in the last week spent at home that I really didn't want to carry on working in an atmosphere that has changed from enjoyment in hard work to malcontent at little recompense. Immediately the words wereout of my mouth so I felt that a great weight had been lifted. I'm now in charge of my own life.

Jim goes into hospital tomorrow to have a shoulder arthroscopy and depbridement. He will be in overnight provoding they find nothing else wrong. Then he will be forced to take 2 weeks off and rest the right shoulder/arm. Many years ago I worked at this particular private hospital and I know he will be well looked after in almost (for a hospital) luxurious surroundings.

This weekend's finish is shown below. This is another chart by the French designer Atalie entitled Avril 2007. Perhaps now my biscornu phase in completed. I had fun stitching this one but enough is enough and I shall cast on this evening for another Victorian Shoulderette. I plan on beading the lace edging on this one.

That biscournu is just do die for! And what's more I'm going to add your blog to mine so more people can discover your wonderful stitching.

I'm also really pleased, for you, that you have decided to leave work which you certainly haven't been enjoying for quite a while.

Lots of Love Patti xxx
