Yesterday did briefly get better when I discovered an email asking for THIRTEEN tea towels and 2 samplers, so I did enjoy a brief feeling of jubilation, but the rest of the day was quite, quite dreary. Today has not been much better, mostly because of a replay of yesterday’s bus woes.
This morning I forewent make up and even doing my hair to it’s normal poker straightness and got to the bus stop for 7.50am. I was still there at 8.30am waiting for the bus. I was wet, cold and miserable, so I took it out on the bus driver who told me to call the depot. I fired off an email to them instead, I could not face speaking to the moronic people at First Bus.
Today I have been shuffling emails round and trying to look busy. But perhaps I should stop trying to look busy. Maybe I should just get my sewing out and be done with it? I was going to sew at lunchtime but had to post parcels instead. How is one supposed to go through life sitting at a desk with their brain rotting away? It does sound great having nothing to do at work all day and being paid for it, but the novelty soon wears off, I assure you!
This seems to be a bad time of year to be looking for jobs as there is just nothing coming up. The most frustrating thing about the total inactivity during the day is that I have SO MUCH I could be doing if I could not be here! I’ve so many things to make, for the stall/shop and for Christmas, plus the bathroom could REALLY do with a clean!
This evening, Jo and I are going to Ikea for frames for the billion samplers we have done/to do and then I have to sew up a sock monkey – whoop!
