All Change

I cannot believe that it's been 7 months since I last posted, I've had such a busy time, yet nothing of note to say.

Retirement sounded good, all that free time to do what I wanted. But in reality it was too big a change. I'd worked full time, often with more than one extra job at a time, since I was 17. I had a break from paid work when my daughter was young, for 4 years. But now I got bored, so I've gone out and got a part-time job, I'm now in a new category - semi retired.

I'd also flirted with trying a craft business by opening a shop on Folksy, I closed that yesterday. I love making stuff, but running a business is not for me.

Now that a more regular routine has been implemented I'm wondering if I will have more to say and crafty makes to share.

Like, this week I attended a leather masterclass workshop and made this.


  1. Sorry to hear retirement didn't suit you, I was the opposite and do wonder how I ever had time to go to work. Love the butterfly, it looks amazing.

    1. Thank you. I was rather pleased with it myself.
      Retirement was going well at first with the exciting art project and the museum gig, But then winter came and i think I was missing company. So far working part time is giving me freedom, routine and a purpose; the extra money comes in handy too. Plus if the job gets in the way too much, I can just walk away, a marvellous feeling.


Thank you for visiting my blog.
