Thank you for all your good luck wishes it helped enormously and I have settled in really well at my new place of work ..... I know loads of you do work but I haven't for the last three years and not done full time either .... so its a bit of a learning curve trying to get things organised and sorted and making sure I can fit some stitching in as well ..lol
I am doing admin for two branches of the same company ... luckily there are in the same office ..... I have a HUGE area to work in and the kitchen is only ten foot away .....I am in charge of the cuppas ;0
sooo I had better make some for you now too ...lol
the team I work for are really nice and the office is quite busy I have been thrown in the deep end but am swimming along quite nicely and giving suggestions on how to improve certain procedures .... I have learnt how to do the wages ... my boss sat down and did them while I wrote notes and this week he is going to read my notes while I do them .... wish me luck ..lol .....
He laughed when I took a photo of the office to show it off to you and the view from our windows too ... the photo of the view isn't the best as it has been rather wet around these parts these last few weeks ... and doesn't look likely to improve either ho hum .....
I have managed to get some stitching in as I have been working on the Travelling Pattern from Lynda and have finished one and want to get another one stitched before I send it on its way ... she has a list of all who wanted to stitch it, so this one isn't open to who wants it next I am afraid ....
My little present for June arrived safely and so I can show you that too :) she loved it as well PHEW ..lol
I am still waiting to see if DJ has got the light house picture I did for her .... I hope it hasn't got lost in the postal system .....
Michelle sent me a lovely wee gift of a tape measure twill ribbon from France when she was there last weekend .. I am hoping I can go next year now I am earning some pennies :) I have also took a photo of my treadle machine for her to nosy at ....
I also received a lovely biscornu from Chris G as a Rak as I had sent her ages and ages ago some scented threads and she used the rose one on it and it smells really nice too :)
Yesterday DH and Master Bentley and I went to Elvington Air Museum as DH was doing the Fire cover there for the DeHavland Devon aircraft sooo we went along for the ride and I took a great shot of them with the Mosquito plane as well .... Bentley and I had a wander round while he was busy as we were waiting to see if the Spitfire would also fly over ..... unfortunately there was a humongous thunder and lighting storm so it didn't come over :(
Over on Friendly Stitchers we are doing the Christmas/winter Challenge in July where we try and stitch up to three ornaments in this month and do one for an exchange too *(this can be part of your chosen amount ..lol) and I signed up before I got the job for three eeeekkkk ... well today I sat down and started the one for my partner and am almost halfway there PHEW >>>LOL at least her's will be done .....
well I had better pop the photos one while I get the second round of brews ready ... chocolate swiss roll any one ????
