Update

Long time no seen - again...

Since end August everything changed in my life - at least it feels like. I started working again after being home with children the last 5 1/2 years AND I started university. Still a bit in chock! It's all very exciting, but OHOY what a lot to do.

I started work as an assistant to the Playgroup teacher at our Steiner School which is great. I thoroughly enjoy the work and it is very handy to drop off my boys in the kindergarten and then just get into the next room for playgroup.

The university studies are a bit more scary. Even though I'm only away 2 days a month, it is a lot of reading that has to be done - and at this very moment I have no idea how I'm coping. Anyway, it is as I said very exciting. I'm doing a two years foundation course in Waldorf Steiner Early Childhood Education.

So with all this happening, there is not that much time for craft...

My Vivian by Ysolda is on the way - slowly, slowly.

This is my latest love. A gnome from this book. There will be more of them I can tell.

And to finish off - this was the way I celebrated my birthday by myself last Monday - with Swedish Cider!!! Just had to buy it when I found it in our local supermarket.

PS. Visited the Knit and Stitch Show at Alexandra Palace in London today and was stopped at least 30 times by people admiring my red ponchonette by Anna. So well done Anna! You are admired.

Grattis i efterskott och tack för så positiva ord om min ponchonett! Inser att jag skall översätta den till engelska bums!

Vad härligt att höra från dig igen! Vad roligt att du börjat plugga och jobba men jag förstår att det inte blir så mycket tid till annat! Kram

Vad duktig du är, det ska nog gå bra ska du se. Själv är jag i slutet av mina heltidsstudier, snart färdig med 4,5 år. Jag har tre barn och det funkar jättebra, man får se det som ett jobb! Lycka till!

Lycka till med jobb och studier. hetsa inte upp dig bara, och splittra dig inte med en massa annat. Avsätt de här åren till att uppnå ditt mål.
Själv studerade jag när barnen var små och det gick bra. Jag gjorde ju förstås inte det ovanpå ett heltidsjobb, men halvtid emellanåt.
Vivian verkar väldigt snygg!
