I have made progress on the sock. I have turned the heel and am heading off down the foot! Yay me!
Photos? It was craft night. No times for photos.
Plus I got some Vesper sock yarn! Kellie got it for me :-) It was so nice to get something pretty, and I am one of only two people who are known to have Vesper yarn in Australia! It is nice being special.
Photos? Well it is dark and no photos. Photos later.
My days are being total and utter drags at present. I am not happy at work. I feel that it has been decided that I am a Crap Trainer and whilst they need a trainer and need someone with my research skills, they are not willing to invest any effort in upskilling me. Money? You have to be joking! We can spend $1500 on someone else, but you want to do a $200 course? (Guess who is considered to be a good trainer? Not the person who did the expensive course, no never, not at all!) Sigh. I am not that bad a trainer. I am not the best in the world but I am by no means terrible. Getting told you are not a good trainer and then basically being told to go away and make yourself into a good trainer with no funding, no help, no training and no feedback saying what I am doing wrong is simply WRONG! Why bother giving feedback with no solution or options?
And I am still cut that Andreas died. After how many years of being a heavy smoker, he stopped smoking once he was diagnosed. Too late! Sigh. If you smoke, please, for your family's sake if not your own, give it up. It's not too late. I watched my mother slowly die from bowel cancer that metastasised to her lungs and believe me you do not want to die like that with your lungs turning to concrete over a six month period and every breath such an effort that you are exhausted simply from breathing. Giving up smoking will do you so much good and there'll be more money for yarn!
OK off the soapbox. I just hate seeing people smoke their lives away. I know it is a true addiction but if alcoholics can stay off the booze, smokers can fight the smoking bug.
