The 2015 school year has begun and this kiddo has started kindergarten!
She’s so ready. She breezed through her first day and I’m sure we’ll see her take off in the coming few weeks.
The boys are back too and I think they’ll be fine. It’s just school right?
Naturally, I am back at school too and this year, I’m working full time. I’ve been working part time since finishing university, but think that working full time will put me in a better position to get a permanent job, if anything suitable ever crops up. I’m really pleased my school has been supportive of me and I’m really excited about my additional work day and all the challenges it will bring, but I suspect it will negatively impact my sewing output 🙁
The third major change to hit our house this year – yes, even though January isn’t over yet! – is that my husband has made a massive career change. He has been a plumber since he finished school and has been bored senseless for years. He is now heading into an office role, designing plumbing and hydraulics for large developments and buildings. While this may not sound significant, he has been in an active, labour intensive role for years and now will sit in front of a computer, wear office clothes, and only work 5 days (only the wife of a tradie who works every Saturday will understand my excitement at having a husband at home to help with Saturday sport).
Naturally, these big changes in our lives bring much excitement and a huge amount of anxiety and stress. Finger crossed we make it to the end of term 1 in one piece! And hopefully I’ll still be able to sew a little to keep my sanity. Although with my back log of sewing projects to share, I think blogging is my current problem, not sewing 🙂
