Congratulations Trish! You’ve scored yourself a fab fondue party for 4 thanks to our good friends Udder Delights
You can tell I still have the heart of a Gleek as I have had the “Fondue for Two” theme running through my head since this wonderful email popped into my inbox today.
Winner Winner chicken dinner…or cheese dinner. hehe
Cheezy grins all round :D
OK enough gloating but it is so nice that good things are happening in my life and my laugh has returned.
Cooked pumpkin soup today.
I was procrastinating. There was painting to be done and I couldn’t get motivated.
Stalked a couple of friends, did some loads of washing. I can be really productive when avoiding what really needs to be done.
Been a good week. Monday’s airport jaunt was a pile of fun and if you follow me on Instagram, (tish2312) you would have seen a pic of us all, me in my fabulous new coat and cute boots, looking intently at the art.
Lots of laughs and just what I needed. Going to miss those girls and the art classes with them.
I can’t go back though. After a pile of indecision, I decided that I should get it all off my chest and write a letter of feedback to the school.
I said nice stuff. And politely told them of what had concerned me while I had been a student.
The reply I received back was ..terse. Perhaps even just a tad condescending and patronising.
Got told twice not to email back a reply to their reply as they were on holidays.
Don’t plan to contact them again. Even after they return from their trip.
But as they say, sometimes when one door shuts, another opens and I was thrilled to be offered a place working with my teacher at her private classes (apart from being employed to teach at the school, she takes small groups several times a week at her own studio).
My recent issues with the classes were mostly caused by the management of the school and I adore my teacher so this is the best possible solution.
And the classes will be Saturday mornings which will be much easier to manage given that work is still a little erratic despite being a much happier environment.
Talking erratic, never thought I would be working past 6pm but Monday I am being introduced to the “Bulk Dock” and will be working there temporarily from 4-8pm while I am surplus to the office and the Bulk Dock needs staff.
Back to sorting and checking incoming bulk mail and wearing my steel caps. *sigh.
Still, something new and different and I am sure I will manage it especially as it is only a short-term thing and probably not more than a couple of days a week for the next couple of months. (fingers crossed)
And I get most of the day off before…
Anyway, it is a job and helps pay for art classes and those art supplies which I did end up using this afternoon.
Temperature feels like it is dropping and I need to bring the washing in.
Hope y’all have a great weekend
Hugs and smiles and painty fingers waving :)
