Happy Dance!

Hello my Lovelies :)

I'm doing a happy dance today as I just found out that I got the job!

I ended up having to attend three interviews so they could be sure that they really wanted me - but honestly who wouldn't want little ole' me - lol!

I start on Monday next week; I had the positioned confirmed over the phone by the HR manager, she was surprised that my new boss had not yet called me to tell me the good news - c'est la vie - it doesn't matter. Now I am just waiting for my new boss to call & confirm the final details - start time, etc.

So I'm trying to spend this week catching up on all those little errands we never get around to; like repairing shoes & boots that have been broken for nearly a year, replacing watch batteries & getting the band on another watch fixed so it can be worn; I also need to get the clasp replaced on a gold necklace.

The original clasp broke nearly 18 months ago & I got it fixed straight away but within a month or so the new catch broke again, I had intended to take the necklace back to the jewellers who did the repair [as they had talked me into a different type of catch as a replacement] but I always forgot about it or got distracted doing other things while at the shopping centre. Eventually I remembered but it was more than 6 months later & I knew that I could not prove what happened in the first place, so my beautiful gold necklace with the Amethyst pendant got put in the bottom of my jewellery box & I forgot about it for quite some time. Then, about 2 months ago an old friend asked me where the necklace was & I realised that I still hadn't got the clasp fixed - so I decided that would be one of the things I would cross off my 'to do' list this week before I start at my new job. Now I just have to find another jeweller to complete the repair.

I also put the overlocker in for a service & repair; I was making hubby new pants for work the other day & got about half way through the process when the overlocker refused to work anymore; upon further inspection I realised that two moving parts had separated & there was no way to rectify the problem without the help of an expert. Hopefully the machine will be ready to pick up after work one day next week & then all I need to do is find some spare time to finish the project.

I'm still on holidays from university until 6 July, so I'm sure there will be a few spare nights to do some sewing; although I am currently trying to finish off one needlework project so that I can enter it into the Mudgeeraba Show at the end of June.

Can you believe that I still have in my possession the 40th birthday present/canvas creation that I made for my girlfriend ... incredible! I sent her an email the week before the Wintersun Festival to let her know I could pop over & deliver the present to her but did not hear back from her & so just assumed that she was busy showing her car at the festival. She has an amazing 1970's VW bug that has been restored & painted Pink & Purple - so, next time you are driving through the Tweed Heads area you might see her zooming along!

Now I'm thinking that I might use this as my entry into the Mudgeeraba Show ... that is if I don't get to catch up with my girlfriend before the end of this month; maybe then you will all finally be able to see some photos of my creation.

Anyway, I better run - I need to think of something to cook for dinner as I've been doing nearly all of the cooking lately now that hubby is working such long days.

Until next time, take care & make sure you hug & kiss the ones you love.

Mish :)
