I feel like I am sleepwalking through a very dark cloud at the moment. But, as a dear friend pointed out, the darkest clouds have a silver lining. It has been raining or threatening to rain much of the past few days. The sky has looked dark and bruised, and it has been just the thing to sip tea and curl up on the sofa with my crocheted throw on my knee, watching Pride and Prejudice.
I think I need more time to find the silver linings properly, I am still very bruised at the moment. My job share partner did not get a job either, and while she is very angry I am just overwhelmingly sad. I have been here for 11 years, and have so many friends, I can't believe that in ten weeks I will be leaving them....and have no idea where I will be leaving to go...
But there are small glimmers. I have really found out how lovely my friends and family and blog friends are! I have plans for a novel to scribble in my spare time, and I have decided that I want to read the works of Jane Austen in the order they were published, and of course watch a few adaptations along the way!
Oh, and I am thinking of knitting a cushion as well.....keeping busy is the thing, I think!
More tea, anyone?
