I had a strange thought yesterday - "Maybe I should get a proper job. One where I leave the house, see people and earn a decent amount of money." I even looked at job vacancies in the area. Then I looked at the fees for a local nursery (over £900 a month!) and gave up on the whole idea. I'm having a hard time at the minute. I do every time Little Boy's teething but I'm particuarly lonely and miserable this time. My nearest friends and family live 3 hours drive away so there's no one I can phone and ask to come round if it all gets a bit much. We moved here when Little Boy was 3 months old and I went to the local mum and baby group to meet people but they spent 2 hours discussing local gossip and I never went back, so I suppose it's my fault. Getting a part time job seemed like a good solution - I could meet some people, have a bit of time away from Little Boy and earn some extra money (so I can finally replace my poor old laptop, bought in 2006 and struggling with the demands of modern 3D modeling software). But it's not going to happen so I'll just have to hang in there and look forward to the days when Little Boy's done teething and he's a pleasure to be around once more. Oh and work extra hard to sell enough clocks to buy a new laptop!
Sorry for that big moan, I try to keep the blog cheerful but every once in a while I need to vent. To balance things out I'm going extra cheerful with today's item selections - lots of bright, colourful rainbows everywhere. Enjoy!
