October is going to be an interesting sort of month in my office, I think, for several reasons.
Firstly, I’m beginning the wind-down of the day-job and the handing over to my replacement. The count-down is now ON.
Secondly, I have to get my act together to make sure that I’m ready for November posts. Several months ago, I made a list of all the posts and projects I would need to complete or organise for November, and possibly part of December, so that I could allow myself time away from Life Ever Crafting while I settled into life with a baby. So far, I haven’t done anything else with that list. Probably ought to.
And thirdly, because I decided that what I really needed to do while I was on maternity-leave was an Open University history module. For fun, mostly, but also to keep my brain active, on the grounds that baby probably won’t mind what I’m saying, as long as I’m talking/reading to it. But again, I’m going to need to get a little ahead of myself, so I can take some time off in November. This might also bleed over into here, and there might be some historically-flavoured sorts of posts. It’s been a while since I was last a student, though. Might take a bit of getting used to, especially with Real Life and a baby to contend with at the same time.
Mind you, I still have those two crochet projects for baby still to finish as well…
