I’m officially a student


It’s official. I am going to be a student in 2014. At least part-time anyway. I have all my enrolment details. Now I have the joy of figuring out the uni’s online system for enrolling in subjects and providing information.

As for everything else, there isn’t a lot going on.

Work is a pain, but then it always is.

I haven’t been doing as much sewing as I would like. When I was tidying up my sewing room a couple of weeks ago I pulled out an old cross stitch to finish and I have been working on that while watching tv in the evenings. I’m starting to realise why I stopped doing cross stitch. Of course it gets finished eventually, but I sew for what feels like ages and when I look at what I have done I have only covered a small amount of canvas.

I’ve been trying to get motivated to make some bags this weekend, but am not really feeling it. Having said that it is only 8am on the Saturday of a long weekend, I might get some steam up yet.



I had doing a blog post on my to do list today, so I am making myself do one; even though I would be much rather sitting on the couch with the air-conditioner on, reading my library books. I figure I need to remake the habit of regular posting. Which means I am actually going to have to go do some stuff worth posting about. I’m not sure how likely that is, I sewed myself out pretty much at the end of last year, making lots of last-minute Christmas bags. Now all my sewing stuff is packed away in the sewing room, except for the TV hexagons, some knitting and a cross stitch kit. I found the cross stitch when tidying all the other stuff away and thought I really must finish that, so It has been added to the pile of stuff to do when watching tv.

Because I like a crazy challenge I am also in the process of applying to do an MBA by distance education. At one point I had all my degrees, my transcripts and my high school records in a package but when I went looking I couldn’t find them. I can’t remember if I lost them in the flooding, or if I have just lost them. I have been waiting for a replacement academic transcript from my last uni, which I received last week. Now I just need to get a certified copy and I can finish my application.

So, I am starting to get organised for the year ahead. Now I just need to do something about the crazy heat (43.9C here yesterday) and find myself an intriguing sewing project.
