I am going back to school! This is entirely because I want to buy a pencil case and a shiny brown satchel, of course.
This is something I have wanted to do for a while, but now Rose is almost three (yes, really – it’s gone that fast!) it’s the perfect time to dust off my brain. I am starting off with AS Level English Literature, which is three hours of classes a week and then a mountain of reading and writing. But it’s something I’ve longed to do for ages. I left school at sixteen and feel like having a handful of GCSEs doesn’t really count for anything, when I still have thirty odd years left of being employable. I am not sure what direction to go in afterwards, but I am hoping this will give me the confidence to do Other Things.
All this means that I doubt I will be blogging very much from now on. I have been finishing up outstanding projects these past few weeks and have also resigned myself to not starting anything new; maybe not even the Annual Festive Socks.
I will still pop up from time to time with updates, like Rose’s birthday cake (she wants a hedgehog-shaped one!) and perhaps if the workload doesn’t completely wear me out, a bit of crafty stuff as well. Plus much squeeing when Tudor Roses is finally reprinted! I don’t intend to abandon the blog; it’s been a huge part of my life for seven years and given me plenty of opportunities that I might not otherwise have had. I seriously love everyone who takes the time to comment on the blog, and will miss the interaction very much. I hope that you all have a brilliant and yarn-filled rest of the year.
