So it's October already, how did that happen?
I have to admit that I am looking forward to stitching my Christmas Ornament this month and will be starting that when I finish work today :)
The job that I started five weeks ago now is going well, the people are nice, the work is interesting and I am hoping that it will provide me with some challenges. I have been making an effort every day to leave the house looking my best, it's not a requirement for the job and it's very informal so dress is not specified, but I have found that it puts me in a better mood and I feel better when I make the effort and people are treating me differently a little. I wouldn't have believed it but it's true! So I intend to carry on because I am actually enjoying my new found confidence.
That being said I had a moment yesterday, one that some of you may also have had, and it was so embarrassing!
On Tuesday night I had quite a steamy dream about a former colleague, he still works within the organisation, but I have changed departments. Now, he is friendly and well mannered, about 10 years younger than me, and in the two years we worked together we probably said a total of twenty words to one another. Then yesterday, the day after the steamy dream, I was returning to my office after lunch and saw him heading towards me on the same path. I smirked to myself and expected the usual, a smile, a head tilt, eyebrow raise, non-verbal acknowledgement. What I got was not that!
He stopped and started talking to me, opening with, "I didn't realise that was your last week until you were gone!", I smiled and chatted about what had happened and asked about how it was going over there, he said he was really glad that I was back, which was nice and we parted ways. So basically, we said more to each other then that ever before. Funny how that is sometimes, right? But the point of this story is that the whole time he was talking, I was trying not to blush! It was as if he knew what we had been up to the night before or rather the dream version of him and it was that level of awkwardness. I was still cringing for about fifteen minutes after the event! Doh! I have to be careful who I have steamy dreams about now.
In other news, I have decided to visit Manchester for my birthday, and the three days that follow. I have been before but I never really got to visit any of the great architectural buildings there and so that is my plan. I don't know anyone in Manchester and I guess spending my birthday alone may sound a bit sad but I am hoping that it won't be! I will have some stitching to do!
And finally, I am booking tickets this week for the stitching show at Birmingham NEC, it's in November I think....or December...but the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) has lots of halls that run events at the same time. It is really easy to get to for me and I like going there. As well as a stitching show they are having an Art show and a Cake Show, well my mother is the painter and my sister the baker so I am hoping to drag them both along! Are you going?
I also have to decide about nanowrimo plans, will you be taking part, do you want to be cheer buddies?
I hope you all have something fun planned for the month too!
