Update- Myself, September Stars and yadda yadda

Well I've only just noticed that it's been over a month since I've posted here!

What have I been doing you say? Well mostly work! This week alone lots of overtime including working for six hours on a saturday! (First time in over 3.5 years!).

September is a manic time for any educational establishment but if you work in an understaffed Payroll department for a large multi site organisation.... well manic is putting it lightly!

I did have a semi decent Performance Management Review where from October 1st I have defined responsibilities and a miniscule increase to go with it.

Tomorrow also marks the first week where I...... drum roll..... become a part timer... (if you can call 34 hours a week part time when a full week is 37! Monday to Thursday).

Fridays will be my "College" day where I am undertaking 40 credits towards my degree Wildlife Education and Wildlife and Media. Not only will I be learning to edit and standing in the pouring rain filming I will be learning teaching theory, observations and how to do schemes of work which ultimately leads to something scary.............

Spending 90 minutes with National Diploma students (16-18 year olds) teaching them something! Oh dear... what have I let myself in for??? Interesting times ahead.

I keep failing with my list an item each day but hopefully October will be a fresh start. Some random goodies I've listed this month :) Please click on the picture to take you to the item.... better be careful with the cats...... soon they will be turned into presents so get in there quick :O

What else have I been working on?? Well the below are just a sneaky peek of what's to come........ sometime this week they will be on the Folksy Shop but if you can't wait that long please let me know! Either through folksy or FB or email

I'm not the only one who has been busy! Dawn of Lily's Night Garden does some beautiful cards, diarys and notebooks......

Please check her out :)

Hope everyone isn't as cold as I am! Hot chocolate tonight and maybe the Bagpuss Hot Water Bottle....
