Ta daaaaah.....



No... I did not mean this beautiful boat against a backdrop of the largest windfarm in the world shimmering in the heat (and that wasn't this week, the heat I mean, that was a couple of weeks back!).

No, I meant the (partial) reappearance of myself on my blog! Hi everyone|! *waves*. I have re - emerged from study land. Finished the course, and am going to be the proud owner of a Certificate stating that I am now officially a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language !

It was an intensive course and I found myself studying all the time and worrying about the next assignment and the next and the next.... However, all done and dusted now and looking for work.

I am not quite back to my own bloggy self yet.. It needs a bit of acclimatizing jumping out of the study bubble into real life. I thought that on finishing the course I would be full of energy, doing all the things I could not do for a while... like catching up with friends, (as well as housework and admin etc.. yuk...) and sewing (yay!) but I find that funnily enough the energy has left me completely.. A sort of backlash if you like.

Oh well.. I am sure I will get there eventually and I will endeavour to catch up with things on the blog slowly but securely!

Thank you SO MUCH to all those kind friends who sent me words of encouragement. I so very much appreciate your kind thoughts and good wishes. Thanks also for all who have understood I had to disappear for a while.. it was tough, but I did it!

I am still not reading blogs so no idea what you are all up to yet. I am starting slowly and catching up with one thing at a time. I am going to prioritize my bee blocks first. The February block is in the making! Thank you Julie (Forest poppy) for all your patience! The March and April ones are not far behind now.

Hope you have all been doing lovely and wonderful things whilst I was 'away' and are happy and healthy! See you all soon !

Congratulations! Having the course behind you and getting your certification must be a huge relief. Ahhh .... take a deep breath and start in slowly. No need to rush back into sewing.

Glad you're back though and I smiled when I saw you pop up in my reader. Love your beautiful pics while I'm having my morning coffee :)
