I have not joined in for AGES with the WOYWW posts but I got an unexpected day off work today due to the heating not working at school - thankfully there are no pupils in today and hopefully we will have heat tomorrow.
Anyway , back to my poor desk- not a lot happening creatively here. I did just make a pair of earrings with some opals and the ring ( close up below) .
The small black book is to contain all the challenges ( or photos of challenges ) from the 64 million artists ( see last blog post for links) and the larger black one is my 2018 journal - an old Filofax that I have printed out new pages for .
The paperwork to the LHS is to be completed on behalf of my daughter asap. She has learning difficulties and needs lots of support so i was totally amazed that I have been able to get her a very small job at the school where I work cleaning for a couple of hours a night. It is pretty unique as her boss used to be her teaching assistant when she was at school ( a different smaller school ). As I have worked here for over 20 years and helped run play schemes here, Meg knows the place really well and some of the people, although she will not talk to anyone she doesn't know. Her best friend is also working here and they are allowed to work together. They even walk up and back together - its only a 10 min walk. The hours and pay mean that she is not earning enough for it to effect her benefits but it has made SO much difference to her confidence. I am SO happy for her as this time last year she was so depressed. So that is my next task, completing the form and a letter to go with it - not procrastinating at all !!
How proud am I off to work AND smiling( although she did say that it wasn't fair that I am home and she has to go in !)
Here is a close up of the earrings and ring.
Can't promise to join in every week but I WILL try and to be more creative.
Love Soojay xx
