I know I promised the next post would be about spinning but life has been a bit hectic and I have news.
Meet my lovely new friend. He's so new he doesn't have a name yet. He's an alpaca and he was bought for me by my wonderful friends and colleagues at Waterstones Walsall as a leaving gift.
I've got a new job at Waterstones Stratford-upon-Avon. I've just finished my first week and I'm loving the job, though I'm having to travel quite a lot to get there which is curtailing my knitting/spinning/weaving time rather. It was a big wrench to leave Walsall where I've been for six years and I miss my fantastic team there, but the time was right for me to move on.
This is not the only move I'll be making this year as we've come to the conclusion that we have finally filled Austin Towers to bursting point so we will be moving to a larger house, most likely in Wolverhampton. We still have some packing up of books, comics, wool, craft equipment etc to do before we can put our house on the market but we've made a start. We just have so much stuff!
Back soon with that spinning post.
