Right at the centre of the battle

It’s official, I’m moving at last. My future flat is now empty and being readied for my arrival, and my current flat is… a mess. I have been feeling like I wasn’t making any dent at all my stuff, like I wanted to get rid of many things but didn’t manage to and it seems finally yesterday I started seeing some change. For the last month or so, I’ve given away a few more books, DVDs and other stuff. I’m now looking at appliances I can recycle, or give to charity. I’m being ruthless in everything I’m discarding. Old presents, toys, electronics, everything must go. Some are good to be given away, others are as well, but have a layer of grease from being stored in the wrong place for two years (the kitchen, on top of the cupboards), but that’s what happens when you don’t have enough space. I almost threw away my bright pink GameBoy, but I didn’t (not only it was a present from someone I cared about back then, but it’s …

The day before the day

Tomorrow is the day, the moment of truth. The knitting club is launching, and I am really excited about it. As I’ve been mentioning, almost nonstop (sorry for being a bore!), there’s a new knitting club at work, of which I decided to take charge… Which makes sense, since it was my idea! I have been knitting a lot, trying to remember how to do things, and writing a guide people can take home. I’ve done and undone many stitches, trying to find the best way of explaining a technique, and casted on countless of stitches. This is it. I’m done. OK, I’m never really going to be done-done. I decided to stop, because I was putting on finishing touches to the guide, and decided to add some funny memes, and it was starting to get out of hand (I mean, when you get a meme of Yoda talking about knitting, you probably should stop, right?). Thing is I didn’t want it to sound like a very girlie (or granny) thing, or too dry and …

Breaking News

So, today I officially left my team in Sales. I’ve been working in sales for the past (almost) five years, and now it’s time to turn the page. On Monday, I’m starting as an Internal Communications Coordinator, in the Marketing department – still in the same company! This is very exciting for me, as I get to be a bit more creative at work, and have the difficult task of engaging my fellow coworkers with news and content about our company! I can’t believe I just wrote about work, a topic I had decided not to write about here a long time ago! Anyway, more news! I’m moving soon, so I’m now searching for a new abode. As some of you already know, my brother has come to live in London, and we’ve decided to share a flat. So please, if you hear of any nice affordable place in London, ideally South-ish, let me know. Moving date is set for end of July! I’m viewing a bunch of flats tomorrow, so wish me good luck! …
