Moving swiftly on

By redpanda On March 28th, 2011

I started a new job last week…….as an accounts assistant in a small firm that supplies the catering industry with fruit, veg and other stuff like dairy and dry goods……….I am quite enjoying it as a lot of it is learning new skills………I started taking and making phone calls today as it was a bit manic at times and I am starting to understand what some of the jargon used is………..its nice working part time in this weather too……..means you get some of the best of the sunshine……..

Still plugging away at the diet………..I have started making my own cakes and sweet things so that I know exactly what goes into them……….I cook more or less everything from scratch as it is so baking is just coming back into the kitchen……..I like cooking Sundays…………making all sorts of things while dinner is cooking………like soups for lunch and the like……….I get a great sense of satisfaction from making something that I know people will like……..

Speedway season has now started……..the first one on TV is tonight and I have no idea who is racing…………looking forward to the GP series though………..

Going to a bead fair on Saturday……….I have recently got back into an old hobby of mine for a change………I find it relaxing and fun to create different designs and colour schemes for ear rings, bracelets and necklaces………..some may look strange but the colours work well together and are not what you would expect to work in that way………hoping to see some good bargains there as the tickets were free anyway………its near London so not that far to go really……….

More in a few days…………

Been a long time

and I could say so much has happened which is true but I would not know where to start………so I guess starting again is a good way of doing things………..

I have done some work but I am looking again……..still got knee problems and just when I think it is safe to get back on the bile something goes wrong with it again………..gone back to an old hobby that I started years ago of making beaded jewellery and hope to sell some soon………still trying to lose weight………..got a long way to go with that and I am getting more and more adventurous with the diet recipes……….

On the plus side I seem to be getting better………..the depression is lifting and the good days now out number the bad days which can only be good………..I feel better about things in general and my days are less stressful at the moment so the 4 months I have not worked have not been in vain…………I am able to be positive about lots of things that in the past I would not have been…….I think about what I can do rather than what I can’t do……….I look at what I am able to do rather than thinking I would not be able to do that……..

I also have another website which is geared towards my looking for work……..www.karenhenley.me.uk which contains a blog but that is reserved for job searching issues…………

I will try and update this regularly………..a couple of times a week I hope………rather than going hell for leather at it and then leaving it for ages………
