Hello blogging my old friend

It has been a while. How are you? Are things good with you? We are all in one piece here, it has been one heck of a summer- Simon underwent spinal surgery, which went well thanks and then we moved house......again. Do you want to hear all about it? Shall we talk about the past, or the future. After such a long break I'm not sure how much back-story is necessary. Anyway my instinct is to be looking forward. After failing to finish my City and Guilds in the three years I have just paid a further enrolment. I Need to get this nailed, but I don't have anywhere to work or organise my supplies at the moment. The loft conversion should start next week so there is a light at the end of the tunnel- all be it a very distant one. I am reminded of the amazing work created in Peru and rural China though- I don't suppose the ladies who created this stitching have a dedicated work room so perhaps it will be possible to progress?
The Chain Gang is continuing to thrive which is lovely- we have a plan to knit a cardigan in a day to raise money for this space.
In other news a friend 'from the gang' and I are investigating business ideas. She has had quite a summer too and I think we are both ready for a change. Tiny baby steps though, we both have families and jobs and lives to keep jogging along so this is a weeny carrot seed we are planting rather than a huge fat acorn! 
On the making front I seem to have been knitting.....a lot..... this is simply due to it's portable nature and the fact that even if I can't find the right sized needles it is not the end of the world to buy another cheap pair. Like I said though, time to get my shoulder back to the C&G grind stone, I have come so far on the journey and need to take those last few weary steps.

Hooray. I'm pleased to hear your news. No wonder Simon needed spinal surgery lifting your stash from house to house! I'm glad to hear you aren't giving up on the city and guilds. Happy new home happy new term....happy new loft when it comes!
