I've been having such a nice little time this past week, my first week between employment engagements. I haven't done a lot, but I have slept and chilled out, and knitted, and even had a creative burst and sketched out a number of ideas for potential knitwear designs. It's been fun. Most importantly it's like I've been recharging the batteries, or resting the troops, whichever metaphor you fancy. I don't want to be without work for much longer, but in the meantime this like a nice little holiday and frankly it's aces.
Plans for the coming week are for a new/old computer to replace this poor old clapped out one I have at home. My old work was discarding a pc that was only a couple of years old, because it needs about $90 spent on it for a new hard drive. So they gave it to me after writing it off, and I'm going to get it fixed and upgraded for around $170. Not a lot of money, and it should tide me over until I can afford the Mac laptop I want.
There's a couple of other things like having lunch with Mikey (the lovely ex), going to the Powerhouse Museum to look at the textiles, and probably the NSW Art Gallery too, and maybe braving that trip to IKEA, that a bit of weekday leisure time will allow. Nice. Oh, and hopefully a job interview for the job I applied for the other day that I really want.
And if I'm really lucky, then maybe there'll be another Nate episode on Oprah, like there was yesterday. I know it's a small thing to wish for, but seriously I loves me some Nate Berkus.
So sweet, so pretty. Such a dab hand with a sequined throw pillow.
