A lot can happen in a week....

You can finish some socks and find out they fit their intended recipient and he likes them!
You can start some more socks and decide that maybe they look a little too "80's" to give away as a present to either of the friends with birthdays in August. I love the colours in the ball, but am really not sure about them as Jaywalkers. I think the yellow makes them a bit too garish. What do you think?You can get an amazing parcel from your One Skein Pal. Containing one skein of the beautiful Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies in "Watercolour"; a fantastic smelling sandalwood candle and some fab art deco buttons. I have no idea what I am going to do with this yarn... but I could look at it and stroke it all day. I love it! Thanks One Skein Pal.
You can also get a new job! Not one in London though, one in Birmingham. That job you decided to start looking for about 6 weeks ago thinking it would take a year or so to find something suitable. You can hand in your notice at work and start planning your last 4 weeks living in London. You can spend a weekend doing more DIY so you can think about contacting estate agents to sell the flat your boyfriend has been slaving over for the last 20 months. You can start looking for house to buy in Wolverhampton. You can contemplate how life living in the same house as your boyfriend of 4 years is going to pan out (even if you are just moving in until the flat/house selling/buying happens). You can realise just how much you will miss all of your fantastic friends in London and you can worry about how you are going to make new ones in a new city. But most of all you can be really really really happy and excited about the next chapter of your life and get on with making some more socks for 30th birthday presents :0)
Hope everyone else has had a good week too.

WOW! Congrats on the new job... at least you'll still have your blog-friends to keep you going until you find some new ones!

Alot of changes in just one week. Someitmes it happens that way when you're ready for it.

Oh and I like the yellow and purple and blue and green. Maybe a bit 80's but still cool.

Those socks are perfect.

The yellow looks great.

Congratulations on the new job!

Hope you aren't so crazy busy that you don't have time to post about everything.
