I applied for a teaching job (preferring to fill up leave vacancies only) and got it.
I am now teaching KG kids. There are 29 kids under my care. Working hours 8 a.m. to 3 a.m.
I applied for a job as a content writer and got that as well. I am writing on crochet related topics.
The pay for both the jobs suck. But it beats sulking and moping around the house after my elder son left for college. Fact is, while I love teaching and writing, I am not technically trained to do either. These past five months I have proved that I have a flair for both and I can do a better job than those qualified to do them. So, I am now in a better position to negotiate. I have taken some positive steps and am waiting to see what happens.
I came across this cute rick-rac owl in the CQ online mag. This clever, yet simple design will look real cute on a kid's dress or on pockets. The next time I go shopping for supplies, I will buy some rick-rack - I am itching to try it out. Maybe I can try it out with silk ribbons... No. I don't think so... Silk ribbon is not as flexible as rick-rack. So rick rack it is.
