i really struggle with that concept, balance for a start, but the whole work/life thing. either i dont want to go to work AT ALL or i get totally into it and think about it all the time and spend so much time here other things get neglected. trust me, the latter version happens rarely, but its been a bit like that this week. i had all sorts of plans that have been thwarted by the relentless momentum that is my new project, budgets, workplans, timelines, hiring people, buying equipment, redrafting budgets and timelines and workplans. i have not had much knitting time, and i have mostly been working on the celaeno shawl which should be finished this weekend if i dont run out of yarn first. i havent cast on the sock club nutkins yet because i realised that trent doesnt have a new pair of socks for the upcoming winter. i have been working on these
plain toe ups in regia kaffe fasset self striping, and i will try and get at least one done before i start another pair for myself. interesting that i can be somewhat disciplined in my knitting at the moment but not much anywhere else!
in all the rush that has been this year so far (oh my god its already march), i had managed to let my hair get very long, like, the longest curl down to my waist type long, which is just stupid in our weather. by the way, you know what i discovered was the best product for my hair? being in america. no humidity there folks (at least not in winter), i had lovely soft shiny bouncy curls the whole time i was there. then i come home and its insta-frizz. great. thanks for that. anyway, i finally got it cut last night, and coloured. i cant really get a good photo but this one shows the stripey bits a little,
its still pretty long at the back but lots of layers around the face
and what a grumpy face it is! must be because im at work. but at least its friday. i have two days of not very much at all planned, and i intend to take full advantage.
