Before I went into hospital I was doing a craft course with Jemima from Tied with a Ribbon and Claire from Claire Turpin Designs. The course was a Christmas one and although I missed a couple of the dates due to being sick, I still managed to make it to the first two classes where we made some pretty bunting and a Christmas stocking. And I even managed to finish them!
Seeing as I can't go back to work this year I have all this free time ahead of me! I'm hoping I use a fair chunk of it doing crafting and making some handmade Christmas presents for family and friends. Unfortunately the no work means the money side of things will be a bit tight for a while, until my income protection kicks in (if you don't have this I strongly strongly strongly advise that you look into getting it, you never know what your health is going to do!!) I am looking forward to the challenge of managing my money though, I've always been quite bad at it so hopefully this will help me learn to save and manage what funds I do have a lot better... fingers crossed anyhow!
I'll be looking for a Christmas meme to sign up to, surely someone has started one? I need to get motivated if I want to get things made and finished!
