A quiet day…

The roses

Apart from the surprise flowers this morning, MY day has been awfully quiet. I spent it working on Candy Green (my fingerless gloves) and musing on how remarkable the day has been so far.

Remember the hunt for that elusive job in either UK/NZ/France? After numerous rejections, there is hope left. It is nothing big or sure for that matter but like Dad, Nil (he sent me flowers for the first time in eons and he called too!!!!! *beams*) and I all agree, it is still a start. Better than nothing, if you know what I mean. Hopefully I’ll hear more good news over the next few days.

My knitting project(s) have taken on a new turn with colleagues commissioning me to work on their own versions of Candy Green (yes, I found myself taking on orders! Unbelievable!). I’m definitely happy for the practice and of course, the excuse to do more knitting and some yarn shopping on the side.

Another shot of Candy green!

So yes, I had a quiet, simple yet meaningful birthday in every sense of the word(s).


ps: No, I didn’t get a manicure – my nails are naturally like that.
