ATC's and One Door Closes

I had yet another sleepless night - its only 7.30am and I have been up for over two hours already - two loads of laundry out and some petals drying outside - yesterday my boss asked to see me just before home time. I have been there two months out of a six month contract. To start the conversation she said 'One door closes and another one opens'.... and funnily enough rather than thinking optimistically as the phrase suggests I knew something bad was coming... sure enough, she told me my contract is going to end at the beginning of August - in fact 2 weeks after I come back from New York! So where is the door opening??? I have no idea - to me it's just another one being slammed in my face! One door closes has been running through my head all night!

Sorry - had to get that off my chest.
Now to more interesting things.. tomorrow Urchfont Manor College has its open day - if you are in the area do call in - I will be showing just two of my most recent corsets as part of the two groups I belong to and will show you some of the other exhibits tomorrow (or Monday)

Here are three more ATC's I have received - from Sheila Susanna from Spain and Gemma also from Spain So thanks very much ladies.

Here is the progress on Peaceblossom - some more pods in production and the current pile of leaves

Oh no, I know just how you feel, hubby is being made redundant AGAIN, looks like he may get redeployed but all the limbo is sending me crackers :( Sending you any spare energy I have. The older I get the more I realise we are all just a number and no employer really cares anymore

I know about sleepless nights. My husband recently had a stroke, will have shunt surgery Tuesday and then rehab. I love your ATCs!

Chin up, now you know, the door will open soon, I'm sure. Lucky you with the atc's, have you seen my fabulous birthday postcards?

Sorry to hear aboout loosing your job, it seems no-ones job is safe. I have had my hour cut and my pay reduced by a third, starting in September. I was told if I didnt like it I would loose my job. I always thought teaching was a 'safe' job! I hope something good happens for you soon

So sorry to hear that bad news. Hopefully, a new door will open soon for you...

DIAN said...

Oh I meant to say I love the atcs.

DIAN said...

Oh what a horrid conversation to have. I do hope the next path is a positive one for you with plenty of opportunity to continue to grow creatively. All the best.

Sorry to hear about your job Anna, I really hope something else comes up for you. How did the open day go? I was hoping to make it, but it was the day after I got back from holiday and time just got away from me.
