Back On Track

So, after a not particular short hiatus, I've decided to get back into the swing of blogging. I seem to have lost my way a little with this blog.
I'm not entirely sure what direction the blog should take. Anyway, I'll get back in to it and attempt to, at least, record my meagre attempts at crafty things!
Well, what have I been up to since last posting. My biggest change has been getting a new job. I've managed to dramatically cut down on the stupid mileage I was doing. So, big reduction on the petrol spend? Yes, but (isn't there always a but?) I've gone from a pleasant drive across the Cheshire countryside to a stop/start journey around the city. It's nine miles, but can take up to 1 1/2 hours some nights. This isn't fun.
During my second week, I was asked to work in Liverpool. Whilst travelling along the M62, I had a minor accident - no physical injury, but very frightening, not to mention expensive. Luckily, I had the AA to call on. I did, however have to stand at the side of the motorway for two hours.
This year has been strange and unsettling. I'll be glad to see the back of it. As for that other thing going on at the end of the month, I just have no interest at all.
I'm opting out!
Back tomorrow with something a bit more upbeat.
