Back to feeling blue....

This time round I have a valid reason for feeling so down... sigh!

Life has has a habit of biting us in the butt :(

Every time we feel like we are getting ahead or that life will return to normal - something else happens and after a while its really hard to stay positive.

When hubby returned to work after being so sick - his boss took him to one side and told him that his job is under threat and that they would discuss it in depth in 2 weeks time (deadline for this meeting is this coming meeting at 2pm Australian Western Standard time) and the countdown clock in my brain is ticking... tick tock tick tock. Its been endless days of waiting already and Monday is going to be a really hard to deal with.

Hubby and I have gone through every possible outcome for this meeting... and we have our worst case scenarios all figured out inclusive of what we will do. The worst case scenario will be that we sell all of our worldly goods and possessions....and return to Victoria - landing first at his dad's place in Geelong and then starting a new life. Although I can deal with losing our stuff - its just possessions and nothing is irreplacable - and for some of our appliances - they will need to be replaced soon anyway so its no biggie... but its the thought of things like the kids losing all of their favourite toys, losing my *STASH*, losing some of the newer things that we have just bought... thats distressing to say the least.

Under any other circumstance I would have jumped at the chance to get out of this town and back to Victoria... or any of the Eastern States of Australia. To be closer to my friends and family... but not like this. So I just want to say - be careful what you wish for!!

Understandably I have not been able to concentrate on much craft wise... I have started a new knitted jumper for the littlest princess ( the last one I started is in a bag as a UFO as when I finished the back I discovered that my tension must have been off and its 4 sizes too big for her? A finish in the future I guess? or a bin job if worst case scenario happens) and my seaside treasures has had a few stitches added - I promise to update with some photos asap - my camera is still awol and hubbies has flat batteries (just put them on the charger) so on that note - take care and I will chat with you all asap. HUGs cause I need one :)

Chin up. I know that sounds trite, but you seem to be facing adversity head on in any case. Online friends can be the best sounding board - and very supportive too!

I've got a fairaisle vest that's a UFO - I started it as a gift for my nephew when he was 2. All I have to do is knit the neckband and armbands. He's now 33 with 2 girls of his own....too big to fit into it too now!
