Happy accidents…

I turned up for class this morning to find that there had been a timetabling error and my class wasn’t actually until the afternoon!

Firstly, there was no way I was going to waste the morning and secondly, I went into mild panic about how our little family was going to manage such a change. As you can imagine, this whole studying, working, mothering thing has been managed with military precision.

I quickly checked the timetable to see what else might be available to me & dropped into photographic screen printing. I explained the situation and the tutor was most understanding. I actually got a ‘try before you buy’ class. Happy, happy me.

Mucho, giant, enormous excitement. I am going to have an absolute ball!

My first week at Uni began rather shakily I have to say. It has finished in grand style. Wednesday’s class got a huge tick from me and today was just a wonderful gift from the universe. I am in the right place.

Happy weekend folks.

More creative spaces here.

    I know it is cliche but I am a firm believer of ‘when one door closes, another opens’.

    It sounds like you were meant to be in that class this afternoon.

    And from one juggler to the another – you will make it happen x

    PS: Am missing our daily ramblings already!

    SCREENPRINTING, you say? I swear it was invented for you.

    You are on such a great adventure, Kirsty!
    I admire you doing it – I’ve known a few friends with young kids that went back to uni and it’s such a big thing to undertake as a mother. All the scheduling and home work… but so exciting! Go you! x
