I have had a little blogging break while I digested a couple of largish pieces of news. It seems in our house we can go months with nothing dramatic happening at all, then a week will come along where we have so much to think and worry about that it's barely possible to sleep. This has been one of those weeks.
Our first news is that we are expecting to transfer in the next 18 months or so. From sunny, subtropical Brisbane to cripes-it's-snowing-today Canada. Toronto, to be exact. I am finding it hard to get my head around this. It's been a little pipedream of ours for ages, but Beloved Hubby's boss has promised he'll actually make it happen. There are projects going on here next year that Beloved Hubby is keen to be a part of, but after that ...
I am excited and scared about the cold, the kid's schooling, housing (we would be very baaad neighbours in an apartment), how we'll get around (I can't drive in snow!!??). You name it, I have worried about it in the past week! I keep telling myself that it's such a long way off into the future, and there's no point fretting about these things now, but I wouldn't be me without something interesting to worry about.
In other breaking news, it seems likely I have fibromyalgia, and I am being treated for it. I have been feeling very tired and as though I have the flu for months and months ( I don't remember exactly when it started, but I started seeing doctors about it in April). I am really hoping that this diagnosis is accurate, and that I'll start feeling a bit better soon! I was starting to wonder if it wasn't all in my head.
An update about my Swirly Sampler. I could not find an actual letter S in any of the quilting and scrapbooking stores I visited, but I did find these swirly clips, one of which will work perfectly as a swirly S. I will attach the S this weekend. There is a huge craft and quilt show at the convention centre starting on Wednesday, and I will try to find a suitable frame there before I resort to the expense of a framer.
