Things came to a head Saturday Evening. It wasn't just a case of the fur flying, pans were as well. I got out-tantrumed, by a very contrary HobbitKeeper. Lots of stress was vented and emotions were in the open. I sulked for a few days after, which is my way of coping with anger, being quiet, withdrawn and working things out in my mind.
But we're resolved and stronger for it, knowing each other better. The house is a little cleaner - smells more of bleach...... Knitting in front of the TV shall continue........... ;-)

If you are familiar with the song - 'The devil went down to Georgia', well I'm Johnny.
It's not quite hit me yet.
Confidence and the courage of my convictions are needed in abundance
But I have my husbands blessing and support, which means more than anything.

Each piece has been made from a seperate skein and look quite different. I like them both but I'm not sure if they are too different to work together. Bottom line is that they will still be used for the same bag hahaha! The colours are absolutely fantastic! I'd definitley recommend this type of yarn.
Pictures and Pattern to follow when completed!
After a lot of soul searching, I have rang work and said I was going to come back. Great they said. You're on nights and are not going to be moved. Back in the same place. I don't want to be there. Would I rather financial instability than going back? I really don't want to work there. Nothing has changed.
I feel as though I've sold my soul to the devil and Mephisto is warming up to Waltz with me.

Had a meetng with my Manager and HR, they still say the option is open to go back to work when my sick note runs out. I really don't want to work in that sort of environment, I'm sick and tired of abuse and the potential for abuse. With no recourse or redress, it's pretty crap really and I don't think I should have to face that on a daily basis. I want to jump ship but there is the question of the mortgage. Or is it a case of taking a leap of faith and gettting out of there and working the agency for a bit? Dilemma! He wants me to stay at work, to remain financially stable - he has got a good point there!
What they have offered me is what I asked for in the first place but was refused it. And that was before I Made the decision to leave. Swings and roundabouts.
If I think about it anymore at the moment my head will fall off! I've got a tension headache pending. I need to use at least an hour or two doing something mindless - definitley not Daytime TV and I doubt it very much if it will be house work, but you never know! hahahaha!
I'm still waiting for Divine Intervention, or is Devine Intervention waiting for me to see it's happening under my nose??!!

This afternoon, we went to Look At Chickens. Chickens that will live in the Garden and lay plenty of eggs. I think I shall be quite taken up with Chickens. He is currently building the Chicken House - a DesRes for Chickens, the Run got built over the weekend.
Am currently trying to dye Cotton yarn with food dye. It's taking so far, but then again it is still in the soaking in the dye bath stage.......
I'm slowly getting around to setting up CarpeDyem on Esty, and am finding numerous things to do instead of taking the Big Leap, like seeing if cotton yarn will dye, straightening my Room, looking at everything and seeing potential. I've done a List of Things To Do, and I might, just might be able to cross one or two things off.
