Soooo, there goes another week in the blinking of an eye - where does the time go? In some ways it seems like only yesterday that P set off to Hong Kong but it has in fact been almost ten weeks - yay, only another 14 weeks to go 'til we can see each other again - though in other ways it seems like forever since I watched his taxi disappearing down the hill. I think we're both still in a state of shock that we've actually had to be separated for six whole months in order for P to find a job in his field of expertise - really, when I take the time to think about, it seems unbelievably ridiculous - and unfair - that we've ended up in this situation. But there we go, it is how it is and we're both trying to make the best of the situation.
Anyway, I've been keeping myself busy making some cards for the 'Travelling Flea Market' in a few weeks time. I must say, putting the cards into cellophane envelopes makes them look an awful lot more professional.
I went to a local table top sale on Saturday and found quite a few nice bits and bobs, including a rather pretty Paperchase laptop case for £2.00. I would like to keep it for myself but as I never take my laptop anywhere outside of the house it'll no doubt end up on ebay. Despite the lack of boot sales at this time of year (and in this area), I've managed to keep finding reasonable items for reselling on ebay - which is good.
One of my best sellers recently was this vintage gent's Tootal dressing gown which I found at the local Sally Army charity shop. Unusually for this type of dressing gown it was pure cotton which may be one of the reasons why it sold so well.
So I'm trying to pass the time as usefully as possible and, luckily for me, it does seem to be passing pretty quickly. Still no reply to my job application ten days ago - why am I not surprised! - so I may put a 'work wanted' ad on Gumtree and see if anything comes from that. If I manage to get some paid work, hopefully the next 14 weeks will pass even more quickly.
