My absence from blogging or commenting might give you a clue to the sort of 2 weeks I've had. There has been no crafting, no relaxing, in fact, nothing at all except working. I've been trying to get my head around being in a lab 9-5 during the day, then coming home and working 5:30-10 every night on my dissertation. And along with that, I've been trying to sort out the financial mess the last President left my trampoline club in, encourage new members to join the club, and trying to get my deposit back from our landlords from last year. And on top of all that, all the work I did in the lab last week was a total failure, so I've had to start again from scratch with temperamental machines and a -80°C (that's -112F) freezer that I can't find anything in and burns me every time I put my hand in it.
But then, I got the most amazing package in the post yesterday.
Napiligal's Blog after I complained to her how hard it is to get sock yarn where I live. And it's beautiful. It's hand dyed from Baywood Yarns in California and it is in my all time favourite colours (how did she know?).
So I'm incredibly grateful, as she posted it all the way from the states for me, and it really brightened up my week. I'm going to pass on the RAK, and hopefully give someone else the same warm, fuzzy feeling I got when I opened this.
