Me on Monday - melancholy

waiting for breakfast at Daisy's

trying not to be caught with my mouth wide open as I laugh
It's been a stay at home, knitting for me and computer games for Mr M sort of a time, interspersed with a back of the mind niggle about Youngest Son starting a new job on Sunday night and the funeral looming at us on Tuesday.
I ordered the prints of some of the pictures from our Devon break and they came this morning so I was able to spend half an hour in the craft room doing a couple of the pages. These two pictures made me smile so I thought they would make you smile too.
Youngest Son had been harrassed at work and his life was becoming quite miserable because of the person doing the harrassing being in a position of power. Then he went for an interview with another company - he drives articulated HG vehicles and with the new regulations that make drivers jump through even more hoops to be legal his qualifications are rarer than hen's teeth. He got the job and we took great delight in composing his letter of resignation and managed to fit in such phrases as "Continual harrassment" and "Incessant bullying" and "After consultation". He thinks he will like the new job even if his first shift was a round trip of Cornwall.
My knitting is a baby blanket and it will be winging its way to the Donkey Sanctuary to be sold in their visitor centre. Next I have a cowl with ears to make for a granddaughter or two and some dragon scale slippers too.
I will start them after tomorrow

My thanks to Sian at FromHighInTheSky for inventing this idea it keeps me blogging.

Sorry to hear about the difficulties for the Youngest Son, and well done on finding new work - not easy ... And yes, your photos did make me smile! Best wishes for a productive week ahead.

Do tell (and show) us what you are knitting!!! I do hope things improve for your son.The workplace is stressful enough without someone like that around.

I was thinking about you yesterday as I was writing my post, wondering how you were all doing. I'll be thinking about you again today.

I'm glad there's some happy news on the job front. Best of luck to him in the new place!

Giving you a heartfelt wave

hope your son's new job is going well - bullying is awful and still not taken seriously enough by employers. Your photos did make me smile. Have a good week

I do hope the first week in the new job has gone well. You worry about your children no matter how old they are.

Congratulations on him finding a new job. Hope he's finding it a lot better. Dragon scale slippers sound interesting.
