Spring Has Sprung

 Spring has Sprung...
and it's about time...
I have come to think that winter is all very well and good
if you want to wear that really trendy coat or 
your favorite woolly tights and knee high boots
but really freezing is not cool...

 

The sun has come out thou...
and I can almost think straight again...
I can wear something other than grey
and I can actually breath 
without the 5 layers of clothes on...


I can roam around and pick blossoms where I fancy...
and that includes the next door neighbours yard...
I am only Ummm borrowing a few branches...
Plus they have very sharp thorns on these so I think that makes it alright
I am sure that they wouldn't want a yard full of thorny blossoms...
well that's what I am telling myself anyway...
(no truly it's ok as no one is living there at the moment)

Now I must tell why I have been rather absent of late...
Much to do and no time to spare...

I have enrolled in TAFE online...
Yes back to school for me...
I am going to try and get my HSC...
I say try because seeing the enormous amount of files
that they have sent me is very daunting...
and Maths is about the only thing that I can seem to recognize...

I hope that one day with my HSC in hand I can hold my head high
and go to University...
For you see all of these years it has weighed very heavily on me 
that I never finished school...
Very heavily indeed...
Silly I know, but it's always been very real in my mind...
I need that piece of paper!!!

apart from all that my dears I have been writting patterns and doing 
"TOP SECRET"
projects...
Oh how I want to tell...
I can't... but I can say they will be just lovely and pretty 
and will be in print...

And not forgetting the lovely comments on my last post...
Oh how I love pie even more now...
I will let every one know in my next post the lucky winner...
I am just reading though the pattern to make sure I haven't made any silly mistakes...
I do tend to do that...
So if you haven't left a comment you still have time
and I will be sure to pop it in the shop at the same time...
So till next post...
Enjoy the colors of spring
and the smell of fresh blossoms in the air...

Yay for Spring! It's my most favourite time of year! I am loving those blossoms!
Good luck with TAFE & getting your HSC. I'm sure you will do well.

How exciting that you're heading back to school. Education is certainly a wonderful thing.

Seems strange that you are getting ready for Spring, when Autumn is in the air over here in the UK. Woolies and boots have already had their first outing. Always exciting to get new qualifications under one's belt and to follow a dream. Good luck!

Congrats on your exciting news. Education is power. It is great to return to study as an adult, you can bypass most of the Bull S***T!

Allison said...

oh, good luck to you! and congrats on getting your patterns in print. lots of exciting things are going on with you!

Mistea said...

Enjoy the study, it is actually much easier as an adult because you have more life experiences to draw on.
Exciting new patterns - can't wait to see where these pop up.

Good on you for having a go as a "mature-aged student" Can't wait to see the photos (years down the track) with mortar board and gown

Michelle, i get so excited when people go back to school (i was a rebellious little miss and chucked in school at the end of 'form 5'). I went back eventually and loved every minute of it. I wish you loads of success and lots of brainy stuff to think about and enjoy! jx

Good on you and don't feel silly, there is nothing more empowering than doing something you always wanted to do!!! Glad spring is warming things up for you down there :-)

Lola Nova said...

Happy Spring to you dear Michelle! Enjoy, and I can't wait to see what you have been up to!

Hello Michelle!
Isn't it funny the way we build up our perceptions of people!? I imagined you were english, but NO! you too are experiencing spring as I am in NZ!
Fabulous, isn't it great? Spring is balm for the winter-wearly soul.
