Save for a month and a half last spring, I have not worked full-time since August 2009. For the record, returning to full-time work kind of sucks. I mean, money is nice. Paying bills is nice. Showering every morning and leaving the house with a sense of purpose is nice.Working? Not so much.
It's nothing against this specific job or my current work place, it's just work in general. Why couldn't I have been born into a titled Victorian family? Or be a lady of the court during the Tudor reign? Or waxed poetic about the plight of the plebs while lounging on a bed of pillows in a lavish Roman villa? In short, why couldn't I have been born ludicrously privileged and ridiculously wealthy? Is that too much to ask for? For the record, I would kick ass at telling my servants what to do. I'm very good at telling other people what to do. It's like I was meant to be a socialite from a bygone era. (Not one from this era because apparently I enjoying wearing too many layers of clothes for that role.)
Of course, work is only a small reason I've been absent around these parts. Another reason is Downton Abbey which I kept hearing people talk about and finally decided to watch. Um, yeah. There's nothing I can really add to the reviews and ideas already tumbling around the Internet except to say 'watch it and thank me later'.
I've also been working on a few crafting projects which may or may not see the light of day on this blog. Mostly, this depends on whether or not I fork out for a new camera in the near future. It's really difficult to show the Internets your crafting project when you don't have a camera. Also, I'm cheap so I don't even have a decent camera phone to take pictures with.
If I was independently wealthy, I'd have you all around for tea with little sandwiches while I show you my craft projects in person. *sigh*
