Packing up for a fresh start

It’s all change for me this week!

Tomorrow, I’m heading over the Severn Bridge for my new home in Guildford, Surrey, where I’ll be starting work at my first ever job. I knew when I finished my postgraduate degree it would be very likely I’d end up in England, but now moving day is almost here, I can hardly believe I’m leaving the green, green grass of home to take my first step on the career ladder.

I’ll be working on a local paper based in Guildford and I’m lucky enough to already have a couple of friends working in the same office, so it won’t be as scary a move as it could be. Since the end of June, I’ve been at a bit of a loose end and I’m relieved things are beginning to fall into place. After all, there’s little time for sewing when you’re travelling here, there and everywhere for job interviews.

The plan is to get stuck in and settled in my new home and, of course, I won’t be letting up on the pledge anytime soon. From what I hear, the patch I’ll be covering has plenty in the way of knitters and crafters – I’m sure I’ll fit in nicely!

So you all know – I haven’t given up on the scrubs dress and I’m making sure it gets a decent transformation. I’ll be leaving my Dad’s fancy camera behind (sad face), but once I sort out my own, I’ll make sure you all get a peek of what I’ve been working on.

What’s new with you guys? Do tell!

    Congrats on the new job hon!!! I’m so pleased for you. That’s nice that you already know some people there, it’ll make the transition all the more pleasant and easy. Brighton is very easy to get to from Guildford, BTW! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink… xxx
