Not about craft

November 1, 2012

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged something that wasn’t craft. The problem with time passing is that the more that passes the more you fear returning to the blog. It’s like when I’m running late for a meeting there is a part of me that thinks it might better to just not show up at all.

Naughty thought, so I’m ‘breaking the seal’, ‘ending the dry spell’, ‘breaking the fast’, pick your favorite metaphor.

I could blame being busy… actually, that’s quite legitimate.

I joined another committee (the Titahi Bay Village Plan Steering Group). Work is getting busier, I am finally being made permanent and will start teaching on Monday and am helping develop 4 courses, redeveloping two soon and managing the intake for our students.

My third part-time job, administrator for Imagination Doors is getting inundated with Xmas present requests (we have like 35 doors on order). Yes, I have a second part-time job but that’s been relatively quiet lately.

I’m still volunteering and oh yeah,

  • two kids
  • two dogs
  • two cats
  • plus fish

(The birds escaped… so they are super easy maintenance at the moment)

But it’s other things too. It’s kids birthday season, so every weekend means organising a kid’s present and going to a party. Some are fun, it basically means hanging out with my mates, but some mean socialising with people I don’t really know and I. just. can’t. be. bothered some days.

And Xmas is just around the corner. I’m writing lists and checking them twice. When you like hand-making presents, you have to plan ahead.

So crafting is a relaxing activity and so therefore I have stuff to blog about. I then link to Pinterest and people have started following me. I giggle when I think about how the Pinterest based blog followers will get a wee shock when I do my next big feminist rant! You can follow me on Pinterest if you like.

I have actually been writing. I’ve written three pieces for the final issue of Muse Feminist Magazine. I’ll post them here once it’s been published.

Plus I have too many ideas, so I thought I would put them out to you and list the ideas. You tell me which one you would like me to blog about:

1. Challenges of being an atheist parent

2. What I like/don’t like about the show ‘Misfits’

3. What I like/don’t like about the show ‘Embarrassing Bodies’

4. Next generation and Star Wars

5. Films I want my girls to see and why

6. Feminism and how I’m doing it wrong

7. Confession: I’ve never watched Buffy, but I’m going to!

So comment away and help me focus!
