Will it get better?

After another bad end to the week at work, i find myself wondering if i will ever settle into working in another school. I do know it takes time to find your feet in a new job, but at times i find myself doubting whether i can do it at all....but i just need to keep paying the mortgage, and poor old Kev has to put up with me being miserable. Maybe this time next week i'll feel better.

I found it hard to even get into crafting today, i felt so fed up, but after a shopping trip (not more stash?) i finally made some things:

1. Pressies for mothers day, not posting these yet as my MIL looks at my blog!

2. A scrapbook page following the mother theme, meeting the SLYMI challenge for the week, to use a punch. Kim sent me this photo about 18 months ago, and it's one of the few of me as a baby, i love my Mum in the photo, she's only 18, and looks so glamorous! I used the lovely Coredinations gemstones cardstock, like Bazzil bling and totally lovely!

3. Some cards using some old stash from the first Exhall crop.

I also got to play with my lovely new Prima stamps, only prob is i still haven't tracked down an acrylic block big enough for the huge swirl in the kit, so i need to keep shopping!

So crafting today has made me forget how awful work can be and sort of kept me sane, roll on Easter :(

A beautiful page Ann, the colours and patterns are so perfect for the vintage photo!
I do hope your working weeks get brighter Ann!

I love your work Anne, I check it often, those swirls are gorgeous!
I know what you mean about teaching, I was off with stress and now I VIEW IT SIMPLY AS A JOB!
It's not worth making yourself miserable over, unfortunately children are not like they used to be and paperwork is horrendous! You have my sympathy xxx Hugs xxx
