Strange wicker owl thingy says SORT YOUR LIFE OUT.
Not you personally, me. I’ve been in limbo since the end of August – I didn’t have a break after the fringe madness, just went straight back to full time temping, waiting for a reprieve that I recently discovered isn’t going to come.
So I spoke to the wicker owl thingy and it told me to stop whinging and get on with it. Some people, it pointed out, in a voice suspiciously like my sister’s, have no legs – and they get on with things just fine. It is time to sort out the flat (which is a tip), schedule some blog posts, get some scran* in and finish editing some of these freakin’ books. What’s more, it’s time to do it all flexibly, around the edges of life and without a set routine, because the perfect part time job is clearly not forthcoming and I’m likely going to temp till I die, sometimes full time and sometimes not. I must therefore be flexible, like some sort of female google CEO. I’ve started by writing this post on my phone moments before leaving the house.
Happy Monday to you all. I am off to work.
*scran means food, non-Scottish readers

I FEEL YOUR PAIN! Good on you for making positive steps forward. I’m still stuck in crazy-too-much-to-do limbo land.
P.S. Thanks for the “scran” definition. Heading to Edinburgh next August and need as much help as I can get interpreting that beautiful accent!

Hah, you can do it! To-do lists are key…
I’ll maybe do a post with helpful Scottish vocab for you at some point then 😉
