For the past few months all my creativity has been going into job applications.
Several options - all involving a change of direction.
So the good news is…… I got the job.
(the Plan A job)
Still at the museum, but working for the Events and Marketing department.
I'll be going through our events programme and looking at developing the informal education side of things. That means I get to look at all the fun stuff like farming, food, green woodworking, textiles etc. It's a big new challenge and a chance to get away from the grind of manual labour.
It will be my third career…
Does that make me a flake?
Or a polymath?
Or a flaky polymath….
It means I'll be hanging up my secateurs.
The end of the garden path is in sight…
I feel a blogging break is in order while I re-invent myself.
There's no road map, but that's exciting right?
(good scary rather than bad scary).
Thank you for all your support and companionship,
in the real world and the blogosphere.
Much love and happy holidays
The Grayson Perry scarf was a birthday present from Mr Asparagus Pea. It's designed as a road map for aspiring artists, based on the silk maps that were given to WWII pilots in case they were shot down behind enemy lines. The 'W Anchor' is his potter's mark, it always makes me giggle. Mr AP was so delighted because he bought it for me after we saw it at Tate Britain, which was long before I publicly announced that I was turning into Mr Perry!
