On the 25th of march I need to be out of my house. So far I have done no packing whatsoever.
But most importantly I have no idea where I will be moving to!

St George's Church Surrey

Since my last post about made it sound like I was becoming a nun I thought I should elaborate a bit. Also I added some pictures of the church that I found on the net.

The church was built around 1540 and it's looked after by the Churches Conservation Trust and supported locally by the Friends of St. George’s Church.
I don't know how long they have been doing it for but during the summer months they use the church as as workshop for artist, they also do open days with the artists and the public doing art together.

I've applied for this year, 3 months with my own workshop and doing regular open days for the public!

It would be great fun if I got it, thou there is a couple of things I need to see if I can get past first. For example I don't know if they offer any living arrangements or if they could help me find some.

Also most importantly I don't know if they will pick me, I thought I would know by now but so far nothing. If I haven't heard anything by Wednesday next week I will just assume I wasn't picked. Thou I would be quite miffed if they don't at least send me an email telling me I wasn't picked.

I found out about the residency thru Benchpeg
Also the church has a website

My computer has a virus!
A big evil wont let me do anything kind of virus. Stayed up late last night trying to get rid of it and I definitely seem to have done something but it's still there, lurking...
I can tell by the fact that something still don't work, thou other bits that wasn't working now are.
Hopefully another bot of virus detection programs tonight will fix it, but I really hope it hasn't got as bad as it was yesterday because it was trying to block all my virus programs from running and wouldn't let me download any.
I have sooo much to do but can't do anything until virus is gone. If I don't fix the computer tonight I will call some of my computer geek friends and beg for help, because not being able to check my email is murder! And the only reason I can do this blog is because I am posting on my lunch break. Sadly work computer wont let me check my mail thou.

And my big thing was...

I have applied for a 3 month residency as St George's Church in Surrey.
I have no idea if I will get it, but thought I should share anyway.
I do hope I get it because it would be fun if I did. Fun, exciting and useful. 3 months just working on my jewellery! What could be better :-)

And if I don't get it that's fine to, because atleast I tried.

Anything you can do I can do better...

I can do anything better then you!

When I grew up I was a typical girl. Scared of spiders and the dark and wouldn't touch anything slimy. As time when I grew up realising being feeble didn't suit me and that I hated the idea of not being able to do everything a guy could. So now at the tender age of 28 I'm reflecting on the last 15 years or so, realising I did well!
I can fix things that break, I know what the off side rule is even thou I hate football, I can change beer barrels and anything a guy can manege to carry I can carry, I can change the tyre on a car even thou I can't drive and if someone tries starting a fight I wont back down.
So I actually did what I set out to do! And I am really happy about this, being able to match any guy is a great feeling.
Only thing is I suddenly realised, me trying to be capable in everything a guy can do meant it left some holes on the female front.
For example I can't suffer a pair of uncomfortable shoes for very long even if they are really pretty, I can't iron to save my life and don't even get me started on sowing.

Oh, and I hate shopping for clothes...yeah I know, I am a disgrace to female kind everywhere ;-)
