As far as stitching is concerned, I haven't been as enthusiastic as normal. I did stitch some things:
LHN Needlebook and...
LHN Scissor Keep, stitched as a commission...
Lanarte Pecking Order - my completed RR piece
Margaret Sherry's Calendar Cats - November, stitched for Tina's RR
Mirabilia's Fairy Moon, stitched as part of a Mirabilia RR
Mirabilia's Scent of Roses, stitched as part of a Mirabilia RR
Mirabilia's Maidens of the Seasons (Spring), stitched as part of a Mirabilia RR
I've obviously spent a lot of time on Round Robins and commission pieces! However, I picked up L&L's "In the Arms of an Angel" again yesterday, with the intention of finishing her by next weekend...

As far as other things are concerned, well...I'm no longer working as a teacher. I lost my job last summer, due to budget cuts, and decided to get out of teaching while I had the opportunity. The amount of pressure, stress and criticism isn't worth it - my health comes first! I did a bit of supply teaching from September 'til the beginning of December, when I was given an administration post at a company that provides work-based qualifications, apprenticeships, work experience, and school-based sessions on employability skills. I love working there, even though I have taken a massive pay cut, and I am going to be extending my work to other aspects as time goes on.
The only problem is that I broke my ankle two weeks ago, whilst walking along the street! I stumbled, and felt my foot going too far out. I went to A&E, where they told me it was broken...This has resulted in at least 3 weeks off work, a lovely pot on my leg:
