Already Easter and some small, yet major changes


First Monday of April, and I returned to my desk at the office looking like this : 


A small, yet major change in my work life has happened - I've become a permanent employee at the office, instead of a hired-in person on a limited contract. Basically, it's the same job, just more permanent, more secure.  


The firm that I was hired out from, sent me these gorgeous (and very nice-smelling) flowers as a "Thank you" for the years I've worked for them.

Easter is upon us, and we've stayed in the city this year too. It's quiet and nice - although P thinks it is completely horrible... all of his friends are away, and won' be back until tomorrow evening (Sunday).. 

I'd bought a pattern for a Easter bunny-pouch some time last year, and decided to try to make one. Well, I got hooked, completely! I ended up making 14 of them (yikes!) and am still not tired of making them. I ended up filling some of them with chocolates and giving them away. Three of them came to the office with me - and I got some nice snaps on Snapchat from a couple of the very happy girls.



Our boss was responsible for the Friday cake (cake, ice cream, or something to make Friday afternoon a little more cozy) the last Friday before Easter week started, and he ventured out and bought back a whole pile of candy. No-one protested, I mean, who says "no" to candy? *yum*


I'm currently working on a couple of projects - three knitting (one that is an everlasting one, but without a deadline - and one that might end up frogged... still doing a bit of consideration about it, though), a stitchery - and a secret one. Which will probably not be revealed until some time in August. *grins*


The mailman delivered two Homespun magazines to me last week. I thought it had been a while since I last received an issue, but it didn't occur to me that I had missed an issue until it arrived. Oh well, more to read and look at. :) 

***
I was thinking of doing a give-away soon, but am not quite sure if I have many (any?) readers left. Are there any readers left in the blogiverse these days or have everyone moved over to Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest? I dabble a little over at Instagram, and have a list or two at Pinterest, but blogging is what I'd like to do - more of and better.

Congratulations on the permanent job ! The flowers are beautiful, too :) Yes, I think you have followers ... me, for one. I have a blog, but don't post very often, so I feel funny about leaving comments on the blogs I read. You are on my reading list, so I always get your new postings, and I do enjoy them. I think I came to your blog because I first read Hanne's blog. Love the little bunny bag, by the way!
