Hello folks. Gosh, it's been a while since I posted, hasn't it?

The new job is going pretty well - I'm really enjoying working in the shop, a lot more than I would have expected. Granted, my previous experience of working with the general public was coloured by shadowing check-in staff at Heathrow years ago, and that's not going to show the public in their best light. (Flying is stressful - some people are really horrible when they're stressed ...)

The only disadvantage was the lack of hours (and hence low pay) as it was averaging three days a month. Still, that may be changing, as the boss messaged me today to ask if I'd like to do more hours at home updating the website, which would be great, since it's really under-utilised atm and we could have a ton more stuff on there to sell. So yay!

I was at a meetup for dance teachers this week, and I've also committed to having two jewellery stalls at some upcoming dance events in December and January, which is great (especially as the stalls aren't going to cost me anything), but since most of my jewellery stock is in the wool shop right now, I'm going to have to get busy and make a ton of stuff :)

I've been vaguely thinking of starting up a bellydance class in the local area, but hadn't done too much more than think about it and mention it to a few people. Tonight I got a call from a local dance friend asking if I'd be interested in teaching her dance group, since my previous teacher switched to Pilates a while ago and there isn't a bellydance/raqs sharqi teacher in the area any more. Her group have been doing their own choreographies and rehearsing together, but without a teacher it's easy to lapse into bad habits and get stale, so they want someone to work on their technique and develop their dance. It sounds like a great opportunity - the venue, night of the week and the students are all in place, all I'd have to do is come up with stuff to teach them! We had a bit of a discussion and a six-week trial course of lessons sounds like a good idea. I'm going to meet up with them in a couple of weeks or so to discuss what they want to focus on.

Lots of stuff I want to do, and most of it has just dropped into my lap, huzzah! Let the universe know what you want and sometimes the opportunities will present themselves :)

I'm going to be ridiculously busy though!
