How Things Do Change

Well, I survived it - my first morning back at work after five months on sick leave! I am only doing mornings for now, a phased return the doc calls it, and that's enough - I left just before lunch feeling absolutely shattered, but not so shattered that I wasn't able to have a little play this afternoon!

It was like starting a new job completely - couldn't remember how the phone system worked (to be fair, it had only been in place for about a month before I went off), couldn't remember my password to log on to the network, couldn't find my mouse or wastepaper bin and, most importantly, I couldn't find my coffee mug coaster - so I spent this afternoon making a new one .....

This adorable little fella is called "Sensible Squirrel" (guess I'm not related to him then) from the Messy Rabbit range of stamps from Joanna Sheen. The papers are also Joanna Sheen though not sure from what collection as they've been kicking about for ages. The coaster itself I picked up from a cross stitch show about five years ago (see, typical squirrel, hoards everything)!

Well, I think I'm going to try him for size before I take him to work. Now, where's the kettle .... ?
