Of Embroidering, Knitting, Crocheting… and Working

yarn-2564556_1920

I really like my job. Some years ago I made a choice, and I really chose my job. I am a teacher. Before this, I had worked in two factories, in the export sales offices. Maybe I could have had the chance to climb the ladder, or not because I am always a woman and, all around the world, women seem to always have to make a choice: family or a really good paid job. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about it now.

The fact is: I would like to push the ‘pause’ button. Unfortunately, I have so many hobbies and I miss them. I like embroidering, knitting, crocheting, reading books… Maybe I was born in a different era and then I was ‘time moved’ to 2018. When I was in the High school, I was considered a little bit strange, due to the fact that I so much loved those (so considered) feminine/ladies’ pastimes. wool-480550_1920

To be honest, I used to so envy those women that could keep on knitting or everything else. And this because of their wealthy conditions, mainly. They don’t need to go to work, they have the possibility to stay home and knit and read as much as they want.

But now, I wouldn’t really give up my job or my personal independence, even if I don’t earn a huge salary. Only, I am so tired, that I would like a year off, where I could devote my time to my hobbies. It would be so nice to wake up in the morning and knit. The next morning create a new curtain. And so on. But with the certainty that after book-1760998_1280one year of rest I would go back to my beloved working world.

I am only a bit tired.

Outdoors ~ Just An Hour ~ Just For Me

After so many months passed indoors, what is better than going outdoors for a walk (and a cup of coffee) to the local Park? This is exactly what I did. It was my way to take some time for myself and celebrate the 8th March and all women. I took my time,  sipped my coffee, closed my eyes, enjoyed the sun heat kissing my cheeks, and relaxed. It was just an hour, just me, before going back to reality but it was enough for me to feel better.

I believe we women all deserve some time for ourselves.

PS curiosity: I sat on an odd chair, where a nest with eggs is painted. And a warning: don’t break my Eggs!
