The crisis continues.

Not sure where or when this crisis (if that is what it is) is going to end. This week I have signed up to start an Internet course which will leave me as a qualified and registered bookkeeper. I have done bookkeeping extensively in the past but I really need a formal qualification which will allow me to go freelance (sitting still in an office doesn't float my boat). The long term plan being that I will be able to do this from home if I ever can't go out to work but in the mean time I will be able to bring in a little bit of extra money doing something that I find easy and enjoyable. What can I say I like money and I love everything having it's place and being neat in little columns. It's a pity I can't say the same about my house this week as it is a complete pig sty mainly due to the fact that I am having a HUGE clear out and move around. The playroom is now going to be the dining room and the workroom is going to be a family room so it's a bit like musical rooms at the moment. Then of course I will have to decorate and get new curtains and rugs and a sofa and cushions and ...........
Today's word over at HSMS is purple. I don't seem to be very motivated to get my camera out at the moment which could very well be due to the rain and crap lighting we have so I am afraid a shot I took a couple of months ago will just have to do today.

*Eleanor I will put the recipe up for the blackberry and apple cake in the next couple of days on my "Not a size Zero" blog. *

Stunningly beautiful shot. Good luck with the course.

Great photo - love the shallow depth of focus that you have got - but flowers are always going to be up my street!

Can't wait to hear more about the course, and about the rooms - are you going to do before and after shots?

That is a beautiful color of purple and flower! Trying to visit everyone before I need a nap or the puppy destroys the house!

Beautiful little flower! Good luck with the bookkeeping course!

You mentioned the course when we met. Think it's an excellent idea.

I have been sorting out for about . . . oh seven or eight years I think! My house seems to be in a state of being sorted out. At the moment it is Joshua's room then on to the bathroom which is to be re-fitted! Oh Joy!

Superb shot, detail is excellent.

Bye . . . Sue and it's still bloody raining here too!
