Insta-garden


My new job is terrific. There is something to be said for going to work happy every day. I still experience little frustrations but on the whole, I feel content and happy and I come home the same way. I have another part-time job to as a Learning Technologist which is also great (not as good as my other job but pretty good). It does mean that I have a whole new schedule to live up to. The pace of learning is much greater in my new role which means that I am constantly having to learn new things to keep up with new media. I’m often on Instagram – so quick to post a photo but I do miss my blog and enjoy writing for it. Now I’m writing for a living, too, I have such a lot of pleasure in my week! It does mean that I’m very busy! So I took some time out this weekend and did some insta-gardening – I headed to a garden centre and bought lots of lovely plants already in flower and tidied up my front door area. I’ve already been complimented by my neighbour 🙂


My little kitten love keeps me on my toes. She is naughty, funny, loving, special. Tonight she clamped her jaws round my chicken baguette and tried to make off with it. She then stole the chicken breast I cooked for lunch tomorrow and she and Claude were eating it. It was churlish to scold them so they got a chicken dinner.

Please say hi. I’ve been missing you – I’m going to try a little to keep up with blogs. My next big work project is to do Google Analytics and Hootsuite online training which takes up a chunk of my evenings but I will keep trying to read and comment when I can. I’ve been working there almost 6 months and have loved every moment. I love the creativity and the projects. I read ‘What Colour is your parachute?‘ and this was one of the jobs that matched me. It makes me feel so good that I followed my dream.

  1. You are right – life is so much better when you enjoy your job! I’m glad to hear it.

  2. I have not been keeping up with blogs, but I am back in the swing a bit now. Congratulations on your new job. I know how much I loved teaching, and I looked forward to gong to work, except maybe for duty on the oval in a freezing cold day!! I love your Insta garden, and look at that kittens, what rummums they are. Oh, I am not good with the new media, so I am in awe of your fast learning skills!!!

  3. That’s wonderful! It makes such a difference when you love your job. The garden looks very pretty.
    I will have to look on instagram – it seems to be what bloggers do now.
    But keep posting!

  4. So glad to hear that you’re enjoying your new job! There are always those little frustrations – they just shouldn’t be more numerous than the good stuff. 🙂

  5. I’m so happy for you, Mrs.Pao.
    You are so energetic and full of hopes and dreams.
    I’ll try to get myself in shape again myself.
