A New Start

Okay, where to begin? Well, my redundancy is only 5 months away now and hopefully it will herald the beginning of a new way of living for me.  A while ago I realised that I'd become bogged down with work and personal responsibilities and the life I was living wasn't making me very happy.  I wanted to slow down and re-think what was important to me.  I love to create - making stuff thrills me - and I hate waste, the throwaway culture of always having to have something new.  So, this will be my diary of how I change my life around, create more of what I need myself and have fun doing it!  I only intend to work part time in the future so my income will be low, but I'll have much more time to pursue my hobbies, work on making myself as self sufficient as I can, and just being able to slow down and enjoy some new experiences.

Life is looking up!
