Well – it is official. The job I am headed to is co-located with the Royal Military College at Sandhurst. Located in Camberley, I will be 50 km outside of London off the M3.

Negotiating on a reporting date, but Mid January 2008 at the latest.

This is really going to make a mess of my planned knitting.

Otherwise, I have finally gotten back to Ravelry since I have not updated my projects since August.

Followed by the matter of the youngest now taking ill.

Enough, wouldn’t you say?

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    ugh! And I was stressed about moving a short distance! You have quite a bit of change in your future. I wonder if it is harder or easier when the kids are older?

    Good luck!

    Hi Holly,

    I’m Bea from bea-blacksheep. I am trying to track down a Holly that participated in a contest that I was having. She has a blogger id and three knit-a-long’s listed. I got your website from there. Would you happen to be the right person?

    Cheers and happy knitting to you!

  4. Holly, that part of England isn’t at all far from Ireland. We can meet up and that would be one huge positive thing about your job move! (Other than it being exciting anyway – new places, new people…)

    Hey it’s FUN living on the western edge of Europe!

    Glad to hear you took the job in the UK. To hot to knit in Iraq.
