Things I'm excited about; Fab-ruary 3

Posts like this are fun. I like a lot of stuff. I like movies, I like reading, I like travelling, I like cooking and crafting and keeping my house badly.

But what gets me excited?

Well.......
Peter Kneale Solicitor does. Having a husband who has been brave enough to set up on his own in a very cut throat business and is enjoying it, and being able to think about a career change before I'm 50 to work with him is exciting. Very. And terrifying as well. I've always been a teacher, and now I'm beginning to think about finding another path. It's like having a second chance and looking at an alternate universe, the one where I didn't go teaching but set off to study law instead (other options were physiotherapy or being an astronaut) and end up working as a personal injury lawyer. That's a lot less physically demanding than teaching, and not one I need to think of leaving when my knees give up.


And I can't wait to be his partner in business as well as life. Handsome hunk (to me) I love you x

  1. Good for you. I think it's never too late to learn something new. It's good for the mind, keeps you ticking over. I took on a Masters degree a few years ago and graduated last year - and in my forties, I was one of the youngest in my tutor group! xx

    1. I keep toying with the idea of doing a further degree.... but I need to get a better paid job (paralegal) to be able to afford the fees!
      What did you do a masters in?

    2. It's in Classical Studies. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time and the time was right for me to get on and do it. My dissertation was on the Romans in Warrington (Wilderspool) which I loved doing, and I even went into small daughter's school last year to talk about it - as you can imagine, their favourite picture was the one of Aphrodite's bottom which is all that's left of a small statue! xx

  3. Love your post! Brave man! Brave woman to consider changing careers....this is such an inspiring post! [I can see why you're doing the Leonie Dawson planner now - unsure if 'doing' is the right word, but it feels right?!]....wishing you all the best in your endeavours (I'm always so happy to read other people's stories about entrepreneurship)

    1. Thank you! At the best of times, it is a smooth running operation that inspires and fires us... at the worst moments (around September last year) it was, like, will we keep the house? The car? Our sanity?

  5. A brave move indeed, but if anyone can make it work it'll be you with your drive and determination.
    Good luck all round.

  6. Excellent. I hope it all works out. Hope your knees don't give up for many years to come. I think my right knee has finally given up!
