Hi there! I am writing today's post with a huge grin on my face!
A few of you will know that I have a part-time job in a bakery. I started there 6 years ago, because it was a way of earning a bit of extra money without paying childcare costs: I finish there before Steve leaves for work. It's not a bad job - dead easy, no-stress etc, but it means a 5.30am start, and that is a killer!! And it doesn't get any easier - you don't get used to it, believe me! (Especially when you've been up creating until 10.30 at night and then the children wake up and so on and so on. I am always tired!)
But (and this is the good news) I am now in a position where I have enough regular orders coming in to be able to give the bakery job up - and my last day is tomorrow!! And that feels so good!
And in other news....I've signed up to be in the Not On The High Street Christmas catalogue, so I'm going to be making a lot of these! So I've introduced some in other colourways to ease the monotony!
Here's a sneak preview of a special Christmas one - this is just a prototype, I haven't decided on the fabric yet...
I thought I'd get Herbie to do some free advertising for me...
And look what I bought for my new room!
