05Aug The absent blogger
I have been extremely slack in the blogging department... in the crafting department too come to that. Life has got in the way too often in the last few weeks. Still, I have been off work for the last 2 weeks which has been fab.....four more weeks to go....Yay!! Working in a school does have some benefits! Have been trying to catch up on all my housework, but with 2 teens in the house it seems as soon as I finish one room and start on another, the first room is trashed again....Brings to mind a plaque I've painted and must photograph.... it quotes 'Doing the housework with kids in the house is like trying to shovel snow in a blizzard!'
A really good June sales wise gave way to seriously slow July....Am hoping that it's just this time of year and not an indication of a downturn in my little business....I am struggling to get visitors to my site and I do know I have to pull my finger out and get promoting!! So I guess I've been slack there too! Someone needs to give me a good kick I think!!
Away from crafting, who's been watching the Olympics?? I have been blown away by team GB!! I think the atmosphere being created by the games is amazing, and despite pictures of empty seats in stadiums, the footage of people gathering in Hyde Park and other venues to watch the action on big screen is incredible! I feel it's really bought the country together, especially when you think of the mood of much of the country this time last year with all the riots. I for one am loving it all!!! Huge congratulations to all the medal winners and to those who have given it their all.....after all you can't ask for more than that!
Am glad to be back blogging, if you see me miss a week please feel free to give a poke! Am now going to head over to Handmade Harbour to see what brilliant stuff everyone else has been up to!
Bye for now!
