It's like that old feeling you'd get when you'd split up with your boyfriend, you wake up, open your eyes, yawn, stretch and then it's the sudden realisation that your life has changed, that sick sinking feeling. I remember that feeling well, several times over. I remember that feeling when I miscarried twice, although that was a deeply rooted ache, nevertheless it would hit me each morning I woke up for many months. I remember that feeling during the recession when my old business started to crumble and then again when we were bought out and taken over and I...

Nope, I'm not going to talk about the C Virus at all in my blog this week. Instead, I have some new business cards, it's funny I've put of designing them and having them printed for ages and went back to using some old ones from about 6 years ago as I had a box left. Yes I'm all for branding of course I am but I do like to re-invent my business cards from time to time.

I was slightly caught out. Finished working at 9pm on Tuesday and have been starting at 7-7.30 a couple of mornings.

It's been a different week, but then all my weeks are different. I guess I've just caught up from the slight disruption of Christmas and got back into the flow as too have our clients. It's been quite a calm week. Clients have been sending me new images and content unprompted which is always lovely! Further on with a new website, and the opportunity to use a paid Shopify theme is great as usually we only use the free themes, as most of our websites are more 'affordable' and tight on budget. It's been wonderful to explore some different themes and work...
