Yep, jaded seems like a good word! bored or lacking enthusiasm, typically after having had too much of something. "meals to tempt the most jaded appetites" Although not bored but yes lacking some enthusiasm after having a full on weekend. Having to 'sit' at my desk and concentrate and be creative is not something I ever dread but this morning after the long bank holiday, I'm not sure where to start, although start I certainly have. My diary has a list of about 19 things to get done or started today and by 11.30 I've ticked off 5, so I've got...

I think I'm over yesterday, snow, sun, rain, wind, snow, sun... Beautiful walk this morning in the chilly sunshine, always a good start to the day.

My desk has lime green post it notes all over it as my diary just doesn't seem to be enough at the moment. From family passport reminders to adding a favicon to a new website and reminders to collect my daughter from school. Unlike me I am working on 3 Shopify websites at the moment, I usually limit myself to one at a time, but all three have been delayed by about a year with all the businesses getting caught up in covid, making swift changes and eventually changing their plans. With a fourth one in the wings. I'm 2/3 of...

I'm a bit over due writing a blog! so here goes. I feel like I've hit the frosty ground running this year which I'm really pleased about because this time last year was very challenging. Mainly because my elderly parents moved house, not only moving them was exhausting but the emotional side of getting them in their new home, settled and then realising I somehow needed to run my business around them which I now feel I have a little more finely tuned, whereas last year I'm not sure I coped all that well. My son and husband both had...
