Blink and now it's the summer holidays. My thirteen year old was mulling around the house this morning, so I set her to work doing my expenses. I'm not sure she was prepared for how many months needed totalling up. But... she's got great attention for detail so ended up doing a really good job. As I told her, I'd only have to pay someone else to do it so why not pay her? Her older brother has also helped over the years. I had a list of things to do this morning and to my surprise sped through them...

That's what I've dropped on my desk and on the floor! I really shouldn't eat my lunch at my desk. It's quietly peaceful today, getting on with a current Shopify site which will hopefully go live early next week, quoting on a second one for a Leicestershire based engineering firm and designing a range of possible social media posts for another client. My daughter has got to grips with her new learning book from school and I'm pleased her online classes now last till 1/2pm and not just the 2 hours of work she was doing. My son is having...
