Yay! I’m finally back – I forgot my password, so couldn’t log on!!
So, things have been uber-quiet anyway with everyone on their summer holidays (I’m on mine right now! Lol), and now with everyone concentrating on back-to-school I’m going to spend the next week or so doing the dreaded bookkeeping for the accountants…zzzzzzzzzz…..
I have an interview next week for a second job to keep the pennies rolling in, but it’s in a craft shop so I’ll be in my element anyway if I get it 🙂
Then I guess I will be gearing up for Christmas (eeeek!) booking onto Xmas craft fairs and starting to make my handmade Xmas goodies…where has this year gone!!
Speaking of which, I have been in the shop at Clay Cross for a whole year now (wowsers!!) Happy Birthday to me. I am disappointed, although not really surprised, that there are some people I know who still haven’t managed to come and see the shop yet, never mind support my business by buying anything from me – but I’m quickly realising that you just have to look after number one, as no one else really cares one way or the other.
Longer post next week when I’m avoiding doing my paperworkback at work!!
Mainly about my business www.beaubabyboutique.co.uk, but I’ll occasionally drop in some other interesting stuff too, and no doubt share my crazy dog’s antics and our trips to VW shows in our camper vans as well.
Lets start with a little introduction. My name is Sarah, I’m 36 and live near Chesterfield, Derbyshire (UK) with my 2 cats, my dog, and more recently my boyfriend has joined the madhouse too! I was widowed in 2009 after less than 6 months of marriage, so no kids – but a cracking little nephew and 2 gorgeous baby niece-in-laws, who it is always lovely to give back spend time with.
I have always been a creative person, enjoying art and textiles at school, photography at college in Media studies, but unfortunately failing to make the grade for Uni. After a few years in ‘normal’ jobs, I retrained to be a florist in my late 20’s which led to me running my own business at my shop in Chesterfield – which is by no means as easy as everyone thinks it is, therefore I sold it on in 2011 to concentrate back on the arty/crafty, designer/maker, rather less pressured way of life whilst I was still on my healing journey.
I found a fantastic UK charity WAY – Widowed And Young which helped me through my darkest days of bereavement enormously, and I now help them back by being part of the committee, in charge of social media, and a local area contact arranging trips and get togethers with other young widows in our area.
So, I guess until I find out more about how blogging works, that should be it for now! Thanks for reading 🙂
