Just a quickie... make that a long post!

Where has the time gone, sorry for the lack of blogging but I am currently suffering from TO DO LIST overload, I have got so many things going on at the moment that blogging was one of the things that didn't need urgent attention. In fact the thought of what I still need to do fills me with dread. One downside of running a business is the constant need to plan ahead, so at the moment I'm currently in the process of updating the website, whilst trying to get my head around the stock for Christmas... Yes I know but within the next few weeks I will be receiving all of the winter and Christmas stock that I have ordered which will then need to be photographed.

I have so many things I want to write about but unfortunately I have not yet got around to photographing the things I want to show you... I have found some fantastic things at our local car boot recently so have plenty to show you but I simply cant muster up the creative energy to take photographs that will do them justice. On a good note though I have currently been pouring all of the time I normally spend blogging into being CREATIVE! I have been having a fantastic time making lots of things for the business, they have been planned for ages. I'm on such a roll at the moment that I'm a little reluctant to use the computer (strange but true for once) I have put it down to having a new sewing machine, I have got so many ideas emerging that I just go with the flow and create. I'm really pleased with what I have made so far in fact once I finish this post I will be off to the sewing room to do yet more creating.

On a personal note, my little girl had her first visit to nursery this week, I was so anxious yet happy for her, this is probably to do with the fact that it is her first step onto the whole 'going to school' ladder, growing up etc, I just don't know where the time has gone. Fortunately we are able to stay with her while she has her visits (another one on Monday.) This has helped immensely, she has been so eager to start nursery but was very shy when we first arrived and for the initial 10 minutes was rather unsettled, once she had found her feet there was no stopping her, in fact Jeremy and I were told to stand over there ( talking to the Nursery staff prior) as she was busy socialising and finding her feet :) I felt so happy and proud! (she reacted just how I had expected her to.) I just hope that when we take her for her first proper day next Friday she will be able to settle in and hopefully not have any tears. Jeremy has been great and has arranged to start that morning later so we can take her together.. I know I will be in tears as soon as I get home, make that the car.

On a blogging note, the lovely Jessica has nominated me for this...

Thanks for the award Faye, it's very sweet of you. I know exactly how you feel about your daughter going to nursery. I hated it when my 1st child started, it's definitely easier 2nd time around! You will enjoy some time to yourself, and seeing her little face again when you pick her up will be a reward in itself!
