I still feel short of time, and the weeks are flying by so fast, but I feel a bit better about it this week.
One of the biggest guzzlers of my time is hand painting personalised gifts to order. I do enjoy all the making, but it does kind of get in the way of doing other things and it's incredibly tying making pretty much everything to order (not to mention the packing and posting being so time consuming and slightly boring!)...
... so I've made a decision that in January I'll explore other avenues. There's no way of doing it before January, because we are of course coming up to the busiest period of the year for gifts. But just having made that decision makes me feel better! It's going to have to be a very careful balancing act, because the painted gifts are my main source of income.
It's quite a short post from me this week - I'm off to visit Dad in his care home now. He's only there for another week, and once he comes home we'll have to see how everyone manages. The thing is, he's much safer in a more secure environment because he's most definitely a wanderer.
The sad thing is, he's always trying to get somewhere that doesn't exist any more - not far away physically, but the place he want to be only exists somewhere in the 1930's - which unless we can conjure up a Tardis from somewhere, is never going to happen. But wouldn't it be lovely if we could?
