I did want to write a whole post on my plans for the year, back at the beginning of January. I'd worked on a little post it note, carefully bullet pointing my plan for world domination... but it's now the 21st of January and I still haven't gotten as far as blogging it! That's not a great start!!
So what's been holding me back? Well, a combination of things... firstly I have been super busy in the shops, which is thankfully a wonderful thing. So thank you for your wonderful support! Secondly, I've been working on the eshop, over on my main website... it's taking longer than I had hoped, partly because I am so busy and partly because there are always teething problems when you are working with a new system.
But, I guess what has mostly been keeping me preoccupied is the sence of limbo in my personal life... we moved down from Devon back in May, as you know. This was a big step towards our dream and something we had been on 'hold' with for a number of years. However, the step was never complete... we knew it wouldn't be... Darrin got his transfer and we upped sticks as quickly as possible into a rented place, so that we could be together. It wasn't ideal, but at least a step closer to our dream. It's now January and we're still here! Don't get me wrong, this isn't the worst place in the world and I probably wouldn't be so distracted by it, but at the same time the business has dramatically changed and we are back to 'bulging at the seams' again... sitting next to boxes of stock, while you eat your tea isn't ideal and neither is waking up to a few boxes that have now crept into the corner of the bedroom... I had promised to keep it all in the spare room, it just doesn't fit. I've also found that while I never switch off, Darrin is also quickly turning to the dark side... not only does he help put in his spare time, but he's always talking and thinking about the business... while that's good (a supportive partner is a truely great thing), it does mean that Sara's Texture Crafts is now a 24/7 thing! This is becoming a bit of an unhealthy issue!!
So what can we do? Well, I've tried repacking stock, but it simply won't all go in the spare room... so there's no hope of closing the door on it at 5:30. So I guess there's no other thing for it... to get back any semblance of sanity and to be able to plan my working time and my family time better, I think we need to move!
