When I started my 7 weeks of full time work I knew it would mean less reading blogs and less posting…….but it wasn’t my intention to disappear altogether! But it seems that is what has happened over the past few weeks…..haven’t even had time to read other’s blogs! Work is good though – it’s the juggling fitting in my ‘usual jobs’ and Sewjourn and being a mum on top of this that is keeping me on my toes! Thanks to those lovely people that have emailed to see how I was travelling…….the answer is good (I think!)
Some really good things about the past couple of weeks have included:
- One of my best friends having a beautiful, healthy baby girl
- My Mum coming to help out, be chief cook, taxi driver, Book Week Costume coordinator, etc etc
- Having a great night at our school fundraiser last weekend
- Meeting lots of interesting people through work and getting to see how different pharmacies operate
- Earning some money!
But trying to keep on top of everything with Sewjourn has been hard over the past couple of weeks and let’s just say this week has proved to be the most challenging yet! Needless to say, going up to Lancefield to clean after work last night I was feeling quite disheartened. Driving into Sewjourn though (having not been there for a couple of weeks) and seeing the gorgeous daffodils flowering again, I realised how much I love the place and my mood lifted. Our original philosophy with Sewjourn still stands….’Relax, Create and Enjoy’…….our aim was to create a special place for small groups of friends to have ‘time out’. And I was reminded how many people have told me over the past year that this is exactly what they have done. Apart from feeling encouraged by this I also realised……..the last year! This weekend marks the first anniversary of Sewjourn opening! And what a fantastic year it has been. I have met so many amazing people and had lots and lots of fun along the way. So thank you to each and every one of you that has contributed to this journey…..your enthusiasm is a great encouragement.
And, yes of course we should celebrate with a giveaway! I haven’t worked out the final details yet but pop back over the weekend for more info……..
