Hello again, last week I started this blog with ‘Does anyone know what day it is?’
I have to say, even though I set up a good routine last week, I still found it hard to follow what day it was. However, after having a very chilled out weekend at home I am ready for this week ahead.
Our morning school routine worked well so we have decided to stick with it. We did four mornings of short class sessions which were broken up with virtual music lessons plus the girls wanted to learn how to take videos in case they ever have their own you tube channel. Obviously, I hadn’t got a clue but we had so much fun doing it and it only took 15mins out of our day. So, I think we will try and do a bit more on that this week. On the fifth day we took a nature walk and did a little baking, so it was all fun. We are also spending break times out in the garden while there is not rain, we are doing a skipping challenge and tomorrow we hopefully will have an indo board to we are super excited about trying it out!
Of course I needed to do some work, so I get two hours in my studio while they do music practice, one chore and any homework (they are asking for it lol). I found that last week, I was very unrealistic with my expectations and what I could achieve in that time. I thought that because I knew I only had two hours that I would be super focused. That didn’t happen plus I had two little visitors constantly – I think they just wanted to make sure I was there. For myself this week I have decided to reduce my expectations, only have one thing on my to do list, and maybe get up earlier some days to do my IT work? It’s a learning curve for us all right? I would love to know in the comments below what worked for you and what didn’t.
This week is normally one of celebration for me and my family. Its my sister’s birthday on Wednesday followed by my nieces on Thursday (this year she is turning 21) and mine on Friday. Normally we try to meet up and have some sort of celebration. Its obviously not going to happen this year. Plus, last week I realised I had no presents bought for either. For me and my sister that’s ok. We don’ mind meeting up after and sharing a late birthday cake, but for my niece that’s turning 21 I felt I needed to try and get something posted. A lot of the bigger companies now have shut warehouses so there are no postal orders. So I just want to take this time to reassure my clients that as long as the post office is open I can get orders out and during this time I will gift wrap and write a personal letter from you. As birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions are still happening and I feel that it’s important we don’t forget them as it’s the little things in life that can really see us through our days during these uncertain times.
I am trying to get a newsletter out each week on a Wednesday morning, these will hopefully help brighten your day. I will mix them up with jewellery treats, changing routines and how to cope plus keep you up to date as I go through my rebranding, new website and new collection – which I am super excited about.
Well that’s all for this week, don’t forget to sign up to my newsletter if you haven’t already don’t so (you can unsubscribe at any time if its not for you).
Until then, stay home and stay safe.
