Hello everyone,

I'm not sure about you but the days were definitely starting to roll together for me. The reason was quite simply I wasn't following my own rules. To not work over the weekend. I found I would just nip out for what started as an hours work and ended up maybe lasting for two or three hours then rolling into both days. After having a sick child on Friday I decided I needed a bit of a break which meant no work! This worked great for me on Saturday, the sun was out all day and we stayed in the garden painting and playing.

Did you have a good Saturday, or did you give into the temptation of work? On Sunday, I had a very lazy day planned for after I got the weeks schoolwork printed off. I have to say after two hours working on it, I felt depressed and my Sunday did not feel so lazy and chilled. Now its Monday and I have to say I did not sleep well, I was dreading the home schooling and that is with two kids that are reasonably well behaved. Now, the schooling went well but we also had to call into school to pick up booklets so it’s now 4.25pm and I’m only getting out to work (now you understand why I’m working at the weekend). But really, I must try and catch myself on and look after myself...maybe it will prevent more grey hairs coming through lol? Once again, I think I need to reduce my expectations for my business. It's hard to do as it gives me great escapism during our current situation. How are you all finding the work/life balance when working from home? I would love to hear from you all in the comments below.

Anyway enough moaning lol, I did finish a few more sea glass pieces with one lady not being able to wait and already purchasing the drop earrings. Plus, I made the girlies sea glass rings to match their necklaces. It won't be long before I have enough pieces to show a full collection, let’s hope I get my website finished on time....I have now got a new banner which will be going on my website but you can get a sneak preview of it on my FB page...have a look and please send me feedback, I really do want to know how your finding my new look.

Well I’m going to go now and try and get a couple of little jobs finished before I gotta make the dinner.

Stay Safe and I'm sending lots of love your ways.

Katrina xx
