TEN FREAKING DAYS VANISHED.
And for the most part I cannot tell you what I did other than work and a delivery run to Campbelltown with a stop at IKEA to pick up Kallax shelving for the studio. That is the secret IKEA back alley you see up there – make use of it and your trip will be a lot quicker!
I did manage to get some of the rainbow IKEA bags at long last.
Plus also work, more work, and work. Oh and we got tested for COVID – all clear.
Since we last talked, I have posted 40 packages, 4 of those international to the USA with a 5th to head that way tomorrow. TO ALBUQUERQUE I nearly lost it when she gave me the address being the huge Breaking Bad fan that I am.
And I anticipate more work as I now have three DHL packages packed full of essential items due to land in the next couple of days. Plus a website about to go live in the next couple of days. If you want a link to it when it goes live leave me a comment on this post and I will email it to you. :)
It feels like no time passed at all. I do not understand what is going on, am I trapped in some kind of Delorean but it goes forward instead of back in time? But I did get an awful lot of awesome stuff done, such as new shelving in the studio –
Plus all the old shelves went into the storeroom..
Just like that, a room I hated to go into at all because it was such a disorganised mess is now a pleasure to visit.
These Kallax were already here. There are two more in the house in The Other Half’s room. Everything business related now has a home and it feels amazing. And maybe this means once I launch the website I might have some spare time again.
But you know, today it all caught up with me. I usually go to a weekly craft group on a Wednesday and while we aren’t allowed to go back into the hall, the ladies set up a coffee morning in a local park, and groups of ten were allowed to sit in circles and chat and have coffee and snacks.
I was so thrilled to see everyone. It was such a great morning. Absolutely gorgeous day out. It wasn’t until we were about to leave that the reality of our new reality hit me like a freight train. I was able to keep it together until I got back in the car but I drove home with tears running down my face.
I think I have been so busy and focused on looking after everyone else – the parents, the other half, the animals, the business, doing what needs to be done in the safest way possible, the masks, the hand sanitizer, decontaminating.. it has all been go, go, go. I’ve had no time to think about what we’ve lost. The normal, the usual, the people we’ve not been able to spend time with.
I really missed those ladies. I wanted to hug them all and of course I couldn’t. But at least I got to see them.
And I really missed you all. I haven’t even had time to blog read, or watch teevee, or do anything even remotely like relax and catch up.
But the next 3 days are mine. I’ve closed the doors to take a time out before we reopen the studio next week to clients. I’ve got stuff to post and the website to sort out but I am quite determined to business only from 9-6pm for the next three days – the rest of the time I will be relaxing, reading your blogs and commenting on them, and watching some teevee at last. :)
Plus spend some time in this newly awesome space.

Oh, I would love the link to your website. Your storage and workspace looks marvelous.
Being busy is both good and bad. It can shield us from reality. I miss hanging out with people too, and giving and getting hugs. It’s hard to imagine living in this new normal for a long time, but it’s looking like we will be. There are times I feel like I can’t bear it.
I actually realized this morning you hadn’t posted for quite some time…and you’re usually so on top of that :-)
I love these IKEA shelving units. I’ve got them, too.
I’d like to see your website. I think even the most mentally together person must have struggled at times over the last couple of months. It is allowed.
Your space looks amazing! Happy your business is such a success but I hope you get a break. Where I live, two households are allowed to visit each other now (exclusively!) so we’ve paired up with my parents – such a relief!
Nice to be organized. And it seems that you are ready for almost anything. Congratulations. Aloha from Hawaii.
Thinking of you and I hope you are getting some rest!
I would love a link to the website please
Looks very organized. I want to be organized. Do you offer classes in that?
