Busy Busy

Today is Wednesday but it feels like it has should be Friday. Why? I have been busy! Yes me. Not only the usual cooking and cleaning that is just perpetual in my life. I have spent a fair bit of time sorting out made by val things.

I have had a few sales recently through my online shops which has been great and given me a bit of a boost and recharged my get up and go. I hadn't sold anything for a wee while and when I checked my emails and saw the first sale I actually got a bit of a fright!

So I have sorted out all my receipts just need to square up my bank accounts and then I can do my tax return ::joy::

I have sorted out all the financial bits and bobs from the shop I sell to.

I am trying to spread out all the stock I had made for craft fairs between my various outlets although something makes me nervous about not having a craft fair stock sitting here even although I have no current intentions to do any more fairs so that is all a bit daft. I do however still have a large stock of cards that I need to sell, so I might have to concentrate on photographing and listing them.

I have also been introduced to Stumbleupon through the Folksy Forums. I have signed up, you can find me here Stumble Folksy and here Stumble Misi I appreciate all 'likes' hint hint.

Phew what else? Oh yes I bought myself a book and it arrived today - yay!

I haven't had a chance to look at it yet but I am excited hee hee.

Off to busy myself again.

Take care x

Domestic issues

It is difficult when you work from home and have children to have any time off, isn't it? The boys have been off school and DH has been off work for the last two weeks. I love the boys being off school but it is difficult to have down time, I mean all the domestic stuff still needs done, the cooking , the cleaning, the tidying, I try and get them to help but so often it is easier just to do it myself. I have tried really hard to take a step back these holidays and as a direct result I have just spent actual HOURS tidying, hoovering and dusting two weeks of grime! but hey if it had been one week it would have taken me just as long.

Well the holidays are over, the weather is picking up, I have 'a list' I have 'plans' onwards and upwards off I go to conquer the world!!!......hang on, I'll just have a biscuit first...oh and maybe some tea...
