Out with the old......

I'm still a bit in holiday mode, after all Mia and Jonny don't go back to school until Monday.  So I'm taking it easy and pottering about, baking far too many cakes, catching up on reading and religiously practicing yoga every day in prep for the Edinburgh Half Marathon I am doing for Breast Cancer Care, in between keeping them (and Alfie) out of mischief.

This year I have decided to take a different approach to things - I feel focused and strong, and gradually getting rid of dead wood.  Over the past six months or so I have streamlined my stockists to the ones I have a great relationship with, I can do well without ones that don't pay on time or give prompt stock takes.  I will be concentrating on my online shop more after getting rid of the dreaded Mr Site, coming back for 2011 with lots of new designs.

I don't have any freelance admin work on the horizon for January, which is disappointing, but a reflection on the bad weather we have had recently coupled with the expense of Christmas.  The extra time I have I am going to use to spend some well needed time in the house re-sanding floors, painting and making tonnes of new cushions for my bedroom, and thinking about starting a fab dove grey/white/metallic quilt.....
