I love blogging, I really enjoy it as it is a great way to keep in touch with followers, visitors and friends and family who I may not see as often as I would like to. Recently it seems to be getting harder and harder to blog regularly. I feel guilty because there are the occasional (very, very rare) days when I look back and can't see what I have done - although I feel I am on the go all of the time. I was chatting with a friend yesterday about this and we both agreed that despite having so many 'time-saving' gadgets, wonderful technology, etc there really is no time saved, just more time spent on pressing all of the buttons to make the gadgets work!
It is hard to believe that we are approaching the last Bank Holiday of the year before Christmas - frightening and judging by the weather and the state of the trees around here, autumn is well and truly here! Friends of ours flew off to Australia a couple of weeks ago and are missing this wonderful wet weather - I am sure they are so disappointed. However, looking at the forecast, I have sneaky feeling that they might just be lucky enough to experience some wet weather when they arrive back in September.
So what have I been doing recently? Working on my events – lots to do and the first one is less than two months away. I am still looking for Event Assistants. I have one person signed up, but really want a team so that I have back-ups if someone is unwell on the day of an event. I find it very hard to believe that nobody wants or needs work around here – no commitment, just one day (or event) at a time. I know Surrey is an affluent area, but on social media sites there are people asking for work in this locality, just not interested in my work - perhaps because they have to be self-employed? Oh well, perhpas nearer the time of the events, people will being to think some extra money would be welcome.
I recently helped my pottery tutor create her website and someone contacted her asking if they could be put in touch with the website designer (er, me?). Could this be a whole new career? I don’t think so, but it is proving interesting recommending/agreeing designs, photographs, etc, but not really something I would like to do on a permanent basis - adding another string to my already buckling bow is not on my To-Do list.
Not quite up-to-date in my blog-land, but sort of-ish. Have a good Bank Holiday weekend everyone, fingers crossed the sun shines for some of the time.
