Back to work lazy bones

Blog No Comments

I’ve recently realised that I’ve been off work for 3 years.  I didn’t know it at the time, and it sure as hell didn’t feel like I wasn’t working, in fact, I’ve worked on some massive projects, done 2 trade shows, exported chairs and throws to 5 different countries and written 2 knitting books oh and had 2 children and moved house.  Yet when I sat on the toy box the other day and Jai’s tractor shouted back at me from the depths “back to work Lazy bones” something rang true.

Re adjusting to my now restricted working hours is something that I really struggle with.  I love my work !  I mean really really love it, which means that I have happily worked though the day and night on countless occasions.  I can’t do that anymore, in fact I have entire days that I am committed to spending with my kids, promising not to check my phone or pick up needles (until the go to bed and I slip quietly into the studio.)

So I’d better get to work then!
