The last week flew by so quickly that I hardly recognised my ass from my elbow most of the time! I’d spring out of bed gazelle like in the mornings (well okay not QUITE that gracefully!) but I have made a point of getting up earlier on “school days” to sort out breakfast for the kids and get their packed lunches ready … then I even found I actually had time to sit down with a cup of coffee and catch some news before making sure that they were dressed and ready for school. On more than one occasion I actually had time to (shhhh don’t tell anyone!) SHOWER before the morning school run!
Soooo I need to make a bit of an update on the last week and where I’m at with the business, especially because I’ve had my customers commenting asking me what on earth has been going on because the website is down!! I have to say, it puts a huge smile on my face to know that customers have commented on my blog and searched me out on facebook! It’s actually nice to have been missed!!
DeeLights is still very much in business!
The plug has most definitely NOT been pulled and I am still alive and kicking. All the while my heart is beating … in my heart I will always be a candlemaker! It’s what I do!! It’s all I do and what I am GOOD at!! Crikey if my customers are actually LOOKING for me online when the business website is down … well that says it all about the quality huh!
Timing has been VERY unfortunate with the run up to Christmas, but I’ve not had much choice. Well okay that’s a lie, there is always a choice, but I know I made the right choice.
I took time OUT from the business to settle my children into a new home after leaving their father and all they have ever known for their short little lives. I had a brand spanking new home to set up and my priorities had to be re-focused 100% onto my children. It was absolutely essential that I wasn’t stressing out about filling orders or having them looked after in the evenings while I was working because they have needed me waaaaay more than any customer.
The website IS down at the moment but that’s only because I am in the middle of transferring hosts, and it should be back up and running again soon! In the meantime I’ll be getting the eBay shop stocked asap over the next day or so. I’ll update here when there is news to tell anyway!
My ex and I seem to be getting on okay as well. There have been a few “dodgy” moments where we’ve yelled and screamed at each other, but for the most part it’s all on good terms and the children are being put first which is what matters.
As to my new life in “single-ville” and the business relocation and new premises and everything ELSE that has happened … I will have to save that for another day because as Zebedee would say – “time for bed ….”
