Did You Remember to Switch Off?
Ahh, post holidays. Some of you make be back at work now, but I’m not re-opening the studio until the 5th January. Having shut up shop on 22nd December, this gave me a glorious two week break. From what I’ve read on Facebook, Twitter and other blogs, I know many other WAHMs managed a similar break. I hope that those who go out to work also managed to get a decent break.
But – and this is a big but – did you remember to switch off in that break? I did, but not for two weeks. I managed a lot of the two weeks without doing any work, but my head was ticking away for most of the time. Making plans, coming up with new ideas, pondering at least two new businesses before reminding myself I don’t have time to take on two new businesses …
Between Christmas and New Year I did have to do something though, I needeed to exorcise the things whirling around in my head. I got into the studio to pour some casts I’m making for samples and then I got to thinking about my other business.
Before I knew it, I had created a new blog, specifically for writing about and reviewing the children’s books that I sell. Of course, there’s not a huge amount on there at the moment, since we were away over new year and I couldn’t work on it. Feel free to pop over and have a look, and if you’d like to join the list of potential reviewers, use the contact page on there to let me know. The new blog is called Mahala’s Barefoot Books and I’d love to know what you think.
