Ok ...the last attempt didn't work at all!
Recently I bought myself an iPad. I really like the way it feels to hold and to flick through. I used to be quite addicted to magazines. I loved them, it was quite an expensive habit and I loved them so much I used to keep them all so I could flick through them whenever I got a chance but they threatened to overtake the house!
Anyway I haven't quite worked out how it works just yet.
I've had a couple of challenges at work that have been quite draining both physically and emotionally, it has consumed my thoughts and each week I would dread what was to come, I spent hours trying to problem solve and finally I've decided to drop some work time in an attempt to find some balance between work, running the house and my desire to create my own art work and nurture my creativity.
Work has been leaving me with very little left over for my home and my art has become a distant third after everything else. I am a little worried about the drop in income but at this stage it is a temporary thing just for the rest of this year so that I can see how we manage. The kids are all working now so they are able to look after their own wants and I've told them that they will have to be responsible for their own phone bills now so that will help. Most importantly I am looking forward to a little more space, not only in my lounge room but also in my head allowing me energy and balance in order to find a little more peace and balance in my life and hopefully a little more productivity.
