This little study of mine doesn’t seem to be working for me as a creative space right now.
There is no spare room for my fabric to be laid out, I can’t possible put my cutting board on top of the work surface to cut. The pasting table that I have been using is taking up more space than is productive… what does a girl do? Especially with a little 3 year old tornado running about my feet wanting attention and cuddles at each moment – as is their job to want – leaving me little else time to do anything but scratch my head in wonderment at the ‘full time’ mummy’s that can manage not only to run a full time business, write books, design fabrics and create patterns, then create other items with those fabrics…. yet, I struggle on a daily basis just to get to grips with the house work… which is winning right now!
What do these goddess’s use? I would love to have another Au Pair, but could I cope with that, another person in the house, another person who is under my feet and charge… oh and another mouth to feed, when I can bearly feed what is hear right now? No an Au Pair is not the option for me right now. Though very very tempting… at £60 a week, very tempting…
What can I do? even to have a cleaner? I’d be going around prior to the cleaner coming cleaning… that negates that idea then, so do I live in utter chaos or what? should I clear out some of my craft/study room bits, should I stick to what I know best… sewing etc and remove the card making stuff into the get rid of pile… to go onto Facebook that is, because there is too much to post. I could do with another room being created, such as a conservatory being rapidly attached to the back of the house, or a sun room… sun room is better because it would have a roof… that roof then being flat and being able to walk upon… therefore the kids can go out there in the summer… noooo I can go up there in the summer, whilst the kids are in the garden, and watch over them with my cold glass of wine, looking up the valley …. so… who is going to give me the x quantity of thousands to do it? No? so that isn’t going to happen for a while either….. hrmph…. So just why couldn’t the police get their act together and say that they could keep me safe in work? why? My life would be so much different now if they did…. I can tell you…. then, I might not be sewing either and my latest Cushion… the Manchester City Football Club cushion is proving a hit in Macclesfield, just not the price I suspect…. especially as I’ve not had any phone calls regarding it….
