Happy New Year!
I wish you a year filled with peace, hope, health, happiness and joy :)
Well, 2012 was a funny old year - some good bits, some not so good bits, and some in-between bits - Mum was really ill; Morgan was ill too; I turned 40; lost my day job; held an exhibition; I was in and out of hospital; we had some wonderful trips; I finally got to visit my brother's restaurant; I had work featured in three exhibitions ... but most importantly I got to spend the Christmas and New Year holiday with the people I love most in the world, so the year came to a close with lovely shared times.
And now, it's a new year (again? how did that happen?) with a very big new beginning for me!
After losing my job in the Summer, a combination of illness/surgery/recovery for the rest of the year gave me a lot of time to consider my future.
Thankfully, with Morgan's support, I am now self-employed :)
And, following many (many!) months of negotiation, I am exceptionally happy to share the first pic of my new shop!
I haven't fixed an opening date yet as there's still so much I want to get done.
So I will be off for now to go and make a start.
Promise to catch up with you all properly very soon :)x
