It's been such a long time - longer than I ever intended - and I feel as though I owe all of you a little explanation of where I've been for so long. Well, here it is -
During September, I developed a viral infection and was off work for several weeks, during which I barely managed to lift my head off the pillow and only narrowly missed out on an 'intravenous drip' medical intervention. October was spent at work - ten hour days, six days a week - trying to catch up on all of the critical work that I'd missed during my illness. In the evenings, I'd come home, try to eat something and head straight to bed. October was not all together exciting. During the last month, I've been continuing with the ridiculous work schedule, but have also been making some (massive) changes - in an attempt to bring some balance back into my life. Finally, there is some light at the end of the tunnel!
In December, I'll be leaving my current role (with a huge sigh of relief) and taking on a new, much more exciting role as Business Development Manager for The Bead Shop Liverpool. As I'll be working part-time, I'll have the chance to spend more time with my friends and family; be able to work on developing some of my own business ideas; and, of course, I'll be able to blog a little more regularly. You can't get rid of me that easily!
Things may still be a little 'intermittent' until the New Year - not least because I have the world's worst internet provider - so bear with me while I make a few changes to the look and feel of the blog and work out a new schedule. In the meantime, thanks so much for your patience - and for all of the sweet words of encouragement!
