You know, I really could start every post with "I have been sooo busy!"… but that would get a bit boring. But geez, it's true!
Apart from raising my wee lil' one, I've been designing a new blog and a new resume/portfolio website for myself, a new website for a friend (can't wait to reveal that one to you, it's looking fab), and a new website for hubby's business — I go to sleep at night with HTML and CSS floating around in me noggin'. All while trying to squeeze in the odd bit of craft (rather unsuccessfully at the moment), keeping the house in semi-respectable order, and cooking some damn fine food.
There's been loads of warm and fuzzy stuff going on this month, but I also had news from work that I've been made redundant (hence the portfolio website). My trusty side-kick has also gotten the boot, so the Melbourne office staff are entirely dependant on the head office in Sydney for their creative. Big bummer. The head honchos at work were jolly good though, gave me the option of taking the redundancy now, or waiting until my maternity leave was due to finish at the end of September, in case a position became available in another area of the business in the meantime. I decided to take a leap of faith now, and see what's out there — probably slim pickings for a part-timer, but bubby comes first.
Anyhoo, I know I've been pretty absent of late, so in a Insty nutshell, here's what I've been up to… (most recent to oldest)
Waaaah!! Not you too! I recall you thought it could be a possibility.. so sorry to hear it. Hope you're feeling ok about it. Mine actually worked out very well for me (was freaking out about leaving Gus) but was still a bit of a crappy way to end things at my long-held job. Are you going to freelance? You're very clever to be able to do website, wish I could!
take care xo
