I had no intention of taking virtually the whole summer off work but it does seem to have been like that! I continued to see clients, however, my workshops, socials and Fair planning had a break and it was great (if a little trying!) to spend time with my family and get away on holiday and a few camping trips thrown in.
I hope your summer went well, I must admit half way through I started to struggle, it seemed so long until my children went back to school and we had already had our main holiday and the summer stretched out in front of us, with a bit of support and asking for help and an unplanned camping trip we did make it through and now they are back.
So now, I am back full of great ideas and plans which my break helped me to give consideration to and see a way forward with the socials and workshops.
PARENT SOCIAL UPDATE
I am very pleased that I have at last found a more permanent location for the Parent Socials, I loved meeting everyone in the great local cafes (and there’s no reason why we can’t sometimes still do that) but I did feel that some people couldn’t be so open, as there were other people around, also moving the day and location meant some people couldn’t keep track of when and where it was. A stroke of luck meant I contacted the Friends Meeting House in Acomb (very close to me) and asked if I could use a room there and it has all come together. I am also hoping to use the venue for my workshops there too in the future. Click the link below to find out more:
