Juggling Work and School

IMG_20180907_105513So, this happened this week. First week at school (wow!). And whilst I’m over the moon for my little one, and so proud to see her wandering in on her own all confident and excited, my goodness is it a shocker to the system!!

Suddenly my life has been shaken about and everything has changed. I now have to fit my working day into 5 hours, and it’s short, so short! I get back from the school run, kettle on and then sit at my desk. Before I know it, boom, it’s time to head back to school.

I have always been a fan of routine, and now, suddenly, I have it. But after over 4 years of chaos and a (slight) lack of organisation, it’s a real shock to the system. With a five hour work day, I actually have less time to fit everything in than I used to, but now I have 5 days a week. 5 days a week when I know I’ll get to work. No more having to postpone jobs for days (or more often than not working in the evenings to get them done in time).

It’s a lifestyle change, it’s a new chapter and fingers and toes crossed it will mean more stability and less panic (plus the added bonus of topping my 10,000 steps every day with the walk there and back – bonus!).

Change can be tiring, change can be hard work, but we must embrace it and enjoy it. Without change I suppose life would be pretty boring. I need to get ready now for the homework, the school meetings, the endless parties and everything else that comes with this fantastic new adventure. A huge well done to all those working parents out there!!

Indian Wedding Programme

I’ve mentioned previously that the Indian Wedding Order of Service is by far my most popular item. The problem is, when you have an item that you think is selling well, you let it sit stagnant, just revelling in the success. Sometimes though you need to give it a revamp, let your customers know that you’re still developing ideas; ideas that will benefit them and their occasion.

The new programme is very similar to the old one, but now it’s smaller. A single A5 page printed on both sides. It’s cheaper for you and less to read for your guests.

Country Hounds Logo Design

Country Hounds Logo

Here is the new logo for brand new business Country Hounds.

The clients’ brief was to include a Labrador and the colour teal, and this is the final result. I love the simplicity of the two colours.

Sometimes creating a logo can be hard work, especially for a new business when the client has so many ideas but doesn’t know exactly which direction they want to go in. But Jasminee from Country Hounds was a dream to work with. I wish her every success in her new venture x
