Well, its been a rough few weeks since I spoke to you guys, that’s for sure. The biggest shock has been that my husband Kev lost his job – just like that. He went in on Monday one week past, and attended a meeting. At that meeting he was told his job was gone. Thankfully he has a couple of months pay and doesn’t have to work his notice, so his time for the past week has been spent job searching.
I’m confident he’ll get another job, but he is really worried. The industry he is in (construction) isn’t exactly teaming with opportunities just now, but I know that if there is a job out there to be had, he’ll get it. We both felt a bit down at the weekend, but are feeling more positive this week. He has an interview on Monday next week and to add to the good news I have a dog photography booking plus I may have sold one of the canvases I designed. We’ll get through it!
I’ve now got 7 people supporting me on Patreon which I’m so honoured to have. The scary truth is that if I’m not making enough money to pay the bills by next March, I’m going to have to look for a full time job, and if that happens, You Tube videos will be few and far between.
I’m still completely stunned how fast the day goes being as I’m not working, but I don’t miss it at all, and I’m most certainly not bored. A friend had the summer holidays off as she is a teacher, and said she was looking forward to getting back to work!
As well as designing canvases, and learning photoshop/photography, I’ve also got some other ideas – one of them is designing and selling tees, but I think looking at my to do list I may be over stretching myself. I’m just so desperate to work from home. Determined may be a better word than desperate lol. Oh, and I have a cosmetic idea too that I hope I can tell you about soon!
Somehow, I’ve managed to do some Xmas shopping in between all the dramas hehe. x
