Hello October

5 October 2018

I know so many of your are thinking the same as me - how is it October already?  I always find that once September hits the year seems to fly.  It has been "half term" here this week and I am sneeking some work while I can!

Today I am taking the boys to watch The 3 Little Pigs at the Nassau Theatre in Claremont.  They are so excited.  And now that the weather is much warmer we can hopefully spend the rest of the day outside playing...when I say "we" I mean the boys while I sew and try to work!

We have a lot going on this month.  It is Harry's birthday, then building works are starting at our house.  We are knocking down a wall between the kitchen and dining room to make it open plan and putting vinyl flooring throughout the whole house.  While we are super excited for the outcome, we are dreading it a little as we won't really have a house for a while.  So I have warned my friends that we will be camping out in their lounges most afternoons.   We won't have a kitchen for at least 4 weeks either...but to make it simple I will just get meals delivered from The Flying Pan I think.  

I have quite a few craft markets coming up in the next month too.

Sat 13th October - Rondebosch Park Craft Market
Fri 26 October - WPPS Christmas Market
Sat 3 November - Constantia Christmas Market
Sat 10 November - Rondebosch Park Craft Market

I will share the details a few days before each one on social media so to keep you updated!

Have you listened to any of the podcasts I recommended?  I love finding others who have chosen to take a creative path and how they are doing.  It helps me to remember to keep pursuing my creativity as a sustainable, fulfilling option and that its okay to feel the way I do.  Often us creatives have many insecurities about making our creativity our job.  And that shouldn't be the case at all.

Have an awesome October my friends.
