So, as an independent business woman/jewellery designer, what happens when I have a sick day?
Basically nothing! I’ve spent the last three days in bed, with what the doctor diagnosed today as “a very nasty throat”, & during my conscious moments (which were pretty scarce), all I could think about was what jewellery I was meant to be working on today.
Monday, in particular, is one of my ‘get-everything-done-while-the-kids-are-at-school’ days. With the summer school holidays looming, I had intended to use these last couple of Mondays, to get as much done as possible before the holidays started, & all plans go out the window.
My saving grace will be my planning. I have my Autumn/Winter 2008 season outlined, so I intend to take work with me wherever I go over the next few weeks. Watching the kids at swimming practice, waiting to pick kids up from school. Any 5 minute opportunity, I will make the most of.
