    This is so brilliant, may I share it?

  2. Heartfelt words of wisdom. Operating a small business (non creative- leave that to my daughter in law) takes dedication, hard work and passion. I know your commitment to supporting each other Tem, is shared by many and thank you for so eloquently expressing this for us xx

      Thanks for your comment Sandra, yes you are absolutely right about other small (non-creative) businesses. Sometimes it all feels like an uphill battle. And we all do a happy dance on those occasions when it feels as though we are winning. X

We need to talk about expectations because it seems to be standard these days that everyone’s expectations are too damn high.

As I see it, the challenge for our generation is that we are ‘unlearning’. For example, there’s still a tendency to believe that adults can feel and express anger, but our children must not.

If I ask you what you want your kids to be, chances are you’ll say ‘happy,’ right?

Lockdowns are REALLY challenging for your mental health – and for your children’s wellbeing too. In a time of global uncertainty, I feel a call to sit gently with our emotions and take a conscious approach to the structure of the day.
