homeward bound

I took this week off work to:

1 - test out what it would be like to work from home.
2 - to start up an Etsy store.
3 - to try and get my new flat more sorted.
4 - to sew my little heart out.

Of course, as I am off to Christchurch tomorrow for a 'mini-break' with my bf it has only really given me the last few days.

I have realised that:

1 - as I knew, I put a lot of pressure on myself as my own 'boss'.
2 - the internet is a complex world - I am more than a little computer illiterate but do get excited when I manage simple tasks. Though can someone please help me with adding images of my Etsy store to the side on my blog???
3 - the 'good' sewing days are always equated with the 'bad' sewing days.
4 - we have too much stuff!!! (Though the place is looking much cozier - I really do love it!).
5 - I could very much be a hermit. I like my own company. I like listening to old records and sewing and cooking and talking to no one. (To be fair, when my bf gets home I jump all over him and force him to engage in conversation).

One day this will be my life.

I would love to hear from all you lovely bloggers for whom working from home is a reality.



  1. I LOVE working from home. Love love love it, highly recommend it if you are self-disciplined and enjoy being on your own. It took me a long time to learn how to switch off, though, as you can't 'leave the office' at the end of the day!

  2. Yay for working from home! To put the little etsy images on the side of your blog, log into my etsy and you should find a little 'etsy mini' thing - email me if you need help or if you want, send me your passwords and I can do it for you!

    Good luck lovely! xx

  3. Congrats on your new venture! I wish I worked from home :)

  4. My dream next year is to work from home - finger crossed. I'll be doing Etsy full time :)
