New Post!!!!

…..or is it?

IS IT??? No seriously, it isn’t really. It is a holding post. I post that is to pop up to say: I am still here, but I am working through ‘stuff’, so I am not here really. I am kind of convinced that nobody else is here either. All gone.

Well, this all makes perfect sense.

I miss my mum.

I am in denial re Christmas, and the general election.

Here is one of my collages:-

I have been accepted to sell my wares on the new British Craft House website. I am HERE, but I am having problems setting up the payment whatnots… and what with the Etsy shop as well I am feeling like I’ve opened a small shopping precinct, and none of it feels right. All these marketing people are very jolly, and bouncy, and overexcitable, and I simply feel ill at ease and uncomfortable.

I don’t know what I am doing really. I just want to go somewhere and have a good cry. Then I’m sure I will feel better.

Addendum

My dad died yesterday. So I will be away for a while having a good cry.

    Oh dear, one can without dogged positivity sometimes, it’s quite wearing! I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it all soon and you’ll start enjoying your cottage industry. Best of luck x P.S. Snowing in Bristol this morning!

      Looby – I am finding all marketing hollow at the moment, and grating. You see, I do enjoy making things until someone comes along and suggests I sell my things – I like the idea, obviously, but then when I do it I feel all wrong. I despair of myself, I really do.

      Dinah – Chan says he would like his laptop back. Do you have a blank keyboard? Have you tried writing the letters back on with a Posca marker pen?
      I think Chan’s laptop should have its own blog. Just saying.

        Who the hell is Chan???An escapee from Hong Kong riots? A spy from the Canberra embassy? Maybe he’s a ten year old slave from the co is to insert teeny-tiny springs intomputer factory whose job
        Yes, that. You people can play with this all day-I need more coffee. Stronger coffee.And $5,000,000 sent to my account in Lagos. I wonder if I could patent this and market it as a new board game?

    Ugh, marketing. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could delegate all that to Charmaine? I have been perusing the wares at British Craft House, and it’s quite the Aladdin’s Cave, isn’t it? The hand-painted personalised gin glasses (capacity: one bottle) are spiffy.

    Oh dear, marketing isn’t really in your blood, is it? Think Robert Dougal or Judith Chalmers trying to flog Stannah stairlifts or pension plans on daytime TV and maybe you’ll work it out. Jx

    PS Sorry to hear about Mum.

      Jon – No, I have nothing for sale in my blood. I think I’m more Thora Hird! Or Nora Batty.
      Ack, my mum died back in March. The grieving process goes on.

    It’s me again! Still on the wonky-donkey keyboard and, sadly, only drinking coffee.But The Laptop Man rang yesterday to say he’d sorted the problem, cleaned it up and would I like him to upgrade to OS to Windows 10. I’d had a glass of wine at lunch, so I said “yes.” And now I’m in a mild panic…

        Dinah – I am adding an addendum to this post, as my dad died yesterday. What a year eh?
        My dad was always getting the computer man in to sort out his internet issues!

      Thank you, Lulu! You are very kind!
      I think I might knock the marketing on the head because as we have established on this post – I’m not cut out for it! And I also have sad news.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. And sorry you’re not feeling comfortable with your commercial ventures. I must say a bunch of jolly, bouncy, and overexcitable people would make me pretty uncomfortable as well.

    I’m really sorry to hear about your Dad, and your Mum died quite recently as well I understand. You are always such a gutsy cheerful person but I know these things can be hard to deal with and my very warmest sympathies to you. It;s horrible I know, especially with this dreadful election muddling our world xxx

    Such a sad update. Wish I could write the right thing to take your mind off the sad thoughts. I would make a terrible grief counselor since I would have little to say. Maybe here’s a tissue and you should sit down. Actually now that I think about it, going for a walk is good. Wishing you better times soon.
