routine

I've spent so long fitting paper-and-string around my old day job that finding a new routine is a little bit trial & error...I seem to have settled into one that's working for now, but I'm flexible if it feels like changing again!!
Early Morning I spend time on the computer, answering emails & sorting orders and quite often I fit in a little hand sewing time (along with coffee #2!)

About 10am I make my way to the workshop & I make stock & special orders, photograph items and start cutting out the next things to make.
Afternoons are dedicated to order picking/packing/posting (I keep experimenting with the time I go to the Post Office and so far the queues have been smaller than when I had to go at 5pm~and that means a BIG saving of around 30 minutes every day!) when I'm done at the Post Office I spend a few hours doing computery/website/paper work type jobs

... Evenings are for hand sewing, planning & list writing!
(or going out but that doesn't happen every night!!)
Working by myself still feels like a bit of a novelty...like I've taken a holiday from the day job and am due back soon...I'm sure that feeling will wear off eventually, but either way I'm loving every minute of it so far!
