The first day of my new business adventure.
The first day to start getting things done so I can be my own boss.
Today was supposed to be my first proper day of self-employment.
Instead, let's take a look what I did:
★ woke up awkwardly as Miss Meower lay across my bed, thereby pushing me out of it
★ played 12 rounds of online Scrabble
★ filled in a very important HMRC National Insurance form
★ booked a stall at a craft fair for the end of the month
★ made three new products for my Etsy shop, and started a mini price plan
★ finished a little commission piece
★ got my Google Reader down from 786 unread to 215 unread items
★ designed a mini embroidery as a gift for a friend
★ listened to 3 hours of Motown classics
★ visited an ice cream festival and ate more gelato than necessary (but it was so good!)
★ discussed pretty new rollerskates with Susie
★ tried to ignore a political protest which was loudly going on outside my building
★ attended a craft exhibition at The Haberdashery in Crouch End
★ drank a bowl of super thick white hot chocolate (I say drank, I had to use a spoon)
★ had rather a long discussion with Alison and Sian about the naming of tropical storms
★ admired Sarah's continental knitting style and made plans to visit Ikea next week
Not the most productive of days, but also not the most unproductive. I guess it was inevitable that it wouldn't be a day of getting all.the.things.done since I had put so much pressure on the fact that it was my "first real day of self-employment", so I am happy with what I did manage to achieve, and I'm going to have to stop having such ludicrous expectations of myself.
I just hope next week will be slightly better.
