Going AWOL

I’ve been quiet.  Maybe you’ve noticed?  But probably not!

Lots of things have been happening, but at the same time my day-to-day routine has been boring me senseless.

I haven’t blogged.  Mostly because I haven’t felt as though anything interesting has been happening!

So…  Here’s what’s been going on.

My phone broke.  ‘So?’, I hear you all ask.  It’s not a huge deal, but I couldn’t contact anyone unless I knew their number (screen wasn’t working, but keypad was), and all numbers are ON my phone.  For various reasons, it couldn’t be replaced for five weeks.  It drove me crazy.  

I stopped taking pictures.  I didn’t take part in Project 366.  I think I missed out on a month, and I’m kicking myself for it now.

All I’ve been doing is going to playgroup, grocery shopping and slowly melting in the heat.  

And, for the last few months, although I’m very happy to be with V all day, I’ve begun to feel as though there must be more to life!

I have just not felt like myself.  I think I lost my mojo.  I’m not entirely sure if it’s back…

I had an idea while were in Dubai over Christmas and after discussing it with LagosDad (and getting his (financial) support), we decided that I would start working on opening my own business!  

From tomorrow I will start selling baby, squeaky and toddler shoes 🙂  And in a few weeks I’ll have baby and toddler clothing too!


So, over the last few months I’ve been designing my logo, doing orders, getting my head round excel and costings, etc.  These are things I’ve never done before – but I’m so excited!

And over the last two weeks, I’ve been stock-taking, list-making, unpacking and re-packing boxes of shoes and organising.

Wish me luck!
