Crunch Time

When I left my job as head of customer service at a local unit trust firm, I thought my days of occasionally pulling all-nighters were at an end.

Since yesterday, I’ve been working till about 2am to make batches of soap for a client, for whom I am really grateful. But gosh, I didn’t realise how tiring it would be! I’ve been on my feet all night ever since the kids went to bed, and having to draw out even more of myself after a full day of non-stop activity. Granted, it Was a beautiful day (lunch and laughter with a new-found friend, buying new bedsheets for the kids, flipping through Real Simple mags in a 3-hour wait to see my gynae).

But everyone has limits. And I think I’m pushing past mine. Whether it’s a good or bad thing, we’ll just have to see what I’m like in a few hours when the kids wake up. :”>

  1. Ah it’s so true… I worked for years in corporate as an administrator but NEVER worked as much as I do now being an artist! I don’t think people realize how much we do when we work from home. The balance comes over time though as we learn how to manage it all. 😉

    I found you through Luthien’s blog and am delighted you two have found each other. She’s a beautiful and unique soul in this world and it’s wonderful to see her find nearby friend!
    All the best♥

  2. That’s alright. I sleep everyday at 2AM too 🙂 Because of my work that is. Not making soaps though. It’s good that you keep getting orders.

    Now you reminded me that I still have body cream to make for Christmas orders.
