So first off wow, a long time since I have posted and I cannot believe that! The correlation has to be the Summer holiday slow down. What do I mean by that??? Children. There has been a dramatic decrease in productivity since the schools broke up and we have had the children at home. Neither Steven or myself have had a chance to paint or take photos. As Steven’s main income for this house is his role as a commercial photographer that is kinda a bummer. That is not to say he has not being processing back orders and preparing prints for framing but the actual getting out there … well at this rate he will forget what a camera is!
And you can forget the ability for me to sit at the computer and paint. As soon as I am down the children seem to come from all corners of the world and all sit on my lap wanting a go at painting or to play One More Level.
We do however love them lots and in reality the pleasure of being self employed is that we do not have to palm the children off to relatives when the schools break up. Instead we get to share in their every day adventures and go surfing. It’s a hard life but someone has to do it.
