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 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!
Today is my Mum's birthday ~ Happy Birthday Mum, I love you xxx
