Thanks to this pandemic for showing me I’d much rather label school supplies in between attending virtual Startup Canada gov consultations, recording podcast interviews and doing freelance work.
Besides sleeping, reading fiction, growing a human that is determined to slow me down and supporting small businesses, this is what I’ve been up to lately.
I’m fine but this post is less highlight reel, more reality and look at what I’m not doing right now because my life is changing.
As the mum of two Cancer season kids and a friend to many water sign babies, I feel all their feels and can’t believe I am now the parent of two 5 and 3 year olds…who can pretty well outrun, outcry and outcreative me any day of the week.
Since birth, throughout the infant, toddler and now school age stage, I’ve been nurturing an appreciation for small business, good coffee, the arts and impromptu on street performances in both our first home (London, England) and our current home (Ottawa, Canada).
This is where I’m pretending I am spending most of my sunny days when I close my eyes: On a beach, with nowhere to be and hair that stays in a bun.
Signs, signs, everywhere a sign! We won’t be able to travel to Australia any time soon, but our passports will always be kept up to date to revisit our first home together.
12 years ago I went to Ireland for the first time, we were only there 4 days but I knew I had to come back.
I wrote a post in a freelance parenting community group based in the UK and it received more feedback than I anticipated. Going to share it here in case you were looking for another way to articulate your value (not that you should need to).
