I've also got some really exciting things bubbling away that are far beyond the expectations I had when I started this harebrained scheme of Being a Jeweller (some workshop propositions, potentially a Proper Actual Launch Event in partnership with some people and brands I absolutely love... you'll have to wait a bit to find out more about those).
No longer am I in a white-walled office, sat behind my generic desk by 07:30, checking emails, drinking expensive coffee, juggling phone calls and planning for the first of many meetings. No longer do I wear uncomfortable shoes to work and have a collection of extortionately priced make-up to make sure I fit the bill. No longer do I get home at 20:00 after a gruelling and dirty underground journey (just in time to catch up on emails and get to bed before tomorrow).
Don't get me wrong, I loved my life. But I think maybe that was a little bit because I didn't realise just how good it could be.
Today I'll be making a couple of necklaces I sold on Saturday, for some lovely ladies I met at a knitting workshop at Twist, in Woodbridge. Charlie will be in charge of the Thinking Chair. We'll probably head out for a lunchtime walk.
Funny how things turn out.
