(We’ve had an AWFUL lot of Spice Girls recently 🙄 )
That’s it, shops are closed, parcels are sent, house is being tidied and decorated, shopping is (nearly) done, kids are getting excited.
We took somewhere in the region of £65,000 this November and December and for the first time ever, we can really see a profit. It’s been unbelievable. Without Max at home, we’d never have done it, as it is, we *just* made it and the kids have been okay too, in fact, despite it not being quite as i’d like, they have all made some big leaps forward in what they do and have interests in. Max has done loads of good things with them, so even if i’ve been stuck being a businesswoman, the have at least had proper decent attention. We’ve got a way to go to perfect the balance, but it is on its way.
That said, there are going to be some big changes in the new year, both to mine and Max’s life and the girls. Both Fran and Maddy are considering giving school a try, Josie will be going to nursery a bit and both Max and i are likely to have a very different work/home balance and different things to keep me occupied too. It’s going to be all change, i don’t think we’ve ever have exactly the same life back again, but that’s good.
