Am I just ungrateful?

Posted on


Hello and sorry its been such a long time since I've blogged! I always mean to do it more often, but life seems to get in the way!!

I've had a busy few weeks and been away from home for the last few weekends - a family wedding, a cricket final at Lords, a black tie do ... all of which were lovely, but I've started to feel so tired and in need of a weekend at home, that I'm almost resenting the intrusions! Then I start to feel guilty, as my life is so lovely and lots of people would love to have the opportunities I have and the family and friends I have around me, and it got me thinking ... am I being ungratful or does any of this make sense to any of you?

I have a fantastic hubby, two lovely sons, three lovely step-children, two lovely granddaughters and some fabulous friends so I don't mean to sound as if I'm grumbling, but I really would love to make more of this business I've started but just don't seem to have anywhere near enough time for it. Hubby's answer sometimes isn't the most helpful - he just suggests I give it up if I don't have the time for it! When what I was actually thinking was wouldn't it be nice to give up the day job and do this for a living??!

Oh well, back to the sewing machine ... orders to make up and so little time to do it!

Lots of love

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean. I had the choice taken from me when I was made redundant. We have always run businesses from home and I am used to sorting my own time now, I am not sure I want to go back to the 9-5. Who am I kidding - the 8.30 - 5.30 plus a hour travelling each way. We all need to eat but we all like to live too.
