My 100th Post - And a bit of gossip!

Hello all my lovely readers.

A very special entry from me today - this is my 100th post! I am so proud of my little blog and how far its come since my very first entry back in September last year. Thank you all so much for reading and commenting. You are all ace!

I thought I would use this special post to tell you some exciting news, and also to apologise for and explain the reasons behind my bloggy silence over the past couple of months. And no, I'm not knocked up again before you all jump to over excited conclusions! It's still uber exciting though, I promise.

You must have gathered, in particular when reading my recent Separation Anxiety post, that I hate leaving Daisy to go to work. I've done it for a year now - the job has been grand and my colleagues are all wonderful - but being away from her three days a week has never got any easier. I miss the little ratbag!

Well after long chats and lots of number crunching, Himself and I made an executive decision this weekend, and today I handed in my notice! I am over the moon. I am so excited to be able to put my lovely little family first. They deserve it.

This also means that I will now be able to devote more time to Modern Mummy - as well as my other hobby/new business venture, She Sells Sea Shells. 

I've mentioned my driftwood art in passing on numerous occasions. After operating on a word of mouth basis for the last year or two, I finally got round to setting up a Folksy shop and a Facebook page for my art and the commissions have come rolling in which has been amazing. I have my first two craft fairs coming up in the next couple of months and have been spending my evenings getting creative and producing lots of stock for my stall - not only driftwood signs, hearts and mirrors but also painted beach pebbles and I have even been painting canvases again. Having more time to spend doing something I love so much is going to be a dream come true, especially with the summer coming up and lots of trips to the beach imminent. We have also started converting our lean-to into a little studio for me (look out for the before and after photos which will be coming very soon!) and I am so looking forward to having my own space to work in.

So yes, massive apologies for being so quiet recently, and I hope you can bear with me whilst I work my notice and do all my prep for the fairs. This time next month Modern Mummy will be fully back in business and I can't wait.

Lots of love x
