Hello summer?

Well, it seems as though summer may have decided to touch down.
It might be just for today, who knows!
I decided to stretch my legs and go for a walk in the field behind our house...well, I say a "walk"...I walked to the bottom of the field, then back again. The farmer has just strimmed another layer off, I presume for hay...I'm looking forward to the bales!
I've been extraordinarily tired lately, hence the lack of blogging, mice, pictures for you to look at, but I thought a little wander might perk me up a bit.
I actually managed to get nearly a full days work in today. I worked nine 'til four! Woo-hoo!

I'm ready for a very deep, very bubbly bath now.
Then sofa, tea and tea cake with strawberry jam. I might light the fire, as it's still a little chilly and has clouded over.
I may spend the evening writing, or I may create some new mice...

Take it easy all!

One day, I will make a decision and stick to it.
I never used to be like this!
My ideas about "what I'm going to do with my life" change from one hour to the next...literally!

Thing is, I keep returning to this idea of setting up a greetings card company.
I LOVE greetings cards, well, not all greetings cards, but generally... I love greetings cards.

The idea of having my own 'business' is very appealling.
I know I already have one, (my illustration and writing), but somehow it doesn't FEEL like a business that's my own.
There are an awful lot of people who make an awful lot of decisions for me, and God, this sounds ungrateful, but I feel at the bottom of the food chain. Don't get me wrong, I am fiercly passionate about children's literature and DO NOT plan on giving this part of my life up, but I just wonder what it would be like to do something different for a while?
