Working Late again

I've really been putting in the hours with work lately. I'm so desparate to keep ontop of things and not loose it over the summer. I made this LO a while ago and haven't blogged it yet. It was a colorcombo challenge Orange, baby pink, grey and white. Ade took this photo about 3 yrs ago working a summers evening on tableplans. My title was being sung to me in my head by Dolly P, when I was creating this LO.
They story behind this LO is basically....working 9-5...I wish. People just don't appreaciate or understand the hours you have to put in when you work for yourself. People (that's friends and family) just call for a chat or pop in and just think of you being at home....they never take your work seriously. I would love to be able to close the doors on my work sometimes but at the same time, I so proud of what I have achieved.

And here is a card I made this evening. We went for a lovely long walk up the common this morning. It felt so spring like.
Bex launched a challenge to use Gems on a card this week, so that's what I've done.
I've used all the bits and pieces from Sassy Crafts to make this card.
Need to pack up some more orders now ready to go to the postie after school drop off tomorrow.
Nite xx

And there's me just having interrupted you AGAIN with a phone call!! *blush* Love your LO, it's good to have the honest journaling and you'll find that fascinating to look back on one day when you're retired and bored! :O)

You certainly work hard, Lis, with fantastic results. I could feel your thoughts coming through your LO - you deserve your job to be taken seriously. Btw, I don't think you'll ever be retired and bored! x
