Oh hi! A rare picture of me for this post because this is a tricky message for me to share. (Also – there are NO PICTURES OF ME ANYMORE! My entire phone is my kids and my husband 🤔) But here’s why I’m sharing this photo: I’ve decided it’s time for a long shop break. Little Goldie the shop will be closed until mid October 2017.
I should have taken a break when my baby was born, really, but I didn’t, and now I’m exhausted. Sammy’s six-months-old and he hasn’t been the easiest baby(!). I get to the end of some days realising I’ve done nothing well: the kids, work, me. And I start each broken night’s sleep far too late so I can catch up on things. (But, in the meantime, if there’s a product you really want just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
I considered closing or selling Little Goldie, but I don’t feel ready for such a final goodbye, so I’m taking a six month break. I’ll open again in October, just in time for Christmas, giving me time to decide how I’m going to grow and change it.
I hope you keep following along for updates, the blog will still be running to share some stories and my favourite products.
I am so grateful for all your support so far! I mean, what’s a shop without customers?! It’s like a shoe without feet, or chocolate without someone to eat it… y’know: not good. Okay the sleep deprivation has clearly hit me so I’ll sign off for now!
