|Old desk complete with big Mac and Dalek|
This week I left my day job. I enjoyed the last two years, it could be said that it's the best job - or at least the best boss - I ever had, and it was very sad to leave him and my lovely collegues some of whom were into sewing!. Can you see the pile of books over on the far side of the desk? They were my leaving pressie, 3 beautiful corsetry books, and also the Dita von Teese "Art of Burlesque" book. Lots of inspiration in there!
Last time I left a day job was 4 years ago when I had what I thought was a perfect job - the job I always wanted, but unfortunately, it transpired, it came with the worst boss in the world. Avery nasty piece of work, universally despised by all who meet her, but in a position of power and after 4 years of being bullied by her to the point where she made it impossible for me to do my job, I was unable to work, physically or mentally, and it took a long time for me to recover... I am not sure if I am fully recovered even now!
Happily, things are VERY different this time round and very very exciting! I have a whole new purpose and direction, everything seems to have fallen right into place as if it was all meant to be, and when I returned home from my last day at 'work', I received my first signed client contract and deposit - so I know it's REAL! My client is a bride, and I am ridiculously excited to be working with her.
|New work mate. Good company, doesn't say alot|
So.... It's full steam ahead with Sew Curvy for which I have big plans, book writing and corset making ... with lots of sowing and growing in my spare time.
I feel like it's going to be a good summer.
