first time

Well this is my first Blog. It is the last day of half term and i am still working on getting my website correctly working. It is so hard when my computer knowledge is so poor, however it will come good eventually. I took January off to re-evaluate life but have discovered that it takes longer than one month to really achieve a complete overhaul. So I have put certain aspects of my life into focus, firstly my fitness and secondly my direction in work. I have found it hard to prioritise but will start with these two things and see how it goes.
The biggest problem has been painting all day one is sitting down and then all the other jobs in the house and mum jobs are all done in a frenetic spasm at the end of the day leaving little time for keep fit. So i have been trying to organise my day to fit the 'fit' in, so far organising this is a bit unorganised but I think I have sorted out a rough routine. The thing for me to realise is that i will never be in a routine so now i know this I can have a hit list of things to do in a day and tick them off as they get done and they can be in any order at all. This seems to work. Work direction has been tricky, being a painter is not the most profitable business to be in so attending to this is my priority, also doing this without compromising the art. My plan is to concentrate on cards and see how this pans out. So today i have delivered paintings and prints to a friend to deliver to the Baron Art Gallery in Holt, I have been to the gym and am now going to take my son to a party and visit the printers with my cartoon card designs, it's a start.
