Well, not fail, exactly, but my big exciting thing is not happening after all, but purely because my sensible gene kicked in at long last.
It WAS going to be…a workshop! A shop unit just around the corner from the flat came up for rent and it was so bargainous that I had somehow concocted in my head that I could rent it as a workshop space and have somewhere to pack up orders, store stuff etc.
This was all before Christmas, so I had to wait until after the new year holidays were over to hear back from the letting agent but once he got in touch, I was there the very next morning to view it.
Once we trudged the 2 minutes through the snow to it, I realised it was actually twice the size I thought it was going to be. Which made it even more of a bargain. For at least a few hours, I was giddy with the excitement of it being big enough to be a workshop, storage room AND maybe even a shop. ..
But common sense has prevailed and I’ve decided that whilst it is a great opportunity, for me to do it justice, I couldn’t do it now whilst holding down a full-time job. So here’s hoping it’s still available this time next year!
Sorry for leading everyone on with my promise of excitement but I hope I can make up for it in some other way later in the year!
