For now, I'm very excited about the next chapter in my life. I start my new job in a weeks time and I can't wait. I can't wait to have prospects, and I can't wait to meet new people and try new things and to develop a new love and a new pride for another profession! I am very nervous but I know it will be great when I get used to the place.
A few days ago I completed reading the book 'If you have to cry go outside; and other things your mother never told you' by Kelly Cutrone. I'm not sure what to make of it yet, I still haven't made my mind up. It obviously must have had some sort of impression on me as I finished the book and I have learnt a little from it. However, I also feel that it was complete, self indulgent drivel. I suppose I knew that the book was going to be a sort of 'guide' to make it in a competetive industry and she was going to be advising the reader based on her experiences, that being said it was rather 'blah, blah, blah, look at me, I have lots of money'.....
hmmmm....maybe Im being a little harsh, or jealous even, she almost had me when she talked so much about how hard she worked to get where she is now after getting divorced, being addicted to drugs and being made homeless but the she started talking about 'The mother spirit" etc... I can't do all that stuff. Its great if you are spiritualistic, but that's just not me, the only person I believe in is myself and I'm the only one who can do something about my life.
This week I have started reading 'The Mumpreneur Diaries - Business, babies or bust, one mother of a year' by Mosey Jones
Now this book, is a lot more interesting. I can relate to it entirely and I am thoroughly enjoying reading about the humour involved in trying to raise children, keep a job and enjoy it, and keep a husband when you're struggling with cash and are so desperate to follow your dreams. The book is realistic, it is hilarious and clever and so blunt and to the point;No Bullshit - that's were Kelly Cutrone went wrong. Anyway, Im halfway through this one and I'll let you know how it goes. Im loving reading it!
No Arty adventures this week as of yet, just a few little doodles. I have plans for certain work but Im very busy at the moment and just enjoying spending time with my beautiful son before having to return to work.
My dad is coming home (yay!) on Wednesday and I haven't seen him in over two years, as you know he is an artist too and we have discussed maybe doing a little project together while he is here.
