THE WEDDING

It's been 10 whole months since our wedding day. It feels like longer, not because our marriage is dragging, but because so much has happened since then. We went to Tanzania and Zanzibar on our honeymoom, got a puppy, went to my sister's wedding in Australia and moved 2 hours north to a converted barn in Shropshire from our little terraced house in the centre of Bristol. I wrote before about how I found organising the wedding stressful, and it wasn't the actually arranging that was problematic for me, but the anxiety that came with everything. I won't go into...

THE 5 BEST THINGS I DID FOR MY BUSINESS: PART 2

WE'RE WINGING IT, AND THAT'S OKAY

I met someone recently who had followed me online for a while, and assumed Little Nell was far bigger than it is. They thought I had staff, and that I was a proper professional, with a real studio (not a pokey attic with a bit of damp). I laughed, the thought genuinely amused me. But when I thought about it, I'm guilty of trying to portray that online, not all the time, but definitely some of the time. I always refer to Little Nell as 'we' because I finding saying 'I' a bit odd (I am not my business), and...
