Getting up and dressed

It officially starts today. My four day week. The new blog is finding it's feet with the help of my husband and all the technical stuff is slowly sinking in pixel by pixel. So while all that unfolds I thought I would pick out some Betty from Mad Men style clothes to keep me focused on getting up and dressed even though I am staying home. All of the above are from Lk Bennett's spring/summer collection.

Dean is in NYC at the moment and although I need help with bigger tasks, I have achieved a few baby steps on my own today. The link for the Face Book page is now in the side bar here with my new E-mail address too. And I have posted the below video for anyone stuck indoors peering out at what seems to be a very dark sky for a spring day. So, tap shoes at the ready, lets get up.

Last week I worked 4 days and it made such a huge difference! I'm about to do the opposite - go back to work full-time after some time off. But I'm hoping I can be full-time self-employed soon. Am excited about your new opportunities. By the way, I bought Company magazine - what a great feature!

Love the outfits but I'm more of a Joan than a Betty (at least on the inside). Missed last night's episode due to horrible sickness bug. I work 3 days proper work and probably a day on my extra-curriculars. The proper work is going to stop soon and I'm looking forward to devoting lots more time to the stuff I love. Have fun and enjoy your extra time!

I love it! Thank you for that! I wanted to introduce you to a favorite blog of mine http://www.designtrackmind.com/. She also has a website for her interior design business based in Newton MA at www.melissagulley.com . I think you might like it because you both have fabulous taste.
