I have been asking myself this all morning – Why would I think I have anything interesting to say? Why would anyone else want to read my ‘Nanny’ thoughts?
Honestly now, have you ever made a decision and then wondered why? I’m sure we all have at some time or other but then I ask why am I doing this now?
Well the answer is probably easy to work out – I have recently joined an incredible group of women in The Sewing Library – mind you, not many of them are grandmothers!! but they have welcomed me and made me feel ‘incredible’ too!!
The Sewing Library is like a big umbrella with each spoke leading us out to another area of learning and wonder!!
I have always loved the way that women can give so much to each other – sure you will get the odd bitch – we have all met them but, generally I have found women to be very generous in spirit, and this is demonstrated each and every day in TSL. Just like an umbrella protects us from the rain or sun, TSL gives us a ‘protected’ place to share our crafting efforts : problems, solutions, and creations safe in the knowledge that like-minded women are sharing the brolly space.
Many of these women are busy young Mums who just happen to be running successful businesses from home, and they have inspired me to try my own venture: Nannycraft4u.
These ventures are life changing and challenging to me – I have been out of the workforce for about 18 years (medically retired following a MVA but that is another story…) and hence I have lost contact with technology, suffered a loss of confidence and a battering of my self worth. ‘Meeting’ the girls at TSL has given me a real boost and with their encouragement and support, I am becoming a hip,trendy,techno head Nanny!! :/ well would you believe, I ‘m in a state of metamorphosis?? – will I emerge as a beautiful butterfly or fly at the light as a big old moth??
Time will tell!!! But one thing will always remain constant – I am a Nanny to 6 beautiful grandchildren – anything else is a bonus!!
Until next time
