Hurray! The web shop is up and running. Have a look, tell me what you think! I'm sooooo excited I think I might pee myself!

The gorgeous art work is by Bob Molesworth, the superb artist responsible for Tokyo Gonzo. I am forever in his debt - it is truly beautiful - thank you Bob.

An apology...

I'm so so sorry I haven't blogged for so long. This little page has been neglected whilst I have been attending to other things. I have struggled with whether I should blog about what those other things are, and after much thought have decided that yes, I will write about it, a little, anyway. 'Cos I am human, and as much as this blog was supposed to be a  business tool, it has become increasingly apparent to me that my business actually IS my life, and separating the two is damn near impossible.

So the truth is, I have been away attending to my private life - I don't want to go into any huge detail but will say that ladies, Cosmopolitan got it WRONG all those years ago. YOU CANNOT HAVE IT ALL!

Sorry to be so bleak, but the sad truth (for me anyway) is  - fantastic kids + gorgeous home + successful business + happy marriage = well, it doesn't...  Take the last bit out, and thats where I am at the moment. I'll keep you posted on how it goes, whether I can make the equation balance. *sigh* It feels unlikely at the moment, but... anyway, onwards and upwards! (My eternal optimism, contrasting with my dark, cynical inner psyche even pisses me off at times like this!)

I would like to draw your attention to one of the things that has helped me get through the evenings after the kids have gone to bed without feeling quite as lonely as i might, and even raising a (dare I say it?) smile, and that is.... 30 Rock!!!

What a fab, fab, FAB show. Tina Fey, I love you and salute you and I want you to be my best friend. Although I might not want you to be around when we go out, cos the slightly geeky, speccy, pop culture obsessed sad, lonely control freak is a role I generally tend to take in my little group of chums, and I'm not sure that there really is room for two of us. Besides, you are soooooo much funnier than me, and the whole sparkling personality thing is kind of all I'm clinging to these days...

Love you, Tina. You are my best friend right now - the fab girl friend that I have distracting me from my life every evening in nice short 20 minute bursts, so I can tune in, turn on and zone out from my life without stretching my painfully short attention span. Thank you for being there. You're helping to put me back together. Slowly, episode by episode. Sometimes 3 in one night, sometimes none for days, cos thats how things are at the moment.

So here is a little taster for those of you that haven't seen it.

Now go out and buy the box sets!
