I spent 6 days in Ipswich away from my lovely children but enjoying the delights of a hotel cleaning fairy. I just wish I could have met her because I may have packed her in my suitcase and taken her home to sort out my house. It was such a luxury to leave the room in a small mess and come back to find it immaculate.
But I managed to achieve the status of 'Antenatal Educator'. Which was fabulous news as I already had ladies booked in for my first course. I have now taught 3 weeks of classes in two venues and it feels brilliant. I am loving every minute of it. Can't wait to hear some positive birth stories now from the ladies in the classes. And as my first mum is due in 6 weeks time, I may not have too long to wait.
I also, with the help of my husband, children and two lovely friends, ran my first Baby and Children's Market, with 21 stalls and 120 visitors on the day. Everyone seemed happy and I was just so relieved that it all came together and worked. A lot of hard work but worth it on the day. Next one is just over a month away and I have started working on the advertising and promoting this week.
The other development is that I now have my own website up and running. It has taken a bit longer than I wanted as I started it in August but having practically scrapped the original and started again, I have now published it. Got to work out how to get up the Google rankings now and get some links to the site. On my New Year to-do list! If you fancy a look, the website address is www.yourbabyandyou.co.uk
I have also had my five minutes of fame with a lovely article in the local paper (http://www.thisisexeter.co.uk/
I can't believe how my life has changed so much and how lucky that I am to be running businesses that I totally believe in as I can help people to have positive births and provide a way to sell and buy baby goods. I just have lots more ideas so we will see how 2012 pans out :)
