Learning to Prioritise

Sometimes it is hard to prioritise time, well it is for me. Especially since leaving full time work, each day is different. Trying to keep up to date with what’s happening each day can become exhausting. But it is so important, I hate being late and so I find myself constantly checking my calendar to make sure I have everything in. If anything gets missed being put into my diary it can lead to chaos. But it is more important than ever to remind other people I can’t always do things without notice. It can be frustrating sometimes when people think you can do things at short notice and don’t understand your already booked up. I think that is why sometimes I miss my daily post here; I often give myself the least time to get things done. I still find it hard to prioritise my work above being a mother and wife. I was really happy this week to go and see a lovely exhibition of some work made by  Tina Dempsey at The Harris Museum and Art Gallery , Preston.  I was lucky enough to work alongside Tina in 2018 , and I allowed her infectious colour and pattern to influence me in 20.11.19. Other pages this week have been influenced by the leftovers of other making happening in my workspace in preparation for my new studio move and open day on the 5th December at Higherford Mill.   https://www.instagram.com/p/B4SkHXADvyz/
