so many things happened in the meantime. as many of you know (following my feed over on ig) the biggest change in my life arrived on the 23rd of March, my son Tommaso was born. he completely took over my life in the good and not so good way, I’m not sure I was prepared for it, but probably you never areMy art and making slowed down quite a lot. At first I was pretty confident I could keep running my business while caring for my baby, but with practically no help around me (my partner works almost everyday and my family lives far from us) I understood I was too much optimistic. I only recently came to term with the fact that I can’t work until I can put Tommaso in childcare next September. This was very hard on me at first, but I know it’s going to be ok in the long run. My job was paying part of the rent and expenses and it is my passion, stop working means less money for us and a bit of sadness for me. My shop is still open because I’m able to ship items to you and I’m making new things (very slowly) when I have time, but I’m not working full time, or even part time really.
But please don’t judge me, I love Tommaso and absolutely love to spend every minute of my days with him. We go for long walks together up on the hills behind my village or for shorter ones along the lakeshore. Lately I’ve started bringing him to the local playground too and he loves it. He’s a very smiley happy boy, he’s teaching me so much, I just couldn’t believe it was possible.
Right, I need to go and prepare his meal now, leaving you with a pic of him I took the other day while he was patiently waiting for breakfast. Hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday filled with anything you love.
