No woman is an island

I might be a “Sole Trader” but no woman can do everything, all the time. Over the years I have learned to look for help when I need it, freeing myself up to do the things I’m good at – like writing, taking photographs, researching etc.


There’s Maria who cuts my hair short and stops my inner curly Shirley from emerging. There’s Becca who helps me stay fit and strong and various osteopaths, physios and massage therapists who have kept me supple over the years. Husband of my heart, who believes in me even when my self-belief wavers, and Dan who understands only too well the emotional ups and downs of being in a creative industry. If I need something technical explaining in a way I’ll understand, I turn to Ben. Beth is my arbiter of good taste and Katy is my calming influence. Jonathan, my accountant and Zara, my book-keeper both bring me back down to earth on a regular basis. Then there’s Chris, my Framer, who creates such beautiful products for my clients and is always open to my ideas. And my friends and collaborators in the industry, both in real life and in the internet world. My friends and family in the real world, who encourage and support me in so many ways and finally, last but by no means least, all the people who consider my work worth some of their hard-earned money, and who make it possible for me to do what I do.

That’s a whole load of thankfulness for Day 10!
