Thank goodness.  Friday is finally here. I don't know why, but this week has been excruciatingly long...

Thanks to everyone who commented on my Baby Fever post.  So many of you had interesting opinions and thoughts on the subject.  Lots of you made me laugh, and I have to admit, a couple of comments about motherhood brought a tear to my eye!  To be completely honest, that open, non-judgmental conversation really kind of flicked a switch for me.  I am still not 100% sure I'm Mom Material, but I think I'm a little warmer to the idea.  Still just one! I don't care what anyone says!

Dan's new job is going really well.  Last night he was at a training session, which made for a long day for him, but I am glad he is in a position where he gets to expand his skills.  He works like a mad man, 6 days one week, 5 days the next, and so on.  It's not an easy job, being a mechanic, but I am very proud of his trade.  It's nice to have a guy around who can fix something... now, if he could just get to the oil change in our car, and investigate that clunking noise in the passenger side wheel, that'd be great!

My day job is... going.  I have been having a very 'trying' time there recently.  I'll just leave it at that. I'm having some internal conflict about this job.  On one hand, it provides a stable income.  On the other hand, it makes me put Ohhh Lulu to the side.  On one hand, I am afraid that Ohhh Lulu wouldn't provide enough income for Dan and I. On the other hand, if I don't give it a try, I'll never know if I might succeed.  I am the worlds worst decision maker. You know, I wish life came with an Undo Button.  Then we could make potentially risky decisions, and if they don't work out, just start over again.

This weekend I have a ton of sewing to do, I am feeling really behind on orders again (I'm sorry!), but I am going to fit in two small things that I want to do.  Firstly, I want to go for a walk in the woods and see the fall colours. The trees are just starting to change, but some are already a fiery shades of red, orange and yellow.  Secondly,  I bought a meter of the most luscious red velvet that is going to make a pretty, wintery lingerie set.  I love being able to make the things I see in my mind come to life, there is just something so fulfilling about that.


  1. I'm over the moon for you Sarah, I think ditching the day job is a good move...think how much more time you'll have to promote Ohhh Lulu and to make your gorgeous designs. I don't think you'll need an undo button you know, I've only ever heard and read positive things about your business and your designs are really, very special! Good luck with it all, I'm sure you'll keep us updated. Oh and if you can share a picture of your walk in the woods that would be great, we don't get as many lovely autumn colours here in the UK!

  2. Maybe you can do something like take a sabbatical for one month, and try it out?
    I am a big advocate for trying something to see how it goes :D
    I think you can make Ohhh Lulu work, it will just take a lot of time and effort on your half... and the big jump is definitely scary. But you know, it doesn't hurt to give it a good try :)

  3. I'm a big fan of not being miserable, so I say you should go for it and quit the day job. There are so many uncertainties in life, it's true, but I think you'll be far more successful (and happier) if you focus on your blog and sewing creations. The money situation may be painful at first, but it won't always be that way. Good luck (with whatever you choose to do)!

  4. You could do what I did... Have one baby, then wait 19years and have the second one!
    Fingers crossed you can ditch the day job and all works out well for you.
