The View Challenge: October

Hello Lucky Snappers.

Thank you to Anne and Kathi and Lynne for having my back and posting when I couldn't. Opening the new store has been all consuming and I have been unable to be a real person, I have not looked after my children properly myself, have had my Mum do it for me. My first priority has been to get back to them and then my friends and now getting back to a bit of normal! I think it will still consume me for another 4 weeks and then hopefully back to a normal operation. I sure miss my part-time work and feel very sad that I couldn't afford to stay part-time. Hey-ho, make the best of what you have, are and can be.

On top of the new store drama, we have had a new kitchen installed at home and it has been a disaster with timing, what was promised to be a 6 day job stretching to 8 days has taken a month! So I have been dealing with a new store and myriad refrigeration problems and also chaos at home. It has been a very trying time and I am so relieved that it is all coming together now, but I can see it being another 4 weeks of difficulty.

Anyway, let's see your view please. I am posting this from work as again there was a refrigeration problem and I have had 3 hours sleep! I will post the linky tonight when I get home, if I get home lol xxx

Edited:
Thanks Anne for posting the linky, I didn't get home until late and really only enough energy for bed. I now have to go early again this morning...when will it settle down???!!! Lol, my deputy is back from his holiday now so we have a few days and then my holiday, thank goodness.

Here is a couple of shots from the coast path, I was so tired that day that we just walked to the coast path and enjoyed the views. This is at Morte Point Lighthouse.

  5. Hello ladies!
    Welcome October!
    I am glad of a new week and a new challenge!
    Read your comments and have fun - you are very sweet ladies!
    I think we are doing very well with the tasks!
    We have our challenge - exactly as we wanted - a lot of freedom and spirit. Without competition! Without racing!
    Without single winner!
    We all win good mood.
    We have our cyber - as said Lynne - conversation and connections.
    I'm curious about your new posts!
    Wish you health and enjoyable time!
