This week I went back to work after christmas (I know there has been a bit of funny business on twitter from people saying people shouldn’t moan because they have worked over christmas) but this week has been rather tiring, its always good to get back into a routine, I have been napping like a crazy cat though. I do get asked a lot buy people how I fit so much into my day (sometimes i do sometimes i dont), recently I have been taking it a lot easier then normal I think the relaxing christmas I have had has been really hard to get over, but my brain is slowly adjusting to the fact it is january.
Typical Working Day
I normally wake up at 5.30 am ,be at work for 7: 30 am , chase children around and teach until 2:45 pm i often take my orders with me to work and then I walk to the post office and get my orders sent out as soon as possible. Once I am home, i sit down with mum for a quick chat and a cuppa, and then I head to my studio and work on what ever is outstanding today is was tattoo men stickers, I often do this until about 5 pm and then from there I update my etsy shop, email people and spend a few minutes stalking people on twitter ( totally the truth) I have dinner hang out with the family for a bit ( or I go out with friends for a few drinks or people from work) but if i have orders i turn into a recluse ha! thats my typical working day.
Typical work from home day
I will often get up at 6:30 am, have breakfast, find out what mum needs help with during the day. I often spend the morning packaging orders and working through my emails I do this with a massive mug of tea, and then its a lovely trip to my local post office to say hello to favourite post office worker, I do a little bit of shopping for mum. Once I am home i paint until about 5 pm leave the studio in a tip and then make dinner and chill with the family until about 8 pm whilst everyone else is getting ready for the next working day I stay up until about 11pm working on painting and tattoo men drawings, through out the day I work through emails and twitter. You can see what I am up to through out the day via my instagram _ellamasters_
So thats both my type of days summed up into a little paragraph. Whats your typical day like?
