Hello lovelies, I haven't been around for while... with so much is happening in my 'real life' it's been a struggle to update my blog and visit yours.
I've also been working super hard to update my online graphic design portfolio. I've picked up quite a few freelance jobs since the end of last year. It feels great to work again and I really hope I continue to find work as a freelancer. The thought of returning to work in an advertising or design agency sends shivers up my spine. It's all about late nights and working weekends and I am so over that!
We've also been house hunting. Ugh. It's been awful. With our tiny budget we can only afford a 'renovator's dream' but the places we've seen have been more like a demolisher's dream! The prices are unbelievable and with so many awful stories in the South African news at the moment, I have wondered if it is a good idea to invest here. I'm in no rush to leave but still... it's worrying, and these days Edinburgh (where Mr Hello Olive and I lived for a chunk of time) has been on my mind more and more lately.
Well, on that note I'm really hoping that I'll have more time for this space, my Etsy shop and to pop in more regularly to visit your blogs. Hope you all have amazing weekends and 'see' you soon!
