I have decided that I need a new project.
We have started the whole 'buying an office-and-flat combo' thing, which will result in moving the office out of the front bedroom. This is good, as it will mean that we can close the door on work at the end of the day and come home. And I will no longer need to be up and dressed by the time R comes in in the morning. Not that it bothers either of us, but I feel that I need to have some standards, as otherwise somehow my mother will find out that I am regularly still in my dressing-gown at 10.30 am with a man who is not my husband in the house, and give me a bollocking*.
We are also planning on taking on more staff in the not-too-distant-future, so it's a necessary step.
Of course, the downside to this is that I will no longer be able to spend all day coding in my pajamas.
However, this will give us two spare bedrooms.
We are going to rent them out and use the money to pay off our mortgage early.
I am also going to try to throw myself in to growing the business. And I have a couple of children's short stories on the go that I'd like to finish and see if I can find a publisher for.
*Unlikely actually. The bollocking, not her finding out by some kind of parental ESP.
