Flower Focus after Frustration
I am putting myself under pressure because at the moment I see making things from home as the only way of generating extra income. I have already missed the opportunity to make things for Valentine's Day and at this rate the spring will be over too. To be honest I feel as though I am in a blind panic as yet again time is running away with me.
Last week I contacted a courtyard cafe to find out if they had any job opportunities. I saw myself either helping out in the kitchen or generally clearing up as I have no experience of working in the hospitality industry. I was stunned when I received an email to say that they were looking for staff and would I like to go in for a chat. I turned up ahead of time on the day to be told that the woman I was meeting was unable to come as her young boy was sick. These things happen so I was happy to meet her 'deputy' who informed me that the only opportunity they had was for weekend work only. She was unable to tell me the hours of work or the rate of pay so it really was a wasted journey.
So, instead of being mucked around by people, twice in the last few months, I feel I really must get my act together and get making and working for myself. At the moment, it is not an option. It is a necessity.
