Those people who know me well will know that I have struggled at the thought of turning 50. In fact I even wrote a daily blog about it! 198 days of agony at turning 50 – well interspersed with funny stories and news items. I found it totally therapeutic and incredibly thought provoking. Yes it was a chore in many ways and yet when I stopped writing it, I found that I missed it.
Anyway let’s get back to the blog in hand. I was worried about turning 50. It’s a big number after all. And it made me think – wow I’ve still got another 20 years of working life ahead of me. Plus I realised that it coincided with me finding myself again. Strange to say but I’d put my children and my family first for 17 years. I realised it was time for me again. And the more I thought about it, the more it coincided with opening a boutique.
I’ve always liked shoes. Handbags. Jewellery. Accessories. And of course clothes. Well I am a woman after all!
And yet we already have those where I live and I didn’t really want to compete with those shops.
Well we don’t have shoes.
And tights. Yes tights!
