The Sunday R&R

Morning friends, how are we all this fine Sunday morning?  Over drinks on Friday I was discussing blogging with a close friend of mine, discussing the FWS blogging schedule and The Sunday R&R.  I remember the first edition, when Sunday was a time during my blogging week to rest and relax, catch up with friends and life in general.  But as we talked I realised that Sunday has just become a regular part of my working week.

In fact I realised that there is no working week, no allotted period of down time and no yin to my blogging yang. I would like to sit here and write about the balance that is needed when driving a small business, that you need other creative stimuli etc.  But it would not be the truth.  Balance is wonderful and something that I am sure comes with a level of success where outsourcing of job roles becomes viable.

But for all the other small business owners working this Sunday, who are working their fabulous socks off to turn their dreams into reality – I salute you!

And to all the fabulous brides to be, who are working their socks off planning their weddings, lets crack on with The Sunday R&R.  On Monday we started off with a French Riviera wedding that is packed with family and friends, wonderful food and beverages and fun exudes through the couples’ big day. Read full wedding on the French Riviera with family, festivities and fun!
