This evening Michael and I had dinner with Monika and Adam who are Godemiche. We spent a wonderful few hours talking business whilst their beautiful and hilarious children roamed around playing. It was a lovely evening spent with lovely people who I feel very happy to be able to call my friends.
When we got back to our hotel I sent off a piece of commissioned work I finished this morning to a client whom I am hoping is also going to agree to a second regular contribution from me.
Then I got a DM from a friend and someone in the sex positive blogging community about a new project they are working on. It is something they have discussed with me over the last few months asking advice and using me as a sounding board for their idea. I am SO frigging excited about this project and I wish I could tell you what it is but it is not quite at that stage yet. However I will say that I think it has potential to be of huge benefit to many of us in this community and possibly/maybe add another revenue stream for some of us.
While I was sitting here checking my emails and exchanging DM’s about this project after such a lovely day I just realised what a lucky person I am. It has taken me many years to get to this place where I can say I have a career. In fact I even feel a bit silly writing that sentence because it just seems way beyond me. I am not that woman, I am the type of woman who has a job not a career and yet here I am and despite the fact that I still have a huge nagging imposter syndrome issue going on I am using that sentence. Trying it on for size if you like and trying really hard not to throw it back into the metaphorically cupboard where it has been lurking waiting for someone much more worthy than me to pick it up.
I am not even sure why I writing this piece to be honest but I was laying on our beautiful four-poster bed (we are having a couple of nights in a lovely hotel as a special treat) with my husband naked beside me working away on some technical problem and I just felt really fucking lucky to have somehow managed to end up in this place, both physically and professionally, with this amazing man by my side and just in case today was not cool enough already tomorrow we are going to be making some dildos with Monika.
But first this bed is calling to me…
