Perhaps it's a bit of a delayed reaction to everything going on in the world (and all the associated uncertainties) or perhaps trying to navigate the EI system for the first time (trying not to things mess up my maternity leave in July) while the rest of Canada is also trying to contact service Can. with their own questions and concerns  Consequently I've been stress… Everything Goes, Dares, Anxiety, To Go, Maternity, At Least, Canada, Wool, This Or That Questions

Another available sock blank! . ...ok...so although I was fully intending on launching an online sales platform before the new year (and even started working on it...) life has gotten in the way. I've been really struggling to get anything at all done  and have been under the weather for a while now. It's nothing terrible but I don't forsee these circumstances letting up in the  near future. I'm going to be kind to myself and set up the sales platform once I am feeling better.
