Lunchtime! I love this bit of my day, I get to sit and have lunch with my little one and catch up on what he has been up to, which generally amounts to a lot of singing, throwing things and dribbling.
At the moment I am working on our submission of figures for our yearly Planet Mark review. Last year they calculated our carbon footprint and set us targets to reduce our footprint over the year, and this is the nerve-racking bit to see if we have reached our goals! They then set us targets for the coming year which is a great way to focus us on the mission ahead.
By this time of the day I like to just go into creative mode, whether that is thinking about new product development or taking photos and videos for our social accounts. I have always been a crafter so it is lovely to still have this as part of my role in the company.
This is the end of my work day. Tea and biscuit time, a cuddle with my cheeky little boy, and a download of the day between Tom and I to make sure we have all bases covered.
Love Fran x
I hope this helps provide a little insight into what owning a small business (and having a family!) is like. It has taken a few years of extremely hard work and a team of wonderful people to get to where we are today, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
