Update on market stuff.
We’ve been running Ferrybank Market at the Celebrating Age Centre weekly for the past month. While I may have been rather optimistic in Hamilton’s pick up of the market, I couldn’t have expected it to be THIS hard. I blame the weather. So, we’re taking it back to being held on the first Saturday of each month (starting on July 2nd). Sadly it means no market in June. To make up for it we may run a few special events coming up by the end of the year, so stay tuned on our facebook page.
Update on Election stuff
Most of you will know, I recently made the decision to “wind up” Teacup and Saucer – which for the last three years has been “what I did” (buying and selling vintage). I don’t love it the way I used to and so it’s time for a change. In the coming months, I will be beginning a campaign as a Hamilton West candidate in the Hamilton City Council elections.
It’s an exciting time – though scary… I have a WHOLE heap of learning to do before then, on “how things work” – what everyone really wants to see happen (or not happen) in the city and of course develop myself personally – quickly.
I took the first step on that note today, by contacting Toastmasters. I don’t know what to expect at the first meeting – but think it will be of benefit so I’ll check it out. Something I am acutely aware of is that I’m not a confident or persuasive orator – and it takes me a good hour to get my point across…. I have to work on that. And perfect my “Boss voice”.
That’s enough for now – It was supposed to be a quick update on the market.
