A-plus Products

I cannot believe it. Have I been that busy I haven't written in my diary for THAT long!!?? What a shame really. It means that lots has been happening and I haven't written about it.

Yes, lots has been happening. I recovered and realised - I CAN do (almost) anything. The things I cannot do is only because I haven't tried- or never occurred to me I needed to learn how to do them, or never needed them.

So, what CAN I do. I can teach. I can write. I am creative, I can stay focussed ( am working on that skill-getting better all the time).

Then it was a matter of saying: what do I WANT to do with what I can do. I want to work independantly, from home and at my own pace.

So, I thought, go design your future - well, my working future that is. The future that entails earning my keep financially. Not only to be co-responsible for the day to day running of our lives and home but also to save for the trips to the children and be able to keep supporting that wonderful initiative- Travelight/ Teen Challenge.

I am enthusiastic, keen as mustard. I need to concentrate especially in this early stage, as one only makes one good impression- that is what makes or breaks a venture. is in business folks.

Watch this space. It is a project continually in development

Ideas.... they just keep on coming

I have started on a new project. After my disappointment over a business veture that didn't happen, I regrouped, prayed and sought advice.

I listed my talents, competences and likes and realised that being creative, self reliant and could plan well that there could just be an activity for me as Photo Album creator and organiser.

I have been making digital photo albums since 2005. Started when it first became fashionable. I have grown with the changes in the software and feel confident I have the necessary skills to make a good go of this new venture. It is also something I can keep doing ( even after my 65th year) and hopefully be successful enough so I can manage to save up a reasonable pension and visit my children and grandchildren regularly.

The past 10  days or so I have been delving more deeply into the possibilities, the necessary organisational issues and finding out how many i's I need to dot! I already have a website ( for which I pay a reasonable sum) and this is in the throws of being organised on a professional manor to entice, and inform potential customers of my services, which include the making of PP presentations and Workshops in making albums.

I am excited, enthusiastic and keen as mustard. It has taken me a while to put the 'pot issue'  behind me. Now that I have rid myself of the useless weight I feel ready to tackle this venture with renewed energy.

Keep watching this space.
