Just to let you all know officially that I will be back working with Create and Craft from the later part of July onwards… with probably two shows on the 25th. It will take me a little while to settle back in with the huge numbers and constant new products as, having been ‘away’ from it all for two years, it takes some adjusting!
I am very grateful to Create and Craft for being so understanding about my life decision to put caring for my parents above work and I have to say I don’t regret a moment of it, much as I missed everyone in TV land! Once my mother’s dementia gathered speed it was heartbreaking helping them live through it, but I am probably talking to a mass of other carers and many of you know how it feels. Now they are both at peace…. they died within 72 hours of each other, that really is ’till death do us part’ after 55 years or more together.
To launch my re-appearance on the channel, a film crew came down here last week, lovely guys and so, so very patient! You will probably be seeing the fruits of their labour as a little promo films and pieces on the website. They even filmed and interviewed all the staff which was either ‘terrifying’ or ‘good fun’ depending on who you speak to, so you can have a sneak preview of Pat’s desk or Maggie’s packing area!
Here are some shots we took of them shooting us, so to speak … See you all soon! Smiles, Joanna.
