[VLOG] How I Juggle Renovating my House and Run my Online Business at the Same Time


Hi ya! It’s Lucy and normally you see me
with a pretty pink backdrop and lots of branding but actually today, as for the
last six months or so, we have been renovating our house and so again we’re
having to pack up everything, so I’ve kind of put everything into the spare
room so it’s completely crazy. All the furniture as you can see behind
me and it’s just oh! It’s so much going on. Lots of craziness. We’re doing the
floor downstairs and it means that this is almost like the end of, we broken it
absences stages and this is the end of stage one, but it still feels really
painful. There’s still masses to do but I just wanted to share that you know,
sometimes life isn’t perfect and sometimes you know even when you’ve got
makeup on or whatever, some red lipstick, actually it’s it’s a bit crazy and so
you know, we have been kind of living this way for the last six months we had
to move out into an Airbnb and we thought we’d be in the Airbnb just a
few, we just thought we’d be there a few weeks but anyway ended up being much
much longer. We had a bit of a crazy Airbnb and with a crazy lady, so we had to
move to another Airbnb, so it’s been like non-stop and of course this is
doing it with like a three-year-old in tow and and just trying to juggle the
builders and everything else. Whenever I’ve done house renovation
before, I’ve always done it. Ohh I’m juggling everything everywhere.
I’ve always done it that it’s it’s about other houses that I’m not living it and
this was the first time that I’ve actually done a house where I’m living
in it too and so that’s why it’s been so much more chaotic that’s why it’s
been so much more difficult to do. And I definitely say if you are thinking about
renovating your house, be in a space where you can kind of block off a little
bit to keep your sanity and your identity, so you know, I’m an introvert
but I love and I’m a real homebody so make sure that your home stays your
castle, stays the thing that you love rather than it being completely chaotic.
I just begged my husband earlier but I was to get out of bed. I was literally
having to sort of climb to the end of the bed and leap over the railings and
so actually we’ve just moved things around and it’s just were able to move
and function because if you’d have seen us four hours ago, three hours ago, it
would have been like completely like the floor, the ceiling, everything everywhere
and just by doing this, even though everything is upstairs, the downstairs, the
house is upstairs, I just feel so much saner. It is definitely not you know, how
my house normally looks by any stretch because I’m quite house proud, but it is
it is really about keeping sane and you know just being out to, just being able
to function particularly when you work from home. I can’t stress it enough.
I am definitely of the belief that I cannot concentrate if the house is messy.
I know and I have friends and colleagues and clients who have really insanely
messy houses and they seem to function. I cannot. I have to be like tidy and I know
I’ve talked to other people about it as well. So, what I really try to do normally
is to have a cleaner in, so they get it tidy and then I just can focus and and
it’s a better use of my time. But today it definitely was sending my
anxiety level through the roof, so I really had to say you know what? I’m
gonna stop working for two hours and just like sort out a bit because it’s
just too much. But that is the benefit of working from home and running your own
business because you get to choose your hours. Okay, I hope this video has been a
little bit different but it gives a little bit of insight to life isn’t always perfect. Life is often crazy and chaotic and and you know,
what we always see isn’t always the case and here we go, here is to my crazy, chaotic
life at the moment. I would do another vlog once the
downstairs is done and you can see it properly. Okay, bye bye bye. Thank you so
much for watching!
