The Mornington launch has been postponed

I am sorry to inform you that I have made the very difficult decision to postpone the Mornington market.

This is not easy for me to write but I feel that it is the least I can do. At the end of last year I experienced a fairly traumatic experience in the midst of all of the Christmas markets. I was devastated at the time and did not feel strong enough to share any information with you all. So I soldiered on and thought all would be fine. Then it was Christmas with all the work do's and running around and on top of that we moved. I kept busy and I thought I was still fine.

But several weeks ago it call came crashing down. A friend of mine experienced a similar tragedy to mine, and it brought all of my sadness flooding back to me. Unfortunately I am also prone to depression and that is where I have managed to spiral to. My husband travelling overseas for a few weeks has not helped either.

Please be assured that I am receiving the help that I need however, it has impacted on my preparations for Mornington and things have not progressed as I would have liked them to. The launch market is very important and I do not want to mess it up by doing an okay job.

So I have decided for the sake of my health and for the sake of the market it would be best to postpone the launch until July.

I will also be handing over the reigns to Sugar & Spice sooner than I had planned and I have found the PERFECT person to take over S&S, but that is a whole different post.
