Newsletter – February Week 3

happy earth news
Does anyone else feel as if things are starting to lift? Maybe it’s the spring weather but I’m getting a lot more opportunities and queries through the door, which is just thrilling and making lockdown a lot easier.
I don’t think I could ever go back to being an employee. As much as I love the idea of belonging to an office community I adore the rollercoaster world of being self-employed. Sure there are plenty of downs but you never know what’s around the corner, and that makes life a helluva lot more exciting!
And now for some excitingly positive (mostly) eco news from around the world
