Market stall + Baby - My voice = Fun, as it turns out!

Posted by Caroline Valpied on

So today I literally juggled my baby and my business.

For some inexplicable reason, Salvador chose to LIE IN today for once and not wake up at 5.30am (I would insert the tears-streaming-down-face emoji here if I knew how to). So I lay in bed after my alarm went off trying to figure out which plan of action would create the least noise to not wake him because when he wakes up he wants a breastfeed and that takes 20 MINUTES (he's always been a relaxed drinker) and then I'd have to manage him and packing the car/showering/would I have time to shower anyway? Why wouldn't I just hand him over to my husband? Am I overthinking all this? OF COURSE I was overthinking everything and it all resulted in me unshowered and a bit late, but Salvador ultimately fed. I mean, really.

Anyway, my wonder husband took over the childcare, arranging to arrive at the market in time for the customers as I HAVE LOST MY VOICE (yes, I know, can you imagine a version of me not speaking all the time??!)  I arrived at Fresh Market and found I was next to Lisa of Lady Bay Botanicals and Annie of HegARTie whale fame. When I turned my back in search of a tap to fill my water weights (that weigh down the market tent), they started putting up my marquee! Such lovely people.

Stall ready, husband and baby turn up and of course Salvador wants to be held by me the whole time so I'm basically screaming (which is coming out a loud whisper) over the babble of my baby who won't be held by anyone else and I can't put on the ground because it's too wet.

Do you know, I loved it! I loved chatting to people even with my pubescent boy voice and I love showing off my beautiful baby. I love playing with him! Have to admit though, all the chucking him around did make him vomit a little bit. Whoops.

Bronson was there the whole time ready to whisk him off when he needed a nap.

Around 11.30am, murmurs started rippling amongst the stall-holders of incoming torrential weather. We saw it coming, felt the first drops, packed up faster than ever before and headed over to the Main Beach Kiosk for a delicious lunch while baby Sal continued sleeping. 

It was a very successful market for me and a great day as I framed up for the next one (this coming Sunday 17th March), did some writing (I have a freelance writing job) and wrote this blog post. Tomorrow morning, back to the easel...Bronson has a couple of days off work and Sal will enjoy some daddy daycare. 

I guess the point of this blog is to remind you that I have beautiful prints to sell! Please check back to the shop part of the website and have a look around. As always, any feedback on my blog or website is much appreciated! Ta for now. 

P.S. Here's one of my beautiful customers with her husband's birthday present. Thanks Georgie!

  • DR. JOROMI IS TRULY A POWERFUL MAN. Contacting Dr Joromi is the best thing that has ever happened to me. My husband left me for another woman for the reason which i know nothing about. I tried every means to get him back but to no avail, all my efforts proved abortive. I was even contemplating suicide. On a lucky day when i was browsing the internet, i came across some amazing testimonies about Dr. Joromi on how he has helped a lot of people with his powerful love spells. I contacted him and explained all my problems to him and he assured me that he will help me. He told me what to do and assured me that my man will be back in 12 hours. I obeyed him and followed the instructions and to my Greatest surprise, my man called me in 12 hours time just as Dr. Joromi said. Thank you Dr Joromi. May the good God continue to bless you. If you are in need of help please contact Dr Joromi now on his website: https://www.joromispells.com and you can also reach him with his email: Joromispells@gmail.com and here is his WhatsApp number which you can also use to reach him +2348138695387 Thank you Dr Joromi.

WALE, who brought her husband back within 24hours, so I decide to give it a try and to my greatest surprise he also did it for me just as he did for Lauren and I have a lot of people complaining of fake spell caster but this one I met was a real spell caster who help me to solve my problem I have no solution to, I introduce many of my best friends that have a similar problems, and their problem were solve with the great help of DR. WALE, who help them to get back their lovers within 24 hours. I am so happy that my husband is back to me again, and the most surprising thing is that our love is very strong, every day is happiness and joy. and there is nothing like been with the man you love. I am so happy my love is back to me with the help of DR.
