Posie is having a BIG SALE at the Mathilda's Market in Canberra

Greetings all,
Time for a bit of a Winter Sale at Posie!! 
In just ONE WEEK i'm leaving the brrrr of Canberra Winter & solo parenting life, for a few weeks in the European Summer with my husband!!  I know, that's without the children, WITHOUT them, OMG, first time ever & a husband on war leave, yippee!!  So to share the pure joy & glee i'm feeling, i'm putting all my non-handmade goodies on sale from 25% off at the Mathilda's Market tomorrow!! 
Most of you know my life story - soldier's wife & mother of 4, husband away for 10 months this year (typical for us), i have my businesses split into 4 . . . on line retail/ wholesale/ markets & i work at Shop Handmade 4 days a week where i have a whole wardrobe & cot full of handmade goodness . . . plus family duties like P&C roles, homework, cooking, cleaning, dog walking, i have zero help & that's my life.  Sound like i need a bit of a recharge??  I like my independence & i'm a workaholic as i plan an EARLY retirement.  Something along the lines of when our 4th child starts Uni, i'll be 45 & will escape to a coastal cottage & sew while my husband surfs, tends the garden, feeds the animals, ahhhhhh the dream . . . no wars, no homework, no bake sales, just us!!
  
So back to reality & . . . tomorrow, imagine these shelves beautifully set up with all sorts of sale items & deals!!  Lark, Dumpling Dynasty, LadyBird, Rosie Flo, Djeco & more . . .
Also my children (but one, the fella is coming with me) are at friends' places so no babysitting fees (well babysitter cancelled for a Christening, so i had no choice) so i'm already ahead & have quite the skip in my step today.  Call it a sale or holiday fundraiser??  More on the trip later, just be happy & excited for me, OMG, my husband, him, love of my life, i keep getting all teary just thinking about meeting him at the airport (trust me, i won't recognise him, beard & all) so he can find me!!  Love Posie

Good luck at the market Posie - I hope you sell stacks and fill your pockets for purchasing delightful European treats - I'm very jealous of your holiday but it sounds like you absolutely deserve and NEED it! Have a fabulous time. And don't be volunteering for any more P&C jobs in the meantime. Belinda

Wow, thanks everyone, just feeling so zen about my work load before i go. I have even left packing the car for the market for the morning, very unlike me but just in from a lovely dinner with a friend (who is having my twins for the rest of the weekend) & i'm too relaxed to do any more last minute sewing, signage or anything. Ahhhh, having an "it will be alright on the night" kind of feeling, love Posie
