Hi there! Did you know I was in Japan? I was! I had three beautiful weeks travelling around some of the most gorgeous scenery I’d ever seen, eating my weight in udon noodles and developing a new-found appreciation for Japanese oolong tea. It was bliss, the ultimate rejuvenation for the soul, and the perfect timing to kick-start some healthy creative juices before the silly season kicks in. To be honest, I found it completely cleansing. In the beginning I found myself with so much more free time on my hands than I’d been used to and I didn’t know what to do with myself. But then I found my groove. My mind fluttered to life and I put pen to pager in a big way. And it felt good to get the writing flowing again. Of course now that I’m home – hello post holiday funk. Ho Hum.
But I wanted to pop in and say hi. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment. I’ve been focusing on building connections. In addition to the new Nanny Industry Spotlight column on the blog, I’ve been opening up dialogues on the topic of being a nanny with key players in this industry. Plus, you might have noticed already – there’s been a few articles published that were written for other nanny agencies and magazines. I’m doing this because I’m intent on contributing to the international nanny industry. Why? Because I believe we need to see some growth. I believe that nannies could benefit from connections. From better information. From access to better resources. And I know they could benefit from better support systems. I thought, you know what, you can do something about this. “You can actively do something to make a difference.” So you know what I did? I started working away at things to make a difference. I’m still gathering all of my ducks, but I can tell you it’s exciting times. We here at NANNY SHECANDO are almost ready for the launch of an exciting new project. If you’re a nanny, baby sitter, agency, or nanny employer – you’re going to want to bookmark this one.
