I just had these lovely cards done with my blog and email details on them from Moo. They come in this handy little box that I can carry in my handbag and whip out when needed.
There are three flavours, Spinach green, Pea green and Lettuce green. I like green. And well…it says fresh doesn’t it.
My new cards will come in very useful when, occasionally, people ask me what I do. It’s a big question for me because what I actually do is sweep up bits of food, tidy toys, wipe noses and drive my car for what seems like 80 per cent of the day.
But that’s not very exciting so what I actually say is, “well erm… I’m a full time mum.” And then very quickly, like that’s not enough! I throw in, “but I’ve got a blog!” Ah, now you’re interested. “Yes, I’ve got a blog and it’s about gardening and growing vegetables and fruit and sometimes cutting flowers.” That normally does the trick because everyone, no matter who they are, is interested in at least one of those topics. Guaranteed.
The next thing they say is, “oh I’ll check it out, what’s the web address.” And I tell them and I see them forget what I just said. But not anymore! No, now I will say, “Here, take my card.” Like the professional, blogging mother-of-two that I am.
They should also come in handy at Chelsea Flower Show when I have the same conversation with about fifty different people in one day. Phew!
