Long Nights and Longer Days

At the end of September this year I had a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) that had me in hospital for three weeks and still has me off work.

I have some balance issues remaining and a tremor in my left hand which is easing over time.

The days of doctor visits is now receeding into history as my recovery continues.

This is leaving me with long days and nights of very little to do.

Yesterday I got an e-mail from my zazzle.com account. It appears someone bought a T-Shirt from one of my old stores. It was actually a store that I set up on my very first day there two and a half years ago.

Well the store had stood for a while, some traffic but no sales until September 26, then a SALE!

Ironically that was the very day I had my stroke. While I sat in hospital for three weeks, my customer was enjoying their new shirt and finally a few days ago the sale was confirmed as good. So I got paid a commission. YEAH! I like that someone actually bought one of my shirts.

Since yesterday I have been cleaning up my stores on Zazzle.  Adding some new stuff too.

If you are at a loose end for something to do. Maybe consider opening a store online selling your own t-shirt designs or other products.

Don't tell yourself that you are blind so you can't do it. I can do it, you can too.

While the commission may be a little slow, this cheque will have taken two years to come. It does give you a sense of satisfaction to say that I am a clothing designer who has sold his designs successfully. :)

Now off to Starbucks for a Venti brewed coffee. That's my commission spent.
