So 2014 has been an interesting year…
‘Ome Made went from being a blog to a business. After many years of thinking about it, talking about it… we went and did it!
‘Ome Made products are now in some shops and we have a couple of markets under our belts. We are now looking forward to building on the successes we’ve had in 2014 and have some fantastic ideas for 2015! And I can guarantee this time that there will be products to buy online through the site.
We acquired another chicken… Leia! The other chickens and ducks don’t seem to be laying quite so well at the moment. If they don’t buck their ideas up soon their numbers could be depleting early 2015!
We also decided to get a puppy… yes, we know… yes we are mad!
Withnail is now 7 months old and definitely part of the family. She fits in just fine, yes, she’s mad too!
It’s been a really challenging year on the whole, the whys and wherefores we don’t really want to go into. Our firm beliefs and our strong sense of family values has seen us all pull through together ….
So here’s to 2015!
We would like to wish all our readers and people who have supported us over the past year a happy, healthy and prosperous new year…
Happy New Year!
‘Ome, Kit, MissT, Dj, CurlyE, Lil’MrM, Withnail and all the rest of the menagerie!
So what’s been happening on the ‘Ome Made front?
The ‘Ome Made products have started to be seen on shelves in certain outlets and I did my first Food Fair, which was great fun and I had some fantastic feedback on the products. I also met some great fellow local producers and MissT & Dj ate nearly all of their samples! It’s a food fair Kids… not an all day buffet!
During the summer holidays we played host to a girl from Belarus as part of the CCLL Sheffield link. Unfortunately that is probably the last time we will be involved with that particular charity.
I went for a trip round the local park with the Kids and we came back with another chicken, as you do. The Kids decided to call it leia (as in princess leia off Star Wars!), madness!
And then it was the usual pottering about with the kids. Picking bilberries and blackberries. Eating pots of curry sauce with French Bread on the top of Blackamoor (you should try it!).
Then to cap the summer holidays off we went and got a puppy!
Yes I know, four children (8,7,6 ,5) five chickens, three ducks and two skinks why would we want to go and do that?
Erm… because that’s just how we roll. Conventional? NO WAY!
So yes we now have a puppy called, a-hem, Withnail (as in the film Withnail & I, if you haven’t seen it please do. It is fantastic!).
Withnail is adorable and so far has been very well behaved. After only a few weeks she feels like she’s been part of the family forever.
So what’s next?
Well, getting the ‘Ome Made Business well and truly established. Writing more Blogs and possibly some guest Blogs for another local business.
And that’s about it. Although I have a few ideas buzzing around my head…
I can’t see any other furry or feathered friends being added to the household in the near future! Ha! Famous last words!
Now if you’ll excuse me Whitnail & I are going for a walk…
