So tell me this and tell me no more, have you created a life abundant with routine, ritual and celebration for yourself? Does all the housekeeping advice in the world seem like mumbo-jumbo to you and sooooo not relevant to the chaos that is your daily life? Do you browse through all the downloads here on BrocanteHome, then stash them away in your "One Day I Will Live Like This" compartment and carry on regardless? You are not alone. Housekeeping, no matter what the naysayers may say, is HARD. Creating a routine that works for you and your family isn't a cookie-cutter job and it is oh so very, very difficult to prioritize all the tasks that need doing, alongside planning all the tiny little joys that make life worth living.
So I am pleased to announce a gorgeous, much needed, long-requested service here on Brocantehome: A Housekeepers counselling service I am calling the Pep-Talk, the culmination, my darlings of my twenty years experience of interiors, homemaking and conversations with women like yourselves about keeping house in a way that supports our souls.
You see I want to show you the way to a house that is as fresh as a daisy and a heart that is abundant with houskeeping pride. I want to help you plan all the holidays that matter to your family, while supporting you as together we create a set of daily, weekly, monthly and annual routines that work for the way you want to live. I want to listen to your homemaking dilemmas and offer solutions that will have you smiling as you open your eyes, certain that you are not waking up to a houseful of hell, but can instead skip down the stairs certain that any problems you do have, have nothing whatsoever, to do with a home that runs like clockwork!
So how will the Pep-Talk work?
I don't want you to be intimidated. I don't want you to have to worry about muttering your way through phone calls or skype conversations with me, then putting the phone down or stepping away from the computer, certain that you haven't managed to tell me all that I need to know, or unsure whether I have grasped just how desperate you feel. No. I want you to provide me with all the information I need, in your own time, and in a way that guarantees we both understand exactly how you feel: so my PEP-TALK'S will happen by email, and when we are both happy, I will then create your very own PEP-TALK by snail-mail so that at the end of our counselling relationship, you will have in your hands a set of routines, rituals and guidelines for your housekeeping future alongside a handwritten pep-talk from me and a few other surprise little pretties inside your Brocante dotted parcel.
What Will I Need From You?
Honesty. Commitment to the process so that you can make the most of my time. Timely return of the workshop forms and lists I will be sending you and as much information about the way you live your life and your hopes, plans and homemaking dreams as is humanely possible.
Once you have booked and paid for the service and have been allocated a starting date, the entire process will take up to six weeks from start to finish with the first available date for counselling starting in February with just one pep-talk bookings available per month
