So, let’s start off with a small apology. Since returning to work earlier this month, the blog has taken a massive hit. Being a mum and working full time is as difficult as you’d imagine. Despite not having the full range of teacher duties (marking, planning, data and assessment etc.) I still find that I have very little time left, and the little time I do have is spent with Baby and Daddy. The house is getting untidy, it is driving me mad but Daddy is also a full time worker so as you can imagine, it’s a struggle. Of course it is about prioritising and unfortunately, a tidy house is not high up on the list. That’s not to say that I live in a pig sty, this is purely my inability to deal with my interpretation of untidiness. We’ve barely got time for each other but our relationship is as strong as ever so we’ll manage as we always do. We will soon be celebrating our first wedding anniversary, so that is something to look forward to.
Anyway, like I said, sorry for not being so active at the moment. I am hoping to be able to pick up the pace again after the October half term as I’ll be looking for a new job or, fingers crossed, already in a new part time job. Life will always find a way over the bumps. Perseverance is key.
Now, what should you look forward to between now and Christmas? Well, I have a few sponsored posts coming up, my first ever bloggers event, plenty of autumn, winter, Halloween and Christmas themed posts as well as a couple more in my ‘Mummy Rants’ series. I will also be looking at writing about our first year of marriage. I am planning on doing another spotlight post featuring my sister. She is an awesome freelance illustrator. I’ll also be doing a few other posts based around mindfulness, bullet journals etc. So keep an eye out for the next few months.
Again, thanks for sticking with me during this slight down time. I will be back with a vengeance soon enough. It means a lot to me that you’re all still here.
Peace and love,
