Life is good weird...

Just when I thought I was better I got ill again.

Don't worry though I'm better now.

Although I've said that before...


It's a weird time for me. Life is good so it's good weird. When I started this blog I had a very active toddler and a baby. Getting dressed, brushing hair and managing to poop uninterrupted was a good day. (Sorry I just made you think of poop but if you have kids you know exactly what I mean). This blog allowed me to be creative and most importantly helped me to find all the lovely things around me that can otherwise go unnoticed. Especially when you have little to no sleep and two little ones constantly needing things from you.

I mean two little ones who's actual survival depends upon you. Ahhh! I cycled between anxiety and exhaustion a lot.

This blog brought me back to the present moment and said 'yes but look how beautiful that is?'

Now they are both at school full time. At first I was distracted by the wedding I shot and the house I did up. But now life is quieter. And I feel the shift in my life. Not having some obvious goal feels weird. I feel a little aimless. I see friends for coffee here and there but mostly I'm locked in a constant, and if I'm honest, losing battle with housework.

I see you laundry and yes I hear you laughing...

I'm still loving my role as stay at home mum and I don't want to give it up. The amount of times I get asked 'what do you do all day?' has increased dramatically. And despite the questions I get from people, it works for us. Isn't that what we should all do? Find what works for us as families and as people. We are all so different so there isn't a one size fits all situation here.
