There have been so many times over the last two and a half months, where I have sat in this very spot.
At my desk, staring blankly at my laptop, in my quiet sitting room.
Since blogging every day in November, I planned to take a week off to plan for Christmas, but that week turned into eleven! And for no reason other than just life taking over really. I started to enjoy the free time I was able to have with the girls, and quickly got swallowed up in other people’s lives, whether on YouTube or Instagram, and before I knew it, Christmas was over and January was here…
I joined the gym ( I think It’s like a law in January or something ), and a couple of weeks later, the hub said that they had a part-time job going there if I fancied it, It was perfect for me and the hours fit with school, so I applied. I couldn’t believe it when I got and interview, as I wasn’t in any way qualified for the job, but I went for it, trying to show how confident I was, when I was actually bricking it!
I must have blagged it well ( or the other applicants were worse than me ), as they called me an hour later to offer me the job.. What??
So here I was, thinking that I’d go for an interview so that I could get back in to the habit of applying for jobs, for ‘when’ I go back to work, and just like that, I have a job!
I started the job at the end of Jan, and there was so much for me to learn, that it pretty much left me feeling like mush when I got home. Like I said before, I have to go back in to work, on 2 evenings per week ( Mon & Wed ) as well as picking my Mum up from work 3 days per week, so that and still having all of the house chores & school runs to contend with, meant that sadly for me, the blog was left to gather virtual dust.
Today I had to take the day off to look after the youngest while my holiday child care was busy ( my Mum was working and my teen is in Germany ), so after a morning of birthday present shopping for the little’s friend and the obligatory Mc D, I was able to whizz round the house and get the laundry done, allowing me some precious free time to actually make some plans for my blog, and my life in general.
So that’s it, you’re all up to date, I’m hoping to fit more blogging into my week now things have started to calm down, I hope you’ll be able to find the time to visit and have a read.
Feels good to be back on the keyboard!
