This morning I thought I would say a proper hello and thank you to you lovely people.
I’ve been writing my blog for a little over 5 months now and the response I have had has been so heartwarming. It started as a way of getting my thoughts down, giving them a bit of order and allowing me to record our goings on, but it has developed into so much more. I love connecting with people who have similar passions, sharing things I am proud of, seeing what others are getting up to and filling myself up with more and more inspiration.
My children are still young and I thought I would be happy being a stay at home mum for quite some time, I want to see and be a part of as much of their childhood as possible, but a while ago something changed in me and I started to feel less fulfilled. This in turn made me feel guilty as I know there are so many people out there who would love to be in my position, but the truth is we all need something for ourselves. I NEED to have some time to myself and it’s detrimental to us all if I don’t. I am so fortunate to have a very supportive and involved husband who loves nothing more than whisking the girls off for a swim, the beach, a pasty and a mooch around town. He is also a keen surfer and I try to encourage him to go when he can, weather and swell permitting. When he comes back he is recharged, reinvigorated and all in all a better, happier person. I am trying to find that kind of release for myself. It comes in the form of spending time with good friends, making things in our home more beautiful, reducing the clutter of life and putting together collections of the items that are both lovely and useful, taking photos, sharing with you.
I need to add into that mix a lot more exercise and regain my love of cooking. I feel a little lost in some aspects of my life recently and really need to find the proper spark again. I can feel it coming, it’s an occasional flicker at the moment but I need to properly relight it. Alice in Scandiland is helping with this, I have no idea where it will take me, a paid job of some description that is based around my interests would be wonderful, but who knows.
For now thank you for popping along and sharing in my little achievements and happinesses, it means a lot ❤
Oh and thank you to one of my besties Cornish Sweet Pea Photography for the photos, love you lady xx
