Where I'm At
I've neglected my space here lately. I've still been making & taking photos & hanging out with the kids, doing activities with them & generally living my life(and watching Vikings. My goodness, I love that show. It's the kind of thing that I love. Oh, & Rollo. Yes, I love Rollo). That has what has been keeping me away. I've been living life & working on seeing if I can make a dream a reality. I've been working hard. Really hard. I've been trying to find a balance between doing the hard yards & spending time with the kids & all the other things that come with being a wife & Mum. Sometimes you have to drop a few balls to stop yourself going a little crazy. And to get some sleep.
I've still been shooting the weekly portraits of the kids - I just haven't been posting them or linking up. I will catch up on those because they are important to me. I want to be able to look at them all at the end of the 52 weeks & see how my kids have grown & changed. I want to see how I've improved & changed too.
So much has happened here in the weeks I've been absent. Heath has cut teeth, spoken words & started walking. And has worked out how to climb more furniture & things. Pip has lost more teeth. Lily has had her first experience of Primary school. I'm still working out how much I want to share of my kids lives. And mine. I'll get there eventually.
In the meantime, I've got to work on my time management skills. They need some refining. None more so than when I head back out to my 'real job'. The job that pays the bills. I still have a few months to go but the thought of returning is already giving me that horrible queasy feeling in my belly. Anyway, let's not think about that right now!
This week I'm starting another project(after I just told you all I have no time!). It's not something that will really take up anymore time because it's something I'm already doing everyday anyway, as part of my daily shooting. I'm linking up with a bunch of beautiful ladies in my very first blog circle. We are doing our own 'Kids Were Here' series. It should be fun. And with my messy lot I will have tons of shots to choose from.
I really do hope that I can find a balance - both with the little spare time that comes with having a family as well as with what I will continue to share on here - because I miss this little space. It's been a part of my life for four & a half years after all.
See you soon.
