In a whirlwind of blue we were out the door, walking the walk back to school. And as I said my hellos to fellow mums and goodbyes to my sons in the playground, I breathed out.
Don’t get me wrong, I love, adore having my boys with me during the holidays, but as a freelancing mum I find working during this time hard. After having a stressful summer break last year, trying to juggle work deadlines and child entertainment, I took the decision to leave most of my work to term time as much as possible. A difficult decision as money is always tight.
So now here I sit, with a ‘to do’ list as long as my arm. Many emails to write, research to be read, a header to be designed… I relish the quiet. Time to reflect on my blog, and where I am taking it forward. Yes, Winter is behind me and with Spring brings the promise of exciting projects, collaborations and adventures.
It’s good to look forward, isn’t it? What are you looking forward to?
