Life Lately is a whirlwind. There can be days when Dan and I don’t talk apart from ‘you picking the kids up tonight’ kind of conversation. And I can’t believe it’s been a week since I have written on here. So sorry for going AWOL, life is certainly busy and only getting busier this coming month.
At the beginning of the year I made a promise to say YES to all things that made my heart fly. The result of that decision is that I am dashing around all over the place and fitting so much in. Let me explain…
SISTERHOOD is taking up most of my time at the moment, with only a month to go I am fielding questions and sourcing products, materials and writing up workshops. It’s a beautiful, creative and chaotic part of my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. SISTERHOOD this year is going to be so amazing. The line-up and quality of the workshops plus the brilliant women who are coming – I can’t wait to share.
DIY – our court yard renovation is moving along. Like all home renovations it takes time, a couple of hours here and there around our already packed schedule. But the pavers are down (did you see on Snapchat?) and the shed has a roof. I’ve been gathering plants and potting them up. SOON I will be able to share it on here.
Travel – This month my travel trips are increasing. Dan and I are off to the Cotswolds tonight with a Mr&Mrs Smith press trip, followed by a weekend in Cornwall for a Simple Things Magazine and This is Your Kingdom collaboration. Next week I’m off to London, the Malvern Show and then to a Shepherds Hut in Somerset. These are only the first two weeks of May! HECTIC!
Family – Above all I am still a mum, and have two boys I need to feed, grow and support. After school clubs, helping with homework, washing school uniforms – it is endless and a thankless task. I must remember to read with them more! I’m so rubbish at that bit.
This isn’t a post about me glorifying ‘busy’, I am just trying to explain that I despite not writing on here as often as I would like, I am still beavering away in the background, and will share the news soon – if you are at all interested – perhaps you are not? Let me know :)
Anyway – follow me on Snapchat and Instagram which I update daily. And leave me a comment below to let me know you are there!
