Firstly I need to apologise for the endless plugging of my husbands competition to win a car. We are waiting to hear from an independent adjudicator who won so we will see, there were some good motivations behind it (not just personal ones) which will be revealed should we win.
However that on top of everything else has meant that I have spent the last few weeks in a mad rush. It occurred to me on Monday that I hadn’t even had my haircut for five months and that I need to slow down and re-focus my life somewhat. So the first of May marked a new chapter for me, I revived my personal financial planning spreadsheet, looked at my potential new blog banners, dug out some of my crafting books and put one of the novels I have been trying to read in a prominent position beside my bed. I also started a big clear out of the people who I ‘don’t know’ on Twitter to cut out the general noise. I have plans to write a blog about Archaeology for Pre-schoolers which I hope will be of interest. My other decision was to write a lot less reviews, I’ve actually started passing on stuff to blogging friends in the hope that they will enjoy doing them as much as I have. This should give me a chance to focus my time a bit on my new projects. So after the little flurry of review activity in the next few weeks the blog will be back to basics.
Before I had kids I used to do lots of running, yoga and healthy eating cookery. I hope to get back into this and inspire the kids to join some sports classes. I think I have come to realise that I am rushed off my feet and stressed not because I’m trying to work with three small children, but because I have no relaxation time to do the things that I really enjoy doing. It’s odd how the wet weather and spending time indoors can get you thinking!
