Summer break

summer break

Since our Europe trip I’ve found it hard to get back into a blogging rhythm. The break marked the beginning of the summer for me and my mind is elsewhere if I’m honest – lack of child-free time to create new content, the house is always a tip as there’s kids’ toys and craft stuff everywhere, and in the summer we spend most of our time outdoors, so the last thing I’m thinking about is the house and DIY projects. It’s like I swap hats and over the summer all my energy goes on being a parent rather than on anything home-related. So I’ve decided to flick the switch to family mode and this summer you’re more likely to find me posting over on my other blog, Young & Younger about parenting, kids’ crafts, family activities etc, than here. In the past I might have apologised profusely for my absence, and felt guilty about it, but this year I’ve realised that this is a pattern that will probably continue for many years so I’ve decided to accept and embrace it.

I’m sure there’ll still be a couple of posts here over the summer (this is a sticky post so you’ll need to scroll down to see if there’s been anything new). Or there might not. Who knows? I’ll still be over on Instagram if you’re desperate to know what we’re up to. I’m also going to change my email signature to let people know why I might not have time to reply, or that a reply might come later than usual.

I hope you enjoy your summer as much as I plan to enjoy ours.

    Spot on with this write-up, I honestly feel this web site
    needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the information!
