I had my youngest baby eleven months ago and it’s been a pretty intense time. He hasn’t exactly been sleeping through the night and with six other children to
home educate it’s been quite the challenge. I’ve always loved my sleep and seem to need more of it than most people! Any energy I have had has gone into caring for and educating my children and trying to be a somewhat sane wife too.
Well now my sweet baby boy is still not sleeping through the night but he does sleep in the evenings, I put him up to bed at 6pm and he usually stays asleep until I go to bed at about 10pm so I thought I would take advantage of that time and spend a couple of hours doing some of the things I selfishly want to indulge in.
I used to love blogging, vlogging, photography and editing so that’s what I’m diving straight back into but with a nice shiny new account! It feels so strange to have this time to myself now, sitting in my kitchen just listening to the sound of my fingers clicking the buttons as I type and hearing the strange noises the fridge is making. It’s also very strange that I’ve told my husband and children that I need this time alone to work and that they can only come in the kitchen with me if they too want to do some of their own work in peace and quiet so I have my fifteen year old daughter sitting next to me as she does some of her own work.
So I guess I did it, I made a start on my new blog. I had no idea what to write about and I’m not sure I’ve really written about anything or that anyone will read this but that’s not the point. The point is I have started and I can’t wait to see how this blog develops.
I look forward to writing more. Let me know in the comments section if you too had to relearn how to take time out for just yourself or if you felt like you almost forgot who you were because you’d identified so much with being a mother and wife.
