Where To Start

Well hello!!

I have no idea where to start or how to get back into this blogging thing!!

It is currently 06:01am and I am starting my second month back at work full time after having had my second baby Charlotte - Willow.

I am really struggling now to find time to get everything I want to do in a day done. Looking after the sprogs, playing with the sprogs, reading my book (just one chapter is all I ask!), housework (giving at least one room a day a proper clean), editing videos, blogging and lets not forget about sleeping since I'm up at 4am to hit work again the next day.


This working full time and being a mum certainly isn't easy. An more times that I like to admit, its the kids who suffer.


At some point something will give and I'm hoping its the housework ha ha.


Some nights everything is down to a T. Then we have nights like last night, I have a 6month old throwing a tantrum because she is tired (really!! your tired! you who gets to sleep all day is tired!) and a 4 year old having a tantrum because she needs to poo but doesn't want to (I'm sorry, WHAT!!) and everything is up in the air! I have two bags from last Friday I need to unpack still and we are currently on Tuesday of the following week now!


I have blog posts piling up like crazy to write reviews on and finding the time is like finding gold dust at the moment.


No one said it was easy, but no one tells you the cold hard facts either.


I am going to try get more into a routine. Start adding little bits in here and there each day till I can fit everything in. An who needs sleep anyway! I can sleep when I'm older...


Speak soon (hopefully!)

  1. I'm only working part time and struggle to fit things in so I have nothing of use to add, apart from getting a book reading app on your phone. Since I took my reading digital I've been able to sneak in quite a lot of reading time! #twinklytuesday

  2. Ahh, the lovely 'not enough hours in a day!' problem... don't worry, you are not alone in the struggle. Apparently, we can have it all. I'm not sure if thats just stuff of myth and legend but its always nice to strive for something and it sounds like you are doing an admirable job. Hang in there, eventually the days where things go smoothly will outweigh the ones where it doesn't.xxx #twinklytuesday

  4. Oh hun, don't pressurise yourself too much to get everything done - focus on the important bits and everything else doesn't matter. I am hoping for the very reason you are writing this, that I don't have to go back full time. Especially as Zach starts school in September!! Take it easy lovely. Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  5. Aaahhh I can totally relate to this! Even though I'm a SAHM to my 1 year old Son I still find it incredibly hard to find time to fit in blogging regularly and as a result I too am starting to fall behind with reviews etc. One day at a time ay? #KCACOLS

  7. I only work two days a week and I still find it all a huge juggling act. I salute you for trying to fit it all in. Try and be kind to yourself though lovely and schedule in a cuppa every now and then. Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x

  10. Yeh, I can relate. I work part time and only have the one sprog. But it's a real juggle. I stick to a finely tuned routine and when something throws it off then everything goes out of whack. My daughter got chicken pox on Tuesday so I've been off work 2 days this week (exactly how I love to spend my annual leave - haha!) and am house bound. You have my sympathy for trying to juggle so much! #BlogCrush

    1. There is nothing worse than being stuck in the house for a few days. Cabin fever sets in!

  13. I hear you! I'm struggling to fit it all in as well. Sometimes you just need to coast along for a while until you catch your breath. Or check out entirely. I'm so stressed I just booked a day off from work so I can go get my hair done. It's a straggly mess with lots of greys showing because it's been so long since I went! Hope things calm down for you too and you get into a groove. Thanks for linking up to #EatSleepBlogRT. Hope you can join again next week.

  14. Aww it must be so difficult being a working parent, no idea how you do it. I have no real advice other than don't pressure yourself to try and do everything. The world won't end if your house isn't spotless. I hope you start to feel a bit better and on top of everything soon. Thanks for linking up with at #BlogCrush xx
