This week every spare moment (and non-spare moment, come to think of it) I’ve spent catching up on work.
Half term for us was great it was so lovely having Mademoiselle & Little Mister home for two weeks. Yes it was noisy, muddy, I was a referee too many times; we spent lots of it outside, caught up with friends and we headed off to Jersey for four days. But it also meant that I now have a momentous mountain of work to catch up on.
I work part-time & with a partner, but we pretty much look after our own projects, so when I’m not around the work isn’t picked up by a team it just waits for me to return!
So this week I’ve put on my hiking boots and started climbing that work mountain. I’ve rolled myself out of bed to get a few hours of work in pre-school, and continuing to do it after the children’s bedtimes, too. To say I’m tired is an understatement!
And my poor blog has been neglected this week *sighs.* I’m on comment catch up big time – sorry to all those who I haven’t reached yet. I have posts half written, photography that’s yet to be edited, products to be reviewed and I haven’t posted anything all week *shakes head.*
I sometimes wish my blog was my ‘real’ work, because I enjoy it so much. But financially I can’t give up my day job to replace the word ‘blogger’ on my business cards – Mummyshire isn’t that good & I’m not that savvy! My first job will always be as mummy to Thing 1 & Thing 2, but could I roll the dice and give up my paying job to plunge myself entirely into making Mummyshire financially viable? It was never my intention; but I enjoy my blog so much maybe it’s time for a rethink? Clearly I have some decisions I need to work on *groans! pardon the pun!*
I hope you’ve had a lovely week & enjoyed the weather
