You may not have seen me around these parts so much lately. It’s not that I don’t care about my lovely blog readers or that I’m not writing but just that I have so many other things going on in my crazy life.
I’m trying to be better. A better Mother, Housekeeper, Sister, Friend, Runner, Employee, Parker......... Obviously I jest about being better at parking ‘cos that’s never gonna happen but the rest I’m seriously working on.
It’s just it takes so much time and energy to be better ALL the time. I’m not switching my laptop on until Chick is fed, bathed, storied and sleeping and the lunches made for the next day and the clothes ironed and the house some kind of tidy by which time I’m so incoherent from lack of sleep all I can think about is my resemblance to a Stepford Wife!
Also, through only my own fault, I have a HUGE backlog of reviews and commitments to reviews that I’m trying desperately hard to keep up with. I hate to let anyone down or fail and I’m saying no to so much cool stuff but I just don’t have the time and the stuff I’ve said yes to is already diluting the time that I get to write the stuff that I want to.
Having considered all my priorities, I’ve belatedly come to the conclusion that Chick has to be the most important. Previously I’ve let other stuff get in the way but now I’m beginning to realise that I only have a few precious years left until she can’t bear to be in the same room as me and will lock herself away and be the same EMO kid that I was.....dodgy music and all!!
So if you don’t see me around here so much then please take heart. It means I’m out living life, being a good Mum to my gorgeous daughter, trying to teach her manners, how to survive life, keeping the house tidy and pretending that I’m actually a grown up ;-)
