Treading water

So we're back in Bristol after a really great week away. We well and truly needed that holiday, and I think it has helped us both to clear our heads and lift weights off our shoulders and spend some proper time together as a family. It was pretty relaxing and stress-free, and beautiful too. It's great that we can go on holiday to amazing places right on our doorstep.

Not much more to say on it all really. We had a great time at Rob's grandparents who spoiled us rotten (including Theo) he probably got spoiled the most! Theo was a bit ill or was teething on the last few days and we had a few sleepless nights, which is a shame as he was so good all the rest of the holiday. But it was great to have someone else around to help with it all. So here are the pictures of the rest of the holiday, there's probably quite a few!

In other news I've decided to take a step back from the business that I started, 'The Homemade Mama' with Kimberlee. I think in theory the business is a good idea, but in reality for me, there was too much to take on, and both of our priorities were in different places. I'm still going to carry on with the party planning side of the business, on my own and at my own pace. But for now I feel I just need to concentrate on Theo and my family and being there for them as much as I can. I really enjoyed the bits of making I did, and hope to carry on that in the future too, as it's fun to be inspired and doing something for myself. Kimberlee and I are still going to hopefully work together and help each other out in the future, but for now will just remain friends instead of business partners!

We also looked at another house today, and really do quite like it. I'm going to sleep on it, which means dreaming about where all our furniture will go and imagining us living there, and see if it all fits together. I feel like we need a new start, to wipe the slate clean and really get things in order and working. Recently I've felt as though I haven't really been coping that well with being a mother. It seems as though I have been treading water for the last few months, and anything unplanned that happens seems to drag me down and I feel like I'm fighting to get to the surface. I just want to feel like I'm on level, safe ground for a while, and know that I'm doing the best for my baby and my family. All the other stuff can come later. This holiday has really made me realise what's important in my life at the moment, and that I don't really need much else.

But that's about it for now!


  1. That last paragraph could have been written by me. I feel exactly the same. I hope we both get there soon!
