You may (or may not) have noticed that I’ve been a little quiet on here for a few weeks. March was a whirlwind of a month for me, and I really wanted to take a few steps back to take a breather so that April could see better days.
So much has happened since I last blogged, so I feel like a life update is due. Firstly, we’ve finally moved out! We chose to move a little away from Bristol for a mini fresh start, and it’s one of the best decisions we’ve ever made! I was terrified about meeting new people in this brand new area, but I was lucky enough to stumble across a lovely lady who I just so happened to already follow on Instagram; and she has very kindly invited me to a mama meet up. See – social media can be a great thing sometimes!
Secondly, I’m back to work. Well technically not ‘back’ as I’ve started a whole new job. So far so good – great job, great colleagues, and (without sounding like the world’s worst mum) I’m quite liking having a little bit of time away from mum life. It somehow feels like work is now my ‘free time’, does anybody else feel me here? The late finishes mean that I miss out on Amelie’s bath and bed time, but I still get to wake up to her beaming little face every morning so I’m totally fine with that.
And lastly – I’ve withdrew my uni application. I know, I know. I wrote an entire post blabbing on about my plans for the year, but in all honesty I think I was trying too hard to be supermum. Ooo look at me, I’m a young mum but I can defo still go to uni. When in actual fact, I’m not sure if I could. I’m really quite content with being a mum, working part time, and blogging on the side for now. I’m not ruling university out altogether, but I want to be 100% certain that it’s what I want before landing myself in pointless debt. Do I even want to be a primary teacher? Probably not. I’ve got the shortest fuse when it comes to listening to my 10 year old sisters read a book, so perhaps primary teaching isn’t ideal. Who knows. I want to live a little more, worry a little less, and see where life takes me (without sounding extremely dramatic). I’ve always been very career minded so this was a big decision for me to make, but I have no regrets (so far).
Apologies for the lengthiest blog post you ever did read, but I hope that answers any questions you may have had! Happy Tuesday, lovely people!
