This past month has been a blur! Will started school, Sam started nursery, I FINALLY had my vein op on my leg, I am STILL planning Mark’s birthday and today Will if off school with his first school sickness! With everything always being so hectic in my house I find it hard to find any time to actually just BE and to think a little about ME!
I have ALWAYS known that I wanted to be a Mum when I grew up and I got my wish four years ago. Two baby boys later, I know full well that being a Mum is a full time commitment but what else do I want to do……
I know that I want to write and so I’ve set up this blog as well as actually starting to write an ACTUAL book! Something I have wanted to do for a long time! The blog is more for me – a way to document my family life and also give me a chance to speak up on issues that are important to me and that I think really need a voice. The book….well. My Dad wrote and published two books during his lifetime and I know I have at least two or more ideas that have been banging around my head for years now. So I thought I would try my hand at it and see what happens. Perhaps he has passed on his writing genes?!
I also have a few ideas for short stories, so maybe I should start there? I’m not sure. I know I have all this creativity inside still dying to be expressed and, as a performer, I need to express myself. I’m still planning on auditioning again and performing again but with the boys being so little, late night rehearsals need to wait, just a little bit longer.
So I thought that now is the perfect time to use this time to write and get those ideas, thoughts and stories down on paper for, hopefully, at least a few people to want to read!
I’ve also started a gift business! I actually started it a couple years ago, after Sam was born, but with a newborn and joining a MLM company (more on THAT in another post!) I didn’t have time to fully commit to it! But I have started to create some different pieces for our new house and thought I should see if anyone else might be interested in them….so Little Village Designs has been reopened!
There’s so much I want to do! I have a tendency to rush into things and want to see fulfilment straight away! I am conscious not to do that this time…just see where everything takes me and enjoy the ride. My number one focus is always my boys and my family so they come first…everything else needs to slot in around them. And I’m confident the right ventures will.
