Well hello friends!
I’ve sure taken my sweet time getting this latest blog post out.
The thing is….work has been hectic. It’s been a busy busy ole time.
And by work I mean: ‘Being mum”.
Yup. That’s my job right here right now, mama numero uno.
And just like any other job, it has to come first and hobbies have to come second.
Yeah. There are a lot of days when I feel ‘Humph’ about that. A lot of days of itching to get up at the sewing machine, a lot of days of feeling frustrated at the lack of creativity in my world… and then – most often – I remember.
I am a Mum. That is one freakin’ big job right there.
And I remember:
– How ridiculously fortunate I am to be a mother.
– How seriously fun it is to stay home with my littles.
– How this is the best job I’ve ever had.
And yes, every job has it’s rubbishy bits, just as this one does too. But most of the time I have absolutely got to make more of an effort to recognize the brilliance of my very bare situation. Without the pomp and circumstance and ceremony. That just, quite frankly, being mum is, well, brilliant.
And you know, these little days are running away with us and soon I’ll have bigger gaps of time and space to play with my creativity and mad ideas… but for now, I’ve got to savor and enjoy.
and these moments will be long gone…
And that’s not to say I’m giving this up, whatever ‘this’ may be. No, no…. I’m still squeezing bits of sewing and playing into most weeks. Some more productive than others, some entirely well….. And you can be entirely sure that those times where I’m hatching plans and larking around…well, all else falls to the wayside, washing, cleaning, bathing (ok, maybe not that far!).
But it’s writing these posts! Goodness gracious they take some time! So, I’m finding I’m documenting my doings on Instagram. Won’t you come join me? Small snippets of whatever I’m up to all logged in one spot. And rather addictive to boot!
Here’s some recent happenings:
So, whilst I’m still hovering around, still hatching a plan for the next stage of my life, still creating and crafting… in the midst of it all….I’m just doing my darn best to be mum.
