So, I Took A Break

Hello!
I’m back from my little break. While I had planned to take a break, I had hoped I would have enough content scheduled to cover the time away. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite able to get everything done in time and I decided it would be better that no posts went up rather than substandard ones. But now I think it’s time for a little catch-up.

On January 23rd this little guy was born. This is Rowan and he is now almost 6 weeks old. Having the two of them to take care of has been a bit more difficult than we had anticipated, but nothing too concerning. Luna isn’t a confident walker so it is difficult for me to take them out by myself. And we’ve had a few issues with feeding Rowan (turns out breast isn’t always best, but I have a post on that planned for later in the month).

I’m still mourning the loss of my routine a little bit. Luna loves to be where I am and do what I’m doing. So whenever I would film she’d want to touch the camera or if I’m writing, she wants to take control of the keyboard. This meant I had to work before she woke up, during her nap and after she went to bed (unless Nick took her out for few hours). Now I have Rowan to take care of during Luna’s nap and there’s no way in hell I could muster the energy to get up early or stay up later. It’s going to be at least another few months before I can even hope of attempting to reclaim my routine. I know it sounds a little bit selfish, but I’m sure any other mum would agree that you need something outside your kids. It helps keep me sane.

At the moment I am utilising every multi-tasking, time-saving method I have ever learned in order to get what I want to do done. I want to get my videos back on track and kick start my Book channel (I have some neat ideas for that one). I want this blog to get back on the regular and I want to take part in Camp Nanowrimo next month. I’ve got big plans and I won’t know if I can achieve them unless I try.

I used to do these “Sunday Coffee Morning” pieces on my old blog, it was a little personal catch-up at the end of the week so I could share things that didn’t need a post of their own. I dropped it when I moved to this domain, I wanted it to be more professional. But I miss it, just having a little chit-chat. So I’ve decided to bring it back. Even if I didn’t post anything else during the week I always found time for this and I always felt better for it. It’s a great way to share the goings on of life and play about with ideas. I want to move away from trying to produce overly polished content and just post what makes me happy.

So, what have you guys been up to since I’ve been away?

Laura
