Losing, then re-finding my blogging MoJo

Hello Lovelies. Yes, I've left you stranded here for 2 whole weeks. It wasn't intentional but life seems to have got in the way a bit. You know how it is sometimes and if I’m honest I kind of lost my blogging mojo for a while.

I've been drowning under the ever growing “to do” list that has been looming. It’s not been the nicest of feelings but eventually I've put my head in the right space again and found some focus once more. So I’m back again, but only briefly tonight. I’ll be writing some more posts in the coming weeks. I've lots planned in my head. I just need to balance out time for everything now.

I’m off to run (well probably more like walk and jog!) in the Race for Life on Sunday in honour of my beautiful Mum. It’s my first time doing this and it feels slightly weird doing it for Mum. There are times when I’m sure she will just walk back through the door and give me one of her lovely hugs. I think there’s a part of you that never wants to admit they've gone forever. So, I’m gathering momentum for that and how it will all make me feel. I have lots to blog about on Sophia’s Choice too and I have also been researching bits and pieces for the online shop I aim to launch in September this year to run alongside it. It’s all coming together but it just takes so much more time when you are a SAHM with a 2 year old toddler in tow. We’ll get there though.

I've also been booking myself on courses; a business start up course, a copy writers course and another web design course. I know, I’m mad ! But all this will piece bits of my jigsaw puzzle together and finally complete the picture. I've wanted to do something again for myself for a long time. I love my girls with all my being but I’m also very ambitious and independent. I've happily given the past 7 years to be there for them and will still be there, but now I’m really excited about what the future holds for me too. The two blogs have ignited my passion for writing again and everything seems to be falling into place once more. That makes me so happy. It’s long overdue. Yes, I’m going to be very busy over the coming months, but happily so.

My want is to grow this blog now and the lovely thing is that The Mad Mummy Musings is very different from Sophia’s Choice. They allow me to share with you all in very different ways. Belle is very interested in what I write for the two blogs and is keen to be involved, so I’m sure that anything I end up sharing here that involves craft and being creative, will involve her input. We will be reviewing a creative craft activity very soon on this blog. You’ll just have to wait and see what that is.

I also joined up with the Britmums Book Club recently. I’m still reading the first book but  I’m determined to get back to reading again. I used to devour books before having small people to run around after. It’s amazing how little time there seems to be now. What did we all fill our time with before kids eh?! I’ll be reviewing the books I get to read here too, so look out for a good read or two coming your way.

So, that’s all for now. Short and sweet. I just felt the need to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you and I’ll be back again very soon indeed. Have a great weekend one and all. A bientot xx

  1. Good luck with race for life, it is so hard loosing a parent probably the hardest thing that has happened to me, I am sure your mum would be proud to see you and your girls. I loose my blogging mojo often it's usually when I find something I love that I get back into writing. xx

    1. Hello Lovely Ana xx Thanks for stopping by. Yes, losing a parent is tough. The hole is never ever filled again. But she will be with me and as you say I'm sure she's proud of what I'm doing. And losing my blogging mojo; yeah really weird. My head just wouldn't connect with the page for weeks. I had loads stacking up and I wanted to write but just couldn't. I think it was lack of time, needing to prioritise and making sure I was spending enough time with the girls which is of course most important of all xx

  2. Look forward to reading more in due course. Good luck in the race for life xx

    1. Hi Karen - Thank you lovely xx Hope things are settling for you. I've been thinking about you and your situation a lot. Good Luck xx
