I have been an awful blogger. I can only apologise, most importantly to my guest poster for this post Tilly. This month has met me with some down moods & slight health concerns, along with the non-motivation to do very much. I have struggled. But we’re not here to focus on that. I’m posting my Oh My Blog! Guest post (finally) and even though it’s mother’s day themed, I’m sure a bit of appreciation for our mums can be welcomed any time of the year.
I’ve taken part in different twitter chats for bloggers for a while now and something I noticed, was that even though there were some twitter chat infographics out there, I struggled to keep up with some still. None of them featured parenting chats (or at least, none that I’ve found). So I took it upon myself to create one with all chats I know of whether that be for beauty bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, parenting bloggers, fashion bloggers, book bloggers and more.
Bedtime is my absolute favourite part of the day (as well as any time involving food of course). Sometimes I count down the hours until it’s time for me to settle down and have a snooze (well deserved of course). The lovely Nicola from Mummy to Dex tagged me to complete the Bedtime tag and of course I couldn’t wait to tell you guys all about my favourite time of the day haha!
First off, I’d like to say I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year and a fantastic break (If you got one). I’ve had a HUGE break from my blog and writing and well, anything really ha! But seriously, I’ll be honest, I returned to work after 9 months of maternity leave, however, I wasn’t feeling great in terms of my mental health and so I’ve had to take a little more time. I’m struggling (there, I said it) but I’m currently on antidepressants and have started Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I digress…
In the last week, I’ve taken a little time to look at myself. I’ve realised, things need to change. Yes, I am a mum and a full time employee and pretty much keeping the house together and myself and my child alive BUT, I haven’t even taken care of myself. I had a bubbly bath the other day and used a face mask, neither of which I have done in over 10 months (10 minute showers have been my best friend in what feels like forever ha!) I dress frumpy, a ‘mum’ look if you will. I have very few hobbies as I’m usually so exhausted and all I want to do when I’ve put bear to bed and washed his bottles etc, is climb into bed myself. I realised, all of this needs to change. View Post
If Someone said to me in November last year ‘are you excited for Christmas? honestly, I’d have told them where to go! I get excited for Christmas but I refuse to before December 1st and I can only get a bit excited as I’m usually on a downer for the majority of the time.
But this year, having a little one, there’s just something so special and magical about it all! It makes me feel like a kid again, but excited for Logan mostly of course! I’ve been preparing for Christmas for a couple f months now and, dare I say it, I have finished getting Logan’s Christmas presents (all bar a bath bomb from Lush of course!) Hopefully, having returned to work means I can get a few gifts for people but we’re mostly going to try and make it super exciting and magical for bear. View Post
