One of the things about being a mum and working from home is that you don’t get maternity leave. There is no magic date in your diary when you leave the ‘office’ and start to really get ready for your new arrival. And so in the past I’ve kept working and answering emails and kept the blog going from my couch or dining table with a newborn.
And so I’m taking August and September off and I’m so looking forward to it. Maybe it’s just the thought of having 6 little ones to look after that has made me realise that I need to do things differently this time around.
I’ll blog when I feel like it, sell some fabric on the side with my wonderful friend posting it out (my little store is almost ready), share some cute baby photos, share some knitting projects (haha if I get any knitting done) but most of all will not worry about the blog and just enjoy some family time and a new little life in our family. Of course if you’ve had a newborn then you know the reality will be that I’ll be feeding around the clock, getting next to no sleep, trying to keep on top of the washing and everyone fed and happy. And that’s going to be my number 1 priority.
So please bear with me this month while I get everything wrapped up on the blog and the home front…………5 weeks and counting…….
