Sorry, it’s been a while…


I am so so happy to be writing here again 🙂 It is a complete and utter understatement to say that it has been a good, hefty amount of time since I last blogged.

Life has really been happening and I’m thankful that it has been mostly full of good stuff.

Since I last spoke with you I:

-Planned my wedding

-Had my wedding day

-Embarked on married life

-Conceived an actual human being

-Panicked about giving birth

-Gave birth and actually enjoyed labour!

-Had my daughter

-Completed two counselling courses to see if I want to be a counsellor

-Perhaps worked in teaching for the very last time

-Worked out how to be a mother

-Tried to work out what life is all about…

I’m not writing this list to be like ‘Ya darling I have been so busy and important’ but to keep you in the loop. It also helps me to remember how much I’ve been up to, as there have been times that I’ve felt like I’ve achieved nothing. Recently, I’ve also had to evaluate what ‘achievement’ really means for me.

Throughout all of this Life Gumbo, you all and this beautiful blog, have been on my mind.

I wasn’t sure whether to persevere with a ‘mum life’ blog but I’ve discovered that just writing about being a mother really is not me. I love being a mum, but I want to write about other things too.

This blog will still have some travelling and out and about posts, but I imagine there will also be a whole lot more about my recent life lessons, parenthood and family life.

Honestly, I don’t really know exactly what I’ll end up writing about but stick around if you fancy continuing with me on this beautiful, enlightening journey we call life. I plan to write consistently as I’ve had enough of thinking about blogging instead of doing it.
