Taking a Break

For a while now I’ve been meaning to take a short break from blogging. I wasn’t sure whether to actually post about this or just do it, but I think announcing that I’m going off for a while will hopefully mean I am more inclined to actually do it!

If you follow my blog you’ve probably noticed I’ve been quite absent for a while anyway. Whilst I’m still writing the odd post, they have mainly been reviews for a few months now. In my head I always think I will find time to write some ‘proper’ content, but in reality I never seem to find the time. I’ve also been quite absent from social media and I can’t remember the last time I found the time to sit down and read someone else’s blog (sorry!). I’m just completely out of the loop with blogging lately.

It’s hard to say what is taking all my time up. It’s not the kids…going from one to two hasn’t been anywhere near as hard as I thought it would be. It helps that A is just a dream baby…I feel so lucky with him, I couldn’t have asked for more. He’s slept through since he was a few weeks old, he never cries, he’s full of giggles and smiles and nothing ever seems to faze him. Sometimes I forget he’s even there!

I think it’s just that I have so much I want/need to do that there isn’t enough time in the day. I feel constantly frazzled and stressed and something has to give, so blogging seems the obvious choice. To be honest, I’m not really enjoying it any more. It has started to feel like a bit of a chore, which is why I’ve decided to step back from it. I’ll be gone until September at least (so a month, minimum), however I agreed to a few things ages ago, so if they actually come off, I will write posts because I don’t want to let anyone down. I think, come september I’ll reassess the situation and decide if I want to take a longer break or give up completely. See you all soon (hopefully!).
