It’s been a long time since I last sat down and wrote on here with a general life update! I thought… hey, why not now? Lockdown number 3 seems as good a time as any.
So obviously, the world is a giant pile of crap right now, generally.
But in my own personal little world? Not too bad. Not great. But I’m focusing on the good.
It’s been a LONG TIME since I last saw my family and friends. A hell of a long time. It hurts whenever I stop and think about that, and about how much River has grown and changed since they last saw him. But it’s the same (or worse) for many out there. So I won’t mope any longer on here.
For our little family, life is getting on as best as we can. Even though we’re in lockdown, we’re busier than ever. My husband has started working on placement as a student nurse in hospital, and his schedule is CRAZY. Which means I get very little help looking after River these days. Which THEN in turn results in me working on my own business around the clock somehow. My little shop is doing well! I can’t complain there at all. Orders come in fairly regularly, and I’m motivated more than ever to keep going, to keep making new things, to keep trying.
I love all the products I’m working on. Even though it’s incredibly hard right now; trying to balance work and motherhood… and just life in general. It’s also really great feeling so productive. Staying busy keeps me happy, so I can’t complain about that as I’m busier than ever.
My little boy is exactly that now, a little boy. No longer a baby, and definitely his own little person now. He’s talking and chatting all the time, and just recently he’s learned about manners. So we’re getting a lot of ‘peeease’ and ‘fank yoooos’ which make my heart burst.
The biggest motivator keeping me going right now, is thinking what we’ll do when this whole Covid thing ‘blows over’ – for lack of a better term. We’re definitely visiting family and friends in Liverpool, booking lots of trips away, a big family holiday is absolutely on the cards. I also want to really treasure loads of date nights with my husband again. Just us, hanging out. It’s been a long time since we could have a babysitter!
I’m feeling tired, but optimistic. Right now anyway. This does change daily, as per lockdown life.
But let’s hope things stay like this!
I’ll be sure to update again soon. I’ve missed writing these little entries 🙂
