In July I wrote a post about the value of consistency … and was anything but consistent afterwards.
Yes I began a podcast – which will resume this month! (exciteddotcom!)Don’t miss it – follow our Dragonfly Community <a href="http://<iframe src="https://www.podbean.com/media/player/multi?playlist=http%3A%2F%2Fplaylist.podbean.com%2F6152996%2Fplaylist_multi.xml&vjs=1&size=430&skin=8&episode_list_bg=%23ffffff&bg_left=%23000000&bg_mid=%230c5056&bg_right=%232a1844&podcast_title_color=%23c4c4c4&episode_title_color=%23ffffff&auto=0&share=1&fonts=Helvetica&download=1&rtl=0&show_playlist_recent_number=10" title="Don't Just Imagine – Paula Middleton DJI" width="100%" height="430" scrolling="no" style="border: none;">here!
Yes we went away as a family twice post-covid and yes, one of our bucket list destinations has now been ticked off!
And yes I have continued with my network marketing business.
But I haven’t posted here since the beginning of August!
Why I hear you ask! I have had a few down days. Sometimes my days were rolling into a never ending, tiresome cycle unless we were away somewhere different.
We have been doing DIY on the house (that list hubby said he had no time for – thanks to furlough and possible redundancy – now he does).
My emotions, like many others, have been like a roller coaster and I find it hard to get the feels to share the nonsense in brain when I get that way. So I’ve been quiet. And busy. And meh.
But wait, I see a light at the end of this tunnel and it is called SCHOOL! Just a snippett of time each week day that I can be more than just ‘mummy, can I have ….??? Can I …..???’ Even our youngest is going to nursery for a few hours each week.
they may take our lives [food, clothes and money], but they’ll never take our freedom! [At least in term time …]Historic facts may need checking on this quote.
Ok. So the Scottish battle of Stirling Bridge may be a slight exaggeration of where I’m at, and please, don’t get me wrong, I love my kids dearly, they are my absolute world. I remain a little apprehensive of some of the things that have been doing the rounds about returning to school. But it has been pretty tough when the world has been locked down, we live in a house we have outgrown and there are four beautifully exhausting little people here 24/7.
I don’t give in to scare mongering. I find out the facts first hand and go from there. And my kids will be returning to school on the 7th September and to be honest they can’t wait!
You’ll be seeing much more of me and I of you. You may say it’s ironic I’m looking forward to the kids going back when I work from home for the main purpose to see more of them – however – have you had to change your work setting? Working from home is amazing. But not as easy as it looks hey?!!
Exciting times are ahead, new normal or not, we still have good lives to lead. Have yours gone back yet? How are you feeling about it?
