Working mum life

I’m Back…

I have been MIA for a few months… I need some real time out for myself and release some of the pressure I have been feeling across all areas of my life. Although I haven’t been posting, I have been writing blog posts on an ad hoc basis…. Whilst I am slowing getting back on the blogging wagon, I think it might be nice to see what I have been up to over the last few months.  Some here you go, enjoy!!

Fitness Weekender – Written back in February


I am just back from a fitness weekend in Torquay, Devon. It was fantastic, just what the doctor ordered. Kiddies were back home with hubby and I was off having fitness filled days, party and cocktail filled nights and feeling like I was back in my twenties. The classes were so much fun (the music and the moves). I know this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those of us that enjoy working out it was fun!!! Not all the classes were for fitness fanatics and they had a range for beginners to advanced. The vibe was inclusive and friendly – it was just want I needed…time out, time to myself and just plain old time!!!


I slept kinda late (past 7am is late in my book) and once I was up I only had to look after Moi…what a life!! I give props to hubby who really managed the 4 day/3 nights with the kids, whilst I was away and didn’t complain or make me feel guilty (although he had a little help from my mum with cooked food – everyday)…He just took it in his stride… So Hubs – Well done Honey!!!


Now with this time out…all for me, I realised how well deserved it was and how I need to do it more often – a few times a year (ideally, but not very likely, but lets work towards something).  So ladies – please don’t forget you! In these child rearing years, I know that we chose to have children and we need to take the rough with the smooth and yes this is what do, but ladies there are times when you need to just take some time back for yourself  – whatever that maybe and make sure you use that time and space to rebuild yourself, relax and just chill out…it is worth it!!!
