What happenned to my Blog???

I am totally ashamed of myself (for many reasons, too many to go into detail here!):
Why haven't I managed to juggle going back to work and keeping up my blog?

It's like when you don't call a friend for a while, then it gets too long and you fell you can't phone them because it has been too long, then you feel ashamed, but you still can't phone them. Then one day you pluck up the courage and phone them and realise there was no problem in the first place and nothing has changed between you.

SO, HELLO BLOG. I am now a fully fledged part-time work-and-mother juggler (since end of Feb actually). 3 days at work, 4 days at home. Seems to be going well in terms of the childcare. If you remember a past blog about the worries of my Mother, then rest assured things are actually going pretty well. I have recently upped my hours by 1 day (short term) so Mother has him for another day a week and the childminder just one day still. All well. I'm the problem....

What happenned to my career-orientated self and my motivation? Did they pass out with the placenta? Answers on a postcard please.....


  1. I found that my view of life changed after I had Toddlergirl - work was no longer quite so important to me and yes, whilst I enjoyed it, I also enjoyed leaving it and spending time with her

    My blog has also suffered since I went back to work - I'm still finding the balance and I'm assuming it'll all work out in time... probably !

  2. Thanks, glad to know I'm not the only one trying to balance it all!
