Why I Took A Break From Blogging

Hello! It has been so long since I last posted on my blog. Thank you so much for sticking with me! I thought I would just take some time to fill you in on where I have been and why I felt the need to take a break from blogging. 

Zero Blogging Motivation 

One of the main reason why I needed a break is because I majorly lost my blogging motivation. Blogging started to feel like a chore rather than something I enjoyed. I'm sure any other blogger out there can agree that when this starts to happen a break is well and truly needed. I decided I would spend time with Ava Mae and my family. 

Maternity Leave Ending 

My maternity ended at the beginning of July and I returned to work full time. This is why I am glad that I took some time out to spend with Ava Mae. I started to feel like blogging was taking me away from the precious time I had left with her on maternity leave and wanted to make the most of the last few months I had off work. Returning to work was hard and really tiring but luckily for me I get the school holidays off which means I will soon have six weeks to spend with my little squishy. Only going back for a few weeks before having the holidays off is great because it means I can steadily ease myself back into working and not feel overwhelmed with it all. I also feel like I have got routine back into my life. I thrive off routine and I really did not prepare myself for how hard maternity leave would be as my daily routine totally went out of the window! 

Mummy Friends 

I have always struggled with making and maintain friendships. I am such a shy person and get that awful anxiety which comes with it. Whilst on maternity leave I set myself a personal goal of making mummy friends. Luckily I found a local mums group and have met some lovely ladies who I now consider to be my friends! I no longer feel like a complete loner and it has helped so much with my confidence. 


If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed a few holiday snaps in the sun. I was luckily enough to get away for a break with my mum whilst on maternity leave. Sadly Ian had to stay home as he used all his holiday days when Ava Mae was born. It was hard to be away without my hubby but I had such a lovely time with my mum and Ava Mae, a much needed break! 

Upcoming Posts?

My last post was Ava Mae's One Month Update which is pretty crazy as she has now turned seven months! It will take me forever to catch up on her monthly updates if I do them individually so I plan on doing a few months together and then carrying on with her normal monthly updates after that. I also have a few reviews planned as well as some weaning posts as we have now started our weaning journey!

I feel a little wobbly and I'm sure my posts will be a little hit and miss while I get back into the swing of things but it feels great to finally be blogging again!
