25 May Thoughts Plans Ideas…….
So this blogpost has been a little while coming, kind of just simmering on the backburner for a bit now, just waiting about until I had a clearer view of where I want to go and what I have to say (which MAY actually be of some value to you guys, coz you know I’m more than capable of saying LOADS of things, just maybe not all that enlightening?! 🙂 )
Aaaannnyyways…what’s truly been resonating with me lately and what I guess has been a dominant interest, focus, passion if you will, is…well…my life! NOT just my life!! (not QUITE that vain. Really!!) But I guess my type of lifestyle? Where I am at the mo? Ok so an example being my choice to be a SAHM, meaning we are currently raising our children on one (full time) income ( and O.M.G!!! They just keep getting more and more expensive with age!!) but with the the benefit of a “full time” mum – will just quickly insert in here I in no way, shape or form am implying that this situation should be for everyone (don’t even know if it will be for us forever) it can be hard, also I REALLY do appreciate us mums/women/parents are all different, ALL freakin FANTASTIC and that we need to respect each and every family situ)
Ok…where was I???!?
Yes…soooo…it’s been playing about in my mind that there is surely other mums/women/parents etc out there that maaaayyy be feeling/living/thinking along the same lines as me (regardless really if you work, stay at home, work from home…) in that we would still like to retain our own identity and individual personality? I feel it’s important to still take care of ourselves (doesn’t need to be wildly extravagant -though could be!! 😉 – a bath? netflix? coffee?!) be attentive to our own health and fitness, rediscover or ‘newly’ discover our own hobbies, craft, interests, passions, goals etc. Whilst providing our best for the rest of our fams.
So I guess where I’m heading, in my longwinded way, is that I’d like to provide a sort of platform here for appreciating , encouraging, applauding, listening, learning and sharing well, all things really about our everyday selves – and most importantly in a real life “normal” nothing too OTT kind of way that we can all hopefully relate to 😉
A place where we can find other mums who are killing it in their chosen fields, inspiring us along the way, a space where we can help each other out – even with the most boring and mundane things such as easy (healthy) ideas for dinner (yaaawwwnn!) or the more oh-so-important-and-necessary topics like what we’ve been wearing and where oh where did you get that? Please??? 🙂 Or where to sniff out the most divine bargains to beautify our homes, who’s keeping fit-ish 😉 and healthy and WHAT and HOW exactly are they doing it? Oh and the CRAFT people!!!
Do you get my rambling drift? Quite frankly I am still a tad vague-ish about where this may be heading myself but I guess what I’m most sure of is that I would love a place to just hang out with other mums/women like myself (again…NOT VAIN!!!) who are just going about their normal everyday lives, nothing overly glamorous, just women who love their families, fashion, craft, keeping fit – ish and healthy, love a good recipe or three, want a beautiful cosy home, explore new interests and swap stories. You know, kind of like a morning cuppa at the local cafe with your besties…on steroids!!?!
Omg…exhausted!! I really do hope I made some sense here?! I feel a little like I have a constant flow of random new ideas just spilling out of my head about this lately. I’d LOVE to hear any of your thoughts and ideas…even suggestions are most welcome! I’m thinking along the lines of a “big girl” virtual mag type vibe which celebrates and inspires the stylish homemaker? Yeah…let’s go with that!!!
Thanks for listening to me…really 🙂 and congrats if you made it this far!!! 😉
