We are off on holiday next week. Eep!
I've got someone I know to house sit for us and all is good, if somewhat hectic. We have signed the contracts on the new house in readiness and are just awaiting the final formalities before we exchange. I'm hoping it will happen while we are away *crosses fingers and toes*
To those of you still following my blog, thank you! I know I haven't been about much these past couple of months and your readership means the world to me. I promise, once the holiday and house move are out of the way, I'll be back on form.
I've made another important decision too. I've decided to step back from my freelance work for now. What has happened lately has made me realise that my family are most important. Tiny Ched is growing up so quickly (quicker than I ever imagined) and I want to cherish this time with him as a baby/toddler and give him as much attention as I possibly can. I guess I'm living up to my blog name!
I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, if I'm honest, as I've been struggling lately. I have also stepped back from my volunteer work - mainly because of the holiday and the house move. I hope to pick that back up after the summer.
Anyway, I'm rambling and keeping you from the most exciting news of all.
So? What have I got in store for you whilst I'm away?
I've lined up some awesome new bloggers to entertain you in between my indulgent Silent Sunday posts (and one other very special post I have planned which I hope comes together). They are all brand new bloggers who only started their blogs this year. In fact, some of them have only been blogging a month or two.
They are all really lovely ladies and I'm so excited as they have written some fabulous posts.
I'd really love it if you could show support for them by commenting, visiting their own blogs and tweeting/following them. I remember a couple of years ago when my blog was brand new and it was the love and the support of the amazing blogging community who helped me get my feet on the blogging ladder.
So, without further ado, here's who will be guest posting for me and when:
Tue 14th May - Jill from Delicious Designs
Thu 16th May - Claire from You And Me Are Family
Tue 21st May - Sarah from Stay At Home Mum - In Training
Thu 23rd May - Stephanie from Storybramble
Tue 28th May - Lucy from Baked Potato Mummy
Thu 30th May - Françoise from The Little Gang In Paris
Tue 04th June - Millie from Toddles And Tantrums
Please show them lots of love. I'll be attempting to schedule some tweets to promote their posts but would be so grateful for any help you can also offer.
With that excitement, I'll love you and leave you all, dear readers. Take care and see you on my return...and thank you again.
Florida here I come!
Woohooooooooooooooooo *runs off screaming with bikini in hand*
