I have no right to call myself a blogger, not even a part time blogger. Truth be told I haven't written since August and I have really missed it. It is probably quite clear what excuse I am going to give... life has just been really busy.
If you have read my blog before or follow me over on instagram (mamabrookes) then you will know we currently live the Middle East. My husband and I both work in the same school and we have been away from the UK for just over a year now. The meant our summer was spent driving up and down the M6, visiting family and friends in England. This didn't leave much time for blogging.
Then our return to Abu Dhabi saw our youngest join us at school in FS1 as well as Sam and I both being promoted into middle leadership. Basically what I am trying to say is that life has been hectic! I am constantly tired #mumlife #teacherlife
Because I have taken on this role at school I feel guilty for thinking about spending time writing for myself when I could probably be doing school work. There is always something else you could be getting on with in teaching, your job is just never done. That coupled with my new role and with the endless list of jobs a mother has meant that my blog has fallen to the bottom of the priorities pile.
I almost forgot about my little space on the internet. I pushed it to the back of my mind and believed that because I haven't written there was no point in starting again. Then I remembered the point of this blog. It is for me and it is for my children. I am a sentimental, overly emotional fool who loves to collect memories. It really doesn't matter why I stopped writing what matters is that I want to start again.
I want to keep sharing our families little adventure, I want to continue rambling about motherhood and married life. I may not be the most stylish woman in the world but I like to write about the outfits to throw on and I love to shout about small brands that I like to dress my children in. I would also like to write more about our expat family life and add a little more lifestyle posts here and there.
This isn't my job, this is my little hobby, my little escape from my day job.
What I am trying to say is that I am back. And I can't wait to get stuck in, if you'll still have me?
Hello, again. x
