You may read that title and think it’s a bit odd her doing a welcome post 3 and a half years into blogging, but I feel like I need to start with a hello.

I’ve felt recently like my little blog has kind of lost it’s way over the last few months and if I am honest I have been falling out of love with it. I found myself producing mostly sponsored content or content I thought would be popular, with the odd glimpse of my real life and that’s not what I set this space up to be. Yesterday I received a message thanking me for this post telling me it made them feel better and it filled me with so much pride. I always wanted this space to show the true reflection of my life as a working mum with three young children, to talk about topics that interest me and share the journey through motherhood warts and all. My vision fell a little by the way side but I am determined to get that back.

Obviously with bills to pay and kids to look after and this being my full time income I am not about to stop working with brands but I want to find that balance and inject more of me back into the writing. Which is how last night as I tried and failed to fall asleep I came up with the idea for ‘a weekly’ post. Named ever so originally – the weekly. I plan for it to be a kind of series, a weekly newsletter if you like with no real structure. I know what your thinking – how well thought out does this plan sound.

In my head I know what I want it to be; I want to spend a few hours each week writing something for me whether it’s my views on a hot topic, a simple what’s going on in our lives or even telling you about the book I’ve been reading, maybe even a mixture of all three. I want it to be real.

Those of you who have been reading a while will remember the week in pictures blog post’s I used to share. I miss doing this but as I lost kids to school and nursery I realised without them I don’t actually do a hell of a lot that is photograph worthy so I guess this is my grown up way of progressing from there.

I have really waffled on enough now but I just wanted to give a little update with what’s new over here and to say thank-you for baring with me. Do expect some more weekly rambles from me – I hope to see you there!

    This sounds like a lovely idea and a really nice way of organising your thoughts each week. I’ll look forward to reading x

    Great idea! I felt like last year I did the same. Worked heavily with brands and then lost time to write about the important things. I’m trying to change that this year.

    I have been feeling the same with my blog recently – with sponsored content there isn’t too much time for anything else. I really need to get the balance right :/
