Just a little post before I go off on maternity leave to say bye for now and thanks for reading! Don’t worry I’m not totally ignoring my blog, but I will be taking a break and then trying to blog when I can.
The last few weeks of pregnancy this time round feels very different to the first time. When I was pregnant with Stella I was working full time, looking forward to the arrival of my first baby with every intention of returning to my job after a taking a year’s break and totally switching off to concentrate on being a mum. But things happened in that time, my place of work went through some big changes and I also had changed, I had time to think about what I wanted to do. I loved being a mum but I knew that I didn’t want to be a stay at home mum, I wanted to work for myself but stay flexible. Life changes and priorities change, and with the support of my husband and family I was able to start my Etsy shop.
Two years later and my path has evolved from setting up the Etsy shop to blogging and personal styling. I’m still working hard to keep my flexible career going with no regrets. As I prepare for my second baby not only am I trying to imagine life with two children but wondering how I will juggle work too. I’m a one woman business so it’s really down to me to make it work; whatever the future holds I’m excited and ready for the next chapter. Who knows things could change direction again, but I’ll just have to wait and see! Also they’re not babies for very long so I need to take some time to concentrate on family life and adapt my working life later.
Thanks again for following, back soon! x
Would love to hear how you juggle work and family life?
