Our careers as bloggers had got off to an enthusiastic and focused start and I think we’d done pretty well in wheeling out the old blogs. But as you may have noticed, you haven’t heard from us in a while. This is because ‘normal life’ has well and truly exploded during March – the amalgamation of Morts being away for a number of weekends working, being in the process of buying and selling a house, me doing lots of extra tutoring sessions, celebrating Oskar’s 3rd birthday, and more randomly, welcoming two baby guinea pigs into our lives.
Despite this slight chaos, we have actually managed to get out and about. Since our last blog we have had a brilliant day trip to Eastbourne, Oskar and I have had a fantastic long weekend in Copenhagen, a fun day out at a local lambing weekend, and most recently we enjoyed a gloriously sunny long weekend of camping and cycling in the New Forest. It’s just that none of these adventures have materialised in a blog post because as it is we have been burning the midnight oil just completing all the admin of daily life. Because of this, I have for the first time felt the weight of ‘blog writing’ as simply another chore on my do list, which is absolutely not the intention of this whole project! So, what to do? Any blog writers out there with advice? How do you keep on top of it? I really love writing the blog normally, so how do I maintain this? How do you prevent it becoming another thing on your ‘to do list?
However, with the busy period behind us and some time off over the Easter holidays, we are now having a little catch up and enjoying getting out and about and also making some time for some blogging, enjoying collaborating together to get it done. So – expect some more blog posts coming your way soon… a few catch up posts from Feb/March but some from our current camping adventures!
Hoorah…. The Big Adventure Family is Back!
