It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve blogged and I’m so sorry for ghosting you guys, but it was Summer holidays and I’m sure all the mums out there can relate to how manic it gets!
Lily and I had a great Summer, we went GoBoating, we went to Hever Castle, Priory Farm, Paradise Wildlife Park, and made a few too many trips to Blue Water which definitely hurt the bank account, oops lol!
It was also a really overwhelming Summer for me, I was in a car accident and without a car for several weeks, making myself and Lily dependent on my friends and family, as well as the stress of dealing with insurance companies and in the end having to pay to get my car out of the shop because I had reached the max on asking favors.
On top of the accident I dropped my camera while vlogging at Paradise Wildlife Park, and it took weeks for me to get it back, unfortunately the footage couldn’t be saved.
I was feeling a bit down over the Summer as well, I think I sometimes let social media and the the things other people say get to me too much, and it really affected me this Summer, I am learning some coping mechanisms to use in the future but it wasn’t an easy Summer mentally.
And on top of all of that I still had a 6 year old who needed to be entertained every minute of the day whilst I was still trying to work a full time job, let me tell you being a single mum over Summer holidays isn’t an easy task haha!
Regardless of the drama we did make some wonderful memories, which is something I’ve really been focused on this year, I feel like time is moving so quickly now that Lily is in school and somehow she went from being a toddler to a full on kid in a blink of an eye!
I’ve decided my on my new upload schedule which is every Monday and every Friday except from September 14th-26th as we will be on our annual trip to Spain and I’m going to be vlogging it and uploading 3-4 times a week.
I made a youtube video all about where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to that you can watch here!
I would also love to know what you go up to this Summer, what was the best moment and what was your hardest moment?
