Back on Track????

I can't believe that I didn't post for the whole of April! 
Life has been sooo busy. 

Despite saying that I wouldn't take on another full time supply post I was persuaded to take on a four week position with a year 6 class in the run up to their SATs and have now been persuaded to stay on till the end of term.

No sooner had I returned to working full time and my mam was rushed into hospital. She is severely disabled and although I don't want to go into details her stay in hospital ended up being quite distressing for both her and the family so much so that we felt the need to take her home to be cared for. As a consequence my sister who is her main carer and also holds down a full time job has had to take on even more responsibility as she lives in the same street as mam and is the only one living close by. As my brother lives over 200 miles away he cannot help and so although it is a 60 mile round trip I have been trying to get through as often as possible, but it has meant little time for much else.

I've missed blogging though. I enjoy "chatting" to my readers and in turn following their blogs and reading about their to-ings and fro-ings, there's a great sense of "community" that develops here in blogland.

With that in mind I'm determined to get back on the blogging track, and getting back that lovely spirit caring and sharing that exists between bloggers.


  1. Life sounds challenging for you at the moment! Sorry to hear about your Mam, it must be worrying and frustrating not being able to spend more time with her or ease the burden for your sister a bit. Hope Mam gets better soon and that you can find some 'me' time, sometime soon too!
    Take care x

  2. Sorry to hear you had a hard time lately, hope all goes well with your mam.

  3. It sounds like such a stressful time for both you and your family. Hoping things get a little easier and less tiring soon. I think the blogging community is great, I know meeting up with some of the girls I'd met through blogging a few months ago changed my life (I know it sounds daft, but it was the start of me finding some confidence again). Blogging is a fab hobby, even if you have to take a break sometimes, the door is always open to come back xxx

  4. I'm sorry to hear about your Mum, hope things are a little easier and that the family are coping.
    Nice to see you pop up in my reader. xxx

  5. Welcome back. Family must come first of course. I hope all goes well. Hugs are coming your way.
    Love from Mum

  6. Hope all goes well for you and your family x

  7. Welcome back. Hope everything is settling down for you and your family.


  8. Sorry to hear about your mum, you must feel stressed out. Just catching up with blog reading, really like yours and you have done so well with the weight loss. I tried SW online but just gave up, they have given me a voucher for 12 weeks so am joining tomorrow. I agree though, the staying to group is just so boring and most of the time I reckon the class leader is secretly stuffing as mine always seem to get bigger each week!
