I'm already torn...

Every so often you'll find I write a "Arghhhh I've got so much going on, I don't know which way to turn" kinda post. This is one of those. So please feel free to click on the little cross in the corner if frivolous, cute northern bird doing a teapot pose in pretty clothes is what you came for today. Fear not, said tea pot pose will be back tomorrow though. 

I'm a little teapot, short and stout....


Although, in the main part I focus on the clothes, I do occasionally use the blog to mind dump really, it's really therapeutic to have somewhere to offload all your thoughts and work through them methodically. Most people would write a list or talk it through with a loved one, but no, I feel the need to share it with you lot. Aren't you lucky huh?

So anyway... Here's the deal. Mr B and I have just entered a deal to rent a shop and flat, all very exciting. Both of which need a hell of a lot of work before they are liveable/workable. A huge challenge, which we are already getting our teeth into. 


It's gonna time, a whole lot of precious time...


By the way, none of my ongoing stuff is negative. It's all bloody fantastic, I just have a lot of it going on at once! 

On top of new ventures, of course, we're packing up the current house. Dealing with all the things that come with a move. University is in full swing again but as you can imagine, a full time degree takes up a lot of my time. I also have my job at SLiNK Boutique which I love. And then, there's this little space, which, takes a lot of time to maintain. The posts don't write themselves, nor do the emails answer themselves, and with a huge influx of events, I am trying to split my time accordingly. Sadly I've had to say no to a lot of the events. The time spent travelling to London and associated costs are just too much at the moment. 

Work, uni, blog, work, uni, blog... You get the idea...


Along side all this wonderful, yet time consuming stuff, theres my babba, the apple of my eye. I have to try and not be too stressed or busy in order to spend quality time with her and make her feel special. And there, at what I'm sure he feels is the bottom of the list is Mr B. My constant, the one who puts up with my stressing, and crying, and irrational panic attacks. Truth of the matter is all the above stuff pales into comparison when it comes to my family. Nothing makes sense without them. 

My everything. 


So I guess what I'm trying to say is, if I seem a little absent and posts are few and far between, it's because of all the other cool stuff going on at the moment. I love this blog and I will try my absolute hardest to maintain it, and contribute to it, but I think I have to remember that the world won't end if I don't post! 

So help me bloggy gang. What do you do when you're juggling all of life's commitments? Any hints and tips, maybe some organisational stuff? I certainly need all the help I can get!!!

  1. I think the main thing for me, and the hardest thing, is saying no to people before I reach saturation point. When I become overwhelmed I become ill, or I explode, and that's in no one's interest, least of all mine. After watching dynamics in places I've worked, I think as women we can take lessons from men. We can say no, it's not about being selfish, it's about self-preservation and making sure we have some energy left for the important things in life, like family

  2. That all sounds absolutely amazing and fantastic! Although juggling can be so hard I am so sure it will all be worth it.

  5. Yay, well done on all your new ventures! Team Bebes is on the up. If I can give you any advice it'd be to get into a sleep routine - hot bath/shower, lavender pillow spray, all that jazz so when you get to the end of another manic day you drift off and sleep like a bubbins. x
