The last time I logged into my blog was February 2017 – over 6 months ago!
Why? Honestly as cliche as it sounds, life took hold. I lost my blogging mojo, bloggers were getting a bashing left right and centre for pretty much not doing or saying anything right. We were false, fake and out-of-date as mentioned by a well known Irish brand CEO.
I never spoke about my private life here – it’s pretty boring, to be honest! But my daughter was diagnosed with Autism last year. It wasn’t a shock as I knew for a month in advance that something wasn’t quite right. Queue the Mammy take-over and really then nothing else going on around you matters when your family need you. Queue lots of google searching, speech therapy and occupational therapy sessions and generally trying to understand this whole new world we were part of.
I had also just started a new job one month earlier doing what I love – marketing and social media. When you need to pay the bills ( hey, let’s face it blogging can be money sucking!!) priorities take hold. I poured any free time I had into my family life and my career.
Fast forward to now and I’m happy to say that Holly is settled in an ASD unit in her primary school and she loves it. Everything seems a bit calmer, but again not knowing when the next storm may hit. Until that storm, I’ve decided to get back to this ol’ blogging business and sure if anything it will keep me from watching reality TV! I will have a few post over the next couple of weeks. Updates may be “bursty” but bear with me!
Missed you all, chat soon!!
