Oh darlings, darlings. How are you lovely lot doing nowadays, anyway? As for me, y’know. I’m here, there, and frankly, everywhere. I’ve just come back from a holiday that seemed never ending, and am back with a new found motivation. Before I get carried away in the intro, let’s get right into it and delve deep into the 5th instalment of Like, Love, Loathe.
I am really liking my work life at the moment. Being away on holiday and having the flexibility to not have to depend on someone else for time off has helped me solidify even more that I want the “laptop lifestyle” that others speak of. My aim is to be a full-time blogger with a full-time blogger income to show for it, and live more along those terms. I have so many professional aspirations that I can’t wait to bring to fruition and I’m in a really good headspace at the moment where I feel that with hard work and a little dash of luck it can all be achieved.
Oh, life has been quite nice as of late, so what’s not to like? We spent 10 sun soaked days on our family holiday in the Costa del Sol, and it was such a necessary break. We had so much fun and made lots of memories! We stayed with family, but we also booked a holiday within a holiday I suppose and stayed at a beach side resort. That was the most fun part of our holiday and I can’t wait to catch up with all of the work commitments that I came home to and share with you a bit more about our holiday as well as so many of the travel posts that I am way behind on. And I call myself a travel blogger. Yeah, what a disgrace.
I hate to complain, I really do. But, I find it necessary to sometimes have a little moan. Don’t you? C’mon, you know you do. It’s human nature and all that. There have been lots to gripe about this week, from train strikes to random nonsense, but let’s just keep it limited to 2 bits this go round. Anyway, I have been back from holiday for a little under a week and I am already completely fed up with the weather in the UK. Like, seriously fed up. It’s rainy, windy, and the worst bit of it is that it’s getting dark earlier and earlier. Aside from the fact that you couldn’t get further away from the weather we had whilst we were in Spain, this is a time of year I have been finding more and more difficult the longer I spend in the UK. It’s can be so depressing and it just isn’t agreeing with me anymore. It’s a shame really because I love this country, but as they say, there’s a silver lining and all that. One that I’m hoping to soon find.
Another little gripe I wanted to have with you lot is the one of being a mummy blogger. How in the world do you guys make it happen?! I have a few weeks with the kids and I can’t find the time to post an Instagram photo (“Yaya, what are you doing, I wanna see … “) or write a post (“Why are you working, we’re on holiday. Come on, let’s play”) or anything else blog related. My theory is that because our kids don’t live with us full time, they try to squeeze the quality of every minute that we have together, which is why I don’t mind in the least putting myself and my blog on the backburner for them. What I do want to know though, is how do you full-time mummy’s who are also bloggers find the balance? Inquiring minds want to know.
That’s a little bit of what I’ve been liking, loving, and loathing this week. What’s on your like, love, loathe list? Let me know in the comments or tweet me!
