Welcome back to our losarmstrongs blog - Our So Called Life!
Last post was in Summer 2007, when Dan and the guys built the home office (aka Shabin). I've tried to archive the posts so only the new 2009 ones show but can't seem to work out the technical bit so until I manage that, they will remain below this one.
Why have we started blogging again?
Well, life kinda took over the last two years. I started working again part time (currently working in church office part time, and Dan was based at home designing for clients from the Shabin. The girls are growing up fast, with 1 at nursery and 1 starting school last September.
Life has started to find a rhythm again so we're resurrecting the blog.
I'm trying to be more intentional with everything I'm doing now. I read other blogs which inspire me on one hand, but also leave me feeling frustrated and guilty. I love blogs like SouleMama and I love how Amanda Soule parents her children. I've realised that she's a full-time mum and that my expectations are too high for myself and my own life and limitations, but what I've figured out from reading blogs like that, is that I just need to be more intentional with my time and activities.
For example, I flit between the dishes and my computer, and the bathroom, and the tv etc etc etc. I need to discipline myself to actually give myself the intention to spend some time on Facebook, then move on to playing with the girls, then a cup of tea, then some TV time. Have I lost you yet? I'm trying to say that I'm going to try and stop multi-tasking quite so much, sit down and take time to smell the lilac blossom!
On another note, I'm busy working on some exciting ideas, including a space for crafting, so watch this space, crafty-friends-in-Chichester!
