As usual the past 2 weeks seem to have been hectic. I have had so many blogs in my head and just no time to post and now they seem pretty pointless.
It dawned on me this week that in less than a month I will be back at work and my maternity leave will be over. This excites me and scares me. I had a taster day as it was a PD Day all about Mental Health and I knew it would be interesting so I decided to drop LO off at my mums and venture in to a world I havent lived for 9 months.
With the realisation that my maternity leave is over in just 2 and a half weeks I have tried to take some time for myself, usually while Ellie is napping. Ive not played on our playstation properly in months, I havent read a book in I dont know how long and I havent really had any me time. As a new mum (and still a mum grieving the loss of her first child) I have relished spending every waking (and unwaking!!!) moment with LO but it has been nice taking the weight off my shoulders just for a little bit. Ive indulged in Yooka Laylee (a game 😝) and have really enjoyed it. This is me, a mum, wife, rock…yet I am also a woman who loves playing video games and I want my daughter to grow up understanding that video games arent all bad.
