I'm still here . . . .

With a husband away in Russia and a quiet baby asleep in the next room I'm here on this mid-week night trying to gather my thoughts, thoughts that are hard to access, drifting somewhere in this tired mind. 

Over the last few weeks I've found myself in a place of trying to find balance.

Almost every second of my time is spent taking care of Niah, her existence has all but consumed my existence and I wouldn't have it any other way, I've given myself to her completely and I always knew I'd be that type of Mother. But that doesn't mean to say that some times this can leave me feeling a little off balance. After-all I'm not only a Muma I'm also- A Wife. A Daughter. A Sister. A Friend. There is House work. Grocery shopping. Cooking. Laundry. And Exercise to think about,With the addition of, Time to be Social. Time for Creativity. and most importantly Time for Me. I keep thinking about those super moms who do all this plus 'bake cakes for the village fair' How do they do it?

Looking After Niah is the easy part, I'm loving every second of my journey through mumahood, It's everything else on the list that's tricky.    

  Everything in the physical realm will come back in to balance soon enough and I am in no way rushing to the future when Niah is older, time is going by too quickly already! So for now all that needs to balance is my mind, and my thoughts. To accept what is, know that I'm doing my best and hopefully without the attached feelings of guilt.

My blog posts may be sporadic , just know that I'm still here . . . . .

Early Moments Of Spring In Grey Winter Light

Instagram A lost community found for this digital age.

  On there I have found many authors of the blogs I already follow as well as a whole happy, joyful, creative community of lovely new ones. 

A constant stream running all through the day of Beautiful Images, and everybody is so warm and supportive of each other with their comments I've found it so inspiring.

These last few weeks I've noticed lots of people counting down the days until spring, I absolutely Love Winter and am in no rush for its departure, but like so many I have enjoyed a few early moments of spring, Like my Hyacinth bulbs starting to open.

Photographed in the grey Winters light creating a Beautiful harmony of two seasons.

Wishing you so much peace during the transition of the seasons.
