since this blog will be all about the things I like and am passionate about, I thought I would start off by telling you a little about me.
I am a 39 year old single mother of three, who works in the call centre of a big mobile phone retailer and I live near Preston in the UK. My shifts and my commute are long and the kids 20, 15 and 11, are keeping me busy, so squeezing in hobbies and interests has always been difficult. Lately I have become quite stressed with my busy life and figured there was something missing… ME TIME!
I am quite a creative person, have been knitting and crocheting since I was a little girl (in Germany where I come from this always has been a big thing) and now have become interested in sewing as well as spinning which I have taken up about a year ago. I would also love to do something about the extra weight I am carrying , oh and maybe learn an instrument! As you can see, I am bursting at the seams with plans.
So, I decided that I need to take some time out regardless of how busy I am and soon found out that getting sleep is not all we need to actually chill. I have started getting up earlier or just taking that extra hour at night time, depending on how my shifts were and found now that I can actually explore all the creative urges I have I am far more chilled out and happy.
This is my third attempt at a blog. The other times I kind of let life take over and buried it in the depths of the internet, but now I am a bit more determined to get things up and running and keeping it that way, so if you are into crafty stuff, music, working out and people in general, keep and eye out for me as I will post at least once a week.
