I feel a bit like the blog and possibly even My Make Do and Mend Year has gone a little off track lately.
I have been invited to do lots of things and go to lots of things, which inevitably I have then blogged about, but they probably don’t really make for very interesting reading.
And there has been very little time for actually doing the Making and the Making Do and the Mending (and spending time with my family, cleaning my house etc) that I am supposed to be doing and blogging about.
It has been a slightly crazy month, with 2 trips up to London for the Observer Ethical Awards, and the BritMums BiBs, and speaking at TEDx.
To be honest, it’s all been a bit much. Along with everything else that is going on, all the things that I am doing for Make It Better, and my other hats I wear doing other totally non-related things, I am feeling overwhelmed, and a bit lost.
I have spent a lot of time gallivanting around the country, and spending time away from my family. And I guess I am just starting to question why.
It has been hugely flattering and I have been very honoured to do all these things, but it’s left me feeling really strange, and really unsure about some pretty fundamental things.
It is time, for me, for the blog, to hunker down and get ‘back to basics’.
I need to take some time to just stop (as much as I can..) and take stock, and re-group.
I need to make the time to get back to the essence of My Make Do and Mend Year. To actually spend some time, at home, practising what I preach.
Thankyou all for sticking with it, when the blog has possibly morphed into something different.
For the rest of the year, it will be full steam ahead with Make Do and Mend 🙂
