Its been a while since I have posted and I must admit I am really struggling with time on my blog at the moment. Currently I am desperately trying to finish my Level 3 in Forest School work, it’s been a huge task and lately I seem to typing away on the computer early in the morning and then grasping moments late at night when I come home from work, or some days I’m faced with a mountain of paperwork finishing an ecological impact mixed with holistic learning development. It’s slightly manic and I really cant wait to finish, a brilliant course but working full-time and being a mum makes any type of training hard!
Mix in being a part of the PTA for my daughters school, a Governor and also teaching Duke of Edinburgh one night a week and other things seem to be getting squashed to the back of the queue sadly.
Then I have the dilemma that I am an outdoor based blog. When the weekends come we try to get outside and make the most of our family time together. So does it make sense that my posts come when we have had family adventures and I really want to share a story?
It has aways been an aim of mine that we don’t get to involved with mobile phones, social media and computers, especially when its family time. Our summer was great this year as I made it a mission not to be the one behind the camera capturing every moment but missing the important ones. It worked and we had one of the most action packed adventurous holidays this year.
What I wanted to share is that I am still here, some weeks are more busy than others, we continue to have outdoor experiences and fun but like everything in life it’s about getting that balance. I know that when my Forest School training is over I have a lot more time to dedicate to my blog and do have a nice list of ideas that I would like to write about when I have more time.
