how I {don’t} fit it all in, part 2

This is the second part of a blog post on how I don’t fit it all in. The first one can be found here, the third here. *** Hello my dears! Me again! I had so many thought on that last post I decided to divide it into three parts. It’s something I’m constantly working […]

how I {don’t} fit it all in

Let’s chat. It’s been a while since I last sat down with you and had a proper chat, not just rushed through here like a whirling dervish. So I have had a few questions lately on how I fit it all in; art, blogging, mindful parenting, doing up our home, housework, reading… It cracks me […]
