Blogging: The awkward return…


How do you start a post when there is so much to say and no words to say it? It’s a tough one… I’ve had a little break from blogging, it started  for so many reasons I don’t know where to start. So I’m not going to even try and explain. However there is just ONE reason for my return and that’s a much easier place to start!

I miss it, I miss the enjoyment of posting and interacting with my readers, I miss the blogging community, it’s love, support and encouragement and most of all I miss the outlet for my creativity!

The future of The Freerange Family

So here’s the plan, I hope to be back for good now, but a few things have to change. My primary role in life is being a wife and mummy and I need for that to be safe so despite returning to my blog I will not be returning to the quantity of posts I once aimed for. I hope to post a couple of times a week and share more of the real goings on within our lives. They say quality is better than quantity so lets hope that’s how it pans out!!

Also, despite being a parent and a home schooling one at that I do have other passions and hobbies so I hope to include more of that adding to the authenticity of my content.

Blogging return

I have been rather busy on Instagram during my break, if you’d like to see what I’ve been up to I’d love you to pay a visit to my new instagram accounts @herbieandfriends and @Tuckerthecob

If you have made it to the end, congratulation! Thankyou for sticking with me, I look forward to being around a bit more!

And then the fun began...

Move forwards without fear?

I am scared, totally terrified. I have no idea how to move forwards without fear for the future. I have questions that I’m not even sure I really want to hear the answers to. In all reality I doubt any one actually knows  even if I was feeling brave enough to take the information on board! But is time for me to put my brave pants on and get this written… Continue reading

The 11 things tag… Find out a bit more about me!

I am excited to get writing this post, Big thankyou to Mum Muddling through for tagging me! I love writing this kind of post especially when I’m suffering a touch of writers block!!

What are you best at?

Wow, now there’s a question! In all honesty I think it’s probably putting myself down and doubting myself. I really struggle to believe in myself and often doubt my ability to do or cope with things! Sorry that’s a bit of a negative response to what I’m sure was supposed to be a positive start to this list!! Continue reading

My Ultimate Bucket List

I was challenged by Laura over at Mummy Lala to complete my Ultimate Bucket List and I am a sucker for a challenge so here goes!

I love lists and I have a fair few buckets in my life (We have horses, what can I say!) so this shouldn’t be that hard right? Wrong! I apparently am not very ambitious… I have just sat staring blankly at the screen for 5 minutes! I guess that says a lot in itself but I like to think of it as contentment!

Ok I’m gonna do this… Continue reading
