Life Lately

Oooops! I seem to have slid off the blogging horizon for a few days there.  But fear not. I haven't done anything drastic like trying to dye my hair again (more on that later), and me and baby are doing well. Life has felt pretty hectic lately, so I thought I would do a quick blog post to let you know what I've been up to and what's going on in this little old head of mine.

Blogger's Block
When it's come to sit down and blog recently I've really questioned myself as to what to actually type. This doesn't happen to me very often, but sometimes, sometimes I think what on Earth can I write that people would want to read? And as soon as I start questioning myself, that's where it all goes a little bit pear shaped. From not knowing what to write about, I then convince myself that nobody reads my blog anyway, and have I actually got anything interesting to say?  This extends to my Twitter...do I want to Tweet this? Is this even interesting to anyone other than my mum? And my Instagram...is this photo Instagram worthy? Probably not. 

I always seem to favour that worst case scenario, it seems to be my default setting.  But thinking like that is not healthy and quite frankly you don't get very far thinking that way.  Because I am who I am.  And whilst my Tweets may not be amazing, or my Instagram snaps not of London Fashion Week, I can only be me.  And if my mum is my only fan, then so be it (thanks mum).  So after my crisis of confidence and taking a few days off, I'm feeling refreshed and ready to blog, Tweet and Instagram to my hearts content!  

Pre-school Changes
My daughter now goes to pre-school for two full days and a morning a week.  It's really strange not having her with me all the time, and I'm still getting used to having the house to myself.  As I'm now in my last trimester of my second pregnancy I think as the weeks go by I'm really going to appreciate having some time to myself just to relax and chill out a bit.  At the moment I'm really enjoying time to focus on my blog, catch up on things and walk the dog at a little bit of a faster pace than toddler pace. 

Primary School 
Dare I put this on the post? Come November, it's time for us to start thinking of where our daughter will go to school.  It's such a huge decision and I've currently got a list of schools that we are in the catchment area for.  We have about 5 to choose from and I don't know if that's a good thing we have such a choice, or if it would be easier just to have one or two to pick from.  We are going to open day next week for one, so I will let you know how it goes! How my baby is big enough to go to school next year I do not know.

You my or may not remember my hair disaster that happened only a few weeks ago where I dyed it a nice shade of orange.  Whilst my hair is no longer orange, I'm still not happy with it, and quite frankly I want to chop it all off (my mum will do an audible gasp here, sorry mum).  If you follow me on Pinterest, you will see I've been secretly looking at pictures of bob's since earlier in the year, but I keep talking myself out of it.  

At the moment I am loving Caroline Flack's bob.  The dilemma is, is my lust for a bob pregnancy-hormone related? Will I regret having the chop after I've had baby? Hmmm, I'm not too sure.  Don't worry, I'm not going to get the kitchen scissors out just yet, but, I think I will give myself to the end of October and if I still want it short then I may just go for it before my due date.  Watch this space! 

Being Alone
My husband has been away ALOT with work at the moment and he is due to go away again in the next few weeks, after hat he is banned from all overseas travel for fear he might miss the labour! I really miss him when he's away and even though I'm on my own all day anyway with our daughter whilst he works,  not having him here in the evenings and mornings is really hard.  

In fact it's a bit lonely.  Not that I even want to go out or have friends round, because, quite frankly I'm in my pjs for 8pm (who am I kidding, we all know I'm in them well before that!), but it's just the fact that he's not here when I go to sleep and when I wake up.  

Due to the time zones our conversations are really quick, usually just before he goes to bed or before I go to bed.  It's given me alot of respect for single parent families (not that I know how that feels, but I think being on my own so much has given me just a tiny glimpse).  He has one more trip and then no more travel for him for the rest of the year. Hurrah! 

I think that brings you up to speed with what's been going in on the Bee household, alongside preparations for Baby Bee in November, time just feels like its going by very quickly.

Thanks for sharing my blogging journey with me, and I will be posting tomorrow too to make up for my short week last week, so please be sure to pop back, 

Hope you are having a great Tuesday,
