Silence, new employment and moving on

I have been busy and my blog has been graveyard-quiet, for the past month. I cannot actually believe that almost 30 days have been ticked off the calendar and our lives so very quickly!

The month has brought a lot of changes for us as a family. I found a new job(hurray!), Alex has been to Greece for a short spell and Emma has gained a new friend through my employment. Due to its nature, I will keep the details of my new job private on the blog, but it is going well and everybody involved has been working hard at adjusting and adapting to new routines and patterns.

The blog has subsequently suffered but I am back with great news regarding my blogging “career”, so to say. The lovely ladies at BritMums Live have invited me to read one of my grief blog posts at the conference as a keynote blogger. I haven’t had much time to give it a lot of thought but at the end of June hundreds of bloggers attending this year’s BritMums Live will hear about Georgie and the devastation his loss left in our lives. But more importantly, all of those bloggers, many of whom I count as friends now, will all HEAR about my precious boy, isn’t that so amazing?

In spite of my silence a number of brilliant brands have approached me in May and I have a few product review posts in the pipeline as well, do keep an eye on all the great stuff we have been trying this month!

Anyway, time to dash, do leave a line to say how you have been yourselves this past month and chat soon!
