When Life Comes First.
How are you all? What has everyone been up to ?. Life has taken over here and all social media has just about taken a back seat since July. The only place I have been fairly consistent since July has been on my Instagram stories. There is so much going on here at the moment that having down time to blog/take photos or use twitter has been little or none. Over the coming months there are some huge changes coming for us some personal some work related. These changes are adding now to our workload and taking so much of all our times. When the changes start to happen from the 1st of October I am really hoping I will have at least an hour a day for myself.
We didn’t even get to the ploughing this year which is possibly the first time since 1998 when it was in Ferns, Co Wexford. Thats a long time going to this yearly farming event, none of us made it this year. The one thing I have been doing is Art again which I haven’t really done since Sid was born 8yrs ago. I used to do 24 weeks of art classes every year before he was born and then I gave them up. When the pressure of all the work happening on the farm started to stress me out I decided to dig out my art supplies and start doodling again. Some of the supplies were so old that the paint had gone lumpy in the tubes. I am by no way even remotely talented but I find it just so relaxing. All summer everyday I made one piece of art and I even started a new Instagram account to share my art on.
We had the whole back to school/ work stress of getting into a new routine and getting Sid settled into 3rd class and there is so much going on on the farm to get ready for all our ladies when they arrive. The only part of my break from blogging and twitter that I miss is the writing for the blog. I like putting down how I feel, What I like and what’s happening to have it to look back on in years to come. So we have one more week of chaos before the new changes start to kick in and I am hoping a better routine for myself. I am off to my 1st Art class on Monday night in 8yrs and I can’t wait and I have now just written my 1s blog post since July so maybe already small changes are happening. Fingers crossed.
