Catching Up and Looking Forward
its been a little while, sorry about that!
Lets Have a Little Catch Up!
There have been a few reasons for my absence!
We are very lucky here that Mark gets 4 weeks leave in December. With Arthur now at school too that obviously means he has that time off too! I try not to, but I also inevitably kind of down tools on the blog front over school holidays!
It’s also been the minor event that is Christmas! I haven’t written a specific post about it, which is rubbish of me but we did have a great time! It was the first year that Arthur really ‘got’ Christmas and it was so amazing to really see the magic through his eyes! Freddie really enjoyed himself too!!
We had Marks parents stay with us for two weeks, and so they were here for Christmas and New Year. It was lovely to have family here over this time and definitely helped us all get into the spirit of things, which can sometimes be tricky when it’s so not Christmassy here at all!!
So now we are already over a week into 2017 and I’m finally writing my first post of the year!
Looking Forward & The Exciting News!
if you follow me on Instagram (if not, you definitely should be!!) you may have spotted that I mentioned I had something exciting coming up.
No it’s not a baby.
I have been commissioned to write for Culture Trip. An online magazine style website helping its almost 3 million a month readers discover the world’s cultures.
So this month I will be writing a bunch of different articles all about the Seychelles!
I am so proud of myself for this! I would never have thought for a minute when I started this blog 3 years ago that I would receive an opportunity like this!
So, I will be shouting out on social media about this lots, so keep an eye out for when my posts go live! Also, if you’re looking for travel inspiration or want to know more about a country you’re planning on visiting, you should definitely check out Culture Trip!
Having an opportunity like this, has made me evaluate my blog a little. I, for now at least, am planning on taking a break from my monthly blog link up ‘my expat family’ . It was taking a lot of my time. Whilst I enjoy reading all the posts I feel it may have run its course a little. Instead I will focus that time on writing posts.
I want to start writing updates on the boys again (I don’t know why I ever really stopped that).
I also want to ensure that I continue to share lots about Seychelles. Information for people visiting, and an insight on our lives here.
There, I feel a little more up to date now!!
