A Fresh Beginning

To leave a blog behind that i have been working on for over 3 years is quite a daunting feeling, but it is quite exhilarating also. My time writing on Fun Being Mum came to end a while ago, i started to feel uncomfortable with the whole ‘parenting blog’ thing because, personally, i didn’t feel right sharing the most intimate details of my children and motherhood on the internet.

This past summer, i took a step back from blogging to discover exactly what i like, because in this technological day and age these things can be lost. I spent the summer making wonderful food for my family and guests, i started a bullet journal, which led to me buying a sketchbook and gouache paints.

I have gone from living vicariously through others in the evening spending hours online watching youtube, to doing the things i really enjoy. I feel more relaxed, i enjoy my free time more and ultimately i am sleeping lots better!! Heck i even read 2 whole books this summer… something i never made time for.

I’m going to share my fitness journey, because i am a woman and am always trying a new fitness schedule! Healthy eating regimes, homemaking tips and tricks, how we plan to turn our new house (which is majorly run down) into a cosy, comfortable home and also… I’m the Devonshire Woman… so there will be lots and lots of posts about beautiful Devon on the blog.

I am very excited about this new blog, my blank page, to fill with colour and life, it’s going to take me a bit of time to find my rhythm, but i feel more comfortable here. I hope you enjoy my new blog 🙂

    Hi Amy,
    I can’t wait to see what you are getting up to, and to see your fab days out in Devon (I miss the sea!).

    I’d love to see some pictures of your bullet journal spreads. I’d love to see how you use it to run your house 🙂

      Thanks Jo! I bet you do miss the sea, but it is beautiful where you live too.

      I plan to put all my pages on of my bullet journal on soon, it’s taken me forever to start up a new blog… never doing that again lol!

      Hope you and your family are well?
