BritMums Blogging Prompt: Rant!

I don’t normally rant that much online. I moan to loved ones but most of the time I just keep everything to myself and have days where I just cry.

BritMums have given me a chance to rant. Oh how much I could put in this blog post. I won’t as I do not want anyone to know ALL my issues, there are quite a few so I shall concentrate on just one! This one is a rant about myself. So here goes!

What the **** am I doing with my life?!

Yes I am a mum, I have a lovely family and love being a full-time mum but I seem to be missing something..hobbies, a purpose that is something other than a mum. I am stuck in a rut. I really don’t know what to do in life! I want to do so many things, but do I do them? No! I want to start baking, have been wanting to do that for ages..have I done any baking? No! I want to go back to Slimming World. Have I done that? No! But that’s because our money is going elsewhere at the moment and the night time classes are non doable. I want to volunteer but the weekends are the only time I can do this and to be honest I hardly see my fiancé at the moment, wish I could volunteer with Miss A with me! I want to start the garden but I need some lovely person to remove part of the driveway (anyone willing to do this for me, please?!!)

OK this is also a rant about why there are so many obstacles in my way of achieving what I want to achieve. Well BritMums, you did say I could rant 😉

The above is just a few things of many that I want to achieve but I have been up since 4am this morning and that’s what was in my mind at the time.

I will say one thing, I really need a good kick up the backside! This post maybe a blogging prompt but maybe it is the thing that will make me do all the things I want to achieve…apart from maybe taking up the concrete driveway!

    I must confess that i can relate to this totally, as my eldest is leaving school i am looking back through my life and wondering what i have achieved.

    Ah – I hear ya! It all becomes overwhelming doesn’t it? I know there are things round here I could volunteer with my daughter to do (local parks/nature reserves usually) or maybe you could try an on-line course? Hope you feel better about things soon xxx

    Urgh – sometimes it’s so hard for Mum’s to juggle their family and their own life. It’s so important that you make some time for yourself though, or you’ll go crazy. Even if you just make sure your fiancée minds Amelie one night or for a few hours over the weekend so you can go window shopping/relax and read a book/bake a cake! xx

    Oooh, I missed this blogging prompt – love a good rant!

    There are lots of things we could be doing that we never get round to, but it’s hard to do everything when there are so many more important things going on.
