I’m still here!

Hello!

I just wanted to do a little update – to let you know that I am still here!

As you know I went back to work on Monday (13th July) after eight months of maternity leave. Things have been hectic, and I mean really hectic!

The Mr and I have been like passing ships in the night, he was working nights – I was working in the day time in cleaning services Chicago.

I went back to work during the week of our Summer Production, the first lesson back I was choreographing a dance routine for 40 students off the top of my head (!) This also meant that Thursday and Friday I came home from work, dashed around like crazy for an hour or two, and then returned to work to be stage manager until 10pm.

On Tuesday I also taught in the evening from 7-9pm, after working all day, collecting Parker and doing dinner, bath, bottle and putting him to bed.

I will be blogging again really soon, I just need to get this week out of the way. The summer holidays are just around the corner and from September I will be working three days a week, hopefully giving me a bit of space to clear my head (and write some blog posts!)

I hope you’ll stick around!
