Here, but not here

Just a short note to let you know that in line with my goal of being a planned, patient and present mother to my kids, I am taking a week or so off the blog.

I have some fabulous posts lined up, some from me and some from wonderful Australian blogging friends. I have also scheduled social media posts and my newsletter, so while it might look like I am here, I am not really here!

My plan is to read books, play with the kids and enjoy the sunshine of my home town. I am so super lucky to have family that let us stay and enjoy their hospitality. The kids have the most wonderful time as it is pretty much like staying at a resort – pool, projector screen TV and games, quad bike track, cubby house, sand pit, trampoline, air hockey table and more!

A significant lesson I learnt last year when I was feeling burnt out, was how important time off is. I have set in place systems (like guest posts, out of office replies etc) to ensure that when I come back, I am not coming back and being instantly overwhelmed by a back log of work. I will be back at work refreshed and ready to tackle new projects with enthusiasm and energy.

Have a great week and I hope you have some time for a break too.
