An announcement....


Oh I so wanted to add a picture title with a baby scan onto this post. Perfect click bait material. But don't panic Mum, that is not the announcement! And, no we aren't moving to Dubai either. Although with the weather here at the moment it is something I would consider. Read on and it will become clear.

I have been feeling lost for the last few months. When big man was in nursery, I longed to be a SAHM. Six years on and I feel as though a part of me is missing. There is more to me than just my boys and not having a proper conventional job has it's issues alongside its rewards. I have to work around the boys. I have to miss opportunities as we have no childcare. But the thought of juggling a teaching role and the boys whilst my husband works away so much, just doesn't seem the right thing to do. So I decided to do what any normal person would do in this situation. Start a new blog!

Yes it is something I have been thinking about for years. Usually after I have returned from a blogging conference, inspired and full of ideas. Then I have put it to the back of my mind as it is too time consuming. That it may be, but the challenge of working out how to use wordpress has put a smile on my face. Given me things to think about when cooking the tea. Sparked my brain into ticking over.

So my new blog is called A Strong Coffee To Go. It is going to cover our days out and travel. It is the perfect excuse for me to hassle my husband into more holidays. Our big trip this year is to Costa Rica. It may turn out that my husband and I have totally lost the plot by taking the boys on an 11 hour plane journey to the rain forest. But if you don't try you will never know. Big man is already listing things I shouldn't touch thanks to Steve Backshall and Deadly 60. I don't even know why he thinks I would lick the back of a poison dart frog! There will be days out over here too, and it leaves this blog to focus more on food and my ramblings about the boys. If you would like to follow me on Facebook, I have a new page that is looking extremely lonely, so please give us a like, or if Bloglovin is your thing then follow me here.

If you like giveaways, then pop over to win a Thermos King Flask - could be the thing for picnics this summer - if it stays hot for more than a day.

So just to wind my husband up, where would my readers like me to visit next?
