I’m Saying Goodbye to Blogging…

…for a couple of weeks. I need a little time to invest in my family, and get my head back into gear. Januray was really hard. I’m feeling much more the thing but I’ve come down from the adrenaline-run with a bit of a thump.  

goodbye I'll be back soon

There will still be a few scheduled posts during this down time, and I’ll be monitoring my email if you want to talk to me about anything. And of course, Apple, if you want to send me a free ipad to review, feel free to contact me. 😉

You know, I may lose readers and my online rating may fall but that’s okay. While I love this online part of my life and it’s really hard to walk away, I need to step back for a small time to focus on my family, and get myself back to a place where I can think clearly again.  I’ll be back like a tall daisy on a warm day, fresh with my face drinking in the sun.

What to look forward to:

* Be A Fun Mum is having a makeover thanks to Kate of Picklebums

* Opportunity to contribute from readers

* Fun ideas

* Craft

* Inspiration

* Love the Moment Challenges

* Giveaways

* Fashion

* Home ideas

* Food

* The honesty you’ve come to expect from me

I love what Be A Fun Mum has become and I contribute much of that to you, my readers. Thank you. Thank you for your encouragement, for joining my parenting journey and telling me about yours.  If you have anything to contribute or ideas to share, please leave me a comment below or email me.

Be A Fun Mum is not about me. It about us. Let’s make it all we can!

I’ll be seeing you…

    🙂 it’s only good for us when we also know when to stop ..
    hope you’ll be back soon though!

    also, if I may say so, I always thought that your very pretty header would stand out more on a lighter background (even white.. ) – looking forward to the new design.
    take care, see us soon! x

    Kelly a tear came to my eye when I saw the title but was relieved to see that you will be back. You are such an inspiration & your honesty about the struggles you go through with parenting makes your blog a place to go back to during my dark days to remind myself that we aren’t the only ones & we will get through this period. I hope you find the strength you are looking for. Wishing you joy & good fortune. S

    We all deserve a break now and then and with the amount of time and energy you put into your blog there is no doubt you need to renew your batteries a little. Enjoy the break, know that we in your online world will miss you and be looking forward to your return. Hopefully by the time you are back I will have by new blog up and running http://www.milkncookies.info and I will be able to share with you what you have inspired me to do.
    Happy holidaying

    Hi Kelly – just read your post and I think a break is good. I took a break from blogging over Jan (easy to do as kids on holidays!) and Ive stepped back a from the blogging community over the last few months. Felt a bit worn out by it all
    and need the break. Having come back in Feb – with changes in place that needed to be made – Im feeling refreshed. Am sure you will too.

    Have fun.
