Dear Blog

I know I’ve been neglecting you a bit (ok, a lot) lately. Im truly sorry, I do wish I could spend more time with you but at the moment real life stuff has to take priority.

And, I know that those who shout loudest shouldn’t necessarily get first, but when it’s two very loud, boisterous toddlers who can also turn on that adorable puppy eye charm at the flick the of a switch, I mean seriously, who’s going to argue with them??

I promise normal service will resume soon. In fact, I have a real treat for you in October. We’re going to Blog Camp!!! I’ll get to spend a whole day of quality time with you.

And no. I did not sign up just for the cake! *tsk*

I’m very excited as I’ll get to meet some of my twitter/blogger friends, who I’ve also been neglecting lately, sorry about that too!

I’m hoping to come away inspired, with some creative ideas so I can make you more my own & in the meantime I intend to work on this work/ life/blog balance thing!

Blog again soon!
Lots of love

Once Upon a Blog……

Well, I’m here! I gave myself that humungous kick up the ass that was required, finally stopped procrastinating and sorted out my blog. By that I mean, I decided on a name, theme, etc and then I nagged my husband until he sorted it!

The one thing that has stopped me blogging for so long was choosing the name. I puzzled over it for weeks. (Ok, months). It was actually harder than naming my children! The reason behind the name is a whole other story though.

I also started to wonder whether it was the right thing to do. Should I be whacking something else on my ever growing to do list? I struggle to keep up as it is! And there are so many bloggers I admire, how could I ever compare? And that I suppose, is the trick. I’m not going to, I’ll try anyway.

I’ve been writing this first post for so long now. Unfortunately, this means the equivalent to scrawling it down on the back of an envelope in that rapidly failing memory of mine. I can’t actually remember any of what I really wanted to write and I remember it sounding so much better in my head. I was intending on my very first post being pee your pants funny, but it’s not quite come out that way. Can’t have it all though, can we?

Anyway, I felt I needed to make my little mark in the Blogosphere. I’ve been squatting. Ahem, guest posting, on other peoples blogs for way too long now.

I don’t quite know exactly what form this blog is going to take yet. It will be to some extent a diary, a recording of my children’s milestones (although I’m a bit late with that one, but there’s still plenty more to come) a place to gather my thoughts, ramble in general and share my experiences. I was just about to type ‘pearls of wisdom’ but I can already hear the guffaws and that’s not what I meant about making you pee your pants laughing!

I’m not intending on this being solely a mummy blog, but my children have been here 24/7 of my life for the last three years and a half years, so I can’t ignore them.  I’ve tried. (That was a joke for those of you who don’t know me!) So, of course, elements of my parenting skills (or lack of them) will creep in every now and again.

And, we have some new adventures that I want to share, but that’s for another post……
