Guess who’s Back…

on January 5, 2016

Happy New Year! Sorry- bit late for that I guess but previously regular readers of this blog will know I’m not one to set the clock by!

I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post. Over 3 months. Crazy how time flies.

I started blogging in 2013 and absolutely loved having the space to get my scrabbled little head out there.
Sometimes I was funny, sometimes serious, sometimes I reviewed stuff, but I was always me and always honest and people actually liked it  (they told me and I was shortlisted for an award n stuff!) and then I just stopped.
It wasn’t a consious decision. One day just rolled into another and I got out of the habit of it.
I stopped thinking I had stuff to say. There was, and is, the huge humanitarian crisis in Syria, people closer to home like my lovely friends Julia and Liz were talking about really seriously sad and difficult times and it felt to self indulgent and ungrateful to be whinging about the kids or Mr L.
Other bloggers were going absolutely stratospheric like the incredible Mini Travellers and the fabulous Honest Mum and guess I just thought oh fuck it, my little blog is never going to take off like, what’s the point. Somewhere, I lost the ‘space and time for me element’ but today, today after a long time I feel like I’ve got stuff to say and so, whether or not people read it, whether or not my blog builds again or I find the energy and momentum to take it the places I want it to go, I’m writing it so- enjoy, it feels good to be back.

    I think you need to love what you do! I write things that come into my brain, there was a point in time when it used to get me down that my blog wasn’t taking off like others, now I’m in the mind frame that I’ll write for me, when I want about what I want. If people read it great, if not great! I look forward to reading more from you this year x
