Hello again (Peeks out sheepishly, blushing slightly and pleading guilty to blog-abandonment...)
I know, it’s been a while. A long while actually. And First off, to the few followers who were kind enough to follow my blog, I’d like to apologise for going AWOL for so long....the only explanation I can offer is that I’m crap at maintaining things – you only have to look at my head to see six months worth of dark roots to verify it. And a blog does require a certain amount of maintenance. See, I started to get a bit stressy with the whole thing – Looking at other fabulous mummy-blogs with their fabulous mummy-owners who could find something witty, interesting or amazing to say on a daily basis was pretty intimidating to a newbie-blogger like myself. The relentless social media thing to promote my blog was starting to take away from time actually being spent with the child I was blogging about, and I was struggling to think of topics to write about.
So I thought I’d take a break. I just didn’t imagine it would last for four months.
Anyway, I’ve missed blogging, and for some time I’ve wanted to come back to it, but always put it off, thinking “Nobody will be interested anyway...” “What’s the point; I’ve left it too long...” and other things to that effect. Then, when I came back from my summer hols, I had a message on twitter (which joined my blog in total abandonment) from another Mummy blogger asking me how I was and saying I was missed – and I thought, “Sod it, I’m going back to blogging.” So, here I am. (Thanks Lynn J )
In the past four months, not much has changed – I’ve still not found my inner-goddess. Apparently, she got a bit tired of waiting for me so she sought salvation in some tramp called Anna and spent some time ogling this annoying bloke whose grey joggers hung off his hips. I think she’s finding her way back to me though...I reckon riding crops weren’t her thing...Little T is growing up fast, has a trendy new haircut and has lost his first tooth, although this was down to cracking it and having it removed by the dentist. Boys, eh?
Despite my earlier reference to it, I did waste a few days of my life reading “50 shades of Grey” and getting annoyed that someone with such limited writing talent has been able to make millions from unsuspecting women who have now painted their bedrooms red. I also spent a week reading the “Hunger Games” trilogy which chewed up 50 shades and spat it out on the shagpile carpet. Read them if you haven’t already, preferably before you watch the film.
I fully intend to keep this up now...I won’t be blogging daily. I’ve made my peace with the fact that I just can’t – I work full-time and have a child and a home that need attention. I suppose my husband deserves some too. I don’t have the luxury of getting much time alone, so I will aim to post at least once a week and will do more if I can. Anyway, quality is more important than quantity. I tell Big T that all the time...
I do hope that those who were kind (or bored) enough to read in the beginning will join me again and forgive me for my neglect. It’s nice to be back.
