Real Life

Real life has taken over at the moment in our household!

I have so much that I want to write about on the blog, but at the moment I just have not had time. But I will, the light is opening at the end of the tunnel and the mayhem has nearly finished!

So what has been happening that has made me be so busy? More

Some Days Are So Hard And Full Of Guilt

I was going to do a blog today about the lovely Secret Post Club parcel that I received today from the lovely Susie over at New Day New Lesson but I have had such a bad day that I had to write about that first.

I haven’t felt right since I had the bug on Saturday. I am really tired, I am not into eating very much, and generally still feel pretty sick, but have managed not too. I thought that I was over it, but maybe I was wrong, maybe it is a bug that is refusing to go, but regardless of that it has left me feeling like rubbish!

To top that off I have had a difficult day with Baba. More

101 Things in 1001 Number 3 Done!

Well it has been a busy week for my 101 things in 1001 days challenge. I have completed two items in the last week and now I have completed three, with the thanks to Donna.

Donna and I have known each other for a few years now. We first meet through childminding, and I then went on to work with Donna in her childminding business, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have a few things to thank Donna for, introducing me to The Secret, a book that I thoroughly believe in and one that I enjoy to read over and over again. Inspiring me to restart my writing, to stop talking about it and to start doing my writing course, and she has been a constant help with the bringing up of Baba, as a childminder and mother of three she knows what she is talking about!

But now I have inspired her, to begin blogging. More

Super Skinny Me

Baba is now 15 months old, and 15 months later I am still crying the weight that I gained when I was pregnant with him. I stood on the scales today and I still need to lose the 4 stone that I put on when pregnant. Which is an almighty challenge. Especially as I am not a person that likes to eat, I am one of these people who eats because I know I have to eat, I would never eat and eat because I love the food. I like the food, but I would never eat too much of it. So why do I have so much weight to lose? Well there is one major flaw in my eating I love chocolate, it is the only food that I love, and I can eat it all day long. Which is the main problem for me to lose weight. More

To Blog Or Not To Blog

I have again been reading a lot of blogs over the last few days and one of them really caught my eye – By Slugs on the Refrigerator. This blog really made me think about why I have actually choose to write a blog. Is it all for me or is it for other people and what is my aim for it?

The first thought that came into my head, was that I was writing my blog as I want to be a writer one day. I have always dreamed of being a writer, and I am doing my writing course so I wanted a place to put my thoughts down and practice my writing skills. But then I started thinking again and wondered if this was actually true. Yes I do want to do these things but is writing the blog, really as simple as that. I don’t believe that it is. More

New Year. New Me

Well I have read peoples blogs today and have had so much fun doing it. But it means that I haven’t done any housework, as am preoccupied with reading Blogs. Not a good idea.

One blog that really struck a cord was  by Josie. It made me think that I haven’t actually made any resolutions or plans for this year, and I have so many things that I want to do. I know that it is a bit late but I was thinking that if I don’t put something down I know that I will end up starting one thing and not finishing it and carrying on that cycle. So that when 2011 arrives I wont have actually completed anything I will just have a load of non starters, and I really don’t want that.

So I have thought about this all evening, and this is what I have come up: More
