So today I woke up. I know this is hardly breaking news but today I woke up.
Life can deal a terrible set of cards at times and my goodness I’ve had my fair share of folds, but today I woke up and thought… I have health, I have a beautiful daughter and things could be a lot worse. So after a very organised yet stressful morning (the kind where you have every intention to make yourself look presentable – reality you’re dripping in sweat from rushing to the 67543 places you needed to go), I sat down, laptop open and thought it’s time to introduce blogging into my life. A hobby that is needed to not only get my thoughts out of my already crowded mind, but to keep a record of life, it flashes so quickly.
Being a mum at 22 was never the ‘plan’ but sometimes life just throws you it’s own plans, and it turns out being things that you need to experience in life at that moment. To be honest I never had a set plan of how I expected my life to go, despite the fact I claim to be an organised, logical person. It’s always been pretty touch and go from being young. But the one thing I was certain of came along January 2015. My life changed and made sense finally. It is pretty cliche but, and I’m going to type this through squinty ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this cheesy line‘ eyes – but love is completely different when it’s a child. It’s not like the love you have for your husband, wife, cat, dog, etc. It’s so innocent and pure. Note to self, keep this in the forefront of the mind when rocking them back to sleep for the 25th time at 4am.
So anyway, introductions aside I thought I’d just do a short post to say welcome to my blog. So maybe I don’t know the direction this is going right now – but its a starting point, let’s see where it takes me. I just hope to have fun, a happy place where I can log my daily doings, daughters milestones and vent.
Here it is. My first post. Now let’s see where this takes me.
