Well this is my first blog post and it’s currently 9.16pm on Monday 27th March. I’ve just remembered I am supposed to be Skyping my dad at 9pm as he lives in Trinidad and we haven’t chatted for a while save on WhatsApp! Whoops! Ok, I’ll be back once I’ve done that…. OK, I’m back. He’s not there. So, this photo was taken yesterday on Mother’s day. I was in my ‘mum’ attire consisting of a top I can easily breast feed in and jeans which are getting more and more threadbare on the knees by the day due to endlessly kneeling down to change dirty nappies! No longer is sick on the shoulder the only way to tell if you’re a new parent; it’s worn knees on your trousers too. Now, please forgive me if not all of my posts are enlightening or witty or even entertaining. It’s more of a cathartic release for me than anything else. I have no idea if anyone will be interested in what I am doing or saying but, if you are, great. I am happy to have your company. This process is quite unnerving for me, as I am someone who likes to please and I hate not being liked by people. So, to put myself out there to be judged by people, as like it or not, we all do it whether we mean to or not, is quite scary. Not everyone will comment on my posts and tell me what they are thinking, and I won’t always know who is watching, reading and following my life but I am being honest and open about my experiences as I love to learn and share and help others where I can so if any of you can relate to what I go through then I would love to hear from you.
Now I have a confession, I have a habit of starting things and not finishing them and I also have lots of ideas running around in my head, which can often be a bit muddling. It took me a while to come up with the title of this blog site and even still it may be a bit confusing and overly complicated, but hey, maybe that’s quite apt because this blog is about life being a work in progress. But to ensure that I do keep up this blog I would like to set up a few rituals and routines. One of them will be ‘Monday Musings’ I will always post on a Monday. I’m not quite sure yet if all of the posts will follow a theme or if they will be random. Let’s see what happens as the weeks unfold. But for now, I think this is enough. Hudson is currently sleeping, so, like a good mother so should I be! Night one and all. Night me. Well done for writing your first post! (This is part of my new positive self talk discipline! More about that another day!) xxx
