So it's Halloween tomorrow night and the shops have been full to the brim with pumpkins, witches and other scary-ish paraphenalia. I don't know what it is, but I just don't get Halloween at all.....what's the go with it? I know it's huge in Northern America, but I never knew anything about it as a kid, but now it's taking over. Thank goodness we are going to a BBQ tomorrow night so I won't be home for any trick or treaters....lol I'm all for getting into costume at any possible opportunity - I LOVE dressing up, but why would you want to dress up ugly and scary? Hmmm.....oh well, at least it means that we are on the countdown to Christmas, which is my absolute favourite time of year.....I've already started my shopping, half planned my table decoration and mentally decorated my Christmas tree - obsessed much?
Well, it's been months dear readers....and I would not be surprised if nobody is reading anymore....I have been inexplicably and inexcusably absent! Ok, not inexcusably - my little boy has been keeping me VERY busy!! I'd forgotten just how much time (and how little sleep) is needed for tackling the demands of a small person. I'd become used to a very independent nearly 4 year old and the newborn/infant phase was a huge shock to my system. However, we are getting back to something like normality, and that means blowing the cobwebs off my poor neglected blog and re-injecting life into it....or so I think at this hour of night anyway.....
That's all for now....no profound thoughts, no witty repartee....but I am back and intend to remain so! Hello to all who are still following and if you do happen to spare a tiny moment to comment, you know I'll love you forever!!
Well, at least it would be if I could remember all the things that have been happening! We've had our house on the market (yuk!) and had offers accepted and fall through, offers rejected and lots of houses not worth offering on.....it's an incredibly stressful process!
On a brighter note, I am completely besotted with my gorgeous little boy Wesley. He is 6 months old now - yes 6 months (and I have no idea how it went that fast!!). A little ray of sunshine - such a smiley, happy wee thing and his big sister Sophie is totally in love with him too. It's so gorgeous to watch them together. Makes me so thankful that I can stay at home and just be a mum.
I was thinking the other day after someone corrected me for saying, when asked what I do for a job "I'm just a mum"....they said "Just? far out - hardest job in the world.....say you're a mum and people's jaws should drop if they had any idea what you do!!" Apart from being VERY affirming, it did make me think.....often the things that we struggle with are the things we label ourselves with.....so I'm making it my mission to chuck out labels in my life!
Oh my, I guess the demands of a newborn are a little more than I remember! Too busy playing and enjoying my gorgeous wee boy (and negotiating with his big sister!) to get online as much as I used to....this will probably be the norm for a while now.....must try and blog more, but feel like I have mush for brains and nothing much to say!
Hopefully one day I'll be that intelligent, insightful woman again, but for now.....haha
It's hot and humid and I'm feeling a bit meh....top it off with being very tired from inexplicably waking up almost on the hour every hour last night and today I'm feeling a bit precious. I need a hug!
Well, oops gain! Me Time Monday somehow got lost in cyberspace last week.....it was the day before my birthday, and I guess I was distracted - oh well, it's not like a lot happened that day anyway!
Tuesday however, I was woken by my daughter singing Happy Birthday - so cute! And I was spoilt all day long with phone calls, texts and gifts from friends and family - I am so blessed to have all these wonderful people in my life!!
So, now I'm 35 - I don't feel it, I've been told I don't look it - what's a number?
