And so it begins…

So this is it.  My very first blog post.  Here goes…

Remember when you used to keep a diary? I do.  I remember lying in bed, waiting for the sounds of mum’s footsteps to descend the stairs.  Confident that the coast was clear I’d sneak out my hidden torch, dig around under my pillow until my fingers brushed over the tatty notebook that had become my regular outlet for my thoughts.

Perhaps it was just trendy at the time, or I’d seen someone on TV whimsically pouring their souls out to the book in front of them (conveniently covered with an equally whimsically voice over), but for whatever reason, I started to keep a diary.  And just as quickly as I had started, I stopped again.

Well here’s me picking that tatty notebook back up, putting pen to paper (so to speak) and recording my musings, experiences, challenges, triumphs and general anecdotes of my life.

Like sifting through a box of old photographs (it just isn’t the same clicking through pictures in a folder on your desktop), I love the idea of being able to revisit exact moments from my life.  Reliving the good times, hopefully learning to laugh at the bad.  And along the way raising a smile or two from a stranger, or reassuring them with my own mishaps.

This blog is personal, but as I recount the antics from my life, my marriage, my home and my travels I hope to touch on universal thoughts and feelings and connect with other like minded women.  We’re all navigating our way through an unknown life, let’s share a little, and do it together…
