Day 2 and I’m still here!



Well I’ve managed another post today so things seem to be going well. Today has been a bit of a lazy day here and I managed to finish the book I was reading on my kindle, it was Jeanette Winterson’s “Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit” and I really enjoyed it. I’m on a bit of a crusade at the moment to read either classic or groundbreaking books and I guess this fitted into that category. It is semi-autobiographical and tells us of Winterson’s coming out in a 60’s working community with a very devote Christian family. I laughed and got stirred by this book and read it in just over a day which is always a good sign. I also had an amazing back massage this morning which I won in a competition and the hubby cooked tea so win, win, win for me.

So as promised I shall introduce you to my rather crazy yet wonderful family. I’ll start with the boys as most of my ramblings will probably be centered around them so here goes. First of all we have the rather gorgeous Elijah…

This is my awesome big boy! He has just gone 4 and is utterly wonderful. He’s a very special young man who was 15 weeks early weighing just 1lb 15oz. From the day he came into this world he has done nothing but surprise us and make us utterly proud of him. He’s a very bright, charming young man and very very cute. He’s also famously known as Lijah and Dibble.

Secondly there is Noah…

He’s the second child we never quite thought we’d get but are utterly chuffed we did. He is a happy little ball of fun (don’t be deceived by the picture) and is a joy to be around. Scares us as to how quickly he works things out and how clever he is, and could easily eat a grown man under the table. He’s my baby and I love him!

So that’s about it for today. Tomorrow I shall finally commit to my New Years resolutions and put them on here so I can’t hide from them in 2012.

Over and out!



So here we are…


And so to my very first blog post! I have decided that 2012 will be the year that I write a blog about my adventures and hopefully I can keep it up throughout the year. I’ve tried keeping diaries before but never really got anywhere so this time I have decided to make it one of my new years resolutions (of which I am making five but more about that later), in the hope that that will spur me on. I intend to document my dabblings, travels and family goings on, they are a crazy bunch so it should make for some hopefully interesting reading.

I’ve decided to start my blog a few days before the new year as so to give myself time to introduce us as a family and get into the swing of this blogging malarky, I read quite a few blogs regularly including a particularly wonderful one by a lovely lady called Kylie who is a fellow premmie parent and genuinely lovely lady, and they have inspired me to write my own. I’m hoping at least one person may find it interesting, if not maybe it will be catartic for me.

I’m off now to try and find you something interesting to write about. 🙂
