Well hello there .. it has been a long time since I last put finger to keyboard for this blog at least .. Im not sure why its been so long .. I still love this space .. and often visit it .. but perhaps because this past year or so has been so strange & other than really work, mum and wife (if you get my drift) I’ve not done .. like all of us .. a huge amount … so felt I had nothing in particular to offer .. and so the longer its gone on that I’ve not written the more nervous I have felt .. and so the more pressure I’ve created in my head about writing something interesting .. some form of showstopper .. something so WOWsey it makes you say WOW! .. believe me there will be no WOWing at the end of this .. but I think I just needed to start somewhere … and to be honest .. it does feel good just typing away.
Home has been a big part of this past year .. and I really don’t think I’ve loved it so much until now .. of course I love my home .. … but certainly at the beginning of the pandemic it was like a sanctuary for me and my gang .. each weekend so precious. I think I learnt to be a little more creative .. and a whole lot more messy with my props (or as Mr W calls them “more clutter”) scattered around the home .. It was also great to spend time with the teens .. of course they couldn’t escape so they had to hang out with me …. but with them being at home all day the food bill went through the roof .. honestly they can eat and then eat some more!
Of course now things seem to be heading in the right direction .. we even went out for a meal over the weekend .. the first time in what seemed like forever…. & I got to have that wonderful experience of “getting ready” .. that time for baths .. a little bit of pampering in the late afternoon .. more time taken putting on your makeup & doing your hair .. a little bit more extra special .. and the fun of choosing your outfit all the while listening to your favourite music .. I’d forgot how much I enjoy that time .. of course the meal itself was wonderful … I mean not having to cook is always a win … and perhaps a few too many wines were had .. but we most definitely needed it … a the slow Sunday that followed was also pretty perfect too.
Like I said no WOWing after reading this .. I suppose I just wanted to start writing on here again … and the best way to start … is to start … you never know maybe the next instalment on here will be .. well maybe just a bit more interesting .. we can hope ..
If you have read this … thank you it really is appreciated
