I’m back and will be back blogging everyday, except Sundays.
Lots have been going on since I last posted.

Planning shopping trips
Joined a ladies beginners running club
And read about 30 books
Phew that was a lot. I’ve been busier than I thought!
Things are just calming down and it’s half term next week. The new school year started 7 weeks ago and I’m still not in a routine. I think I’ve finally nailed it and something crops up. The housework, cooking etc all go to pot! Then I’m fighting to catch back up.
In 1 of my previous posts I mentioned my Summer 2014 bucket list. Not only did I not manage to get it up on here for you all to see but I barely did anything on the list either!
Which I will say left me feeling like a rubbish mummy.
But I’m focusing on what I did get right and just going to keep trying to improve myself and the life of my family.
By showing up, doing the work, being present and being grateful for the miracle that is my child. The joy he brings even on our bad days. And my partner who I don’t give enough credit to and doesn’t get the best of me.
And all you of you, my lovely readers will be my accountability crew.
I plan to post what I want to achieve and how I want to behave on here every day/week. Haven’t decided yet on best timetable so I’ll try both and see which works best. Then I’ll update on how I’m doing.
I’ve now spent a further 2 days trying to get to grips with the blog and its formats. And I don’t mind admitting this blog has seriously shown me how lacking in knowledge I am with todays computing. 4 years out of the work place and I’m struggling with the new technology.
But I’m trying and I’m trying to find the right people to ask for advice. I’ll be reaching out to bloggers who use wordpress in my area for advice and help.
A few quotes I’m finding appropriate at this moment.
“Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good” Gretchin Ruben
“Every man makes his own summer. The season has no character of its own. Adventures are what make a summer. Have an adventure” Robertson Davis
“If I want my home to be a serene, loving & welcoming place, I’m the one who has to be serene, loving & welcoming”
Thanks for reading.
See you tomorrow
