It occurs to me that since I migrated from my old blog to this one that I haven't really been around much. That is to say, whilst still posting semi-regularly, I haven't actually shown my face or shared very much of myself or my life at all. I thought it was about time I came out of hiding.
So where have I been? Well, it's been a long, cold winter. Full of snuffles and chest infections, teething troubles and sleepless nights... and I have a baby to look after too! The days have been short and dark and my energy and motivation have been at an all time low. If I make it out of the house on any given day I'm doing well. The time of year and the trying nature of parenthood have combined to make the black dog of depression rear it's ugly head once again. Also various medication changes means I have been either climbing the walls or zonked out drooling. It's safe to say my mind has been elsewhere and there have been far fewer postworthy outfits and definitely more pyjamas.
I don't like to get too personal on this blog but I think it's important to be genuine. I don't have a picture perfect life and I don't want to pretend that I do. So long story short, if I have been and continue to be a little sporadic, that's the reason. I really enjoy blogging. I want to be here. I intend to carry on blogging. I'm just a little pressed for time and energy at the moment.
Anyway, enough of all that. I am so glad to see the back of January at last. I am eagerly awaiting longer days and sunnier weather and all the adventures they will bring. Who's with me?
