12.02.2014 – So, here’s a quick update:
I’ve just had my 42nd birthday (yesterday) so I guess I really can be classed as in my midlife and I’m okay with that.
I’ve been blogging more over the past few months and I’m really enjoying it. I’m finding that blogging is pushing me to do more and all that photo taking is really making me look at the world and see the things around me.
I’m enjoying going through all my photos and making sense of them, what I did previously was take loads of photos and then forget about them. But, I’m still very self-conscious about taking photos in certain circumstances and I’m also pretty rubbish at it too.
I’ve had a couple of pretty shitty years and this year I hope to be more relaxed about things, to do more of the things that I love doing and that interest me and to focus on what is good in my life rather than stress about what isn’t. Oh yes, and I plan for this year to be the year that I really do give up dieting.
Blogging has made me read more blogs and I LOVE that the blogging community is so wonderfully vibrant and genuinely inspiring and friendly and helpful.
Thanks to those of you that pass by and like a post or leave a comment and, well, just thanks to those of you that pass by.
Firstly, just to be clear, I am not a teenager. I did have a child whilst in my teens and that of course had a huge impact on me.
I think I’m a bit on the young side to be classed as at midlife but it’s a running joke with my daughter that I’m middle aged. If I die in my mid seventies, which isn’t unrealistic considering my misspent years working in the music industry, she will have been correct.
I really love talking and thought that writing a blog would be a good way to develop a skill, aka writing, whilst doing what I like doing most.
I’ll probably mostly write about food, fashion and making things – lifestyle sort of subjects. I’ll certainly ramble.
I’m not writing this for an audience but I suppose it would be great to have one. If I do get a big readership I’ll try to be true to myself but I’ll probably show off ridiculously and tell tall tales.
I write as I speak and I love exclamation marks. In other words….I write as I speak and I LOVE exclamation marks!!!!!
I suppose this is a bit long for an about me. Ah well.
