Fun From Now On

I’ve been thinking, lots and lots and lots. Thank you all for your really helpful, thoughtful and down right lovely comments. I’m really touched that you actually spent the time to respond to me and my silliness. It’s funny how something like an operation brings life into sharp clarity and gets you thinking and questioning about stuff. I have to admit that I am suffering from terrible anxiety at the moment as I do have a real genuine fear of hospitals and needles, which has been helped by CBT, but I think may need to be dealt with by tranquilisers later on this week.

I have decided upon a course of action, helped by the suggestions. I am going to continue, partly due to the begging of hubby and a couple of mates including someone who I like to think of as one my best -est friends as she stoically puts up with all my moaning, Garden Mum. I think I would also be giving up on what is essentially a record of my life and times. Like the Mummy Whisperer (who also has some fab advice on her blog) and miss leslieanne, Tasha, and Muddling Along Mummy suggested, I think I will have specific no blogging days when I focus on domestic family things. The computer will not even be turned on and I am in discussions about moving it upstairs like Laura and Fraught Mummy suggest.

I am really enjoying doing my sewing at the moment, so as Kathyrn suggests (I’m not going to call her Mrs Slug!) I will post about some of my creative achievements and disasters. I hope you all find this enjoyable, funny and perhaps even a little but inspirational. I also think I will go back to the early days a bit, when I wrote about some stuff other than kids, like Mary does so well.

I feel the need to concentrate on my family life and the kids, but that doesn’t need to be at the expense of me time and blogging is a bit of me time. I need to get more organised. So apologies, if this little part of the web becomes a bit erratic. Stick with me there will be good times ahead!

I would also like to thank Cartside (who I feel I know, as we have been reading each others blogs for such a long time now!), Vic, Metropolitan Mum, the Dotterel, Karin and Clarey for stroking my ego and making me feel a bit better. Its nice to know that people enjoy what you are doing and ultimately they made me remember why I started doing this, for fun, and for myself.

    Glad you have decided to continue blogging and use it as &quot;me time&quot;. I love reading your posts and it feels like we still &quot;keep in touch&quot; when I read what you are up to. <br><br>I find I need to keep my computer time separate from my family time or I get dragged into reading about everyone elses life when I should be concentrating on my own so I can understand your concerns.

    really glad you&#39;ll keep blogging!<br>Hope that you&#39;ll be able to keep your nerves at bay. I know it&#39;s not easy… Above all, hope the operation will be a piece of cake and you&#39;ll look back soon thinking why you worried so much about it.

    Yay :)<br>I&#39;m glad I&#39;ll still see you popping up on Google Reader :D<br><br>I hope all goes well with your operation too – I&#39;m sure you&#39;ll be absolutely fine, but totally understand the anxiety.<br>(from the girl who was baling like a baby as she was wheeled off for her emergency c-section!)<br><br>xx

    Oh good luck later this week, I do hope everything goes well and you don&#39;t get too anxious.<br><br>So glad you are going to carry on blogging. I know what you mean by trying to find time to seperate it from your family life though. It is difficult. I&#39;m contemplating a computer move upstairs myself, if only so it stops winking at me when I should be winking at the kids. I&#39;m going to
