I have been reading and drooling over other blogs for a long time and have always wanted to start one myself. I really don't know whether anyone will be bothered reading it, but I like the fact that I can have a visual diary of what my little family are up to - it doesn't matter if I'm the only one reading it! I've always loved reading and writing, it's in my blood. My mum reads constantly. At school, I was always good at English. I loved writing stories and essays - looking for hidden meanings behind everything. I'm hoping that this place will allow me to do some of that again. As a mum and business owner, I'm really only doing the things that surround family and work - not really letting my mind work on anything else. So, 2012 will be the start of something different for me. I can feel it's going to be a good year. I'm starting afresh, setting goals (which is an extremely difficult thing for me to do for some reason) & opening my mind for any new challenges that come.
