This blog has made my life so much richer and happier over the past two years. I have been blogging a lot longer than that, but since becoming a mum it has become something special and important. A record of daily life for my family, of how I have gone from single to a married mum with (nearly) two children. I can be me here, I don’t lie, I don’t hide. It is no longer just about me and my thoughts. I wonder occasionally if the title still fits. I am no longer on my own.
But writing my blog is still that quiet solitude that I love so much and long for these days. Just me, in front of a keyboard, clearing my mind.
It is my modern day equivalent of a long walk along a sandy beach, alone with my thoughts, not another person in sight.
