It's my Blogging Birthday!!!

My blog is having its birthday! I can’t believe it’s a year since I posted my first, rather inauspicious, post.

What a fun journey it has been! I’ve “met” some incredible people through my blog and I’ve become a regular visitor to numerous other amazing blogs. Blogging has become such a meaningful and enjoyable part of my daily life.

I think what I like most about blogging is that it’s something I do entirely for myself. As a mom, I find that I often become swamped by family issues, it sometimes feels as though everything I do is about, one or other family member, never about me. My blog is something that helps me find myself again, it’s a little oasis of peace for me, in amongst the washing, meals, work and shopping that make up my day.

In honour of my blogging birthday I browsed through my blog to see what I have posted about over the last 12 months and a couple of posts jumped out at me:

My very favourite post - My Bundu Bashers

Probably the most surprising post of the year - One Cute Stationary Bike

The post that every woman should read - Inflammatory breast cancer

I then tried to pick my top ten favourite blogs, but failed miserably – there are just so many good blogs out there, so please have a look at my blog roll (a little further down on the left) to see ALL of my favourites and then hop on over to visit those sites!

2017 in review

2017 has been a strange year.  I started the year with great intentions and some firm goals in mind, but somehow I stalled quite early on in...
