Once again here I am blogging after such a long time away. You see I think about my blog all the time, I am always thinking that I should share this and that and then I tend to think to myself...why bother? Does anyone read it anyway? Is anyone interested? And then I feel like it is just a bit of a waste of time.
I've thought a lot about what my blog should focus on and what I want it to be like. I look at all the other blogs I read and think about their purpose and I feel like this blog has lost its purpose over the last year or so. I used to be heavily into my sewing and creating but I rarely get time to do much of that these days and life has changed a lot so I decided to start blogging again but with a new focus for me. I was actually very inspired by Kelly of Sewing in No Man's Land who seemed to have the same issue and has just created a brand new blog to suit her new situation.
At the moment I live in a house where I am the only parent most of the time. I have a wonderful husband who works away from home and who I miss terribly when he is gone. I have my two amazing children who are growing so fast and who take up most of my time with their extra curricular activities and interests. I have work to go to and a house to keep up with as well as my exercise and my focus on eating well. I do still love to create and I sew and crochet and knit whenever I can (I tend to do things that I can take with me to dancing and soccer etc).
In reflection, this blog has always been a way for me to record life, if others want to share the journey with me then that is great and I would love to share. So my blog will be updated much more often from now on sharing and recording the things that happen around here, even if they seem small and not important to some. I'll share my creations as they happen but I cannot guarantee that it will be often.
I am really hoping that this shift in focus helps me to blog more often and share more of the great life we live in our house and I really hope that you choose to read along and share the experience with me.
I'll be back soon...with some of what's been going on and a look to see how my things to do in 2013 is coming along - hope to see you then!
