Mummy Ramblings

I think I’m back! I think…
I’ve been suffering from a weird case of writer’s block recently that hasn’t just affected my writing, it has also affected my photo editing. Bang on six months, I took Heath’s pictures for the usual updates and BOOM! that was it. Nothing! No editing, no writing, nada. I tried to edit the pics last week and did a half ar*$d job. Thinking that I’d rather wait until I was in a better blogging mood than put up a mediocre post up, it has just sat on my computer waiting for me to click ‘Publish’. All week and a month late (he’s seven months already!).
Now, at 23.41 on a Friday evening, after going to bed at 19.30 (I’m so rock and roll!), I think I’m back and ready to blog.
I think I’ve been feeling a bit strange recently as I feel in a bit of a limbo. I’ve been sad as Heath, on the one hand seems to be developing at a rapid rate. He’s just this week learned how to ‘crawl’ in a straight line. There’s no more rolling to a destination, oh no. If he wants to be somewhere, he’s straight there, there usually being somewhere he shouldn’t be e.g. raiding the DVDs, or with his head in the nappy box or trying to take the knob off the surround sound. And then, on the flip side, he’s regressed in a lot of ways. He’s waking frequently for night feeds and had bad nappies so he’s constantly on the changing mat (I think he’s teething). It’s a bit of an emotional roller coaster, especially with all the sleep deprivation.

Mummy Ramblings

Anyway, long story short, I feel like I’m back and hope to get back into my flow by doing a bit more blogging. I won’t promise to publish several posts this week but that is my intention.
Thanks for sticking with me. See you soon. Bx
