I hate writing first posts on things like this…
Part of it is because I have no idea what I should write. Part of it is because it feels kind of false. Part of me wants to just jump in and do a “normal” post (what is a “normal” post anyway?).
Anyhow, I have no real idea what the focus of this blog is going to be – a mix of all my interests.
So what are they?
Well I am a Mom of 4 beautiful daughters (A, C, J and B), so parenting will no doubt feature to a certain extent, as will the escapades of the girls and celebrating their achievements (lets face it, what Mom can resist bragging about her children?). I am married to a wonderful man (we will call him I). I have 2 cats – Joey, a very skinny grey and white beastie with the most impressive whiskers and Prince Fluffybut – a white hairy monstrosity who is quite frankly the biggest cat I have ever seen.
I cook most of our food from scratch, love cooking with a passion and am interested in “clean” eating (ie eating food in as natural a state as possible). So no doubt recipes will feature.
Being the mom of 4 messy daughters and the wife of one messy husband, housework and cleaning will no doubt feature, especially if I have a good tip to pass on.
And in my spare time I knit, crochet and sew. And I love to read. I am also something of a gaming geek – having moved on from MMORPG’s (don’t really have the time any more!), my current obsession is Fallout New Vegas on the PS3.
As a family we love to hike – during the summer months we try to get out into the mountains every other weekend, so I don’t doubt that I will post photographs and details of our hikes. In July, we have planned a camping trip to Kananaskis so that we can do yet more hiking, planning on every day as long as the weather holds up.
Oh and I am studying to be a massage therapist on top of all that!
And because of a legal issue that we are having to go through (someone is suing I and me) there may be some posts that are not visible to the general public. I don’t want to cause any issues with the case. I hope that anyone who reads this will understand.
