A new beginning

Hi, here I am!

Twelve months ago I had no idea what a "blog" even was, but happened across one during a search for some kids party food ideas and thus by journey as a reader of blogs began.
Having pondered the thought of writing a blog for some months I have decided to give it a go. After all what is the worst case scenario; other than I am the only who might read it!

I have asked myself why I would like to write a blog and thought that would make a good first post and perhaps a point to check back on in the future to see if the reasoning proved to be correct.

So here is what I came up with:

1. I once wanted to be a journalist or work in PR but gave up on that idea long ago, so maybe this is my only chance to publish a piece of writing (albeit I am not sure you would really call a blog "publishing")

2. With the intention of primarily looking after my children for the next few years I feel a desperate need to keep my skills relevant, keep up with technology, interact with other adults and have someone to listen to what I have to say other than my two kids.

3. I feel the need to keep a personal record of this time of my life and the lives of my children. Looking back at on my childhood I have many memories but most are vague so I feel writing a blog will serve as a memory jogger in the future and might make some good fodder for the 21st, wedding speeches etc

4. The online world is truly amazing, there is a so many inspiring people out there and this is one way to perhaps connect with some of them.

So let's go and see what happens
