So I’ve decided to start a blog, well more of an online journal really. I have always loved writing and kept a diary for many years, in fact I’m one of them people who carries one around with them, jotting, doodling and pressing flowers among the pages.
Not being so ‘tech savvy’ has put me off of starting a blog for quite sometime, but I have finally bit the bullet and begged my sister (she’s the computer whizz of the family) to help me create a space online where I can share my thoughts, experiences and ideas with people while I start an exciting new adventure in my life.
Right now I am going through one of the most life changing things that a woman can go through. I am having a baby. I know right…madness! I still don’t fully believe it myself, as times gone on I was expecting it to just hit me like a speeding train, but so far it hasn’t. I know it’s happening, I can feel her kicking and wriggling away, I can see and feel my swelling stomach yet still it has just not really sunk in, it feels like I’m in a dream. What I do know though is that I can not wait for her to be here!
I currently live in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. It is truly an amazing place and since moving here in 2014 from my home town in England, I have not wanted to live anywhere else. It is simply a magical place. So living in a city, about to have a baby and becoming a single mother I thought I could keep a record of this new chapter, while also sharing my experiences with anyone that would like to read them.
So here I am, writing a blog. I can only hope that it is helpful and enjoyable because I aim to write here as often as I can.
