Blogging for a year, have I learnt anything??

This little blog is just over a year old now (cue belated Happy Birthday singing and trumpet sounds) although it seems like I’ve been writing (in my head) for a lot longer.

I’ve noticed over the past few weeks that I have been spending long hours in front of my laptop, something I haven’t done since my work days, now that I have opted to become a stay at home mum. I’ve been enjoying blogging but I started to feel like something wasn’t quite right. Something didn’t fit and felt amiss. Continue reading
