Well today is the day. My blog’s birthday. four years old. Man, how it has flown.
I’ve never celebrated my blogs birthday before so I decided to do a whole big post with a nice little birthday image , maybe even a little present, (something I would love myself I think is in order because of course its as close as I will ever get to the real thing)
this year, for some reason, making a big deal out of it seems the most appropriate thing to do, It’s weird its one of the few things I started years ago that I still continue with.
Yes there are days, weeks where I don’t write but its mostly because life is getting in the way. Although I have to say I am enjoying browsing through some of the old posts to see what I’d like to post again. I haven’t done that before. There will be a couple more reposts over the next few days of posts I like and then it’s back to regular service. Hey, if there’s a post you remember that you like, let me know. But my repost for today is obviously going to be my first ever blog post
A lot has changed in the last 4 years and I think that’s what I tried to reflect in my blog over the years, my feelings, my sense of humour, My anger… Lets face it who else can I take it out on? and my life and soul.
The future is far less certain and recession is hitting pretty hard in some places. Like where I am. It’s funny that a huge amount of people are still in complete denial about that so I think that’s going to start to hit even harder in the near future. People are trying to keep going, trying not to admit that times are hard… Why keep up with the Jones? As long as we are happy, healthy and fed with a roof over our head that’s All I worry about in the end.
For me, I don’t know where I’ll be this time next year. Quite possibly, I’ll end up on the streets looking for work The boys are getting older and I’ve been lucky enough to be a stay at home mum since they were born. Forget what ever jobs I ever did in the past… All I have known for years is motherhood, I don’t know if it’s a skill that really translates to the streets but it’s worth a shot. “Banking, First Aid, Chef, Cleaner, Accountant, House keeper, Entertainments Manager? No? No? God bless you, sir,” and so on.
But it has actually been a really good 4 yrs since my Bloggibirthday I’ve been working hard on being a good mum and trying to do my best for the people I love and it’s something I think will contribute to possibly for the rest of my life. That’s a rare thing and I’m really thankful for it.
It has been a good 4 years. It has really!!
Well, here’s to another year. Thanks as always for dropping by my little blog. Who knew when I started writing about my life and other total rubbish years ago and ranting about almost anything that I’d find a little blog community of people I would call friends? If I’d known that, I probably would have tried to make those early postings a little better. Look back, they’re unbelievably crap. Well, not to worry, they served a purpose at the time. Helped me sort stuff out in my head.
If you’re reading this, I hope you’re doing well and thanks again.
