Hello world! This is my first blog post. I’ve been thinking for a while that I would like to share my thoughts on life and motherhood and – given the saviour that the internet has been to me over the past 6 months since Baby B was born – a blog seemed like the perfect outlet.
My aim is to show with honesty the raw side of motherhood and to share my experiences with others. Motherhood can be such an isolating experience and it has helped me so much to know through the world wide web that whatever I’m going through, no matter how awful or how wonderful, I’m not alone.
Now for a few numbers: Baby B is 6 months old. The Husband and I have been together almost 6 years and married for 1 1/2 years now. We are 6 months into this journey and about to embark on a 5 month journey that will see our little family take on Europe. The trip is both a life experience and also an opportunity for me to do some research for my study. Lucky for me that will involve visiting some very special world heritage sites.
Over the next few months I plan to use this blog to document a bit of both journeys. The short-term one with the planes and trains and the big-picture one with Husband, job, study, life and Baby B.
