Nearly a whole year passed & my life has changed beyond recognition!

I can only apologise for not writing sooner, I clicked on here to discover that my last post was Feb 5th, a signifiacant day to me as it was the last day I was a selfish individual person who did what she wanted when she wanted & normally at the drop of a hat! I didn't know it at the time though that Feb 5th was the last day of being just me!! You see I happen to know my son was conceived on Feb 6th, now I know that a conception date isn't generally talked about, a bit too much detail maybe ... but for us it was a day that we had been praying for for a few years! The other wonderful thing about Feb 6th was it was a special date to my husband maybe not for all the right reasons but his Mum passed away on that day in 1996 & it had been a day we make sure we remembered with fondness, love & sharing of his memories (I unfortunately never met her) To us our son was a very special gift from his Mum who we feel watched over us!

So thats my excuse for not blogging I fell pregnant & had a baby boy on October 20th - Oliver Mark ...another special date 20/10/2010

Oliver is now 15 weeks old & a beautiful bouncing baby, I never imagined I could feel this much love for him it really is the most amazing feeling.

Where has the selfish young woman gone that thought nothing of eating out all weekend, buying whatever she pleased, endless foreign holidays to exotic places ... it sounds great doesn't it but I would never want to go back because what I have gained in a small helpless bundle of joy is beyond all those things! Although we do still have a meal out at the weekend, Oliver seems to enjoy the hustle & bustle & soon he will be able to join us eating (or rather throwing food around!)

Now I am aware I have turned into one of those people who gush on about their child, so I will try to limit the ravings of a lovestruck Mummy!

I can't promise my blog will be updated regularly but I will try my best!

  1. Dear Snapdragons'g'd'n I have been very pleasantly surprised by your forthright honesty :)

    Lovely pics of Oliver and am sure the little lad will keep you amused for a long time, perhaps even adding a few grey hairs as time flows by... For he looks to be a robust character with a keen sense of humour.

    Great blog and Please don't leave off writing on any account.

    A faithful follower.
