Its been a while, probably about 3 years in fact. But with recent events and changes in my life, I’ve decided to return to the occasional blogging.
As a teenager I used to keep a journal, a daily record of all I did, thought, woeful teenage angst etc etc – I kept them for around 7 years – and wow, to read back on them now is totally cringe worthy for the most, but a good reminder of how I felt and the events that helped shaped the person I am today.
This was what I had in mind when I started a blog some 3 years ago, it was to just be a personal account of our daily (Daly lol) lives. Just a way of keeping for posterity stories about our lives together, and sharing our experiences with anyone that cared to have a read. But suddenly (or rather over a few months), I found I became more concerned with what I thought people might want to read, how I would be perceived and were the photo’s good enough! Everything we did, everywhere we went became a photo and story opportunity for the blog.
So I stopped.. I was doing things to blog about, rather than just because it was part of what we were doing for a family. This was not what I wanted my blog to be, so I stepped away from it.
Life over the past 2 1/2 years has changed so much. We moved from the big smoke, a large Yorkshire City, to a small Lancashire town.
Ron and I are still adjusting to sharing a life together
My girls are growing up quickly.. too quickly
My mum recently passed away .. she had moved and was living with us, so currently, adjusting and accepting life without her here is the biggest, hardest life changing event I’ve ever had to deal with. It is all consuming, and I’m not really sure if I am dealing with it yet.
So.. here I am, back to the blog, but with a fresh approach, to keep a record of my family as we move through time. Something for me, for us as a family, and a read for anyone else that might want a little peak in to our lives from time to time.
