Umm...hello??...is there anyone still out there?
I guess first off I should say sorry for not blogging recently. We've done some pretty lovely things these last few weeks and not one of them made it onto my blog...but you know what? I don't think I am sorry.
I don't think I can be the only person who loses their blogging funk for a little while. Slowly life got busy, mostly work wise, and taking an hour to blog about a meal or a trip out seemed to slip lower and lower down my priorities.
January was definitely the month to focus on ME. I lost over a stone in weight, drank very little alcohol and did plenty of exercise and I felt different. I feel like I can stop the depressingly fast rate that I seemed to put on weight. I can stop my knees creaking as I walk up stairs. I can break the frankly worrying trend of drinking because it's the weekend, because it's almost the weekend, because it's NOT the weekend.
My motivation in all of this as you know, is to do as much as I can to get my body in as good a shape I can to get pregnant and have a successful pregnancy. Sion, as always, has been brilliant. He's also slashed his drinking levels (not that either of us were heavy drinkers to start with) and amazingly has also gone cold turkey and given up smoking.
We really thought we had it licked. We both allowed ourselves to think that last month was our month, that that blue line would appear, but it didn't. Of course we were disappointed but I know we WILL get there.
I will continue to eat the right food, take the right vitamins, make time to exercise, listen to my body but above all love this man of mine and enjoy every moment of our time together. I will not let this become an all consuming, clinical obsession. Having a baby is always a miracle and it will happen in it's own time, that I'm sure of.
So what happens in the meantime? Well on Saturday we are off to Snowdon for a whole week of relaxing, walking, eating and more relaxing - I can't wait. I have no schedule for blogging, my priority is to live in the moment through my eyes, rather than the lens of a camera. I have got tickets to a number of blogging conferences and events though that I'm really excited to be attending. I know this will give me inspiration and the confidence that this blog of ramblings is valid and interesting to at least a few!
So this isn't a goodbye, or even a see you later, but maybe just a see you when I see you!
