Hello – and a little about how I arrived here!

For months I have been ruminating over whether or not to write a blog.  What would I say?  What could I possibly impart to others that is of any significance, that is anything ‘readworthy’? I’m a stay-at-home mum, and have been for 19 years, and for those 19 years life has pretty much revolved around caring for a husband and two children, kinder and school, ferrying them to and from activities, ensuring homework is completed, attending school meetings and concerts, and being a contributor to school committees.  I have endeavoured to create interests for myself – I have practised yoga for 15 years, attended French classes and drawing classes and undertaken volunteer work. Last year I enrolled in the Inspiration Information class created by Pip Lincolne of  Meet Me at Mikes fame. What a wonderful bunch of supportive ladies!  They keep me inspired with their words and images and keep me encouraged in my aim to incorporate creative activities into my daily life. They have given me a push to refine and transform my routines! And that is what started my ruminating!  Would a blog be another way to nourish creativity? But what to say? And so, the template sat there. Getting my fingers to the keyboard was the thought that if I didn’t start writing where would there be a record of how I filled my days? How I thought?  What do people know about us?  Even our nearest and dearest?  Sometimes we don’t want to share every aspect of our lives, but if we don’t share a little of ourselves then others will never understand who we are, where we came from.  And when they come to explain our lives, what can they share? With that at the forefront of my mind, I thought I should just start writing. Record what is my life.  I don’t have to be extraordinary.  I can just be me. And so this is what I will write. I will simply share my life and my experiences.  Maybe one day, it might be of interest to others.  And if you happen to have fluked by this page, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read it.
