Anyone who says motherhood is a full time job is either playing it down or has an army of staff. It is FIVE jobs at least – a housekeeper, a cleaner, a cook, a nanny and baby’s personal entertainer.
Nicholas is STRONG-willed, curious, sweet, cuddly and SO MUCH FUN. Such a little lion cub. (There is a danger of lion-themed toys and prints taking over my house, help!)
I am LOVING being a mummy to the most incredible boy on the planet (I am genetically programmed to think this way, so just roll with it, k?). I can’t quite work out whether the last 6 months have flown by (he seems to be growing up SO FAST) or feel like forever (I can barely remember life before him). His smiles make me melt into a puddle and his laughs make my heart soar. I am virtually exploding with love and joy and pride every day.
Amidst the melting, exploding and soaring, my days are swallowed up in house tasks, taking him out and preparing to move house, so I have sort of lost touch with a lot of other things, like the rest of the world, particularly online. I hope you’ll forgive my lack of presence in blogland. I rarely spend any time on my Macbook these days. In fact I snapped these photos over a month ago and have only just uploaded them. I do expect to get back to blogging regularly and interacting with my favourite blogs… I just don’t know when yet.
Anyway, how do you keep up with your favourite blogs? Do you use an RSS reader? The blogs I usually follow are organised by category in Google Reader but that is getting the axe (silly decision, Google) so I need to switch to an equally useful alternative. Sarah of Modern Country Style wrote a great informative post about Google Reader alternatives and favours Feedly. Do YOU use Feedly? Do you like using it? Any users of any other readers? I should check out all the options myself but my spare time is non-existent right now and you’re all super-helpful, so do let me know your recommendations please. Ta very much!
