After an absence of several weeks, er make that months, I'm returning to the blogosphere and gradually plugging back into Twitter.
When I started this blog I had high hopes that it would start with me announcing my pregnancy with our second child. It was going to be a happy start to the blog followed by a journey through pregnancy, toddlerhood, parenthood, travel and all the ups, downs, laughter and cake that would involve.
Unfortunately you know how that ended and that's where my blog has sat for weeks and weeks. Neglected and sad.
I struggled with finding motivation to sit and write anything. My notebook full of ideas teased me from my bedside table but I couldn't be bothered to write. Then the longer I left it the harder it became to restart.
In the meantime I have been enjoying life, loving watching Leelah grow up into a walking, talking toddler . I've been building up my massage business, getting regular clients and loving it. I am learning and developing all the time.
Life has been good.
And it just got better.
It's just six weeks in, so it's early, early days and we are happy and just a bit scared.
I know there's a long way to go but after all the support we had from family, friends and Twitter it feels right to start blogging again and to have this as the first post back.
Here's hoping that this time we'll be saying hello to a new Baby Bousa next January.
