The Liebster Award

Being a housewife and mother I find it hard to find the time to write. Sometimes I go more than a week without writing a word and that means I get irritable. Writing has become my stress relief and it really works. When I’m writing I can feel the stress melting away and I feel like me again. Unfortunately this doesn’t happen often enough, with cleaning the house, potty training a 2 year old and feeding the hubby time seems to slip away and I find that there’s no time left for writing. As a consequence I’ve had to give myself a routine for blog posts, this way I can have time to think about what to write and I (hopefully) don’t run out of things to write about. 

Well this week I have been given something to write about by Jack Flacco. It’s called the Liebster Award and is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers. Hopefully this gives those bloggers more attention. I’d like to thank Jack for giving me this award, he made me a very happy lady! Writer of The Necklace and a supporter of all writers, Jack Flacco is currently writing his second book. Check out his blog, I promise you will be entertained.

An Exciting Journey

This time last year I was scared, I'd started to think about my future. My youngest son is almost 3 and starting nursery in September. I realised this is the first time since having my eldest, who is seven, that I've been able to think about myself. I began to wonder what I would do. The last time I had any time to myself I was pregnant so it seemed pointless starting anything. I have no plans for any more children (two is enough) so the time will be mine.

After spending all of my time for the last eight years looking after children I was pleased I would have some time for me but there was a terrible dread. Would I turn into a neat freak, spending all my free time cleaning the house?

At the time I was reading a book called The Heat, the first book in a series of four called The Big Bad Wolf Series by Heather Killough-Walden. She is a very talented writer who I admire a lot. She is also a mother.
