Sometimes in life things get so busy and hectic that something has got to give. Something has to be abandoned by the wayside while you try to get everything back in order, and all your plates spinning again.
In the past 10 months for me, that abandoned thing has been this space. My record of life online, for my children to look back on. I’ve done terrible job this year and not kept a single note of anything we’ve done. The boys will think that Elliot’s first year of school has passed in a blur with no evidence to show that it ever happened. And so much HAS happened.
I’m almost ashamed to start again. Or more rightly, I’m ashamed that I’ll end up stopping again.
But it I guess that’s the point. I want my boys to look at this record of their lives and see reality. And the reality is that we’ve had a super busy few months. I’ll have to summarise it all somehow but for now it feels good to just write.
The hardest step is the first. And now that’s done.
