28 has always been my ideal age. In my teens, I just couldn't wait to be 28. I never enjoyed being an adolescent. My parents were too strict and I was too shy, too hormonal and far too inhibited. My mum had me when she was 28 and I guess I always just thought that it sounded like the time when everything would just fall into place and now that I'm here, it kinda has. That's not to say that we don't have ups and downs but our kids are healthy, I'm doing my dream job- illustrating from home and our little family is embarking on an adventure, packing up and moving soon.
We are feeling positive about this year and are eager get on with it. However, with my demanding work and the big move coming up, I'm not sure how I'll fit blogging in. I don't want to put any more pressure on myself so I'm just going to have to see how it plays out.
One reason blogging has been a big part of my life is because I enjoy keeping a record of family life so I will try and keep it up.
Miss 3 learned to ride a bike over Christmas. With her little brother running around doing new and cute things hourly it's nice to remember that she still has plenty of firsts ahead of her. I'll miss the kids the way they are now.
There is one more thing I'll be missing this year and thats my beloved DSLR camera. I dropped her last week and it appears I've broken her. I accepted this misfortune surprisingly quickly. We're not sure of the damage yet but after I've exhausted the photos from my archive I may have to resort to camera shots for a while.
