Ride The Pony

Today I've decided is the day I jump back on the metaphorical saddle and ride the writing pony. 

Since my mum has been in the country I've been let out of the house a few times without my little handbag (also known as Daniel) and as nice as it's been to have nights out with the girls and a bit of me time, I have to admit that I'm happiest when I'm home with my children.  I do however have a day date booked with my two best friends for my birthday (October 12th) which will not involve the children and will hopefully involve lots of relaxation and lots of non-alcohol induced crazy fun.

I'm still not getting much sleep and I can't even blame Daniel because even when my mum takes him downstairs so that I can sleep all I can manage is to lay with my eyes closed for a few minutes and over think my whole life!  It turns out that when you have unresolved problems your brain doesn't allow you to sleep.  If anyone has any tips on how to switch off I'd be happy to hear them.

Anyway as this is my first post back after my break I'm going to keep it short and sweet until I get back into the swing of things.

I've started to write at least four different posts on different topics but every time I've deleted them.  They have either been too personal (even a blogger doesn't share everything,) or they have been too mundane.  Unless I have a review that's too good to refuse or something amazing happens I'm going to give myself a blog break.

Bye for now x

Dirty Dancing and Stuff

It has been a while since I've written anything and not due to lack of motivation but lack of time.  After having a few days rest from my holiday I've made it a point to get out of the house as much as possible and if I couldn't get out I've had friends here to keep me busy.

I went to carnival this year and am slightly ashamed to say that the type of dancing I was doing was the stuff I frown at in music videos.  Hopefully I wasn't caught on camera!  I went expecting it to be packed and boring but truth be told, although it was packed, I had a really good time.  We managed to find somewhere with just enough people to dance and have enjoy without feeling like tinned sardines and saw a couple of faces that I haven't seen in a long time.  The only down side was how long it took to get on a train home.

On another note I've been celibate for 21 months now, go me!  I've been on a couple of dates and made a lovely new friend but I'm not ready to commit to anyone which means no nookie for me.  I'm actually starting to rethink the celibacy thing... to jump or not to jump!
