I noticed now that the last time I wrote anything was to give a heads up on our way forward. That was end of January, almost 4 months ago. I only now got around to installing the WP app on the iPod. I’ve been using this as my main social device since my Blackberry bombed out completely a few months ago. I have this dinky toy phone to make calls with, but that’s all it’s really useful for.
These last few months have been amazing. I am loving all the time I get to spend with the boys. A1 is successfully only going to school half day and A2 and I spend almost the entire day together. Very rarely do I have to make arrangements for him -he just goes where I go or we don’t go.
I am experiencing A2 in a way I never could with A1. In a way this makes me sad because I now realise how much I missed out on with him. But it also makes me more grateful to be able to have this with one of my children at least.
As discussed, I’m still consulting for the company I worked at, although secretly I wish I could give that up too. It’s not that I want to do absolutely nothing at home. In fact, life turned out quite the opposite as to how I imagined it would be I had this picture of all this free time on my hands and feared that eventually I might get bored at home. In reality, I have less free time now than when I worked a nine-to-five. There is *always* something happening or needing to be done or place to be.
The computer rarely gets switched on these days and when it does, I do what needs to be done and switch it off. I guess I’m not blogging because I’m living the moments instead. I regularly think though that ooh, maybe I should blog this or that, but then the next thing happens… I have been tweeting the moments and I do have SocialSafe to archive them for me, so all is not lost. I will one day be able to show the boys snippets, if not complete details, of their younger years. And that was the whole entire point of starting this blog.
I write for my boys. For one day. I am thankful there are a few readers, because you have been there for me through everything – ups, downs, dishing advice, praising, encouraging and generally helping to validate me on this journey as a Mother. But ultimately, I don’t really want to write *for you*. I know you’ll understand this.
Anyhoodle, I have a few more posts needing writing. This iPod-blogging might work out after all.
