Hello strangers…

I haven’t posted anything for quite some time and I wouldn’t surprised if all my readers have abandoned the silent ship. You see, quite a lot has happened in the last few months and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t feeling a little bit nervous about returning to the blogosphere.  First up we bought our first house and decided rather than just move in and live a peaceful carefree existence we would completely rip it to pieces and pretty much start again (I’m talking new floors, walls, windows, ceilings, the works) and manage the whole project ourselves whilst also obviously not giving up the – crikey there’s a lot going on right now – day job. Then about a few weeks after moving in we got a dog, the lovely scruffy Margot the miniature dachshund and then about two weeks after that I realised we were going to have a baby.  Yep, full on.  The pregnancy thankfully was pretty plain sailing (despite my continual terror that baby Tovell was going to arrive early and into a world of dust, plasterboard and windowless rooms). The building work finished in mid August and baby Florence arrived a week later. Impeccable timing. She’s continued to be very kind to us and now I’m thinking it might be time to stop neglecting my little blog.

Now I’m not sure what Florence thinks about this blogging malarky. Right now she’s half asleep in a sling on me, snuffling and occasionally grunting but not wailing and clawing at the computer so so far I think we can say she approves…
