On the 5th January 2015, looking for something to do, I started writing a little blog. I’m still slightly surprised that I’ve managed to continue writing during the chaos (I think that’s the right word) of the last year, although I write far less frequently now. I write largely for myself, but it’s always lovely to hear comments from readers.
It’s funny looking back to my very first post, so uncertain of what’s to come. I realise I never answered the questions I initially posed:
When will Bud make an appearance? 6 days late, on Friday 20th February at exactly 20:00.
Will we have a boy or girl? A very energetic boy.
How will we adjust to parenthood? We found our way, as all new parents do, by learning each and every day (we still are). It’s a huge change, but we adjust because we have no choice!
Will we ever sleep again? Yes. Although it took far longer than we hoped!
Am I enjoying my final hot cups of tea…? (Should I start drinking them cold, so it isn’t a shock!?) No. I employed my friend Charlotte’s rule and always enjoy a hot cuppa. If I might run out of time, I don’t make one. No cold tea for Kirsty!
What a year it has been. There have been highs and lows, but ultimately the best year ever.
