I’ve been a bit quiet on here of late eh? After being inundated* with concerned messages as to where I was I thought I’d better set the record straight, I can’t bear to think of people lying awake at night fretting about me.
(* I had about 3 messages you heartless bitches! )
Anyway the news is that I have been doing this…
Only my dream!
But as you can imagine writing a book with small children kicking about is pretty difficult. Not least because they don’t give a frick! This was the exact reaction I had from my boys when I told them…
One of my very favourite things about kids is their ability to keep you grounded. The next thing my eldest said was ‘Well I hope you are going to make it funny Mummy!’
No pressure or anything.
So anyway I’ve not had much time for blogging. All of my hours are going towards making this book as good as I possibly can, so I hope you understand. However I’m about 75% done now so I should be back very soon!
The book will have about 30 chapters going from pregnancy to starting school, It will feature some of my favourite posts but the majority will be completely new material. It has been a lot of fun to write because I’ve never talked about pregnancy, birth or the early days before as I was beyond those stages when I started blogging 2.5 years ago.
Most importantly there will of course be plenty of stick people illustrations to accompany the writing! Here are a couple to wet your whistle…
Chapter 1. Growing a human
Chapter 6. How to get your baby to sleep through the night
Finally can I take the opportunity to say THANK-YOU so, so much to you all for reading, liking and sharing my blog. Without you lovely people this would have never happened so you have made one lady very happy :)
I really hope that you will enjoy it.
