Time to reassess

It's my birthday tomorrow - I'll be 36. I've lost touch with my blog this year and I want to rectify that. When I started this little blog it was for family and friends to keep track of our journey through IVF to parenthood. I was already pregnant at the time and really thought it would focus on 'the baby'. I never intended to be a blogger and at the moment I'm not - but I want to be.

In the beginning it was merely a broad information tool for far flung family and friends - I didn't even really know of blogging in a broader sense so I didn't aim for a public market. I always kept it more informative with some hints into more personal issues when we lost our son Banjo but didn't always talk openly about myself the way I would if my writing was more anonymous. Naturally there are things people don't always want to share and I am well known amongst my family to keep things pretty close to my chest. Let's face it there are things parents, in-laws, grandparents don't want or like to know about their kids.

I am now a big follower of lots of 'mummy' blogs and it is so refreshing to read about these women around Australia and the world and share their daily journey through motherhood with them. They all have different niches but what they nearly all have in common is a love of photography and a passion for pictures of their gorgeous kids.

I didn't really make any NY resolutions as such but I did know that my life needed an overhaul. I've really lost touch with myself and let things in my life that used to be a source of pride slip. So I'm trying to not only revamp my blog but my life along with it. So I invite you to join me on this journey.

I'm already so lucky to have my wonderful husband and my beautiful son. Noah is just so much fun now and he brings me so much happiness every day. I don't know what lies ahead but I am going to try and grab the bull by the horns and make my 37th year one of the best. I might borrow a few ideas from other blogs and get some regular features happening. I'm organising my mind, my home and my soul - should be fun. At first I might do some backtracking to record the year so far - after all this is the best record I'll have for the future when my mind is completely gone!!!

If you are reading this I have a job for you too -please pass my blog onto your friends and family or anyone who might be interested. I'm going to need all the help I can get.

Happy Birthday to me.


  1. I'm not sure you realise the positivity your honest and frank words bring to the lives of others Kirsty. I've been a slightly shamed follower of your blog since it's a voyeuristic way seeing as I don't have contact with you both - but believe me, I take such delight in reading of your happy escapades and family moments, and take such strength from your words in those harder moments.

    I truly wish 2010 brings everything you want it to - and know you have the chuzpah to go our and grab it.

    I selfishly also wish 2010 brings more blogging, you've left me hanging these past few months!

    Much love always Renae (ENVIRON)

  2. Kirsty, I've put a link to you at In-laws. Hope that counts! :-) Colin
