Where to begin? At the beginning, I guess!
So new year, New Year’s resolution. I started a blog back in 2014 and although I enjoyed writing it, I wasn’t happy with the name (Purple Sparkly Mummy – not really me) and after I had completed the #100happydays challenge didn’t know what else to write about. But I wanted to write. I don’t have an area of speciality. Fashion? Travel? Interiors? Yes, I love all of the above but so does everyone else and so many others do it bettter. Photography? Yes, I am an aspiring photographer and get a lot of pleasure from it but who wants to see my family album? So kids? Check, I have three and being a mum is my main job (along with wife, chef, chauffeur, PA, you know the rest) but they’re past the age of being sweet little darlings and with all those brilliant blogs about toddler tantrums and first days at school, I feel like I’ve missed the boat. I have … a teenager! There’s not much sweet about the lippy age (and you can take that in whichever way you fancy) but it does have its moments.
So dear reader (although in truth I know there’s nobody out there. Yet.) I am a frustrated writer, struggling to find my angle but wanting to put pen to paper, so we’ll see where this ends up.
2017: be brave and put your positive pants on!
