Back With A Bang!

The last few weeks, this here little blog has been on my mind.  I've missed having somewhere to write and interact with people.  I've missed reading other peoples blogs.  Maybe I'll be able to stick to it better this time, maybe I won't, but I've decided to give blogging another bash and see how it goes.  I've decided to start (almost) completely fresh and have gotten rid of all my old posts.  They may appear again, they may not.  I still don't know what direction I want to take this blog in, but until then, how's about a recap?

I'm now 26, a lot older but not a lot wiser, than when I first started blogging.  I have an almost eighteen month old little boy, Caelen, who is the absolute centre of my world.  He's turned into such a little character, and knows exactly what he wants.  He has his mama completely wrapped around his little finger, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Of course, there have been days that I've questioned my parenting ability, especially as a single mother, but for the most part I think I do alright!




Up until October last year, we lived with my family, but now we're out in the big bad world on our own.  Having our own house is lovely, and it's only a two minute walk from my parents house. Even though I'm only renting, I have lots of plans for this house, starting with clearing out the garden and buying a swing set.  And maybe a puppy.  I can't wait to make it a proper home for Caelen, somewhere he feels safe and loved.

Those of you who used to read my old blog, Daiquiris and Denial, will remember me talking about Caelen's dad.  He's not part of the picture anymore, though he does see Caelen for two hours every week.  It was for the best to remove him from my life, and I'm a lot happier since I made that decision.  For the last three months or so, I've been seeing someone.  He's good `to me, good with Caelen, and his Twitter bio describes him as being "bearded and awesome".  What more does a girl want?


After almost six years in a job I hated, I finally plucked up the courage to leave.  I started a job in the Irish branch of Poundland, Dealz, in July, and I love it.  While the job itself is similar to what I was doing, there's more responsibility day to day.  I've got to meet some lovely new people, and find out who my real friends were in the old job.  So... good and bad I guess.


Speaking of work, I've just realised that I have to be there in just under an hour and I'm still in my pyjamas.  I think I was a little bit too enthusiastic about getting back into blogging once I got my internet this morning.  Until next time,
