This weekend my middle daughter sent me this picture...
it made me giggle a lot.
Am I obsessed with my blog - nooooo !
Am I a little distracted at times, ummm maybe, do I sometimes miss bits of conversation here and there, well yes, quite possibly...
but as to the very serious allegations of child neglect, not too concerned about these as little Beth is actually ... 21!
However I do have to admit that I do love my blog, ALOT..
I can honestly say that pretty much right up to the day that I started my blog I really
hadn't ever thought it would be something that I would do.
I wasn't even really aware of the whole world of blogs.
But when my best friend moved away I really missed our little daily crafty updates,
and suddenly there it was ... out of nothing came Just Pootling.
She blogs, The Chronicles of Emily Bronte , and I blog and all is good in the world.
Wherever she goes on her boat we can see what each other is up to.
It was our little going away present to each other.
I began dipping in to a few crochet blogs that people recommended, Attic 24 and Little Tin Bird being two that really taught me so much when I was learning to crochet.
One blog led to another blog and another and another and before long there was just no going back... I was hooked.
There are so many things that I love about blogging from the creativity it brings, the little circle of blog friends that I now have, the opportunity to see all the other amazingly inspirational things that others are doing, the things that I have learnt to do on my computer that I never would have learnt without my blog, to catching up with all the blogs that I follow and the little tingle of excitement when I see that one of them has a new post.
I love discovering new blogs and adding them to my list of Favourite Blogs.
So HOORAY for blogs, in all their wonderful different shapes and sizes, from here , there and everywhere.
Sometimes I worry that my blog may come across as me putting out there about all that I have done, and its all a bit yay, look at me and in these moments of doubt I sometimes call it my Smug, but these moments don't last long because maybe we should all sing our own praises a little from time to time.
My blog is just my little bit of me time in amongst all the hustle and bustle and madness that each day brings at home and at work, and I love it just for that reason.
What do you think ?
I'd love to know.
On a crafty front, nothing much to report today other than a piccy of the finished puppy jumper and a quick whizz round the kitchen whipping up some cakes for a charity day at work tomorrow.
Happy blogging everyone.
