So……. I’ve decided to give this blogging thing a go!
This is me!
Things that you may or may not wish to know about me (though if I’ve lost you this soon, heaven help me!):
- I’m Vicki.
- I’m 30 (lets not mess around with any of this 29 + 1 rubbish ok?!).
- I am married to a wonderful, bearded, bear of a man.
- We have two amazing little girls.
- I love to make things. Crafting, cooking, you name it, I’ll probably try it!
- I cannot walk past a charity shop without having a rummage.
- I am hopelessly devoted to buying new notepads.
- I am not going to be at my best friends wedding.
This last fact breaks my heart a little bit. Ok, a lot actually! She was at my wedding and I always figured I would be at hers. Unfortunately it is some distance away and it would be difficult and expensive for me to travel to. Cue slightly awkward conversation between two people who have never been awkward around each other, ever.
Me (after going over it for a few months in my head): “I don’t think I can come to your wedding” *sob*
Her: “that’s fine – honestly!”
I was worried I was letting her down. I think she was worried the thoughts of travel and cost would be stressing me out. If only we’d talked about it sooner. Then she reminded me that I could still come to the reception they were planning to have at home.
Her: “There’ll always be Manchester!”
Me: “That would be a brilliant name for my blog!”
It has been a realllllllllly long time since I did any writing. I have worried that I would make a complete and utter hash out of this. However, I am trying to push myself to do things that scare me. Don’t get me wrong, you’re not going to catch me throwing myself from the open door of a plane strapped to a flimsy piece of material any time soon. But an on-line diary?? I can do that!
There will always be Manchester where the wedding is concerned. Though I have come to realise, in life, there might not. So, the aim of this blog is to help me get focused on the things I want from my life. Time is flying and I want to be able to say I grabbed that bull by the horns people!
I dedicate this first post to my lovely best friend. She helped me realise that maybe I could do this after all. Did I mention she’s an English teacher – so I really hope she likes it!!
So here is to adventure my friends, (preferably the non life-threatening kind!)
Until next time….
