Last night I changed the header on my blog, ready for the Summer. As I always do when I change it, I had a little think back over all of those photos I've used on my blog and did some digging to find them all. I can't believe how the time has flown between December 2010 when I set up my blog and now, how small changes happen during the everyday moments and how quickly they turn into years.
The Boy was just over one in the first blog header, taken on Chesil Beach in Dorset. I've tried to change the headers to reflect the seasons and his growth, but they are always on a pebble beach and always with my gorgeous son in them. What you don't see is how long they take to take, even though they're on my smartphone; the sun is rarely in the right place when I have the time to get to the beach, the tide is too high or too low, he's not in the mood, the sky isn't blue, the list goes on.
I've been quite quiet on my blog for the past few months, with good reason. Two cancers for close family members have had a massive impact on my time and priorities, school has been draining with an inspection, and it's been difficult to manage my time; something had to give. At first it was just the 365 project, which I've recently rejoined, but it has taken its toll on the blog in general. I may manage to regain my blogging mojo over the Summer holidays, but either way I'm not going to beat myself up about it any more.
Life is for living after all!
