A Year On

Its a year since I wrote my first blog post.

I started this blog as a way of recording family life, of Little Owl's development and how the renovation of our house has progressed.
I have posted lots about Little Owl!  She is the universe that our family spins around!  To think a year ago, she wasn't a toddler.  She had taken her first steps but didn't think much of them and only had 9 words - a far cry from the chatter box we have now! 

I haven't posted anywhere near enough about our renovations though.  Probably because progress is very slow!  Our dinning room still has a hole in the ceiling, bare brick walls and half the floor needs replacing!  We do have a new fireplace though, and that was worth a blog post!  

As for me, I've survived a year without a 'proper' job!  I've worked in half a dozen different schools, done tutoring and exam marking, and all of it far less stress full than a permanent job.  I am in the same boat as I was a year ago, without a job to go to in September, but this time I'm not at all worried about it!

And the blog - it appears people are actually reading it!  So thank you to all of you that are here!  There is a website called Tots100 that ranks all the parenting blogs in the UK, there are several thousand blogs signed up and for the last two months I have been ranked in the top 900 which is very exciting.

Since starting the blog you can now find me (and my blog) on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and very recently Instagram!  So if you aren't already following me - hop on over - I'd love to see you there!

Meanwhile, thank you for joining me on this journey, and I hope you stick by me for the forth coming year!
