So here I am again the world's worst blogger!! It seems hard to believe that this time last year I was sat crying as I was overdue and fed up!! It's not much fun being pregnant in the heat with a 16mth old running you ragged and to make things worse David was made redundant days before. But heyho a whole year later and things are so very different.
This last year has been full of ups and downs, Charlie Moo's
has taken off from a little project to a proper business. I've mentioned before
about how I now receive business help from the Prince's Trust
I recently met Rodger Seaman
. I always find these situations quite worrying .... I end up feeling like a 15 year old chatting about an idea I have with a 'grown up'. Although I have confidence in my product ... why wouldn't I it sells daily in this faceless society of the internet. But to actually chat to someone who has the business knowhow that I lack can be intimidating and I always begin to feel like a Mum playing shop. This is one of my own insecurities which I really should work on. Anyway after my nervous first 5 mins I went off on one and couldn't shut up! Which I'm hoping is a good thing, an he did say I was 'enthusiastic' haha! But the main point of my rambling was to say how gratifying it is when someone praises you for your product and hard work and acknowledges that there is a market out there and success is mine for the taking. So time for a little smile and mini yay!
David decided to ditch the office job and now works very long hours in the cold on a Trout Farm.
Yes, he smells.
Yes, my freezer is full of fish.
Yes, he has the most horrendous wet feet ....
But he is the happiest I've known he to be in years ..... all day in the fresh air, he's half the size he used to be and has a sickening tan. The stress and worry has all evapourated and now all he worries about is spending enough time with M&M.
So its 2 days till my baby girl is one ...... I find my relationship with Megan puzzling. I don't love her any less than Moo its just that things seem to have gone by so quickly and been so busy I seemed to have forgotten to stop and enjoy those prescious moments that I so frequently do with Moo. But I have learnt in my two early years as 'Mummy' that you have to stop beating yourself up about the what could have happened, what might have happened and what should have happened and just enjoy the here and now.
Well that is more than enough rambling tonight and a perfect moment to tuck in my beauties with good night kisses xxx
