I am sitting here at 2.55am on New Years day listening to my next door neighbours drawing their night of festivities to an end. I’m not sure they need to be vacuuming though! It’s been a quiet one for us. Just me, Allan, Lily and her Granddad. We didn’t see the New Year in together as it’s not really how we roll here.
As I sit here in the dark (I turned the light on and a bulb blew causing the switch on the fuse box to knock off!) I can faintly hear both Allan and Lily snoring in bed. Lily is in our bed due to not being able to sleep. This is caused by either A: Her fake unwellness (always a dubious excuse), or B: The fireworks going off since around 10pm (which is the more likely of the two). Either way, I was clinging to the edge of the bed. You know the place. It’s where you are lying on the seam, moments away from plunging to the bedroom floor. So instead of trying to force myself to sleep, it was easier to come downstairs and make use of the semi quiet to write this.
The purpose is purely to have a play around with the theme of the blog.
I have changed the style from Pachyderm, which now seems a little babyish for my almost four year old daughter, to a more simple style. Please feel free to comment with your approval or disdain. Given that I have a limited amount of free styles to choose from, please be gentle with me.
You will notice too, that the title has altered a little. I feel that as Lily is no longer a toddler, I needed to change at least that part of the title. So from herein, toddler has changed to kid. Nothing fancy, just more suitable. I have also changed the tag to reflect the change, and it now says – It continues here, instead of it all starts here.
Nothing else will change at the moment.
I will continue to keep my blog free from advertising, unless WordPress see fit to sneak one in..
I don’t use photos of Lily, and for the time being, this will still be so.
Thank you to my followers for your continued support. I’d like to say without you, I’d be nothing, but that isn’t true, so I won’t.
This blog is for Lily to read when she is of an age to do so. She will be my most important audience member, but I welcome you to continue to share the high and lows along the way.
Happy New Year
I’m also going to change the site address to
I will do this before my next post.
