    • Dear Readers...
      • It depends on which blog you are talking about really. If it's the random writing blog it would be anyone who searched for a tag that I list really so...

        Dear reader,
        Thank you for reading all of my nothings and following when you see fit. It's nice to know that some people are bothered about the silly nothings of day to day existence and as this is only a blog in it's very early stages you instantly rock for being there to give me the confidence to keep writing and growing!
        Love Me!

        If it's my pregnancy blog I'd assume that the readers are either pregnant, ttc or already mums/dads in which case I'd say...

        Dear lovely mums, dads and soon to be's!
        Thank you for following me in my journey through pregnancy and life as a family, it really makes me feel great to know that something I say, no matter how big or small, may have some impact in your family/ttc life. I love that you are sticking with me and watching how I develop as both a pregnant woman and mother and can't wait to see how this all pans out (fingers crossed for the dream child that doesn't cry, sleeps in solid 8 hour blocks and comes out perfectly potty trained!) I always follow mummy/daddy/ttc blogs back and look forward to reading all of your adventures in life too.
        Best of luck to you all and love to you and your families
        Love from the Mummy in Me!

        Finally if you look at my new photography blog I'd have to say...

        Dear viewer,
        Thank you for looking at the pictures that I take, even though I'm new to blogging about them! I really enjoy taking pictures and really enjoy that you are looking at the things that I produce.
        I am by no means a professional photographer, I don't claim to be and never will but I'd love your feedback and constructive criticism as I'd love to see how I can improve - I know that I have a long ways to go :o)
        You rock!
        Love Me

    • Musing on November
      • Fireworks

        Dark nights, cold mornings, fireworks, bonfire toffee, jacket potatoes, birthdays and getting older!

        As the clocks have gone back the nights just seem to last forever. We finish work at 6pm and by that time, the dark nights have set in and all I want to do is go home to bed.

        This month see's the birthday of my cousin (today in fact) my younger brother and my baby niece. Not only is it an expensive month in terms of gift giving - not that I mind ... I actually love to give gifts! - I'm also another year closer to the big 3-0 myself.

        I do love November but I also start to panic by the end of it as I'm never ready for Christmas!

    • Letter to (Future) Me
      • Dear Me,

        How are you? I sincerely hope that you are well, healthy and insanely happy!

        As we write this now we are fast approaching our 29th birthday and we are also 29 weeks pregnant with our first child - this means that we are now writing to our nearly 50 year old self and our baby will be a baby no more, she will be an adult who is possibly off at some University, possibly working in a job that she (hopefully) adores, maybe she is in a relationship, she may even be engaged or married and have a child of her own?!?! It is bizarre writing about those possibilities knowing that at this point we haven't even met this little girl yet ... we can't wait though!

        I also wonder how the hubby is, has he worked his way up to run a marathon during these 20 years after just completing his first half? Does he still work at the same company (is the company even going any more?!?!?!) or did he start his own company? I must say that at this point I hope that he managed to start his own business - I think that it would suit him well :o)

        I do hope that these 20 years have treated you well and I hope that as you have aged that you have grown more confident and are now happier with yourself. I hope that you have a thriving family life and that you finally plucked up the courage to pursue your dreams of starting your own little craft business. I hope that you have managed to travel all over the world with your family and that you have experienced things that, at this point, I can only dream about and if you don't already, I think that you and the hubby should book that holiday back to Las Vegas next year (depending on the age of your youngest of course - not much fun to be had for the under 21's!) so that you can renew your vows as you said you would back here in 2012! It will be fun and you'll fall in love with the place all over again!

        Right well I'd better sign off even though I know that I could go on for hours with all the do's and dont's for our future life but please realise, if you haven't already, that the world isn't always out to get you, people aren't always out to hurt you and that you deserve to be happy. Please love yourself and your family (I know that last bit won't be hard) and know that I'll work as hard as I can in order to make your life then a great place to be.

        Love you,
        Love from me!
