Je m’ennui

This last few months I have been meaning to get back to my blog. It has been on a rather long hiatus – longer than even I realised. May was the last entry and a lot has happened since then.

In order to encourage myself to start writing again, I challenged myself to a “post-a-day-January”. And I also got a nice DM on twitter from a nice man who gave me a gentle tap to get on with it as well.  I managed to let the first day of the year slip by, but here I am on the 2nd Jan, beginning a post.

From early November up until now things have been a little blurry. Our amazing son has been here for 8 weeks now, and my daytime is broken up by 2 hour intervals when he feeds – it’s amazing how quickly they fly by when they are demarcated in this way. The evenings are a little less time-intensive, but I’ve been like a zombie (or a beached whale) on the couch. Anyhow, I’ve noticed how dull I’ve become. I can talk to you about the plot line of the bold and the beautiful (same old shit…Taylor versus Brooke,  Forester creations under siege etc etc – earily similar  to the last time I watched in the early 90s) and I have become a HUGE fan of TMZ – more on this later probably. But there is only so much you can talk about B&B or TMZ; and indeed, while my son is an endless source of fascination for me, and my friends are happy for us and his safe arrival – there is only so much I can talk about on that topic as well.

Basically, I feel I am boring. Je m’ennui. Literally translated – I bore myself. So this “post-a-day-January” is an attempt to talk about anything – some days it may indeed be all about the action in my son’s nappy, but I hope not.

I hope it gets me thinking again.

But here is a gratuitous picture of my son. He’s very sweet you see. He’s just stated to do this cute thing with spit…

  1. Thx for your tweet about my blog. Very kind of you. I researched my family history online when I was on mat leave. Gave me a sense of purpose outside breastfeeding and burping. Highly recommend it.
