The other day my husband was reading through my blog.
He said that he thought it was good...but a bit twee!
A bit too pretty and flowery and "isn't life great" twee!
When quizzed, he explained that I only really wrote nice things.
This has got me thinking...
Why do I write a blog? Why do I share certain things and not others?
(He also asked why I referred to him as 'husband', so for the record he's called Neil!)
Anyway, back to - 'I only really write about nice things'. Umm... yes?
I chose to blog so that I could share the amazing life that I think we have here in Australia. Of course it's not perfect, but I don't think anyone is at all interested whether I'm having a bad hair day, or the fact that I got out of bed on the wrong side.
I think that I write about everyday day things. I will occasionally share some challenges, the downs as well as the ups of life, but he's right, on the whole I do only blog about the good side of life. I suppose blogging for me is a controlled diary. I only share parts of my life that I choose...
So just this once, (with tongue in cheek) to balance things a wee bit and so that I don't give the impression that life is always rosy here, prepare yourself for a few glimpses of some of things in my life this week....
Both ipod and iphone are still working but there was a nasty glass splinter yesterday...
On the subject of glass -this fog light has had a crack in it for a while and it's now well and truly in need of repair...just add it to the list of car repairs.
The lovely dent and scratch on the other car happened when a much bigger car decided to change lanes and didn't quite see us. It's going to take 2-3 weeks to repair and can't be fitted in to the garage until almost the end of May!
(I did think of taking some photos of the kitchen after tea and the bathroom after Sibs had her shower...but I have spared you. Just use your imagination....it was broccoli and cheese soup - very green,
with crusty bread - lots and lots of crumbs!
...and Sibs hasn't quite mastered the art of placing toothpaste directly on her brush!)
I still think in the future I'll be mainly sticking to pretties and the good side of life...
Pahh, what do husbands know about blogging??

A quick note to finish - it usually takes me minutes to write a blog post...this one took ages.
It must be much easier writing about good things!
