I’ve been getting back into blogging – more specifically book blogging and reading challenges for the last few weeks but one main event has been in the background for some time.

My second child was due to be born on the 8th October. Well she decided that she wasnt going to wait that long and was born on the 26th September at 11.34pm weighing a good 8lb 2oz.

It was all a little bit dramatic and an emergency c-section was needed but thankfully everything was ok in the end. The best bit is her big brother absolutely adores her!

Welcome to the world Evie-May!

It’s been a very very long time since I’ve blogged. Nearly 4 years! So much has changed in my life and it was during a recent camping trip with my OH and son that we were discussing blogging. I’d never hidden the blog from him intentionally but I’ve also never really mentioned that I had one. We were reading other peoples travel and camping blogs and discussing having our own when I mentioned that I used to blog about books and my life. He wanted to know why I didnt do it anymore – well I guess the answer was . . . well I didnt know! Which is what has brought me back here as I really used to enjoy it as a place to talk about books and read others thoughts too.

I’ve still been reading a lot over the last few years but with a lot of time constraints all I’ve really been mananging is adding stars to reviews on goodreads so I’m hoping that I can really start to enjoy this again.

We are also looking at starting our own blog in regards to travel and camping with the kids as that also looks fun! We have really been bitten by the camping blog and I’d love to start recording thoughts with hubby on that!

Currently we have our own engineering business (more on that at another time!). Six months ago we moved away from our family and friends – only an hour away but its amazing how many people you loose contact with when you move and who actually stays around – they are your true friends! We also have a nearly 4 year old boy (in October!) and we are also expecting our second baby – a little girl this time – also in October! On top of that I’m studying for an accountancy qualification from home so I dont have masses of free time but I’ve not lost my passion for reading!

I’m really looking forward to blogging again and learning all in the community that has changed. I’ve got so many new ideas too of posts and everything else and I cant wait to get started!
