I'm back!

It's been weeks and weeks since I even looked at my blog. I have no excuse other than an extreme case of laziness! I lost my motivation, my direction. I no longer knew what to write or felt like I had anything interesting to say. I even neglected the blogs which I usually enjoy reading so much. For ages I didn't even miss the blogging world. I've been wrapped up in a happy little pregnant bubble and have whiled away the past weeks daydreaming about my baby. I love just to lie down quietly and feel my baby move inside me. It's been a happy time but a very unproductive one.

Now, the summer holidays are here. My work contract is over and I'm officially a lady of leisure, at least for the next couple of months. Now that I don't have work occupying a large part of my mind I feel much freer and ready to take on new projects. I've finally found my motivation again. 

I've spent a lot of time thinking about where my blog is going and the kind of blog I want to have. I feel that a lot of the time I post pretty pictures and meaningless words. I don't often write about what I'm really passionate about. I still haven't figured out exactly where I'm going but I do feel like I need to make a few changes. This post by Melissa at Miss Sew & So got me thinking about how I write. I need to become braver and write what I want to write, not what I think other people might like to read. I want to make my blog more like a journal of what I do rather than trying to create a perfect (and false) image of my life. I need to be more real. 

Thank you to those of you who have been asking for me during my absence and for continuing to leave comments even though I've been so terrible at replying. You've helped me to bring my blog back to life x x 

Here's the most recent picture of me and darling husband at a local vineyard (no yummy wine for me unfortunately!) At almost 6 months pregnant I still just look a little chubbier than normal most of the time but my little bump is doing well and making everyone very happy
