I have wanted to do a blog for about three years now. We had a tiny weeny family blog when I was pregnant with my daughter, Ryn (now nearly 3), and I was just never quite organised enough to do it when my son Fox (now 9 months) was camping out in-utero.
After all, there's so many choices! You have to know what URL you're going to choose! AND title! And it has to look cool! So, for me, that was enough to delay this undertaking for a couple of years. Alas, I did make it in the end; so ahoy Poppins, and let's set sail!
