My, has it been over a month since the last time I’ve been here?! Time seems to just slip away when the whole family gets sick… Ugh! Can somebody please tell me who or what has stolen our Spring? Why are we still stuck in winter? When, oh when will this end? Sigh… I just stumbled on an old post the other day about Sprout 1 getting sick for the first time when he was about 11 months. Ah, afraid I can’t say the same of Sprout 2! The benefits of being a younger sibling to a preschooler apparently entail getting sick all the time from very early on.
I had actually written this post last week, a nice, longish post that seemed to come so nicely together (you know when your thoughts just flow?). And then I somehow managed to lose all but the first paragraph (which I had previously saved) just when the sleeping baby woke from his nap and I couldn’t bring myself anywhere near the blog for a while. And then we got sick again… Unbelievable, right? Hopefully this will be the last of it. Moving on…
So, a lot has been happening behind the scenes chez the Sprout family. Birthdays were celebrated (the Sprouts are now 1yo and 4yo, can you believe it!!!), family visitors have come and gone (my Mom is still here though, yay!), we’ve had Sprout 1′s performance for his school’s fancy fair, and I’ve been writing a couple of posts for Fans of Flanders, a collaboration which I unfortunately had to end because, hello, have you seen me around here this past month? No? That’s because there aren’t enough hours in the day for what I want and need to do. I just figured, if I’m going to be writing somewhere, I’d rather do it here. I’ve come to the realisation that I was just taking on too many things for the phase of life I’m in, even though sometimes it feels like I get nothing done, but that’s a different story. I’m also, very sadly, stepping down from my role as group leader for my local BCT group.
In other news, I’ve been tinkering around the blog a bit. The new logo (thanks to the work of one of my very best friend’s partner Pedro) and look has been up for a few months now and I’ve changed servers recently, as well as migrated the whole thing from wordpress.com to wordpress.org (which I THINK explains the couple of random update emails subscribers have received recently – my apologies! I’m working it out!). I truly enjoy my little corner of the internet, and I really value my readers, so I’m planning on taking better care of this little blog. On that note, I would love to hear what you would like to read more of on the blog. Feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments or just drop me an email at bxlsprout (at) gmail (dot) com.
And don’t forget to check back on Tuesday. I’ll have a special offer I’m really excited about!
