Hello – and thanks for stopping by on day 1 of my Blog Every Day in May Challenge (#BEDM) hosted by the lovely Rosalilium. Yes I have decided that the answer to my sporadic blogging is to challenge myself to blogging each day for the month of May – thats 31 posts, one per day. There are some prompts for each day – some I’ll follow, and other days I’ll do my own thing.
So the prompt for day 1, is Introduce Yourself which seems like a pretty good place to start! I’m Jo, I’m 33 and I am Mummy to my two little munchkins. The Girl is 4 and starts school in September. She goes to nursery 5 mornings a week and loves it. She also loves all things crafty, being outdoors and Disney Princesses! She was joined in September by The Boy who turned 7 months a couple of days ago. He is into cardboard boxes, strange coloured purees and his best friend is the baby in the mirror who we seem to bump into wherever we are. We have an almost 4 year age gap between the children which was not what we planned, but we are happy to have our family complete now.
Mr HFJ and I have been married for 5 years, and together for 14, since we met at University. We originally settled in Devon, but last year we relocated with his work and now live in North Derbyshire in the East Midlands. We are still finding our feet up here and enjoying exploring new places to visit. I’m an At Home mum at the moment and am very fortunate that we are able to make that decision. It’s something I love, although its also a challenge some days too!
You can look forward to learning lots more about us, and what we get up to over the month of May. We are off to Butlins for a holiday next week so I’ll show you what we get up to, as well as some home updates too through the month.
I can’t wait to find some new blogs to follow over the next month too. So if you’re reading please say hi so I can come and see your blogs too (and I talk to myself enough in the real world – I’d love to know that I’m talking to someone here!). Happy Reading.
