I sell drugs Monday to Friday and shoot people on weekends, I'm a wife and mama, and love all things stylish, my kindle, cake(who doesn't?) and trying to balance it all with a Beagle puppy thrown in to the mad mix in our Old Bake House.....

This weekend has felt like Spring. Snowdrops are out, sun was shining and I can just feel the lift in the air. Look at Miss M! Spring-tastic! Demonstrating my point oh-so-well. I do indeed have a catalogue of pics from this weekend but unfortunately my card reader has once and for all died. So you will have to see them tomorrow! I promise....
When I was out running yesterday (with Beagle Boy who tripped me up zero times YAY) I was thinking about blogging and how personal it is. Depending on how far you take it. A few of the well knowns, Rockstar, Cup of Jo etc, kind of blog about life but then when you dissect it, they really don't at all. Know what I mean? And there is a reason for that. Who wants to hear people whining about the shittier aspects of their life? Bake a cake instead! But when I chat with my real friends, we all have the same relationship/work/child problems (ish) maybe a few variations on a theme, but the one thing we agree on is life is HARD! And also that it is what you make it. And I am caught between blogging about real life or blogging about the best bits?????
How do you decide?
I read once that you should never complain about your partner to anyone, that it's one of the routes to a successful marriage. But where is the FUN in not sharing with your girlfriends the fact that your husband had a major meltdown at 7am about why he always empties out the bin, on the day where you had a HUGELY important work meeting, and was also smack bam in the middle of debating why you must wear a skirt with tights to your 2 year old, and brushing your teeth and packing your bag??
Can that be shared on a blog? Maybe the blog entitled "my husband is like a four year old who dropped his ice cream" blog, or "I am better than this!!!"blog . Maybe it's riskier, as family read it, or ex boyfriends or crazy ex girlfriends but then at least I am achieving what I set out to do, which is record life! Share! And actually this whole post has made me realise I want to do both. So be prepared :)
