I am mummy to a very lively one year old boy who likes to climb absolutely everything in sight and then smile with a mischievous glint in his eye. He is fast becoming a playful toddler. I started this blog when he was 5 months old as a way to keep a record of baby’s development and all our memories.
Given that I wasn’t sleeping very much those first few months it was a good way to actually capture some memories and a way to keep my brain alive.
It’s turned into a little more than that now. It’s now about Baby Boy Z, Me, and everything we feel like writing about (mainly all from me as he’s 1 and would much rather climb on the laptop. Or bang it).
And my blog name? Well, when I first started maternity leave I was under some mad illusion that it would be a year off work. After the 3rd month of broken, disturbed and very little sleep I realised that this was definitely Not My Year Off. I decided I would continue to write under this blog name once my maternity leave finished, mainly because I’m too lazy to start another blog and partly because it’s all where I want it. I’m now back at work on a part time basis and god…it doesn’t feel like part time!
