So it begins

So it begins

This is a new beginning.

Its the start of a new blog, a new outlook on life and for me to find my way back to something I once loved, hopefully.

Confused? Don’t worry, so am I most of the time.

But just keep reading and I will get to my point, eventually.

I’ll start by introducing myself. Hi, I am Nikki.

I am a thirty-something mother of 4 and this is my blog, where you will get a front row seat to my utter gibberish, my funny anecdote and stories of my family and the crazy, weird and wonderful stuff that we all get up to.

As you can see from my pic I am not your typical mum, you would find in the playground. I love the alternative lifestyle of rock, tattoo’s and bright whacky and wonderful hair colours.

Although I was always this brave with my hair and style choices. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I decided to dye my hair pink and then I got the colour bug and I found that I could be myself again.

It was at that point that I made a few life choices (not all were the best) and I made some changes and I stopped doing something that I actually really loved, blogging. I spent most of last year saying I was going to set up a new blog again and that I was going to put myself out there again.

Because for me, blogging was always very therapeutic, it was a place that I could write whatever was on my mind, what adventure me and my kids had been on and it also helped me put a lot of the feeling I had about my struggles with life and motherhood.

At the time it was my place to be me and it helped me become the person I am today, but I think I outgrew my other blog and it became something that wasn’t what I intended it to be and I think that is why I stopped.

So, here we are. I am starting again and finally putting my words into actions. Go me.

I know I haven’t really delved very deeply into my family and my kids in this post, but don’t worry there will be plenty of post about the hilarious mischief my 4 year old gets in to and then there is all the stroppy teenager moments from my eldest and my 2 middle children who always come up with random and funny stories and situations, that there is plenty of entertainment to come yet.

I hope you follow along.

And I guess what I know from this post is that you should always be yourself and do what you love.
