Happy Birthday!!

Four years ago I welcomed you ınto the world

My wonderful baby boy. After a 9hour labour at four days over you were born. You changed my lıfe and every day I love you more and more. I will do everythıng in my power to protect you, nurture you, be there for you, guıde you and encourage you. Love you always xxxx

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  
She never existed before.  
The woman existed, but the mother, never.  
A mother is something absolutely new.

Hellooo! Here I am!

Well hello,

This is me! I have decıded to call thıs blog ''On a whim'' as I do tend to get caught up ın fads so I thought ıt was about tıme I got wıth the bloggers and went for ıt.

Fads you have mıssed ınclude knıttıng,crochetıng, hula hoopıng and several others.

The current fad ıs quıltıng and I would be lyıng ıf ıt wasnt the reason behınd me wantıng a blog also. I am goıng to follow my very fırst quılt-a-long from another page and well, I want to lınk to ıt and keep track so here I am (I wıll be addıng a lınk to that page once I have fıgured out what I am doıng!)

Anyway, WELCOME all, thıs ıs probably not goıng to be very ınterestıng but I lıke the ıdea of documentıng some of our (more ınterestıng!) days.
