When I was younger I wondered how it was that adults were so out of touch with the zeitgeist. I was pretty certain I'd never be like that. But now I know, I really do know. I spent 6 years making 3 children, and by the time I'd caught on my sleep the whole world seemed to have changed. Fashion-wise everyone was wearing belts around their middle, music-wise I still haven't caught up (what is Dubstep exactly?) and technology-wise the whole social media thing happened.
I was too busy changing nappies to keep up with anything going on outside my family. I was pretty pleased with myself when I figured out how to write a blog and upload pictures but that was the sum of it. But the longer I ducked out the faster the world seemed to move forward and now that Violet is 2 I've decided I need to catch up. And it's been a revelation. Last month I upgraded to an i-phone to find out what the whole 'app' thing was all about and the first thing I did was fall in love with Instagram. Here's a small selection of pictures I've taken over the last 4 weeks - the lenses really beautify everything! It's been lovely to find so many familiar and new bloggers on there too. I'm happy to have taken this small step back into the wider world. If anyone has any tips on great apps please do let me know!
So now I've just got Twitter, playsuits and Facebook to conquer. And who is Simon Cowell?
