My husband thinks I'm nuts....

Ok so day 2 of the Blog....and I've put Oscar the incredible screaming baby down for a nap so I'm here typing away.....Dear Hubby wakes up (it's 10.30am lucky bastard) and pokes his sleepy head round the door....

"Blogging again?"

"erm...yes...why?"

"What have you got to write about?".

Charming.

I mean, I know I'm a stay at home mum and my life isn't exactly scintillating but please! I've just started. I've got all sorts of shit to bore you with yet....

So I did a brief intro yesterday - here's a bit more about me....

I was born in 1971 in England but have lived ALL over the place due to my dad's job - he's a diplomat which makes me sound posh but I'm not. Honest. I lived in Moscow when I was 7, Belfast when I was 13 then went to boarding school while the folks lived in South Africa and Australia. Ok that does make me sound posh - boarding school.....

I have one sister. She's amazing if slightly mad....she lives in the US with her wife. Yes. You read that right - she's a very happily married lesbian. She's also a catholic. Don't ask me - I've never got my head round why she converted (yes, she CHOSE to be catholic) and joined a church that damns her.....

Don't get me started on religion....

I went to Leicester Polytechnic and studied performing arts. It was there I met dear hubby who was a Biologist. We were 19. He was my first boyfriend. I was his first girlfriend (all together now...awwwwww).....

We've been together ever since. He was going to be my first ever one night stand but he moved in the next day and that was that. Next year we'll have been married for 10 years. Eek!

Ok - so reading this you'll probably think I'm old, boring and posh.

LET ME CHANGE YOUR MIND. When I'm not feeling knackered. I will be back soon with scintillating wittiness and sparkle.....

Did I mention I'm a nut for anything sparkly....my nickname is Magpie.....

Hey

I have a blog too - it was my new year resolution - it is exceedingly boring, but I am quite enjoying it. How did you customise yours? Mine is the same blog host as you but I am not as technical. Anyway, love you more than my luggage and here is my blog addy:http/poplarjournal/blogspot.com/ - you can be my first reader, as can anyone who reads your comments section.

Sal sweetie, you're anything but boring! I'm glad you've started a blog - my, aren't we all trendy? I got myself out of bed to start my own but got distracted into checking yours out. I can see where this will lead...

Sal, you have sooooooooooo much to blog about! You've led one of the most interesting lives. Just sitting here I've got 8 million Sal stories running through my head ...

Your acting roles!
Reasons why Colin Firth sucks!
Smoking fags with your toes!
Janeyville!
Big Gladys!

Not to mention all of the day-to-day mom stuff. So many of us can relate to what you're going through. Share it with the world, Sweetie!

And Zoe, I'm going to be your second reader. On my way to your blog right now.
