Worse than man-flu

Sitting here writing through squinted eyes and a heavy head, I finally understand what men go through when they have "man flu" only I feel worse, seeing I have "pregnancy flu" (meaning I cannot take any drugs for it!). I honestly cannot remember feeling this bad for a long long time.

Oh, that's right - congrats to me ha? I am pregnant. (yes it has been a while since I have posted). I am due in 9 weeks time actually! (InshAllah).

I keep thinking - do I keep this blog open and add to it? Will I ever add to it? Should I open a new blog? etc etc. I am hoping when I am a stay at home mum that I'll have more time to write about my overly boring mother's club style stories. But who knows!

Wish me all the best - if anyone ever reads this blog anymore!! :)

Lost my mo-jo?


Why do I always NOT stick to a task? I was never a hyper child, and I can never recall being easily distracted. Sure I would be off with the fairies at times, day dreaming or observing something that perhaps the other kids didn't. And no, Alhamdulilah I don't have autism. So here I am, in my mid 20's (okay, kinda creeping towards the 30 mark), and I am still distracting myself if I find the opportunity to. 

So at around lunchtime, I wrote a rather large list of things to do around the house. I even put square and circle tick boxes just to motivate myself. I got as far as the first item, that being to pray, and completed the task. Tick! Then onto the next item, right? Umm...not quite. It is now miserably dark, the sun has set (okay, in London that means 4pm - grr!) and I ended up spending the whole day throwing out things. Yes I did do work, but not what I originally set out to do. It was a hell of a lot of fun though. I threw out clothes (okay, I will give them to charity), receipts, beauty products I have never ever used, and so forth. After throwing out items, you would think I would now be going back to the original list to start ticking it off. Instead I find myself on Blogger!

I wonder if there will ever come a day when I learn to stick to a list/plan. 

Do people learn to do that with age, or does this "distracting" oneself get worse?

I better get some food into me. This is way too deep for my liking. Getting back into blogging isn't easy, ya know?  ;)

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

After a year and a half, this funky chicken is baaaaaaaaaaaack! (by popular demand of course) (well her sister's request anyway).

I have missed writing on this blog, I really have! I thought about it so many times, and thought I would start a new blog...but if I started a new one, the connection to my past wouldn't be made, therefore making things kind of dry.

So here I am again! My husband (yes, we are still married :P) just asked what I am doing. I have to admit, I am very random. I should be getting ready for our weekend trip, but here I am blogging. Nothing has changed in that respect...I have always chopped and changed and distracted myself since I can remember.

I best be off.

Til next time!
