My Family

After my last blog I made a decision that I would now blog about my family.  I am not sure how long this will last but I will give it a go.

As some of you know we are now a family of 5, with my daughter being born back in the 22nd of January.  This was an exciting time for us all.  Another chance for Lucas to be a big brother and Tyler being a big brother for the first time. Parenting was something that didn't come that natural to me, which I find a bit surprising.  When I around 16/17 I used to baby sit a fair bit my nephew when he was a baby and didn't find it that difficult or stressful.  I guess the additional pressure of work and a home adds to that.  Now 6 years on I feel I have grown into the task.

Lucas, who is 6, is football daft at the moment.  He would spend all day every day doing something which involved football.  He would play football, kick a football in the house, look at all his football cards, play Fifa on the PS3 or DS.  His least favourite is actually watching football on the TV.  

Tyler, our 4 year old, pretty much does whatever his older brother does, he literally idolises him, which is great.  At times he just sits and watches Lucas playing games on the DS.  With him wanting to be just like his big brother, he has just started playing football too.  Although it takes him a little more time to get involved, he seems to be loving it.

This pretty much is a introduction to my family.  I will be blogging about them more in the future.

Lost...

Hi all,

Its been a while since I have posted.  Some of you may know that I have had another baby (well not me personally but you know what I mean) and she is now 4 weeks old.  Well over the last few days I have been thinking about putting a blog post up but to be honest I was unsure of what to put in it.

When I first started this blog it was to get an outlet for my M.E.  It was so family members and friends could see what I was putting up with everyday and hopefully give them a little bit of an insight on what was going on.  I then tried to update when I found anything useful that had helped me but once I had dealt with the Gluten Free thing there was nothing much else.  Last year I tried to do a rediscovery or the blog.  I was planning on writing about my 2 pastimes gaming and golf.  Golf was just something that I was getting back into and was super enthusiastic about it.  Gaming was something that I had done at least 3 times a week for the best part of 2 years with the good guys over at Frugal Gaming.

At the moment I am at a junction, both in life and with this blog I guess.  My M.E. is as under control as it has ever been.  Between being on a Gluten Free diet and also finding the alternative to pain meds everything is working for me at the moment.  I am still going to try and play golf this year but I am nowhere near as enthused as last year.  Finally my gaming.  This is maybe what saddens me the most.  I have enjoyed playing with mostly the same group of guys for a few years.  It would be easy for me to say that I don't have the time with having a baby but to be honest that is not really true.  I probably have the same couple of hours per night that I had before.  Its not gaming burnout that we have all suffered from at some point.  It seems that I have just lost my passion at the moment for everything that is not my family.

So at this point I have decided that my blog will take another twist (are you bored of this yet) and it will include more about my family.  I am sure it will have the occasional thing about golf, gaming and M.E. but it will be focused on my family life rather than anything else.

So here is to something new, catch you all on the other side
