About me: my name is Michelle, I just turned 30, and I live in New Zealand with my partner (who we will call Harry) and our wee son (to be hereby named Adoomi), who is almost two. I am a midwife and work at the biggest birthing unit in the country, but currently only do that on occasional weekends when I can spare time away from life.
About the blog: This is pretty much going to be a mommy blog, with random posts about my life thrown in. I am writing it so I have my thoughts and memories documented somewhere other than my ridiculously forgetful brain, and so that my son can read them if he’s interested when he’s older. I don’t anticipate that anybody else will actually read this but if you’re here then welcome!
About the posts: I have lots of titles and things I want to write about so if any pique your interest then please let me know and I’ll tap a post about for you. My list thus far includes Kidney Donation, Europe Rescue, Life as a Midwife, 30 RAKs for my 30th Birthday, The Day my Son was Kissed by the Pope, Living a Quiet Life (or not), Always By My Side, Thinking Like a Midwife, My Sister My Hero, My Sister the Sister, Life in Uganda, Winter in Japan, Rafting on the Nile, How Not to Holiday in the Pacific, There but for the Grace of God go I, Acting Like an Adult, The Value of Being Valued, Adoomi’s Birth Story, and Oh to have a Magic Wand. Then there are other things I’ll probably do, like write about potty training, breastfeeding, bed sharing, food, biking, Mass, exercise, baking, climbing the Mount, Lent/Advent/Christmas, Pentatonix, and Savemart (yes I know, it’s a weird mix of strange bits); and I might even venture out into the blogosphere to join up with things like What I Wore Sunday, 7 Quick Takes Friday, 5 Favourite Things, and the like. Phew, what a paragraph! As I said, feel free to drop a comment and let me know if you want to read anything there’s not already a link to. I’m sure that’ll give me the kick I need to actually write it if I haven’t already. Happy reading and feel free to drop me any comments good or bad, just keep it G-rated.
