A friend in London emailed me last night and said "what happened to Tales of a Tai Tai?". She hit a nerve. A good nerve, but a nerve nonetheless. I've been asking myself that same question a lot lately. What the hell did happen? How do you become so entrenched, so passionate, so committed to something for over 18 months and then one day just literally lose interest? I don't know how, but I know it did happen. I lost interest. In writing, in blogs, in a world of no real faces, no hugs, no smiles, no tears, no clinking of wine glasses over a belly laugh and a chunky slice of cheese. I got tired of the commitment and the pressure I was putting on myself to blog. I became protective of my privacy, of my family, of my son. I wanted out for while. So I did it. I got out.

Lately I've been feeling the urge to jump back in. To write again. To start spilling all again. And my friend's email gave me the push I didn't know I needed. I don't know if anyone will even read this anymore but does that really matter? Maybe it does. Maybe it doesn't. I don't know. What I do know is that I love this reminder of the precious moments with my baby, with my family. A way to remember how I felt, on good days, and on bad. How my story played out. I want to remember that.

And at the moment, that, looks a little something like this...

Welcome back! Life just happens that's how it is and there is nothing we can do about it, just enjoy..."listen to your heart, it knows everything"... what a lovely picture of your little man, he sure is growing fast. Cx

Hello again! I was also wondering just recently actually, not where you had 'gone', but whether you were ok. It's totally ok to have a blog break, not point writing just for the sake of it. Glad you are back though. Your little man has GROWN! Mel x

Well helooo tai tai!

I for one am happy to see you, but also feel your blogging thing- it can be exhausting!

I love reading back over the small, funny moments when my kids were little. They do too. I just blog when I feel like it/something happens. Take the pressure off yourself and enjoy recording what's important to YOU.

PS Your little guy is gorgeous and I can't wait to read about his antics.

Yay you're back :-) I read it (from Brisbane)

Oh Bridget, I'll be reading your tales, I have missed you! Though admittedly, I have been going through a similar phase of late. Not having enough time to blog or even read my fave blogs, LIFE has sort of taken over somewhat. I think the blogging lull happens to the best of us. But so happy to see you back here... and see an update of your fabulous little man, he is ADORABLE! xo

Hello again!

I was thinking the other day, what you might be up to and how Fletch must be growing up!

Glad to have you back x
