Not in the literal, bricks and mortar sense, but I am moving in to a new home on the internet. For several years I "lived" at another blogging space, but over the last couple of years I have posted less and less. Much has changed in my life since I first set up my original blog. I have moved from full time motherhood to full time work; my children have grown and are at very different stages; my interests have changed and developed. After drifting for a long time, reluctant to let go of a space I had loved, it suddenly feels time to move on. My hope is that a new start in a new blogging home will inspire me to write and find my voice again.
I have called this new blog Crazy Paving. The title jumped into my mind and when I looked for a definition I found this - "a form of paving, as for a path, made of slabs of stone of irregular shape fitted together". It seems a good fit for a life that is a haphazard mix of rather random elements, oddly matched and constantly changing in the patterns they make with each other. Life is busy and often chaotic and I may not be able to post as often as I would like, but I intend to try to write regularly. As my old blog was written under a pseudonym, mainly to protect my family's privacy, I am not going to link to it from here. I hope that old friends will find their way here and will continue to read; I also hope it will be a place in which I will meet new friends - if you are new here please don't be shy, I would love you to introduce yourself in the comments.
