I love reading blogs.  Lately I've been browsing around "vanity" blogs, I guess you could call them, that focus on clothes, makeup, general lifestyle for the twenty-something girl (which I think is easy to forget I still am!)  I won't be that kind of blogger really, I'm far too invested in saving for a "forever home" deposit than buying jewellery from Tiffanys (although sometimes I like to look).

I can't say I've ever looked back at the "carefree" life of having no kids and thought I'd be better off, but it does mean the difference between partying every weekend and sitting in watching your child wandering around in circles with Playmobil Noah (from the ark) hanging out of her mouth (true story).  I wouldn't give it up for the world but it's interesting how different the two kinds of blogs would be.  "Vanity" blogs and "mommy" blogs.

I must admit I like the appeal of the vanity blog - it makes the writer seem so, for lack of a better word, cool.  I never wanted to be the mommy blogger who writes an entire post about baby blankets.  I don't know where I'm going here.  I'd like to be more honest and open in my blog - I'm really aware of a kind of face I put on when I'm blogging that's full of exclamation marks and upbeatness that really doesn't come naturally to me!  Oops there's one again.

Anyway, here's my bump at 31 weeks.  Not long to go now, or at least I keep telling everyone.
