Well...


Yes, it has been a while hasn't it?

And it's time to revive this little blog of mine.

I would like to tell you all, that the reason I haven't been blogging is due to a few hundred fabulous things...but honestly they don't exist. Which doesn't mean life hasn't been fabulous, just fabulous in a every day kinda way.

Which means I don't have a list of updates to even give you...expect for...

Our little family has grown by two little bulldog boys. And oh my gosh have they kept us busy. I will be posting more about them later, but what I can tell, is that these two little guys have been such a blessing...because, not only are they just so damn cute, but they have been keeping our minds off the other 'big' thing in our lives...

The long journey to have kids.
I have spoken a few times before about wanting to have kids, and a year ago we officially moved it into high gear and went to see a fertility clinic. It's been a year now {way longer, if you include the time we tried on our own}, and we have been through a number of treatments, and...as you can gather...we are still trying. I won't bore you with all the details, but do know that we are still trying, we are so positive...and even though it's taken a huge toll on us, we are good...very good.

I having been umm'ing and ahh'ing about telling everyone, but it's you guys after all...

So yes, I am very much back, and will be back posting a few posts...

See you around these parts...

Hello you. Yes, i hear you - life plods along very happily without massive headlines and blogging seems rather inane…and at other times the stuff in your life is just too big and the words don't translate in a post. YOur bullies make my day as i page through insta in the mornings so i can well imagine the light and love they bring to you both in this time.

Welcome back my dear friend. It is so good to hear from you...and now we will do what good friends do...and pray for your little baba to become a reality.

Oh yeah! You and Shayne in one day! Mel certainly got you all going.

I love the chronicles of your boys - they keep me entertained. They are just so cute

And sorry to hear about your journey - so many people are struggling and although I have no idea how hard it can be we had a small taste with secondary infertility - and then twins. Wishing you lots of success, prayers and positive thoughts.

Jeanette said...

Yay you're back!!
Hope you get that positive soon. Trying is really soul destroying.

Shayne said...

My word. I think it was a day in history in the blogging world today!

Love seeing what little (not so anymore) Charlie and Henry are up too, they are seriously cute.

And as Lynette says, we'll just pray.

Good to have you back xx

I had no idea you were trying - my comments at the blog meet up must have been very insensitive :( I am sorry!! I thought you were still not sure about having kids.

Hayley said...

Not insensitive at all Laura :-)

It's lovely to read an update from you. I'm following you on Instagram and FB and love the photos of the dogs. So cute :)

All will be well my dear Hayley! Keep trusting and believing and all things will happen. We also had our own battles and now we have the little baba. If it happened for us I trust and believe that it will happen for you. Hugs
