In case of confusion.....

Last night hubby sat down to have a look at my blog. He said he loved the photos but that it was confusing and didn't make much sense. It's always nice to have a second opinion - even one as brutally honest as his!

I had a look and couldn't understand what he meant. It made sense to me. But then, of course it would, I wrote it. I know the whole 'behind the scenes' story and can make the connections. But now I realise that he's probably right. I enjoy doing my blog for me and, if I'm honest, I never thought that anyone else would be interested. I see that there are some lovely people out there that seem to be taking an interest, I think that perhaps an explanation is needed, in case of confusion!

All my life I've been a bit of a nomad. If I say that I've lived in 16 different towns in 3 different countries up to now, then it goes a little way to explaining it. The UK, France and Spain have been the places where I've set up my tent (not literally, you understand, I don't actually live in a tent but sometimes I think it would be easier!) but I've also travelled further afield to visit other places. And there are still a helluva lot of places still that I would love to visit.

At the beginning we moved every time my Dad got a new position with his job, and for the last 5 years I've moved with hubby because he works on industrial projects. They normally start out being for 6 months but tend to run on a bit longer. Sometimes I feel that I don't belong anywhere, but then, why not belong everywhere?

So the nomadic life has been with me forever and now it doesn't seem such a big trauma to pack everything up and move on to somewhere new. There are lovely people to be found in each place and I've loved living in every town that I've been up to now. Each place is special and has it's own special memories. And I'm getting to be quite an expert - I can find somewhere to live and be more or less settled and finding my way around in about 2 weeks now!

So this blog is really a place where I share my memories and photos of places I've been and, hopefully, my new ideas. A place where anything goes and everything is worth noting down. I hope that it doesn't sound confusing, but then, I suppose that life can sometimes just get that way.

Is your life straight forward? Or do you find it whizzing off at weird but interesting angles? Tell me your story, I'd love to know. I'm sure that I'm not the only nomad out there....
