Family Time

All change

All change, welcome to The Bluenosers.

Ok, so here is the thing. Just over a year ago I decided to properly give this whole blogging thing a go. In reality I just wanted to have an outlet for being a bit more creative in the kitchen. Which was, and is, my primary area of the house. I also wanted to get better at my photography, which frankly at the time a monkey could have achieved.

In any case, things have a way of changing. You see, also about a year ago my husband and I decided that we really wanted to have a family. So we started down the adoption track.

Adoption journey

Just before Christmas, we were told that might be about to happen. Sure enough, in the next few weeks, if all goes according to plan, our family will be doubling in size. Which is quite surreal, especially as I know they exist, I know where they are, but I’ve not yet met them. I keep clinging to the few photographs I have of both of them.

This has meant a series of rapid changes in our household. For starters, I’m writing this while taking a break from seemingly endless painting of walls. Secondly, my budget brain has kicked in, and meals have become a lot less extravagant.

Which brings me back to this blog. Originally I called it RoughEats because it was meant to represent that fact that my cooking abilities, while tasty, were always going to be a bit more rustic. Now, with the nearing prospect of fatherhood, I decided I wanted to make a change. So I’ve changed the name and am calling it the Bluenosers. Why? Well, for starters if I am able to keep this blogging thing up, I’m likely going to be inserting stories from our struggles and joys of fatherhood. Secondly, because while I’m not in Nova Scotia, my boys are going to know they are Nova Scotian.
So, while food recipes will be forthcoming, don’t be surprised if they also include stories of the great achievements in life (such being able to sleep in until 7am).

It’s all change in our house.



ps – A small note here. While I know a good number of bloggers out there do put their kids faces on their blogs, and some even name them, I can’t and won’t be doing the same. There area multitude of reasons for this, but thanks for understanding.
