A vintage mothers adventure.

So here is my news. I probably sound a little mad, no in fact definitely sound like a mad crazy woman. But this is it.
 After receiving an email from a lovely lady that reads my blog that went along the lines of,

 'I love reading your vintage family posts on your blog. You couldn't be more right in your views. We could all learn a lot from them!. You should write a book!.'

 Well, I think I'm going too!!. Yes, your right I haven't a clue how to write a book. Or even where to start but from that one little email I have this idea. An idea along the lines of;

 'A vintage mothers guide to life'.

Imagine a book full of nostalgic ideas, views, real life experience all from yester year. Then having a manual on how to bring those into your modern family life. How to incorporate the wonderfulness that was the 1950's family. From family time, holidays, housekeeping EVERYTHING!. The years gone by had some seriously good stuff going on and I am so passionate about bringing them into the modern family and I truly believe they can help provide a stable, happy, healthy lifestyle.

 So this is it, the first day of my writing adventure. My year 6 teacher Miss O'Hara told me that one day I would be a writer. I got a little preoccupied somewhere between 6th form and motherhood but this is it!. I'm going to go for it. It may be a book, a manual or just something for me to hand down to my daughter. But whatever it will turn out to be, I have nothing to loose. And I am so excited.

  1. Do it! I'd definitely buy such a book, and I think our messed up world needs it right now. I've always wanted to write a book too (I like writing fiction) so understand how exciting a new idea can be. Lots of luck!

  2. How exciting, save me a copy! x
